    Seriously? No one? This is a great day for America. Republicans actually have someone who walks the walk instead of just talking the talk. Johnson is exactly what this nation needs......and needs now.

    Sort of thin resume, isn't it? I mean, he has more experience than Obama but so what? Any kid who runs a lemonade stand has more experience than Obama.

    Eight years as Governor, 750 vetoes, a balanced budget, a budget surplus, etc... etc... is a thin resume?

    He was elected twice and never held national office. Yeah, that's thin.

    Not to make any assumptions about who you might support, or not support, but strictly for comparative purposes, what about Mitt Romney? I've never heard anybody say he has a thin resume, and he only served one term. I think winning two statewide elections in a majority Democratic state as a Republican certainly counts for something.

    i heard him on dylan rattigan's show today. he sounded interesting at first.


    then he was asked about getting special interest money out of politics with some type of constitutional amendment (something i would actually support)...

    and he punked out. said he was very comfortable with the electoral system.

    same ole same ole.

    Well what's the alternative? If somebody wants to donate their money to a politician's campaign I don't see why they shouldn't be able to.

    not people... corporations.

    but if you want oil and insurance companies buying your presidents. :thup:

    the answer is to government fund campaigns. then you get reasonable candidates and not bought and sold hacks.

    that's what you want, right?
