Johnson In Virtual Debate With Obama/Romney

Available on youtube with the following statement:

“Governor Gary Johnson has been super-imposed into the Third Presidential Debate with Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. What would America be like if we had a third choice for President? Gov. Johnson represents that choice. Protest the two party stranglehold on America and support Gov. Gary Johnson. All we need is 5% of the nationwide popular vote to change the political landscape of this country forever! Make it happen and be part of the 5% that changes America.”

    FYI Governor Johnson’s responses were recorded in Los Angeles the night before the Third Party debate in Chicago.

    As has been noted elsewhere, Governor Johnson was suffering from a flu-like illness both here, and the following night.

    Glad to see this finally come out. I was hoping we would have these for all the debates, coming out quickly. The Democracy Now! debates used this format and could have been re-cut afterwards with just the parts we wanted as well.

    So what all exactly happens for 2016 if Gary Johnson does get 5% of the popular vote this election? I know it has to do with funding and stuff, but I can’t seem to find many real details about this 5% goal. Can someone help enlighten me?

    Paulie Cannoli 5% triggers about 10 million dollars in federal funding for the LP, which goes up incrementally towards 90 million at 25%. It also clears most retention handles (not Alabama though, we would still have to petition).

    Bill Chitwood What Paulie said. Even more importantly, the Debate Commission would have ZERO legal grounds to exclude the Libertarian candidate from their debates. Of course, they’d try, but then they’d be completely exposed as the tools of the Dims and Rats that they are. Can you imagine a debate between Mittens, Teh Wun, Gary and Jill Stein? How awkward would THAT be for both Mittens and Teh Wun?

    Paulie Cannoli The debates depend on 15% in (unspecified) polls, not 5% in the election. Those polls can exclude some candidates, so a new tactic that we came up with (a bit late) in this election is polling the LP candidate one on one against the D candidate and one on one against the R candidate, giving us over 15% in several polls. Next time that needs to be done earlier.

    Paulie Cannoli Also, we need the L and G candidates debating early and often, and responding to questions put to the D and R candidates. Democracy Now! set that up this year but unfortunately Johnson chose to do his google hangout thing instead – mistake, imo

    Paulie Cannoli Help The Commission on Presidential Debates did good work in putting pressure on sponsors, venues, moderators etc this year, which will hopefully be expanded on next time

    Paulie Cannoli Rock the Debates should be brought back. In 2008 they asked D and R candidates during the primaries whether they would debate everyone on enough ballots to win and put out the videotaped answers.

    Paulie Cannoli Johnson and Stein have new legal theories the lawsuits against the CPD (there have been other lawsuits with other legal theories before) which will be pursued after the election

    Paulie Cannoli Next time, I hope our candidate joins the Greens in getting arrested outside the CPD sham debates if we are not allowed in, and publicizes it…plus, invite celebrity supporters to be there as well

    Johnson needs better audio. Next time get the mic on the lapel. He sounds like he’s talking into a webcam.

    Hopefully rapid response in this style for 2016.
