We don't blame him, he was snubbed by the GOP and denied debates when he was polling at same rates as the minor candidates. At the same time, Johnson is not a Republican, He is a Libertarian. Many Libertarians end up in the GOP due to it being a power and money party that can move one along. He would have never become New Mexico Governor as a Libertarian. Outlook If Ron Paul is not the nominee and doesn't run as a third party candidate, Gary Johnson could get those votes. This could cost the GOP the Presidency. Governor Johnson will announce his intention to run as a Libertarian on December 28 There have been rumors circulating for a month or so now that former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was considering leaving the Republican race for the Presidency, where he’s [...]
Disgruntled former New Mexico governor Gary Johnsons ays he is considering leaving the Republican slate and running as a third-party candidate in the 2012 presidential election. "I feel abandoned by the Republican Party," Johnson, who has been left out of most of the Republican debates, told the Sante Fe New Mexican newspaper this week, saying he might seek the Libertarian Party's support. "The Republican Party has left me by the wayside," said Johnson, whose polling numbers have recently been so low that they are often not even being picked up by pollsters.

What America will miss at the Orlando GOP debate – McCotter goes three layers deep on the issues and political wow factor
By Albert N. Milliron We have received a release that says former Governor Gary Johnson will be included in the Debate in Orlando on September 22nd. Fox News says he has met the criteria of 1 percentage point in the five national polls prior to the debate. One problem, there is another candidate who has done just as well. This candidate also rated Below Newt Gingrich and Tied Rick Santorum in the California straw poll. That candidate is Michigan Congressman Thad McCotter. Gary Johnson came in tenth in that poll. Here is another issue, some of the polling organizations are not even including McCotter in their polls at all. So it is impossible for McCotter to meet the one percent criteria because he isn't being included. The last poll we looked at, The USA Today/Gallup [...]
Why do CNN and the media elite want to restrict your freedom to choose? Why is a successful two-term Governor and a proven job creator being excluded from the June 13th debate for low polling numbers, at a stage in the campaign when poll numbers are merely a measure of name recognition rather than real potential? via YouTube - Gary Johnson 2012: "Tell CNN".
The GOP primary field continues to dwindle. Following in the departing footsteps of Fox News host Mike Huckabee and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, who announced this weekend that he will not be running for president. Political commentators say Daniels' exit is good news for former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, but could it also be good news for former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson? Associate Editor Mike Riggs spoke with Johnson on Friday about President Barack Obama's Middle East speech, what role the U.S. should play in the Arab Spring, Johnson's support for Israel, and the problem his PAC faces in Utah. Reason: What did you think of President Obama's speech on Middle East policy? Gary Johnson: It kind of scares me, the notion that we’re going to be [...]
Make up your mind Willie... Oh That's right, you smoke pot every day! Seems that Willie, "Forgot" he endorsed Libertarian/Republican Gary Johnson and decided to get behind UFO Leftist Dennis Kucinich. He does have a Babe for a wife after all. Additionally as a Libertarian, Johnson might be against Farm subsidies, something Willie may have not thought about in that cloud of smoke. This from Teapot Party Blog. The Teapot Party began two days after Willie Nelson was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas on Nov. 28. He sent me an email suggesting the need for an alternative to the Tea Party – the “Teapot” Party. I started the Facebook page and and within 48 hours our nascent movement had 30,000 supporters. Nelson christened the party with the motto: “We lean a [...]
By Albert N. Miliron In the old news business it was very important to have a lead that was catchy. Those days of alliteration and shocking headlines have gone by the way side because on the internet word titles must be “keyword Rich” so that search engines can categorize and list your stories in the appropriate manner. There are no more children holding up a headline yelling, “Extra read all about it”. And a compelling headline positioned above the fold so you have to buy the paper to see what the EXTRA is all about. Our title is a fine example of what not to do in internet journalism or blogging. But honestly, we couldn’t resist. We went back to the good old days of journalistic trickery to emphasize what I thought the Greenville debate may have conveyed more than [...]
First in the South GOP Presidential Debate kicks off Election season Politisite and Iron Mill News Service will be covering the, "First in the South" GOP presidential debate live from Greenville, South Carolina. Much has changed from four years ago, when we covered the event for NowPublic by live blogging the debate as it unfolded. At that time, some of the print media looked at us crossed eyed and asked us to repeat several times what outlet we were from. Others thought that an Internet writer was the stupidest thing they ever heard and said they would survive long after, "bloggers" were gone. The joke was a bit on them as this writer was a former political operative and had been writing online since 1998 before anyone was called a, "blogger". Politisite.com was a [...]
