Johnson is actually the LIbertarian Party candidate now. Check out his website homepage which has his face on Mount Rushmore. I guess you have to be a bit of a loon to want to be President, but... wow

I have no thoughts about the campaign. For all those who criticize the president and the candidates please remember that it is very hard to be president and not many people in the world could do much better. I am not a big fan of Obama, but honestly could you do better?

Obama cheerleaders are funny. Havent all his broken promises and outright failures gotten to you yet? Anyway, as for the Republican candidates, id disagree that they are 'atrocious'. Huntsman is very good on foreign policy but not so experienced with handling domestic or local issues. Cain is knowledgable on handling business/economics and understands the real life impact of government, but is lacking in foreign policy areas and is not very well-spoken. Santorum is fairly smart on most issues and is consistent and trustworthy, but as an outspoken Catholic he turns non-religious people off, not trying to be cautious with his words and failing to seem diplomatic. Perry is reasonable and competent with handling issues as they come, good as a governor but lacking that 'something' that makes a good president. Johnson, Pawlenty, and Bachmann are irrelevant in this race, each failing to stand out. Paul has very good judgement in domestic issues, mostly sticking to the belief that people should have as much individua

l freedom and responsibility as possible, with as little government intervention as possible, which is wise, but his somewhat isolationist views can be a little bit naive. Gingrich is fairly intelligent and knowledgable on almost every issue and knows how to work the system, being experienced in government, but isnt very attractive or inspiring as a leader-figure. Romney, probably the nominee, is the most balanced of all. He doesnt seem to have any significant flaws, but also doesnt have any significant advantages as far as i can see. He is smart, personable, diplomatic and cautious, but also seems to change his mind often and lack conrete values to stand for. Hopefully this is just a sign of flexibility and open-mindedness, so he can learn from the proposals and ideas as well as the mistakes of the others.

@THobbes , this is trivia about political figures, which my comments directly referred to. ___ @Rothdeman , do you really want to argue semantics? Basically the idea is to mind your own business, sit at home, and not bother to influence major events around the world. If you think that policy naive, you call it 'isolationism'; if you like it you call it 'non-interventionism.' That is the only real difference.

Almost certainly the sorriest lot of presidential contenders in my lifetime. It's embarrassing that this pool is the best the GOP had to offer.

If this is how much political mudslinging the 2012 candidates quiz has, I don't even WANT to know that 2016 is going to look like.
