Gary Johnson Endorses George W. Bush

I found an old clip from C-SPAN. I don't know if it's widely known, but it's new to me. It's from the 2000 presidential race. Then Republican Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson, endorses -- even praises -- George W. Bush for president.

Johnson is currently running for president under the Libertarian Party banner, as he had previously in 2012. I agree with critics who complain that the LP's 2016 Johnson/Weld ticket is too pro-Establishment, too pro-mainstream GOP, too pro-Clinton.

As for the above clip, take it for what it's worth.

If endorsing George W. Bush is the litmus test, then the Libertarian Party sold out when it nominated John Hospers (who endorsed GWB in 2004).
