Daily Paul in order to check out the links you provided.
MY conclusion is that Gary Johnson is unpolished and was subject to a hit piece interview by the Daily Caller where he was tripped up. It wasn't pleasant to see but he did a hell of a lot better than Herman Cain did in a similar hit piece interview with the Washington Post (I think that was the newspaper).
Gary Johnson is not the Statesman that Ron Paul is. and I think we can agree that if given the choice Ron Paul is a lot better. But since we are NOT given a choice - Gary Johnson is the best alternative.
And I still wait for you to provide me reference from Ron Paul that he revoked his qualified endorsement.
Now - I have to go to bed - so flame away in my absence.
