Jesse Ventura says Obama is basically the black George W. Bush

It's Obama's skin color, not his politics, that set him apart, Jesse said.

Jesse Ventura insulted Barack Obama with one of the worst slurs imaginable -- he called him the black George W. Bush.

During an interview with BuzzFeed Politics yesterday, Ventura was asked whether he prefers Obama or Romney. In reply, he said that anybody who reads his new book -- Democrips and Rebloodlicans -- understands that it's basically a choice between flat Coke and flat Pepsi.

"I don't know how they could possibly vote for a Democrat or Republican," Jesse said, adding that Obama and George W. are only distinguished by "the color of their skin."

"They're both bad," he continued. "I won't vote for either [Obama or Romney] because it doesn't matter."

If you're curious, The Body plans to vote for Libertarian candidate and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson. He said he plans to campaign often with Johnson between now and November, and lamented the fact that the credibility of third parties "is always destroyed by the mainstream media."

"[The MSM] usually label them a wingnut or have their little names for them," Jesse told BuzzFeed. "Both political parties and the media are owned by the corporations now."

Jesse also dropped some interested tidbits about his lifestyle during the BuzzFeed interview:
To reach Ventura, reporters have to call his hotel in New York, where he is staying under his real name (James Janos). Ventura does not have a cell phone and never plans to get one. "Who needs the aggravation?," he said. "Not only that, they can track you."...

In the years since his governorship, Ventura has stopped flying because he doesn't want to be "treated like a criminal at the airport."

This means that he took a train all the way from Minnesota to New York, which he can "handle better than the airport, being treated like a criminal and sexually assaulted."
Jesse has always been a free-thinking original. We can't think of a politician we'd rather be stuck on a cross-country train trip with.

He was actually a very good governor and left office with a surplus in the state treasury. Then Pawlenty ran the whole state into the ground and when he left office we had a deficit in the billions of dollars from his Republican spend and borrow strategy. And from cutting taxes for his rich buddys.

Boy, how fast people turn on Jesse when he dares to criticize Obama. Not a Jesse fan, but at least he thinks for himself.

I agree totally, Tammy. I still can't figure out how he got himself voted in as governor here in Minnesota... worst governor ever.

It would be more accurate to call Obama the black Richard Nixon. Romney is more like W. I guess in a contest between Nixon and W., I'd vote Nixon. Sad that it's come down to that.

Obama hasn't lied us into any wars, but he did keep us in Iraq and Afghanistan much longer than necessary, extended Bush's unconstitutional presidential power-grab, and is defending indefinite detention in court.

 @_Joe_ "As I mention in my book for sale I say something offensive to get coverage buy my book."   Pathetic Jesse has to race bait to sell books.  What a con artist. Shameful.

@MicheleBachmann: what's wrong with telling the truth, especially if it helps your book?

@MicheleBachman: there is no evidence to suggest the Osama assassination even happened, you obviously don't know anything about the Obamacare plan (insuring an additional 10 million people without adding a single new dr but adding 16,000 new IRS agents, not to mention the fact that it's impossible to pay for as we are basically bankrupt, passed by a congress who didn't read the bill but refuses to use the plan themselves), GM is heading for bankruptcy again. Calling him one of the 10 best presidents based on don't ask don't tell is retarded even for you. I love making fun of you though, keep that stupid coming.

 @mingtran If it was true Jesse and you would have cited reasons why its true.  Instead both you idiots merely race bait in a shocking and stupid way.   It's pathetic.  Racist dumbasses like you two can't handle that Obama is one of the 10 best Presidents we have ever had.   Barack Obama has very little in common with George W. Bush, one of the 5 worst Presidents of all time.  Obama has a long list of accomplishments like killing Bin Laden, saving GM, passing Obamacare, ending don't ask don't tell, and reforming student loans.   When peopel talk about Bush its about his long list of failures like letting 9/11 happen, torture, Abramhoff,  failing to kill Bin Laden, destroying New Orleans via stupidity, and destroying the economy.   Both Bush and Obama tried to kill Bin Laden, Bush couldn't do it in 7 years, Obama got it done in 3.   The only comparsion is how terrible Bush is compared to Obama.   See how I cite facts to support what I say?   it's much more effective than your and Jesse's pathetic trolling.
