Interview with the Simo Project

Pundit Press is proud to present interview number 52 in our ongoing series. Today, we're interviewing Mike from the Simo Project. Check out the Simo Project-- a site we're happy to have on our blogroll.

1. When and why did you start the Simo Project?

I started the site in June of 2011. It was something I'd wanted to do for some time, but with a regular day job and life's other obligations, it was always just something on the back burner. Then, in May of 2011, I was laid off, downsized, after 20 years with the same small company. Looking for a job in a jobless market takes time, and now, with plenty of time on my hands, I decided to try to combine a frustrated writer hobby with a news and opinion junkie attitude.

2. What is the best part of running your site?

The sheer joy of writing. It's work, and a lot of reading and researching, but with a curious nature, it's also a lot of fun, and even aggravating, but that's all part of the process.

3. Do you see President Obama being re-elected in November?

I'm praying the answer is "No!" I'm fearing too many will fall for his same flowery prose that helped him win his first term. And with no strong Republican opposition, I see odds on re-election at about 50/50.

4. What has been the best and worst moments of the present administration?

The best: bin Laden is dead. The worst: everything else.

5. Who would be your ideal conservative candidate for President?

Unfortunately, my top two picks dropped out. That would be Bachmann and Cain. Ron Paul would be the most Constitutionally minded. It's sad that he's derided by so many for his belief in our Founding Documents.

6. Anything else you'd like to add?

Thank you for the interview, the addition of thesimoproject on the blogroll, and all the good work and good reading on Pundit Press.
