I watched part of the second Libertarian Town Hall on CNN tonight.
As much as I loathe both Hillary and Trump, nothing either he or William Weld persuaded me to cast a ballot for them.
As before, Weld is a far better communicator than Johnson. But Weld made a point of defending FBI Director’s James Comey decision not to recommend an indictment of Hillary Clinton. This isn’t exactly an objective opinion given that Weld and Hillary go back more than four decades to the Watergate hearings. Honestly, I think he’s making a play for a position in a Hillary cabinet. It wouldn’t be such a stretch of the imagination. After all, Weld was appointed to be Ambassador to Mexico by President Clinton until Jesse Helms put the kibosh on that nomination.
Anderson Cooper asked Johnson about tonight’s possible terrorist attack in London and Johnson basically said that these things happen. That simply won’t do. It doesn’t inspire confidence. Nor does it inspire confidence when Johnson buys into Black Lives Matter hook, line and sinker.
Honestly I doubt if the Libertarian ticket gets to the 15% necessary to be invited to the debates. The only way I see that happening is if Johnson a) smokes a big fat doobie on stage or b) poses topless to show off his ripped chest.
In the grand scheme of things, I wouldn’t mind if Gary Johnson were to be my personal trainer. I just don’t think I’ll vote for him to be my President.
