Gary Johnson attacks Ron Paul on earmarks as his campaign is dying. Thanks Gary for your support, jerk.Submitted by Neverquit on Sat, 11/19/2011 - 20:42
Gary just lost my support.
Notice how he only takes a shot at Ron, making drugs the only thing he agrees with ron on but makes extremely passive statements about Romney and Gingrich.
Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, uninvited to 11 of 13 televised debates, says his campaign for president is dying.
He described himself as underexposed and mistreated, and said he probably cannot continue in the race much longer.
"There are five debates prior to the New Hampshire primary (on Jan. 10). If I'm shut out of all five, I don't see that I stand a chance in New Hampshire," Johnson said Friday in a wide-ranging, 50-minute interview. ...
Johnson is also tough on Gingrich, Romney and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
Of Romney he says: "I can't tell you where he stands on any issues at all."
On Gingrich: "I don't think he talks in specifics."
Johnson says Paul may come closest to his own views on certain issues, such as drug legalization. But Johnson says Paul acts in ways that he never could.
"He sticks his earmarks (spending projects) in the budget, but then votes against it. I can't do that. I can't play that kind of game," Johnson said. ...
New Mexico will have an open U.S. Senate seat in 2012 with the retirement of Democrat Jeff Bingaman. But Johnson said he would not jump into that race if his presidential campaign ends.
"I'm not interested in the Senate," he said.
