The Politics of Politics

Recently there has been criticism of the mainstream news media by the conservative talking heads that Obama has been crowned King.  And that he doesn’t have the credentials to be the C.E.O. of the U.S.A.

Quite frankly, there are very few, if anyone that is completely qualified.  We go through the primary process and the candidates kiss babies and each others backsides until we have two candidates to select from, one from each major party.

For all the conservatives, Was Reagan qualified?

For all the liberals, was Clinton (Bill), qualified?

No, to both, if you look at their background and experience.

I saw Collin Powell when he was in Fort Wayne recently.  He probably is better qualified than any of the major or minor candidates running for President.

No, it really is Politics as usual, and no matter who wins, we will survive.  This country is bigger and stronger and has more heart and soul than is limited to the C.E.O. of the U.S.A.

So cheer up, make sure you are registered and prepare to vote in a few months.
