Wayne Allyn Root Is Why the Libertarian Party Can't Have Nice Things

Former Libertarian Party vice presidential candidate and current Libertarian National Campaign Committee Chair Wayne Allyn Root is why libertarians can't have nice things. Case in point: Root's latest column at Glenn Beck's The Blaze.

Let me sum it up for you: Mitt Romney should offer to release more tax returns only if Obama will release his college transcripts. This will take the pressure off Romney, and put the scrutiny back on Obama, except that Obama will never release his transcripts because he pretended to be from another country to get loans and then seldom went to classes at Columbia and got poor grades. Wayne Allyn Root knows all this because he also graduated from Columbia in 1983 and doesn't remember seeing any black people "Barry Soetoro."

This awful, weird, conspiratorial column, just linked by Matt Drudge, will probably be the most widely read thing Root has ever written. Its existence is a tragedy for Libertarians and libertarians.

Root's bio identifies him as "a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee" and "Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee" and the author of a book titled "The Conscience of a Libertarian." You know what that means? It means Wayne Allyn Root is an ambassador for libertarianism, and that his columns are a direct reflection on the Libertarian Party, which has several times elected him to prominent positions despite the fact that he is a glistening PR disaster.

Then again, nowhere in his piece for The Blaze does Root mention a single Libertarian candidate for office. This is probably a good thing, but also odd, because it's campaign season, and the job of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee is to run Libertarian Party candidates at the local, state, and congressional levels. Mitt Romney is not a candidate for local, state, or congressional office, and he is not a Libertarian (or even a libertarian).

So why is Wayne Allyn Root giving Romney free campaign advice, when he should be talking to, and about, Libertarian Party candidates? Are the heads of Democratic and Republican organizations writing insane memos telling Gary Johnson how to beat Obama, the bad-grade-getter? Are they telling down-ticket Libertarian Party candidates how to deflect questions about their finances?

NOPE.

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.

As for anyone who's still upset about The Weekly Standard's description of this year's LP convention as a "goat rodeo": Why don't you direct your rage at the clown running the Libertarian National Campaign Committee?

But my inquiry was more important. And you haven't reassured me that you DO see something wrong with the government going out of its way to get people on food stamps who don't want them and finding ways to succeed in making them dependent on government.
So, again, tell me you do see something very wrong here.
I asked first, you claim there are sitting GOP congresspersons wanting to let Obamacare run its course.

Another lie?

PS: the Dept. of Agriculture has been pushing food stamps since their inception, why weren't you incensed about this before the colored fella got into the White House?

UN Office for Disarmament Affairs – They think to Include, We the People...

August 14, 2013

Given that their NWO plant and Our "enemy within" -Illegal 'President' Barack Hussein Obama, has been buying up all ammunition and tried to ban guns under the pretense of making the streets safer when it is the criminals with the guns that this would have no impact upon, this constant effort to eliminate guns from the public seems to be a very high agenda. We can only ask why? Clearly, agreeing to UN sanctions sidesteps Our Constitution, Congress and the American People. Using UN foreign troops on American soil is another very dangerous agenda for those foreign troops who aren't hiding underground with their cowardly global puppet masters...

A former ombudsman for The Washington Post offered some unsolicited advice Wednesday to the paper's new owner Jeff Bezos, urging the Amazon.com founder to can conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin.
Writing in The Washington City Paper, Patrick B. Pexton, who served as ombudsman for the Post from 2011 until March 2013, dispensed some general tips, too, telling Bezos to "grow a thick skin" and to get to know the newspaper's audience. But perhaps his most pointed suggestion came when he addressed Rubin, the author of the Post's "Right Turn" blog who was perhaps Mitt Romney's biggest cheerleader in the press throughout last year's campaign.
Rubin, Pexton wrote, was "the No. 1 source of complaint mail about any single Post staffer" while he served as ombudsman. Bezos should instruct Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor at the Post, to fire Rubin, Pexton wrote.
Not because she’s conservative, but because she’s just plain bad. She doesn’t travel within a hundred miles of Post standards. She parrots and peddles every silly right-wing theory to come down the pike in transparent attempts to get Web hits," Pexton wrote. "Her analysis of the conservative movement, which is a worthwhile and important beat that the Post should treat more seriously on its national pages, is shallow and predictable. Her columns, at best, are political pornography; they get a quick but sure rise out of the right, but you feel bad afterward.
And she is often wrong, and rarely acknowledges it. She was oh-so-wrong about Mitt Romney, week after week writing embarrassing flattery about his 2012 campaign, calling almost every move he made brilliant, and guaranteeing that he would trounce Barack Obama. When he lost, the next day she savaged him and his campaign with treachery, saying he was the worst candidate with the worst staff, ever. She was wrong about the Norway shootings being acts of al-Qaida. She was wrong about Chuck Hagel being an anti-Semite. And does she apologize? Nope.
Rubin was the No. 1 source of complaint mail about any single Post staffer while I was ombudsman, and I’m leaving out the organized email campaigns against her by leftie groups like Media Matters. Thinking conservatives didn’t like her, thinking moderates didn’t like her, government workers who knew her arguments to be unfair didn’t like her. Dump her like a dull tome on the Amazon Bargain Books page.

The leftwing fools think Jeff Bezos will operate the Washington Post at a loss to support liberal causes. If so, they don't understand the technology world, where losers get no respect.

Yup, Root's a boob. That he's pimping for Romney pretty much destroys any libertarian cred he never had.

But hey, y'all have had plenty of your own in your respective parties.

The economy is PRECISELY what I'm referring to. The same way they tried to make Benghazi and the IRS an issue, but turned it into quicksand even faster.

If they head down the birther path, they won't be getting anywhere since Obama won't be running again. All they'll create is an irritating high pitched whine.

I suspect all the bruhaha they're creating is because they have no viable candidate to offer.

The thing is they should really worry about 2014 first.
