Most Important Job In The World: Hire A “Rookie” With No Experience, Or A “Veteran” With Lots Of Experience? A “No Brainer”!

The American Presidency is the most important, most crucial job in the world!

Should we hire a “rookie” with no experience at all in government to be our leader; or should we hire a “veteran” who has many years of experience, knowledge, and expertise and is well respected by both friends and adversaries?

This is a “no brainer”, particulary when one examines the Hillary Clinton record as First Lady, US Senator, and Secretary of State, making her one of the most qualified on background of any Presidential nominee in all of American history!

Hillary Clinton has great talents, great intellect, and is well respected even by Republicans who are fighting against her, as they know her ability to work “across the aisle” with the opposition when possible.

Clinton was able to work with former House Majority Whip Tom DeLay of Texas, Senator Lindsey Graham of North Carolina, and Senator John McCain of Arizona among others.

She does not just spout for attention, but rather also listens to others, and knows how to accommplish major goals.

So any intelligent person, while understanding the shortcomings of any public figure, would come to the conclusion that Democrat Hillary Clinton, our first woman nominee for President, is highly qualified to be President, and Donald Trump is totally unqualified, as he is not even a good businessman, but rather a con man who has failed at business, diplomacy, and in his private life!

Massive Split in Conservative Community And Republican Congressional Members Over Newt Gingrich Presidential Candidacy!

Conservative commentators and talk show hosts are bitterly divided over the Presidential candidacy of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

Among those supportive of him are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Bill O’Reilly.

A much longer list against him include Michael Savage, Ann Coulter, Peggy Noonan, George Will, David Brooks, Glenn Beck, Charles Krauthammer, and the prestigious conservative periodical, The National Review.

Who would have thought there would be such a bitter split among conservatives, along with so much venom against Gingrich by his own Congressional colleagues, including Susan Molinari, Peter King, Tom Coburn, Dan Quayle, Dick Armey, and Tom DeLay?

It is clear that the Republican Party and the conservative community are deeply split, and this can only help Barack Obama!

It is also clear that were Newt Gingrich by some miracle to become the nominee, the party would be badly split, similar to 1964, which could mean a major progressive step forward in Congress, as well as a massive victory for Barack Obama, even in bad economic times!

Tom “The Hammer” DeLay Is Back: Please Go Back Into Obscurity! :(

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay of Texas, forced out of office, and facing a federal trial on corruption charges in the future, was back in the spotlight on CNN State of The Union with Candy Crowley this morning, and after his appearance, the best advice one could give him is GO AWAY! 🙁

Already controversial for promoting the “Birther” movement which has questioned the birthplace of Barack Obama, DeLay now has the gall to defend those senators, including Jon Kyl of Arizona, who claim that unemployment compensation promotes laziness and lack of interest in seeking work! 🙁

DeLay expands this idea of Kyl to say that everyone knows that most people on unemployment compensation like being unemployed, and will only look for work a few weeks before it runs out! So in other words, the fact that unemployment compensation only covers up to half of a worker’s salary up to a certain level, is motivating to have people sit around and enjoy their unemployment period! 🙁

What an insult this is to the millions on unemployment compensation, many who are desperate to feed their families, pay their rent or mortgage, and have no health care in most cases while unemployed! 🙁

I hope the Republican party continues to promote this hard hearted, Social Darwinism concept of those who are unemployed and poor. In the midst of the Great Recession, the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression, primarily caused by Republican Congresses and the Bush Administration through their advocacy of massive tax cuts for the rich and deregulation of business corporations, they have the nerve to advocate such views! 🙁

This kind of mentality will, if there is any common sense left in this country, lead to the GOP NOT gaining massive numbers of new seats in Congress, as they have the cocky belief is about to happen! 🙁
