Well Warren Buffet is not exactly a fan of Trump, overall not getting these endorsments is a good thing not a bad thing in principle. In case of Johnson it's more of manifestation of never trump than gary johnson is so awesome imo.

Next time read first, then comment.

 

"Our final decision to endorse the Johnson/Weld ticket, and to do so with great confidence and enthusiasm, came only after Johnson met with the editorial board last Monday morning. We found him to be knowledgeable but unscripted, reasonable and good-humored, self-assured but free from arrogance, willing and able to address every question, consistent in his beliefs without being dogmatic, even-tempered, curious — and in all respects optimistically, realistically presidential.

We have over the years interviewed hundreds of politicians — local, state, and national — and there’s no doubt that Johnson belongs in the major leagues, and on the debate stage this fall. He is a skilled and experienced leader, an able communicator, an intelligent man."

Yes, im pretty sure it was 100% policy subtance and character based. After all they endorsed George Bush not once but twice. I'm more than sure they would still endorse Johnson over Rubio or Cruz because of that meeting that went so well.

The response to the rest of the speech was tepid at best.
They were probably just cheering because he didn't say, "I'd like to conclude with a passage from One John, Chapter Four."

Well, if you knew the Richmond Times, they have moved in a more libertarian direction in the last 8 years. They had positive things to say about Rand Paul during the primaries.

Maybe they would have endorsed Rubio or Cruz, but it isn't the slam dunk you believe.

Yes but they're still getting over that whole "Jefferson Davis thing".

Seems like the most apropos thread to place this. The UK will pay for a wall built in France to keep illegals out.

1km is a long distance, and I'm sure it will stop determined people living in a "jungle"

Trump could suggest we just nuke Syria and be done with the place and his polling wouldn't be affected at all.  Or, if it were, it would bounce back in a week.
