Gary Johnson hasn’t forgotten who he is.
Maybe our former governor couldn’t elbow his way into Republican presidential debates, but he hasn’t been ignored by the media.
Recently, he was even on the Comedy Channel’s “Colbert Report,” where he held his own with comedian-satirist Stephen Colbert – no easy feat. I once harpooned Johnson’s rambling speeches and off-topic digressions, but today’s he’s a poised speaker who communicates clearly and stays on message. The political caterpillar has become a butterfly.
His message: He’s fiscally conservative and socially tolerant and believes most Americans are too. He wants a balanced budget and supports gay marriage. He would protect privacy and legalize marijuana. He would reduce spending, reframe entitlement programs, and end the wars.
“We should have gotten out of Afghanistan 11 years ago,” he said in an interview with Politico. “Romney is saying we should stay in Afghanistan until the mission is accomplished. What does that mean?”
Obama, he said, has “doubled down” on an unpopular and directionless war and might try to score political points with a strike on Iran before the November election.
