Cynthia McKinney Radio Interview Asks About Potential of Her Being Green Candidate for President

Published on May 28, 2007, by in General.

On May 25, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney participated in a 23-minute interview on Radio Station WBAI. The hosts asked her about the possibility that she may seek the Green Party presidential nomination in 2008. She said, “With the failure of the Democratic Congress to repeal the Patriot Act, the Secret Evidence Act, the Military Tribunals Act, I have to seriously question my relationship with the Democratic Party. The idea has not been ruled out. All the current Democrats running for president support the principle of potential military action against Iran; none of them is for impeachment of the President. They can’t speak for me. I am open to a lot of ideas in 2008.” Thanks to Darcy Richardson for this news.

    I’m not a Green, but I like a lot of what Cynthia McKinney has done and I think that she’d be one of the best candidates that the Green Party could have.

  5. She announced today that she was giving up her protest.

  6. Phil Sawyer

    There are already four candidates for the Green Party nomintion who are actually announced candidates: Kat Swift, Nanette Garrett, Elaine Brown, and Alan Augustine.

    None of the other leftist political parties have any announced candidates, so far, at all!

  7. Matthew

    There has got to be a bigger name out there than those four. I’ll take McKinney over no names. We need to get on the freaking map again!

  8. Phil Sawyer

    So far Cynthia McKinney is not a candidate. If she were to announce then I would consider her qualifications along with those of all the other candidates.

    There is little point in speculating about what person might make the best candidate. In the end, we can only choose from those candidates who are actually on the ballot (unless one wants to go the write-in route – which is usually pretty much of a lost cause before it even begins).

  9. Curtis

    How about Al Gore? He believes in many of the precepts to be able to run Green. His name is big, and he would be the best thing that’s happened to the Green’s in recent times.

  10. Casey

    Oh my! Are you greens so whacky that you’d have McKinney on your ticket because people recognize her NAME??? No wonder nobody takes you kookburgers seriously!

  11. Randy

    Run Cindy run! Maybe it’ll distract the mentally dysfunctional with a political focus and they’ll leave the rest of us alone.

  12. Etta Pointer

    Cynthia would have made a good PRISSY in the movie Gone With The Wind and the comment ~ Lawzy, we got to have a doctor. I don’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ babies would fit her knowledge of politics in 2007.

  13. Fred Thompson

    Cynthia McKinney is a fruitcake! She would make a perfect candidate for all the rest of you fruitcakes! Bring her on, this will be fun!

  14. Jon Carry

    The Green moonbat whackos deserve Cynthia McKinney! She will be a great candidate! Think of the entertainment value!

  15. Sal Reale

    Matthew wants a leftist lunatic to run as a Green Party candidate so that they can get back on the map. Back on the map? What map? Nader ran actively in 2000 as the candidate of the Green Party. That year, he received 2.74% of the popular vote, missing the 5% needed to qualify the Green Party for federally distributed public funding in the next election. He didn’t run in 2004, in order not to screw Kerry up.

  16. George Bush

    Now Cymfia, settle down!

  17. Moses

    Yes! McNinney and Al “I’ll sell you crab Indulgences” Gore!. Let them both run. Then all the irrelevant twits can vote for the same couple of people.

    BWAHAHHA! This will really do wonders for the value of the Greens.

  18. megapotmus

    Gore/McKinney? Glorious. Two whacked out retards leading a party of dozens of the same. Well, that’s what makes America great.

  19. Joe Mama

    Run Cynthia run! You and Cindy Sheehan are both disillusioned Democratic drop outs, what a Green Dream Team! Two Cindy’s for the price of one! It’s a no brainer!

  20. Love Free

    Gore/McKinney…Cindy Sheehan for Secy of State…John Edwards as AG….Ralph Nadir as Secy for Consumer Rights …Teddy Kennedy for Secy of Lewd, Lascivious and Licentious behavior…John Kerry to head the CIA, since he thinks he is the only one with Intelligence…John Conyers in charge of Prosecuting the Bush Administration for whatever he can think of…

  21. Love Free

    Henry Waxman for Secy of Gay Rights….Al Sharpton for Secy of Victims Rights…Jesse Jackson as Secy of Extortion…

  22. Dave LeBlanc

    Yes, by all means, get McKinney to run. Run, Cynthia, run. Run, run, run.

