Who is Barack Obama’s best friend in this election? It is not the drive-by media who are doing their best to help his reelection campaign. There is someone who could really damage Mitt Romney’s campaign and directly cause Barack Obama to win the election this fall.
Who is Obama’s best friend?
It is Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party.
Johnson and the Libertarians are reveling in the idea that they could be the decider in the election. Much as either Ross Perot or even Ralph Nader pulled votes away and decided an election, Johnson and his cast of fools are about to do the same.
From Fox News:
Johnson, the former New Mexico governor who briefly and unsuccessfully competed for the Republican presidential nomination before joining the Libertarians, is polling barely above 5 percent nationwide. Yet his numbers in key battleground states suggest he could make a difference in what is shaping up to be a tight contest between President Obama and Mitt Romney.
He was rating at 13 percent in New Mexico and 9 percent in Arizona in recent polling -- not enough to win, but certainly enough to disadvantage whichever major-party candidate he's drawing votes away from.
The Libertarian Party is now touting that possibility. An emailed statement from the organization earlier this week carried a rather sensational subject line: "Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gov. Gary Johnson Could Deprive Mitt Romney of 5 battleground states, 74 Electoral Votes, 27% of the Electoral Votes needed to win in 2012."
Libertarians reasoned Johnson, then, "could determine the winner" of the election.
It's impossible to gauge at this point what effect Johnson could have, but of course it's not unprecedented for a third-party candidate to tilt the scales.
If Barack Obama wins this fall, we can all thank the Libertarians for it. Gary Johnson has no chance to win yet every vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Barack Obama. Gary Johnson is an open borders, let’s have amnesty, let’s legalize drugs nut job.
He wants to end enhanced interrogation techniques, which have saved lives. He wants to allow terrorists to tie up proceedings in Federal Courts and allow liberal Federal Judges to order the release of terrorists, regardless of whether they are a threat to America or might return have high value information.
Unfortunately he has a following. The most important thing we can do in 2012 is to replace Barack Obama.
Mitt Romney is not perfect. I anticipate there will be huge fights with a Romney administration in 2013 and beyond. But Romney can defeat Obama and Romney is not an anti-American Marxist. Gary Johnson cannot defeat Barack Obama. All he can do is hand the election to Obama by siphoning off votes that would otherwise go to Romney.
If Obama is reelected in November, he should give a special word of thanks to the one man who may have made it possible. Gary Johnson.
Maybe the liberals made Johnson an offer he can''t refuse.
Obama's Wife and Children, soon he will see that when he is voted out no one will be there but his family.
"We have met the enemy..... And it is us!'.....Pogo
Everyone is fed up with the two party system. Look back at 1992 and 1996, those two elections gave us Bill Clinton. Until the country fills Congress with Libertarians, there will never be an electable Libertarian candidate for President. A vote for anyone other than Romney will re-elect Obama.
Not feeling enthusiastic about Romney? Repeat after me: “Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder.”
No, He meant Supreme court justice Eric Holder!! How about Supreme court justice Nancy Legosi.
He means Obama will nominate Holder to the Supreme Court if Obama is reelected. Not something we would want to have happen, believe me.
Well, if that MUSLIM b _ _ _ _ _ d DOES " appoint " Holder to the Supreme Court, then Holder would STILL have to be confirmed by the SENATE, . . . . and, ( fingers crossed, . . . . ), the Senate, by that time, will be controlled by the " Grand Ol ' Party," the REPUBLICAN Party !
this guy sounds like Obama when it comes to terrorists.
He really sounds to me like someone who's done weed for a long, long time.
All TPN Members,
As Judson says, "Romney is not Perfect". Judson has also stated before something to the effect that at least 1/3rd of Tea Party Members will not cast a vote for Romney or Obama on November 6, 2012. This is because Faith Based and Constitutional conservatives will refuse to violate their conscience.
Armed with this knowledge we can stop Obama from a second term and Johnson's efforts to re-elect him. We can do this by nominating the right candidate president. We can due this by nominating a candidate that is the most Faith Based and Constitutional conservative that many of us have seen in our life time. Sarah Palin has stated many times over that she would be willing to accept a nomination to be president if it is what the People desire. If we want a restoration of American and an end to business as usual then we say we take Sarah Palin up on her words.
Here is a chance to get in on "how we can get off the side of the cliff" that the Republicans along with the Democrats have placed us on. Join in the nation wide effort to nominate and elect the Constitutional and Faith Based Conservative Sarah Palin. As many of you know there is still time to remove Romney from becoming the nominee.
As all of you should know by now through the many post by TPN and other conservative sites along with your personal research, Romney is not a Constitutional or a Faith Based Conservative. Romney's record as Governor of Massachusetts makes this very clear.
Below you will find a recent article written on our efforts in the Cedar Rapids. If we want real reform in Washington and a Reformer we can trust, we must elect an individual with a record of successful reform. Sarah Palin has that record.

Our movement to get Sarah Palin nominated at the RNC Convention. We've got Billboards up in 4 States, Texas, Florida, Iowa and Wisconsin and have sent out informational packages to all of the Delegates. Here is an article written in Cedar Rapids about our efforts.http://www.kcrg.com/news/local/Group-Buys-Billboard-Space-for-Palin...You can read our Delegate packet pdf athttp://palinquakes.com/take_a_stand_-_our_time_our_country_our_choi...
So, David, you are willing to dump your country down the drain because Romney doesn't fit your definition of the "perfect" candidate.
The first rule of politics: The need for Perfection leads to defeat.
The second rule of politics: Voting is a secret majority game, not a public revelation game.
The third rule of politics: Power to get things done in Congress rests with Parties, not people.
The fourth rule of politics: Never vote for a candidate who can't win.
All roads lead to Romney.
Bless your heart John,
Spoken like a true RINO. I pray you are not a Troll, just ill advised.
First rule of politics is: There is no perfect candidate; we are all flawed by nature. It is why we must always choose are representatives wisely; from a best of the best perspective, not the lesser of two evils or in this presumptive case of one liberal (Romney) over another liberal (Obama) if in fact we allow this to be our choice while there is still time to ensure that it is not.
Second rule of politics is: Corrupt politicians exist because The People fail to be responsible parents so to speak. It is in one's nature to trust our fellow men and women; hence, their down fall. But, then it doesn't help matters when there are those in public positions of notoriety and responsibility of supervision and education that are failing to inform The People of the political deviance by their political representatives such as this "voting is a secret majority" as you say.
Third rule of politics is: the power to get things done rest with The People, not the parties. This is a lissen that should have been well learned over the past four years. Remember the Tea Parties, the election of 2010 and the fights going onto day because of The People? Guess not.
Forth rule of politics is: every candidate has a chance to win as long as their opponent doesn't cheat, as long as they have the right message and have the record of trustworthiness, and for as long as their are not masses of mindless fools who believe the lie, "That person can't win". Sarah Palin heard that lie many times in Alaska and many times the lie was proven a lie. You are not a mindless fool of the masses are you John? I pray not.
Not all roads to lead to "business as usual". Occasionally, a road leads to smaller government, a responsible government, a limited government, and a government of the people, by the people, for the people. But first you must be willing to elect individuals with a Servant's Heart.
