Newstalgia Reference Room - Remember . . .Ross Perot? A 1996 National Press Club address and Q&A with third party Presidential Candidate Ross Perot. Recorded October 20, 1996.
January 26, 2012

Ross Perot - fell off the radar after 2008.

I suppose he's a bit conspicuous by his absence, but you don't really hear very much about Ross Perot lately. The guy who, in 1992 and 1996 was going to "shake things up". The guy who ran a somewhat haywire campaign and suddenly dropped out in 1996 and the guy who, as irony would have it, was a big supporter of Mitt Romney during his 2008 Presidential bid.

But he's been out of the picture the last four years. Or maybe he's bubbling under it. Still early I suppose. But you have to wonder . . .

In any event, in case you missed him the first (or second) time around, here is an address and Q&A session he did at The National Press Club, recorded on October 20, 1996.

Can you help us out?
