Earlier tonight Matt Drudge (http://www.drudgereport.com) posted a link to an article authored by Wayne Allyn Root in what Mike Riggs, an associate editor at Reason magazine, in a critique titled “Wayne Allyn Root Is Why the Libertarian Party Can’t Have Nice Things” describes as:
This awful, weird, conspiratorial column . . . will probably be the most widely read thing Root has ever written.
In the article Wayne Allyn Root (credited as, “a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee and the author of “The Conscience of a Libertarian.” He now serves as Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee. He is a regular guest on Fox News and hundreds of radio shows across America. He is also a gun-slinging, riverboat gambling, entrepreneur and capitalist evangelist. His web site: www.ROOTforAmerica.com“) offers the following advice to Governor Mitt Romney and makes a related (“gut-based”) prediction:
Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. . . . Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago, that you are afraid to let America’s voters see it? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.”. . . Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.
Mike Riggs concludes his review of the article with the following:
. . . the fact that Root writes about Romney as if Gary Johnson did not exist is awful. What’s worse is that articles like Root’s repel the kind of people Johnson needs in November. . .
