American Presidential Candidates

As regular readers know I am greatly disappointed that Sarah Palin won't run for the office of President as a candidate for the Republicans. I was even more disappointed when I saw a candidate who couldn't answer directly about the situation in Libya. His name is Herman Cain, and you can read about his stuttering reply here: http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2011/11/14/herman-cain-double-clutches-answers-question-about-president-handling-libya/TvyZC74u7449dNcBBOsl9H/story.html.

Truly shocking!

How can ANYONE even think about running for the office of President without even the smallest knowledge of the world around us?

How can ANYONE even dream of thinking this is just a game?

It is often said we have the politicians we deserve, and that seems very true. If anyone votes for such an ignorant person then truly there is a democratic problem. Our world needs strong and wise leaders who can GUIDE us in a positive direction, but it requires, at minimum, a clear understanding of what is involved.

Have a nice weekend everyone. :-)
