Okay so did anybody else notice that the VP for the Libertarian party now seems to be a surrogate for Hillary Clinton?

Courtesy of TPM: 

Accepting that his presidential bid will fail, Libertarian vice presidential candidate Bill Weld on Tuesday obliquely urged voters to vote for Hillary Clinton. 

In a Tuesday statement addressed to "those in the electorate who remain torn between two so-called major party candidates," the former Massachusetts governor told Republicans not to vote for the GOP nominee out of “fear for our country.” 

“After careful observation and reflection, I have come to believe that Donald Trump, if elected President of the United States, would not be able to stand up to this pressure and this criticism without becoming unhinged and unable to perform competently the duties of his office,” he said at a Boston press conference. 

Weld ticks off a long list of what he sees as Trump’s flaws, including his childish response to criticism, divisive rhetoric about immigrants and minorities, instability, and lack of familiarity with policy.

Here is a link to Weld's entire statement. 

I have little use for Gary Johnson, but I have to admit that this Bill Weld guy is pretty impressive.

In the past he has also openly shared his admiration for Hillary Clinton and has stated that she would make a fine President.

I have no idea what this means for the Libertarian ticket moving forward, but I bet that Bill Weld just made Donald Trump's list of folks he wants to sue after this election.

    Trump’s Campaign Backfires As Hillary Clinton Attracts Millions of New Voters

    Donald Trump promised that he would bring millions of new Republicans voters into the election, but polling in swing states shows that it is Hillary Clinton who is getting new voters out to support her.

    The Dream Team Of Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama Fire Democrats Up In North Carolina

    Hillary Clinton spoke first and delivered a speech that was offered glowing praise for President and First Lady Obama. Clinton’s happiness and relaxed nature have never been more obvious on the campaign trail.

    TRUMP HAS BUSINESSES IN NEW YORK AND FLORIDA BUT THOSE NFL TEAM OWNERS ARE FOR HILLARY CLINTON

    At least two more NFL owners gave to Trump: the New York Jets' Woody Johnson ($100,000), who was Jeb Bush's national finance chairman in the primaries, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Edward Glazer ($55,400). Glazer also gave $5,400 to Clinton.
    Clinton has donations from some high-profile sports names, including boxing legend Muhammad Ali (before his death), Hall of Famers Magic Johnson and Hank Aaron, ex-New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, tennis legend Billie Jean King and Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin

    These 58 sports figures donated money to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump see link beliw

    I don't think this will gain Hillary many votes.

    I don't think the Libertarians take direction from anyone. I also think that any supporters they gained this year were mostly anti-Trump voters who would never vote for Hillary. Johnson and Weld were their third party protest votes. They'll probably still vote for them. Or if they are offended over this endorsement, they just won't vote at all.

    Republicans’ Worst Nightmare Isn’t What They Think It Is

    Donald Trump might refuse to concede defeat. But he could do something much worse to the GOP.

    ...Trump’s antics are forcing Republicans to confront a nightmare scenario in which they underperform the polls, which are already ominous for down-ballot GOP candidates. But the truly horrifying scenario for them is one they probably haven’t thought of yet, and it isn’t that Trump refuses to concede when Clinton defeats him.

    I was always going to vote for Hillary but I actually did like the Libertarian duo this time around and was so bummed by the Aleppo moment and when Chris Matthews stumped them with a question about admired foreign leaders. I'd heard Weld say good things about hill before and am glad to once again.

    Last night on Lawrence O'Donnell there was a segment that touched on the fact that Trump's new hotel has had to slash its prices. Dana Milbank has been keeping up with all the developments. Here's his latest:

    2. AND MELANIA TRUMP SAID:

    "They were lies, and as I said before, all the accusations, they should be handled in a court of law." She explained that she wants the lawsuits against the female accusers to move forward. "I believe that, because to accuse somebody without evidence it's very hurtful and it's very damaging and unfair

      My guess is he wants to avoid a deposition about this subject.

      The parties, the cocaine, the underage drinking, the underage girls, EVERYTHING.

      Can you imagine what would happen if the victims were deposed under oath and asked about his "man parts"? That can be acceptable in a rape trial, if for no other reason than to identify that it was Trump and he really did expose himself. I mean, how would the girls be able to describe in detail....if he didn't....."

      His lawyers duct taped him to a chair and and circled him, screaming "YOU DUMB FUCK, SHUT THE FUCK UP!"

      But I expect in a few days, weeks, he'll be back on the sue them track.

  19. Bill Weld is indeed an impressive man. He is one of the most extraordinary persons to hold elected office in my lifetime. He is (like our current President, John Kerry, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan) that rare politician who possess not only practical intelligence but also that amorphous thing we call intellect. The man reads books. GOOD books, not best seller list garbage. And (best of all) for pleasure!

    When Weld ran against Kerry for Senate twenty years ago they held a series of debates throughout the Commonwealth. These forums are all uploaded to YouTube, and I would invite anyone here to watch them, because they are truly edifying stuff: two erudite men discoursing an a high plane, an incredibly rare thing in today's debased political culture. Most debates we see nowadays are trite and sound bite driven, full of platitudes and disingenuous nonsense. Weld and Kerry put on a seminar that is probably as close to Lincoln and Douglas that we will ever get in the present age.

    Having Weld in her corner is a big deal for Hillary. It will probably increase her margins in Connecticut, Maine and New Hampshire. His reputation in the Northeast, even among progressives, is excellent. He was for marriage equality and legal marijuana even before Howard Dean took these positions, and he also has an outstanding record on ecological issues. In his first gubernatorial election, he proudly championed a liberal line on social issues against a culturally conservative Catholic Democrat, the late John Silver, philosopher and Chancellor of Boston University.

    I hope HRC nominated him to be Ambassador to Mexico and rights the injustice done to him by Jesse Helms back in the late nineties.
