    With the 2016 prospects, I think that he'd do pretty good in the debates, however I'm almost happy he didn't enter into debates during the last cycle. As much as I like and support Gary Johnson, I've also listened to him talk and watched him debate in the past. He isn't the best public speaker and although he'd logically have the upper hand against either of the two corporate candidates from last election, I don't think he would've been able to out perform them in the debate. . . Nixon-Kennedy anyone.

    I voted for Gary Johnson in 2012. All the two major party candidates had to offer is business as usual and I didn't buy that. Both Obama and Romney owed their heart and soul to the special interests, lobbyist, corporations, Wall Street Firms, huge money donors, pacs and super pacs etc. I thought it time for a free agent that owed those moneyed folks nothing. In simplistic terms, I voted for the anti-business as usual candidate.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    For what it's worth he was one of the few sane ones in the GOP primary debates I watched back in 2012.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Gary Johnson wasn't in the GOP primary debates. He wasn't a Republican...

    Gary Johnson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On April 21, 2011 Johnson announced via Twitter, "I am running for president."[65] He followed this announcement with a speech at the New Hampshire State House in Concord, New Hampshire.[12] He was the first of an eventually large field to announce his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.[66]
    Johnson participated in the first of the Republican presidential debates, hosted by Fox News in South Carolina on May 5, 2011, appearing on stage with Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, and Rick Santorum.

    Not sure sanity sold well in that arena.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What he did was similar to Ron Paul in that he was widely known as a Libertarian Party member or at least had a libertarian bent but ran for President as a Republican.

    Well he didn't run as a Republican. He ran as a Libertarian. But I didn't know he had attempted to get the Republican nomination first.
