Oops....A Geographic Moment for Gary Johnson

    On Morning Joe today, Libertarian Gary Johnson made news....but not good news...When discussing Syria, he seemed to have no idea what Aleppo is....And they jumped on it....That's a city where a lot of the tragedy has played out.....
     On the day after lackluster performances  by the major party candidates in a forum last night, it's looking like America doesn't win anymore, at least with its choices for President.

Its always good for a laugh to hear eggheads like Georg Will and other illogical people, criticize a presidential candidate for having not memorized the entire globe and all the history that goes along with it up to and including the latest election of every politician in every country. Who is this past president that knew everything about every county in the world? And more importantly what has all this knowledge gained us when it came to foreign policy?

Obama is just sooooooo smart. he knew it all, or so the eggheads would have us believe. And yet he appointed the inept Clinton to her downfall. And with that appointment and her help they oversaw more destabilization of the ME, than any president before them...and that included Bush jr. and RR.

Are we going to make up our own minds about canidates or are we going to let media sway our vote... I just wonder how many millions of people couldnt answer that question..
Just watched Hillary answer obviously pre-discussed questions with some media.. We sat and watched her avoid some questionable reporters and went to ones she personally knew.

Reminds me of what Dannie's Liar in Chief campaigned in all 57 states.

no doubt it's millions upon millions. which is totally fine! it's just that none of these people should be running for president, either. you'd never hire someone as the ceo of gm who knows nothing about the automobile industry or about running a major corporation. basic knowledge relevant to the job you're seeking is a big deal.

The Americanus Boobus misses the point.

The reaction to the Johnson 'gaffe' is an illustration of American imperialism. An inevitable side-effect, like sores on a syphilitic, of the path of imperialism is the influence of foreign affairs eclipsing domestic demands.

Hence, for a presstitute, knowledge of Aleppo is of greater import than the hundreds of shootings this year in Chicago or the loss of domestic manufacturing, etc.

It bothers me a bit that Johnson doesn't know where Allepo is - after all, if you are running for President you should at least read the front page of the newspaper. I'm even more concerned that neither Clinton or Trump have any clear idea of what to do about Syria/Allepo. Looks like Russia and Turkey will run the show....

I don't know. You have to be pretty out of touch not to know what Aleppo is. It's been in the news for months. If he wants to be the leader of the free world, he should be more knowledgeable. How embarrassing, really.

I'm not in favor of Johnson's extremist left wing stances, such as open borders, legal drugs etc. But its just comical to hear you idiots criticize him for having this one insignificant pea sized hole in his knowledge of the Islamic extremist third world.

The guy is brilliant compared to Obama, Hillary, Trump, any Bush.
Only a teacher or off the map media guy would find fault with him. Read something about him and its clear he could serve better in the White house than any candidate other than Trump. And better than any candidate in the last e3lection too.
