Meaner than Mitt Romney
I was honored to be invited to a Q&A session at a community center in New Haven, CT. For some reason when I received the invitation, I had confused “Q&A” with “T&A”. This explained why I was so enthusiastic in replying to the invitation. That was the first sign that this event was going to turn into a disaster.
The first question asked to me was who I thought won the debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney. I responded with “I won.” then explained that I wasn’t really paying attention to what they were saying as much as I was replying to the questions Jim Lehrer was asking.
I was asked my position on energy. Some of the people appreciated that my ideas covered a wide spectrum of ideas while critics thought it was all over the place with no clear direction. I agree with the former.
Someone thought if I would close PBS. I told the questioner that I would not close PBS but I would no longer fund it. I don’t understand why PBS needs government funding if they have so many fund drives on their networks or why they have so many fund drives if they need government funding. Then there are the millions given to PBS by various foundations. The questioner replied that I was meaner than Mitt Romney. I was ridiculed by someone who claimed to be a science teacher for my position on global warming. She claimed that my position was both simplistic and reckless.
I have another Q&A to attend tomorrow afternoon in Danbury, CT. I’m a little disappointed that it was scheduled at the same time the Redskins were playing, but it’s one of the things I am going to have to do if I want to be President of the United States.
