I don’t get political on the site too often, preferring to do my best to stick to environmental issues. But sometimes events come along that should be discussed openly, and that includes this seemingly endless race for a Republican nominee to run against President Obama this fall.
In truth, The President is probably rather thrilled with the selection the GOP has put forward, as he should have no problem beating any of them in November. If the Republican party had a reasonably intelligent candidate to run, he maybe would have had a fight on this hands. With this group, however, their insanity far outweighs their ability to win the Presidency.
While they are running for the nomination, they get the feeling that the American people are with them in their policies and statements because they are in a bubble, carefully crafted by their hardcore supporters and the news media. Once one of them gets the nomination, it’s all over – now they have to garner attention from everyone else of legal voting age in the country. And crazy, my friends, doesn’t play well with the general public. I don’t want crazy for a President, thanks; I have enough of it in my day to day life. I want someone who is way, way smarter than I am to run this joint.
In case you don’t believe me or aren’t sure of what I am talking about, here are some quotes from the leading Republican candidates running for President; how the GOP ended up with this group I will never understand.
“I respect and will protect a woman’s right to choose.” and “I never really called myself pro-choice.”
“Corporations are people, my friend… of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People’s pockets. Human beings, my friend.”
“I should tell my story. I’m also unemployed.”
“I love this state. The trees are the right height.”
“Roe v. Wade has gone too far.” and “I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it.”
