[su_dropcap style=”flat”]I[/su_dropcap] FIND THE CHOICES of Presidential material being offered to us this year very bleak.
Many of the early republican candidates, and there were many, were about as qualified to be president as I am. Of the remain three we have this to pick from:
Trump: While most of us agree with his points, we don’t like his bombastic attitude. He seems to suffer from a serious case of hoof in mouth decease. I agree we need better control of our boarders, and we need to get the illegals out of the country, anchor babies included. I also agree that a woman and doctor that participates in an “illegal” abortion should be prosecuted. (Anyone doing something illegal should be prosecuted.) Trump seems to have trouble picking his fights. He gets aggressive with anyone that slights or attacks him and there will be many if he is president.
Cruz: He strikes me as another “slick willy” politician. Someone needs to tell him to stop with that half baked smirk after every comment he makes.
Kusich: Probably a nice enough guy, but I am not sure a nice guy is going to get much done in D.C. (Think Carter.) The power structure there, not to mention the other world leaders, will have him for lunch. He strikes me as being either a dark horse hopeful, or a power broker. Like, Rubio, he hopes to trade his delegates for the best deal he can get from either Cruz or Trump when the chips are down.
Then we have the two democratic candidates.
Clinton: In theory she should have the best credentials for dealing with international issues, having been secretary of state ( probably a deal struck with Obama and Soros for her backing out of the race in 2012). But, I didn’t see her do anything of note while she had that position except the Bengali bungling and the questionable judgement about her private email server. Then there is the foreign support for both her candidacy and the supposed “charity fund” in Canada. The millions being funneled through that goes to enrich she, Bill, and their daughter along with some select friends. Little goes to any charitable activity. Frankly I don’t find her the lease bit trustworthy.
Sanders: Are we really contemplating electing a self avowed socialist to head our republic? What gives me more concern than that, scary as it is, is that the next generation (18-35 age) is so supportive of the idea of our country becoming more socialistic than it already is.
So there we have it folks. It seems really odd that we can’t find a single good candidate to be president out of all the people in this country. Why is that? Do they simply not exist or are the best qualified not willing to go through the meat grinder process of being elected? Very bleak indeed.
