College kids cannot find work, laid off workers cannot get rehired, China and the Far East are becoming larger and larger economic competitors, we are still dependent on foreign oil which tortures our foreign policy. Why don’t they care? Why don’t they have any ideas? Why do they advocate the exact same policies that produced the economic malaise? Why don’t they deal in reality? Is there some IQ test to run for the Republican nomination that eliminates all people who score over room temperature? What happened to the Grown-ups in the GOP?
Every instance when a potential candidate has shown some moderation the far right attacks and the candidate retreats faster than a speeding bullet. Rick Perry felt it was unfair to children of illegal immigrants to be charged out of state tuition at Texas schools. He reasoned it was not their fault and getting a good education would ultimate make them better citizens, yet he couldn’t backtrack fast enough when the wacko’s attacked him. Mitt Romney worked out a health care plan that benefited the citizens of his state when he was governor but has gone to great lengths to deny it even exists. If you are trying to get a leadership job (President of the US) shouldn’t you show some real leadership by stating what you believe, acting on it and standing up to those who disagree?
