I am usually want to point out the obvious. I have to when nobody else will.
Has it occurred to anyone else that among the 300 million plus Americans, this is the best we can come up with for President?
Let’s review. President Bush--a former governor--has an approval rating hovering in the mid to high 20s. While the U.S. Congress has the abysmal rating somewhere between 11 and 19 percent, depending upon the poll. But where do we get our presidential candidates from? You got it, the U.S. Senate. Go figure.
And to compound our stupidity, we have picked candidates, whose popularity has plummeted, while our energy, healthcare, food and inflation have skyrocketed. So tell me again why we have chosen these clowns to lead us OUT of this mess!
It’s no wonder that 80% of America refuses to go to the polls for General Elections. They already know what I have but suspected. The primaries are rigged to select candidates most malleable by special interests and lobbyists. And once ensconced in Washington, D.C., the rare neophyte idealist with the most honorable of intentions are soon swallowed up by the D.C. influence machine.
So America, you are about to get what you so justly deserve. You get to chose between a sagging veteran, who has been more an erratic, unstable, isle crossing bench warmer than any shades of a congressional maverick, and a product of corrupt, coercive, contemptible Chicago politics. No America, you cannot make this up.
Woe be to us when either takes the Oath of Office. But hey, I could be wrong….The Dumbplumber
