Co-Editor and Co-Founder of The Freedomist, Bill Collier, was interviewed by JAMES HOHMANN for Politico. We will give you a full report on all that Bill Collier shared with james Hohmann that was not included in the quotes Hohmann used for the article:
“I vote for the platform, not the man,” said Pennsylvania blogger Bill Collier, who runs Fredomist.com (note: Bill Collier is Co-editor of The Freedomist, along with Paul Collier) and supported Newt Gingrich’s bid for the nomination. “If the platform comes out weak, my enthusiasm will dramatically drop because I’ve got a guy I’m not enthused about. I could overcome that if you give me a good platform.”
Collier and everyone else buzzed over how much the Romney pick for vice president will be a big sign of Romney’s ideological leanings as president. Attendees touted everyone from Marco Rubio to Allen West and Rand Paul.
“If he picks a typical political insider — [former Minnesota governor] Tim Pawlenty would be a terrible choice, for instance — he could even throw his own election because there would be enough doubt brought into it,” said Collier, 44. “Why are we going to fight so hard for this?”
