Interview With Right Pundits

Today Jumping in Pools is proud to present interview number 105 in our ongoing series. Today we're interviewing one of the best conservative websites out there, Right Pundits. Be sure to check them out (if you haven't already) and bookmark them! Special thanks to Patrick for taking part in the interview.

1. When and why was Right Pundits created?

The Right Pundits political site was started in November 2006 as a forum for a broad spectrum ("big tent") of conservative thought. That first site has since expanded into 14 news sites which combined attract about 300,000 daily readers. My goal was quite simply to be influential by attracting readers who aren't necessarily expecting (or even wanting) to read conservative viewpoints. In contrast, most conservative political sites tend to circle the wagons talking chiefly among themselves.

2. Has President Obama been better or worse than you expected or feared?
I expected a person with no practical experience to be bad, but we got even worse.

3. Any favorites for 2012 yet?

Our writers have individual favorites. We have Mitt Romney supporters, Sarah Palin supporters, some enthusiasm for Newt Gingrich, and some hope that a governor will emerge without the baggage.

4. Would you support a "RINO" against Obama?

I reject the term RINO as meaningless and counterproductive. George Bush's big spending government policies are hardly better than Obama's and damaged the Republican brand by confusing the public about conservative principles. Was Bush II a RINO or a conservative? Barry Goldwater, the grandfather of the modern conservative movement, is a "true conservative" to some and a RINO to others. Ronald Reagan signed an abortion bill as governor of California and granted amnesty to millions of illegals. Was Reagan a RINO? I'll support the GOP candidate with the best chance of winning.

5. What is the worst/stupidest thing Obama has done so far?

Waging a damaging war on business.

6. Anything else you would like to add?

New contributors are welcome on Right Pundits, particularly writers with a passion for influencing the election outcome this November.
