Are they running for non-president?

I've actually been here for about 10 years; but, hello (anyway). I lost access to my old account, a while back, and started over.

I have been forced to consider that democrats and republicans are purposefully trying to stay out of the white house. I sure would not volunteer to take over as the new captain of the Titanic after it was inevitably sinking.

Early in the 2008 election campaign, I did not believe that this country was ready for a female or minority president. I am far from racist or sexist; but, racial and sexual tension-mixed with tradition-seemed too abundant in this country to accept a change. Plus, we already had 8 years of Hilary. To top this off, Obama sounds a lot like Osama; Hussein serves as a grim reminder of Saddam; and, a lot of Muslim rumors were floating around. Name recognition, semantics, and religion are very important. I thought McCain could nap through the campaign and win in a land slide. It became quite clear that he did not want the presidency when he chose Sara Palin as a running mate. I can just see the d's and r's calling each other back and forth saying "top that."

For 2012 the republicans are narrowing the list of worst presidential candidates. In a moment of panic--after learning that Donald Trump may enter the race, democrats try to pass off a birth certificate, that could have easily been modified by a third grader, as proof of natural citizenship. At this point, it doesn't really matter if he was born here or not; he sucks...period. Don't take that too personal; I am not sure that anyone could make sense of the complex issues facing this country right now. There are a lot of people unhappy right now; and, they are going to blame the chief.

So, the democrats must go with the incumbent. That already sounds bad enough; but, it could be Biden if Obama is booted. Don't get me wrong; every administration needs a good goof-ball. They just don't need to be in charge. This, in my opinion, almost guarantees a republican win.

It's Palin or Trump people. No wonder the world ends right after the election.

I'm not much of a dooms-dayer;but, this reminds me of a sporting event. When there is no hope of winning or losing, you send in your crappy players.

Interesting theory.

Makes me think of some comedy sketches I've seen.

"After you."

"No, after you."

"No, after you. I insist."
