Mitt Romney is a big dude who has worked very hard for 65 years to achieve incredible wealth, raised a great family, comes from a great family, and has a wonderful wife who has overcome incredible adversity. He is accomplished, credentialed, trustworthy, confident, and has spun gold his entire professional life. That does not happen because he is Mr. Lucky; it happened because he is diligent and understands what it takes to make a profit, unlike the folks who have infiltrated Washington, DC over the past few decades and run the country into the gutter with unspeakable naivete.
When did this country make a U-Turn and decide a man of Mr. Romney’s stature was wrong?
As great CEO’s often do, they bring along a prodigy to follow in their footsteps. In order for one to do that they must feel comfortable in their own skin, have confidence in themselves, and have vision for whatever enterprise they run by picking and/or anointing a successor. That short description is what defines Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and quite by accident, defines Mr. Obama.
Barack Obama picked Joe Biden.
Even after four years, anyone with a moral compass and two ounces of brains still says, “You gotta be kidding me.” Why is everyone afraid to call the vice president of the United States a kook? Have we completely and totally relinquished our rights to call a spade a spade because of what people might say about us? I think we have.
Joe Biden is a straight-up nut-ball, and I haven’t seen that explanation anywhere by anyone for any reason and can only surmise it is because it would reflect poorly on someone to say so. Well, guess what. I’m not that particular chicken. The man has been a heartbeat away from the presidency for four years, is going to remain so for another four years if Mr. Obama gets re-elected, and everyone remains mum.
Joe Biden’s past is littered with outré and freakish behavior and plagiarism and directly involved with the witch hunts involving Robert Bork and Judge Clarence Thomas, and we now are supposed to accept him as running mate once again for The Amateur, when in fact everyone slept through the fact that a modern-media poser selected a crackpot for a his vice president the first time around and now expects to be rewarded with another term?
OK. I’m going to de-café. My point is simple; executives are defined by those with whom they surround themselves, and Mr. Obama is going to try to re-up with arguably one of the biggest fools the country has ever known, and believes that will counter-act the powerhouse of Romney/Ryan.
Why do you think Hillary Clinton gave him a “no-can-do?” Because she has an inborn political survival gene, along with her husband. I don’t have much good to say about either one of them, much less their hypocrisy, yet I know a couple pros when I see them, and they are professional politicians and Mr. Obama is not.
And Joe Biden is other-earthly. In fact, I’m still not sure what he is.
