Gary Johnson Excluded From NH Debate

CNN, WMUR, and the New Hampshire Union Leader will host a presidential debate on Monday, June 13th in Manchester. Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, and Ron Paul will participate. In addition, unannounced candidates Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum will also take part.

Gary Johnson, however, will not participate. Why? Because he wasn’t invited.

This morning, we learned along with the rest of world that CNN and the other debate sponsors have decided to exclude Governor Johnson from sharing your voice in the debate.


And the guy is at the same level as those two shills Santorum and Pawlenty.

In the latest Gallup poll, released one week ago, Governor Johnson’s level of support registered at 3% nationally. This is competitive with candidates like Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum, both of whom have been invited to participate.

Yeah free elections MY BUTT.

Yeah, why not just add him in? How hard would it be? These things are all shams and sound bite parties anyway, so who cares? At least it would give more semblance to the affair being more inclusive...

For me, I have to say I can't watch these anymore. They are too painful on both sides. The issues are not those I want discussed, nor have they ever been (broadly).

Do you recall the big Prez debate between Gore and Bush way back. Ralph Nader was running on the Green Party. It was at the time the third party choice.

Not only was Nader not allowed into the debate. But he was not even allowed into the free kin house. Even though he was there legally with a ticked for the event, he was escorted by police to another location.

Now , that was blatant.

Johnson was semi pro-MRM. He said something along the lines that "the family court system is in need of major reform".

Gingrich only made overtures to the MRM when he was on his last leg and they where very hallow ones at that.
Romney is a big traditionalist matriarchy supporter. So is Santorum and Bachmann, Ron Paul is a coward on this issue, but a Ron Paul presidency would be beneficial.

Basically Johnson is being kept out because he is semi pro-MRM. That goes against what right wing women want(as many realize they F'ed up big time enabling leftist women to hurt men and boy's and want a "soft landing" they won't get either way).

CNN= C&^t News Network that is very much anti male and is pro female supremacy.

So it is of no surprise.
-
For the record if Romney, Santorum or Gingrich win I intend to leave the Republican party permanently, nervous and uncertain about Backmann(don't get me wrong she is a traditionalist, but maybe not as extreme as the three above) and the others I know too little about to form an opinion.

Herman Cain: Nervous(seems lax about gun control on a local level, also a traditionalist), but not enough info to form an opinion on.
