Former Governor Buddy Roemer Stops By Comedy Central's  The Colbert Report

Former Louisiana Governor, Buddy Roemer made an impression on WGNO's political analyst, Jeff Crouere.

Crouere watched Romer on Comedy Central's, "The Colbert Report", Thursday night.

"I think he did great.  He seems like he was having fun with it," Crouere said.

Roemer announced on July 21st he would run for President in 2012.  He chose Comedy Central as one media outlet to show off his platform, when rival GOP candidate, Herman Cain backed out at the last minute.

"It might be something that will pay off for him. He might get more attention than he got before," Crouere said. 

Roemer's not your traditional candidate.  He's already said he won't take any special interest group funding to run his campaign.

"I think what he's saying is he's different,"  Crouere said.

He said that Roemer's chances of landing the nomination are 100 to 1, but appearing on Comedy Central shouldn't hurt his credibility.

Crouere said, "He's reaching a younger audience, who might be more in tune with his grass roots message."

A few local voters don't agree.  They said Comedy Central is the las place they want to see a presidential candidate.

"If you're running for president, you shouldn't try to be a comedian from the get-go,"  Republican, Bobby Mcnamara said.

"I don't think it'll help him.  I think it's a little disrespectful in some ways because you want to take your president seriously,"  Bridgitt Leblanc said.

Victoria Bush supports Roemer's appearance on "The Colbert Report."

"Comedy Central will help him, any national attention for a Louisiana politician is good exposure," she said.

Roemer's campaign manager, Carlos Sierra said since the presidential hopeful's appearance on the show, they've seen more traffic to their website, and Facebook and Twitter pages.