    Every Presidential race needs a good goofball and she is the queen of goofballs. Her anti-semitic bit seems to play real well these days on the left.

  23. 1618

    I can’t believe there is anyone stupid enough to vote for that ignorant woman…If you are stupid enough to support her, you deserve her and everything you get from her as a result…

  24. Michael Perry

    McKinney for President? You have my vote. Where can I sent a check?

  25. Michael Perry

    Correction: McKinney for President? You have my vote. Where can I send a check?

  26. not even a frost in hades would get me to vote for her. consider however,that we live in a representative republic,and we really do get the representation we deserve.

  27. GopLady

    Cynthia McKinney? ROFLMBO!!!!

  28. iZune

    McKinney for President? Good God yes, but why waste her many talents on the Green Party? Cindy belongs at the head of the Democratic ticket.

  29. Phil Sawyer

    Sal Reale is mistaken. Ralph Nader did run for president in 2004. He was an independent candidate and he received the nomination of the Reform Party and some other parties too.

  30. Champ

    It’s funny how people continue to critisize Mckinney. Yet, no one can articulate just what what makes her postions so far fetched. Please, can someone tell me why Mckinney is “crazy”?

  31. Matthew

    She hit a cop… But look at her record as a congresswoman, she really has fought for the disenfranchised. Check out her documentary “American Blackout”. She’s the only one who had the cajones to invesigate when Bush’s cronies stole the 2000 election in Florida.

  32. Matthew

    I found American Blackout on google video. ENJOY!

    Cynthia McKinney gives a great handjob, if you know what I mean. And remember, my name says it all!!

  34. Hello! Good Site! Thanks you! bwqfcpyjqes

  35. See this video in which she talks about her plans for 2008. There’s much more direct references to a 2008 campaign than the WBAI interview.

  36. Ecosanda

    Haven’t you ever got so mad at being mistreated so many times, that you hit someone. I know I have, and I am a pacifist. Cynthia didn’t hit a real cop, she hit an ignorant, palace guard, I mean congressional guard. Watch the video
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2508693105235438933 and hear her tale. She has certainly done far more right, I mean correctly, not deserving the criticism resulting from one moment of frustration driven poor judgement. She has the courage to stand up to the lies of the current administration, which is more than I can say for the vast majority of her Democratic peers, even the so called Progressive Caucus. It would take a lot for a person who has had support from her Democratic constituency to give up that support to strike out into the unknown of working with a 3rd party who shares many of her dream for people, but has few financial resources to offer her. Of course Green campaign funds are worth 10 times as much as that of the Democrats because of people commitment. I hope she does choose to run as a Green.

  37. Richard

    McKinney was one of the first, if not THE first, politicians to stand against the war and she had the courage to stand against Bush while the democrats bent over and dropped their pants.

    McKinney was also one of the first politiians in the country to take a firm stand against electronic voting fraud and she was there when the fraud was conclusively proven at the Leon County, Florida hack .. while the democrats did essentially nothing while the elections of 2000 and 204 were being stolen right in front of their faces.

  38. Tyler Chimley

    I think she will bring honesty and justice to her campaign. Also I think She will put bush and company in jail when she takes office, something that the gop is fearful of. Also seems she is creating as quoted from site “the most advanced social-network ever developed for a Presidential campaign”. I think
    if she creates the most powerful tool available for her party and usses technology like no candidate has ever before, she could have a serious impact on the elections. Using today’s technology for her campaign is brilliant!
    You can find her secret campaign site here, looks like its still in beta but works

    hey I went to her new site mckinney2008 and it was badass!

    thanks!

    The Green Party must really be confused and desperate. After watching Cynthia McKinney’s behavior, hitting the Capitol Hill police officer, in 2006, I couldn’t imagine her running for dog catcher. Why would anybody in their right mind elect McKinney to anything … let alone the Presidency of the United States?
