Forget Palin, here's Gary Johnson - CNN.com
yet another a long-shot candidate? I'm so sick of them.
So you prefer the status-quo candidates?
The "long shot candidates" have been some of the best President's we've had. Harding and Coolidge come to mind.
I am alittle hesitant about electing another President Johnson, we haven't had the best track record with them. Course, both of them weren't per se elected originally.
Johnson spoke at " + artTitle.replace("-","") + " - " + "The Ram" + " - " + "News" + " " + artTitle.replace("-","") + " - " + "The Ram" + " - " + "News" + " and he sounds smart on drug policy, but when he gets into Foreign Policy, he gets too simplistic and weird for me: "We do not need to be building roads and airports in Afghanistan," he said. "Especially when our own infrastructure is in such bad shape, we should not be doing this."
While it is easy to agree at face value with what he says, any deeper understanding into why we are building infrastructure in Afghanistan would take one into discussions of geopolitics and national security.
the man is a simplistic ideologue, stuck on stupid with theory vs practicality and reason.
For the Executive, I prefer reasonable and balanced political leaders. Johnson is an ideologue with little experience. Obama was a pol with little experience and less ideology strapped under his vest. People like Johnson are always terrible in practice/real life, where theory and ideology run up against the real world. .
Since when has Obama not been strapped with idealogy?
Little experience? He was Governor for 8 years.
It should also be pointed out that we only ever apply the term "ideologue" to somebody that we don't agree with. The simple fact of the matter is that anybody with an opinion is an ideologue. I have an ideology, you have an ideology, Johnson has an ideology, and Obama has an ideology. We're all ideologues.
let me see...
He was supposed to be a leftist, yet he pissed off the left. he was supposed to be anti-war, yet he pissed off the anti-war people.
let me count the ways Obama proved by his actions to NOT be an ideologue stuck on stupid and we'd be here all day.
