Gary Johnson sets his sights on Obama, Romney

Former GOP presidential candidate Gary Johnson won and accepted the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party on Saturday, which his campaign said earns him a spot on November ballots in all 50 states.

Johnson, a former governor of New Mexico and business owner, won the nomination with more than 70% of the vote at the party convention in Las Vegas. He entered the Libertarian primary race after dropping his 2012 Republican bid in late December.

    Love the comment about the torture rack, Gary! I appreciate your forthrightness and ability to address the fact we still have the freedom to choose liberty or death. Thank you, Erin, for allowing Gary the chance to speak. He is more than qualified to lead the country, and regardless of the phantom 15% polling rule, he should be allowed to debate Romney and Obama. As well, I would like to see Judge Jim Gray appear on the show. Thank you.

    Whats that got to do with Gary Johnson setting sights on Obama, and our hockey puck peep hole cam says it was only yesterday the ear nibbler went all the way? Maybe eye am wrong? The command came all the way from the top from what I hear.

    No not funny?

    Unfortunately I'm not sure anyone knows enough about libertarianism for Gary to gain enough strength to take down either of the establishment parties.
