Interview with That Mr. G Guy

Pundit Press is proud to present its 22nd interview in our ongoing series. Today we're interviewing Mike, the founder of That Mr. G Guy's Blog. Make sure to head over there and check out the site!

1. When/why did you start That Mr. G Guy's Blog?

I started My blog around the middle of April,2010. Prior to that, I had been a guest commentator at Smash Mouth Politics. The proprietor of SMP, "John Doe" told me how easy it was to start my own blog and suggested I do so. I still post at SMP occasionally. I'm not a professional journalist, but have been interested in writing for years and thought this would be a good way to get my foot in the door.

2. What is your favorite part of running your site?

The ability to give my own take on the issues of the day and the interaction with the readers, plus the give and take of a spirited debate. Since my blog is still small, I don't have the problems with ad hominem attacks that are prevalent on larger blogs.

3. What is your favorite topic to write about?

Probably Economics, although I'll write about almost anything. I also like to try my hand occasionally at writing a little fiction or relate a story about the goings on around my little part of the world. I'm not an Economist, but with over half a century under my belt and having been out in the "real world", I believe I can give a layman's perspective to the Economic problems we're faced with today.

4. Has President Obama been better or worse than expected?

President Obama has been a little worse than I expected. I knew he was pretty far to the left, but didn't realize how far left until he got his massive "de-stimulus" bill passed and the ramming of the ill advised health care reform bill down our throats even though all the polls showed that a majority of Americans were against it. He has no concept of what the Constitution means or else he knows, but ignores it. His knowledge of foreign policy is non existent. In my opinion, he has surpassed Jimmy Carter as the worst President ever.

5. Any favorites for 2012 yet?

No one that has actually threw their hat in the ring impresses me. We can't throw the same old retreads up against Obama and expect to win. My candidate would be Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina if he changes his mind about running. My previous choice would have been Governor Mark Sanford, also from South Carolina until he made his big moral mistake. If I had to vote for someone other than my choice, it would probably be Sarah Palin.

6. What frustrates you the most about liberals?

Everything! Seriously, what frustrates me the most about Liberals is the fact that if there's a problem or crisis, their first inclination is to let government fix it. Their second inclination is to let government fix it. Liberals will always opt for a government solution over a free market solution. And you can't have a sensible discussion with a liberal. Even when the facts are stacked against them, you're always wrong and they're always right.

7. Anything else you'd like to add?

Just that I've been reading you blog for a long time now and appreciate the effort you and the other writers put into your articles. I also appreciate the interview. Here's hoping we can gain the House, Senate and Presidency in 2012.

  1. President Teddy Roosevelt said "Speak softly and carry a big stick." Guess which President says "Teleprompt loudly and hoist a white flag!" (To see a related web article that some have banned, Google "Obama Fulfilling the Bible.")
