Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI) has officially reneged on his plan to run for the presidency on a Libertarian Party (LP) ticket, declaring that he would not seek to be on their presidential ticket.
He made the announcement today via a long thread on Twitter in which he attempted to rationalize decision to his deluded followers:
Thanks for your support as I’ve been exploring a run for president as the potential nominee of the Libertarian Party.

“I’ve spent nearly three weeks assessing the race, appearing in media, talking to delegates and donors, watching the Libertarian Party’s convention plan unfold, and gathering feedback from family, friends, and other advisers,” Amash wrote in a subsequent tweet.
“After much reflection, I’ve concluded that circumstances don’t lend themselves to my success as a candidate for president this year, and therefore I will not be a candidate,” he added.
It is likely that Amash realized that he would pull no voters away from Trump after spending years of pandering to the Left and alienating his former supporters on the Right. He made a bunch of excuses for cowering out of the race on Twitter.
“The new reality of social distancing levels the playing field among the candidates in many respects, but it also means lesser known candidates are more dependent on adequate media opportunities to reach people,” he wrote in a Tweet.
“Today, most Americans are understandably more interested in what life will look like tomorrow than they are in broader policy debates, and news coverage has reflected those priorities. At the same time, fundraising challenges posed by an idled economy will hinder advertising,” Amash added.
Even though Amash has effectively screwed the Libertarians, he continues to pay lip service to their fledgling party, which has virtually zero accomplishments in nearly five decades of existence.
“The Libertarian Party’s national committee members and delegates have worked diligently to organize the national convention, but lingering uncertainty regarding ratification of online voting, the feasibility of 50-state ballot access and related legal challenges, and unity after the nomination have also weighed heavily on me. We must address these issues as a party to ensure we maximize our potential,” he wrote.
“If you aren’t already a member of the [national LP], I encourage you to join me in becoming one so we can continue working together toward freedom, peace, and prosperity,” Amash tweeted to conclude his monologue.
Amash has gone from a rising star in the Republican Party to a national laughingstock due to his terminal case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. The LP is where this loser belongs.
Really? Joe Biden Appears to Forget the Words to the Pledge of Allegiance
A new low?
Joe Biden appeared to forget the words to the Pledge of Allegiance during a campaign speech in Wisconsin on Tuesday.

“I pledge allegiance to the United States of America, one nation, indivisible, under God, for real.”
The real pledge, which most fifth graders who don’t attend left-wing public schools can recite, reads as follows.
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Biden’s improvised version doesn’t even bear resemblance to the actual Pledge of Allegiance.
Biden’s campaign team may have assumed that the Democrat elder wouldn’t need the promptings of a teleprompter in order to correctly repeat the Pledge of Allegiance, but they overestimated his memory.
The first presidential debate is scheduled for next Tuesday, and Biden’s handlers may be panicking as the Democrat candidate appears slipping into his previous routine of questionable and troubling mental gaffes. If he were to win in November, he’d be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day by far.
