To the surprise of almost no one, Gary Johnson bid a less than fond farewell to the Republican Party a couple of weeks ago.
Whereupon, he signed on as a member of the Libertarian Party and announced that he will seek that party’s presidential nomination this year.
That Johnson opted to make the Libertarian Party his political home is understandable.
Philosophically, the former-Republican former governor has always evidenced libertarian propensities with an ill-disguised disdain for government and what he deems its intrusive role in human affairs.
Nor is his quest of the Libertarians’ presidential nomination in the least unexpected.
Johnson has views he wants to propound. His attempt to use the 2012 Republican presidential nominating process as a platform for advancing those views came to naught.
Indeed, Gary Johnson was treated quite shabbily by the Republican establishment and TV outfits that shut him out of all but two of those mind-numbing Iowa candidate debates where every declared GOP contender save New Mexico’s former-governor had a chance to flounder and fizzle on live television.
All that notwithstanding, Johnson has his work cut out for him between now and May 4 when Libertarian delegates convene in Las Vegas, Nev., to pick their presidential nominee.
