In this post, I covered the tiff between Donald Trump, billionaire candidate for the Presidency, and John McCain, Republican Senator from Arizona. In that column, I said that:
Personally, I have no desire whatsoever for Donald Trump to become the President of the United States, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with his opinion of John McCain.
I should have noted something else: Any of the Republican Presidential candidates would be a better President, by orders of magnitude, than Hillary Clinton, the logical next step of the Great Obama Decline.
From the ridiculous (Trump) to the sublime (Carson), the Republicans are awash in people who would do, or would have done, a better job than Obama-Clinton.
Don’t read too, too much into that: a kumquat would do, or would have done, a better job than Obama-Clinton.
It’s long past time to demand of Republicans that they field intelligent, substantive candidates.(1) They appear to be living up to that responsibility with Fiorina, Carson, Paul, Walker, Rubio, Kasich and some more, but we don’t need just a great candidate, we need a great President.
To help clean up the Obama wreckage.
(1) – Because the Democrats signaled, decades ago, that they were no longer interested in presenting us with anyone but complete nitwits.
Can you imagine that? The fate of the world for the foreseeable future rests in the hands of the leadership of the Republican Party.
