Jon Huntsman, a GOP candidate for president, tweeted that he believes in evolution and trusts scientists on global warming. Huntsman ended the tweet with “call me crazy”. What’s crazy about that? I’ll tell you what, that he has to make a statement like that, because no other candidate in his party is willing to acknowledge facts. This is 2011. I can find no other word to describe this except, sad.
During a debate all the GOP candidates raised their hands and said they did not believe in evolution. Science matters people.
The candidate from Texas compared the GOP’s fight to keep taxes low to the civil rights movement. Moron talking.
At one of his rallies, the flip-flop millionaire candidate said that corporations are people. He is also about to demolish one of his four homes and rebuild an 11,000+ square foot mansion in place of it. He has every right to do that, but my goodness the timing.
One of them, which I know of, doesn’t know basic history and claims she will bring gas prices down to $2.00 a gallon if she is elected president. She clearly doesn’t have a clue about OPEC and neither do I, but I know the president cannot control the price of oil.
And the same one having a problem with history wished Elvis happy birthday on the day of his death. Good thing he was not here to witness that.
Oh, and although she is not a candidate, let’s not forget about the one that goes around and steals the spotlight from all the other candidates and won’t say whether she will run or not. I used to think she was the dumbest of all, but now I don’t know if that’s the case. Um, yes, she still is.
These are the frontrunners according to our media. Tell me what this country has come to when people actually consider voting for people like this? This can’t be the best of the bunch.
If these people were in any profession other than politics their lack of knowledge would be unacceptable. But for some reason republicans and some independents in this country have come to accept little or nothing from politicians. I think that is irresponsible. How can you seriously vote for a person to represent you and they don’t know anything about the job they are supposed to do and are insensitive to what people are going through.
It’s disheartening that we expect so little knowledge from our leaders today. But if they happen to cheat on their spouse that is an absolute atrocity and we will not tolerate it. I am not condoning cheating I’m just saying. Don’t have any knowledge about government and world issues, excellent. Did you cheat, you’re finished!
I agree with some of the outrage over adultery, which is why I believe the same standard should be applied for lack of knowledge and compassion. It is unacceptable for a candidate to be elected to office and then six months later the constituents decide that he was a terrible choice and his approval rating is less than 30% (Florida governor). I have to ask, what were you doing while that person was campaigning? This casual attitude hurts our country.
I’m hoping that whichever GOP candidate emerges will ultimately be the loser in 2012. We can’t let this be what represents us. The world is watching and I shudder to think what they must be thinking about our country and our political system. More importantly, we should care about those things.
