“GARY JOHNSON: Excuses and blame don’t create jobs – except for speech writers” Examiner 06/14/12

“We are in deep, deep trouble economically, and virtually every American is paying the price. Yet we have a president making excuses and promising that things will get better if we just let him have four more years to keep going down a failed path. And we have a Republican candidate promising to do better, but without offering anything dramatically different from the same policies that have gotten us into this mess.

“Enough with the excuses and blame. Neither creates jobs — except for speechwriters. We must eliminate deficit spending now, not someday off in the future when it won’t hurt so much.”

    Generally positive appearances. Still some work to do getting to the center, but I sense a lot of progress has been made.

    Lose the mention of Gary E. Johnson. No need to speculate like that, especially about a tricky maneuver like that….

    @2 hehe Richie I think she liked Gary’s straightforward approach and willingness to laugh a bit at the process (especially the rapid fire question segment).

    I was at that taping and the sad thing is that they cut out most of the great substantive policy questions from the interview. Leigh Ann asked very few horse race questions and focused on policy.

    Everyone was happy to have gotten the interview going because we had been stalled for almost an hour waiting for the President’s press conference to finish.

    How does this election’s coverage of third parties compare to the coverage third parties got 4 years ago?

  4. Robert Capozzi

    6 nk, a month out of convention, it seems like GJ’s getting similar to slightly more media compared with BB. Team GJ is much further along in terms of promotions, e.g., youtubes.

    Not much different. Media interviews and coverage is more prevalent by lesser known media outlets, but the mainstream news there is a lot less. For example, for the CBS interview I doubt was on actual TV.

    There is still a lot more coverage in general for Gary Johnson then Bob Barr and third parties in general, but for the other candidates the coverage is sparse. I wanted to post some new news for Jill Stein and Virgil Goode, but nope, it’s been a week for ANYTHING new from ANYONE…at least from what I could find.

    There was an article of Gary Johnson on Yahoo News last Thursday or Friday.
