A comment I used to hear a lot during Gary Johnson’s two terms as governor was, “Gary is just Gary.”
Gary being Gary made him an ineffective governor, but as a candidate for president? Bring him on!
That’s because, in these times of the coached, coifed and vacuum-sealed candidate with the entourage of handlers and spinners, the candidate who manages to be just himself is a breath of fresh air.
When Johnson makes a statement, we know it’s his honest opinion and not the product of focus groups and polls.
Johnson doesn’t pander.
His contribution to the next election cycle could be his willingness to tell us what we don’t want to hear and challenge other candidates who take the easier path. That’s either brash or brave.
The real irony in Johnson’s campaign is that in not trying to be all things to all people, in just being Gary, he does offer a little something for everyone – after his own fashion. Always described as “libertarian-leaning” and not out-and-out libertarian, his smorgasbord of views will find support and brickbats across the political spectrum.
