    Obama lacked experience as an executive office running anything. The EO in CEO stands for executive officer, so he does have more experience running things.

    If you are picking far-right conservative Rick Perry, that hasn't even said he's going to run, as the person you think will win the Republican nomination, than the old saying must be true, that hope springs eternal, even in the hearts of Conservatives! Actually, I would prefer Obama ran against a far-right candidate then I would the more likely candidate, moderate Romney.

    So I hope you get your wish my friend! Try to stay dry!
    personally, i would like a mccain type candidate...somewhat a bit more moderate, but i dont consider perry to be far right but is solidly conservative. i think he would servive all the "conservative enough" claims of the far right, and is someone the average republican and conservative independants can live with.

    While there is not much we agree on CP, I agree with your assessment here.

    Well best of luck there Mac, but IMO, these seem like far-right positions:

    *"During the 2006 gubernatorial election campaign, Perry said he supported teaching intelligent design alongside evolution in Texas schools. A spokeswoman for Perry called intelligent design a "valid scientific theory", a view not supported by the scientific community and overruled by a federal judge."

    *"Perry does not believe there is valid scientific proof of anthropogenic global warming. He has said several times that there is no scientific consensus on the issue."

    *"Perry opposes regulation of greenhouse gas emissions because he says it would have "devastating implications" for the Texas economy and energy industry."

    *"Perry invited his friend, rock musician Ted Nugent, to perform at a black-tie gala hours after Perry's second inauguration ceremony on January 16, 2007. Nugent appeared onstage during the inaugural ball wearing a cutoff T-shirt emblazoned with the Confederate flag and shouting derogatory remarks about non-English speakers, according to press reports.[78] The NAACP condemned Nugent's flying of the Confederate flag, but he denied intentionally making any racially offensive comments and stated that the flag is a symbol of southern heritage."

    *"Texas is a unique place. When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that... My hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention. We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, who knows what may come of that."

    *"Perry supports Arizona immigration law SB 1070 and is willing to sign a similar bill in Texas."

    Except for maybe the first, I don't think any of this is any more than mainstream Republican.

    He did run the KC Federal Reserve Bank, too

    Bachmann's getting louder, Cain is getting noticed.

    Experience in being the executive of a company is far different from being the executive of a government. For one, CEOs usually don't have to worry about checks and balances. For another, they tend to make policy as well as execute it, while the legislature has the power to make policy.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
