Video of Virgil Goode’s Announcement of Presidential Candidacy

Virgil Goode recently announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States in 2012 in New York City. This video does not capture the entire thing, and the wind obscures a bit of the sound, but the basic idea is there.

    I can’t hear it on the computer I’m on because the sound doesn’t work, but visually I have some concerns. The four people behind him holding signs looks bad. You either need a lot of people to make it look like there is a lot of enthusiasm, or none at all. He should have made the announcement alone behind a podium so as to look like he is intentionally making the announcement alone and decrease the appearance of a sparse crowd that the four sign holders conveys.

    The homeless guy that is continually running for mayor of my city could plan a better announcement than that.

    Red is correct about the problems with the visual (and the audio — has he never heard of boom mics or sound systems?), but the announcement itself was good. Goode is a polished speaker, and while his issues seemed a bit stale (small government, balanced budget, border security, and term limits), he did a great job of staying away from the foreign policy positions he’s had problems with in the past; in fact, he didn’t mention foreign policy at all. I could get behind this guy if I were a CP member.

    I don’t know, I like the four people behind him. All of them (except perhaps the guy on the far left) are dressed formally, clearly showing that they are part of the campaign structure. It projects more of a republican (lower case “r”) image than the sort of democratic-populism that a crowd would send. Certainly if they were just four guys standing up there it wouldn’t be the same, but the way they worked it out it has lots of old school conservative intellectualism. Plus, it makes it seem more like a statement by the party than a single candidate.

    That being said, the content of the announcement was very Goode-ish: no specific cuts, no monetary policy, no foreign policy, no trade policy, and way too much time talking about term limits and Political Action Committees.

    I know this is not the proper thread, because I forgot which one I posted on, but it did focus on CP candidates.

    I had posted that a California CP member filed paperwork with the Missouri SOS to run for office. The original name was Ana Zorikov.

    The listing has changed now. The name is Anatol and the address is not Encino it is Lebanon.

    Sorry. I didn’t know you could change the file with the SOS.
