    I hate to break this to you, but that is not the only requirement of the job. Trump would not make a good president no matter how well or poorly he has done in business.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Look at these comments. It's clear why we are in such a hole.

    I like Obama's smile.

    GOP celebrities like Sarah Palin aren't getting much buzz. Mainstream candidates like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty aren't getting much traction. It's people once considered highly unlikely to compete seriously for the party's nomination who are creating big stirs in early voting states, a reflection of an unformed and uncertain GOP presidential field.

    GOP activists in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina appear deeply intrigued by, and open to, a run by Donald Trump.....


    Here you go Republicans....here is your man. Run Donald Run.....With his extremist birther views and bad tupee....I think he is the perfect GOP candidate.

    Yeah the perfect GOP candidate to give Obama his second term.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In 1988 a professor at the University of Iowa told a bunch of political science majors that we shoudl vote for the best looking candidate because the American people were too stupid to deal with the issues. I was quite insulted back then, but look at our last few presidents -- Clinton, Bush, Obama. Can we really say we chose candidates who had a masterful grasp of the issues, who made honest and compelling arguments?

    It's a lie that we're too stupid. We're too busy.

    I'll accept that. As I said, I was offended and disagreed. However, regardless of the reason, I've been disappointed in our choices.

    Maybe it's time for a major political reform. A clean slate. But how?...

    We've got about 250 million firearms! Perhaps that's the real reason behind the 2nd Ammendment?
