Given the serious issues facing this country, not the least of which is an explosion in debt being proposed by Obama, our dim-witted Congress, led by consummate petty politicians, is busy rearanging the Senate’s chamber chairs as it figures out how to seat or unseat Roland Burris from Illinois. WHO CARES? I will say it again: “Who cares?” We can’t do any worse than the current crop of inexperienced, spineless worms leading Congress… that is Reid and Pelosi. I am serious when I say; the caliber of our leadership lacks the depth of “real-world” experience of any kind to develop serious and comprehensive solutions to our overwhelming combination of societal and economic problems. And I fear that as the educational level of our citizenry continues to nose-dive, the future caliber of Congress will only decline. And if you are not frightened by the prospect of future Congress’ possessing even less vision and less leadership skill, you are deaf, dumb and most likely blind. And while I still possess all my 5 senses, I already feel the gravitational pull of Congress gearing up to deny my god given rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.
I have been on this earth almost 50 years. I have lived through the Kennedy, Johnson, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton and Bush II presidencies and for the first time in all those years I have no respect for our process of electing our leaders. In nearly 50 years of my life, I don’t believe there has been a less impressive presidential candidate or president than Obama. He has accomplished very little compared to my past Presidents or presidential candidates, and he has not accomplished significantly more than myself when all things are considered.
“How in the world did we get to this point?” To attempt to understand, I asked a close Liberal friend, who I respect highly, why anyone would seriously consider Obama. She said: “Let’s give some new blood a chance”. Regrettably I think far far too many people are thinking like my friend. That scares me as Obama is not an impressive character except to say… he seems to be growing into the portrait the media has painted for him. So again I ask: “What are we thinking!” Just as a GED is not equivalent in “real terms” to a high school graduation… community organizing, a few years in the Senate and a law degree does not prepare one to be the President. There is no substitute for certain life experiences and the wisdom of age. Obama simply does not have what it takes TODAY… to be President. I really wished he had waited another 4 years… he just is too weak.
