FORT WAYNE, Indiana (Indiana's NewsCenter)-Move over Mitt, retreat Rick, not now Newt…there’s a new contender in town. Michael Radke, a retired metal worker, part time woodworker from Whitley County is running as a write-in candidate for president of the United States. He’s serious about it, and if anyone wants a sense of the frustration many Americans feel with our political process, just listen to candidate Radke.

“I’m willing to take on Mr. Obama, make him prove his citizenship because that’s a very important issue. I bought and paid for my Social Security, you did too. Why are they playing with it? It was going good then Congress started borrowing from it. Medicare, stay with Medicare, we’ve got problems with Medicare but we know what they are. Look right here in Indiana, Mitch Daniels, there’s a good example of somebody trying to privatize. Look at the welfare look what he did it’s screwed up messed. Do I need to say more? I’m at odds with the Tea Party they’re so ultra conservative they’re not even looking at common sense. Sounds to me as though you got as many complaints about the republicans as the democrats. Either side, hey, you put ‘em in a sack and shake ‘em up and pour it out it’s still a bunch of crap. I hate it when I do down and have to say at the primary which side do I want to vote for because I have no love for either side. One last think I want to ask about, Osama Bin Laden wanted dead or alive, Barack Obama got him Okay, okay. It’s inauguration day you’re in Washington you’re about to make your Presidential inauguration speech, what would you say to the American people? Welcome back to America.
