Gary Johnson“Libertarian” Candidate – is Out of His Element

In an interview with the Daily Caller, presumptive Libertarian Party nominee for president Gary Johnson tries heartily to describe his foreign policy…or at least a foreign policy. Plainly put, the man is confused. He says he supports U.S. military intervention in Uganda to root out the Lords Resistance Army and kill its leader, Joseph Kony. He thinks the drone war in Pakistan and Yemen creates more enemies than it eliminates, but doesn’t want to take drone strikes off the proverbial “table.” He wants to “completely withdraw our military presence” from Afghanistan, but wants to keep our military bases there. In fact, U.S. military bases should be maintained throughout the Middle East, he says, even though America faces “no military threats.” He supports “humanitarian intervention.": http://antiwar.com/blog/2012/04/12/gary-johnson-libertarian-...

GJ speaking yesterday

“I am the only candidate that doesn’t want to bomb Iran,” Johnson said, receiving a smattering of applause and laughter. Johnson said he wants to end all foreign wars, including the one in Afghanistan immediately, as well as slash the defense budget by 43 percent, but protect veterans’ benefits.

Foreign policy not his strong point..yet.

He is a little shaky on foreign policy in this interview. Israel does a good interview.

The Gov. is a good study and getting better.

"The Gov. is a good study and getting better."

I don't want someone studying while President. We have been experiencing first hand the devastation of this concept for the last fifty years. We need someone with a firm grasp of the rule of law and personal freedom to be in charge i.e. Ron Paul.

Dr. Paul is out

Leno was the "big moment", it didn't happen.

Regarding foreign policy the Gov. has the right philosophy and is open & learning. Compare to the other two.

I've never seen that interview before..

I have supported Gary Johnson and will continue to do so with a much more confident approach because of that interview on Ron Paul Flix.

Thank-you!

Love thy enemy.

Really approachable

The same day as the interview Gov. Johnson met with a small group in Downtown Denver at an Irish Pub to meet & greet.

He was extremely open and answered any & all questions freely. If he wasn't sure he said so. If he had a differing opinion he said so & why without dodging.

Afterwards I spoke to him about entrepreneurship and how we have this chance to pull ourselves out of this economic mess by innovating. He took off with the subject, very passionate. He related this back to the nation saying we need to free up the market and create 50 laboratories of innovation. If we eliminate the regulations on starting a business more people will make the leap.

We also spoke about athletics, I was amazed he is 59 and was about to do the Leadville 100 MTB Race: http://www.leadvilleraceseries.com/ You have to qualify for this race and it is brutal.

All around, a very positive man. He never spoke negatively about the competition, just what he would change, do better or differently.

What does Ron Paul say about Gary Johnson?

Ron Paul says, “I think he’s wonderful, and I think he’s doing a good job..."

why should...

a woman be allowed to kill a kid? that's a big down side. too big.

Not even close!Ron Paul Only for me!

He's just another one of them too me

A shill, trying to once again, get us to compromise on our PRINCIPLES!

These people do not understand that, because THEY HAVE NO PRINCIPLES, they dont even understand the idea of principles.

GJ now appears to be the lessor of 3 evils.

I'm praying for Ron Paul to make a hail Mary play.
