    It seems like all of these candidates on both sides of the political spectrum are just buffoons. There isn't one of them that can walk to the podium and COMMAND respect. We have no more leaders in America. There is no one that is respectable. No one with a solid background, no one that the WORLD would look to and respect. It's just a shame. All the GOP candidates are just laughable that they would actually control our world and so is anything that the democrats can produce. They are all just a complete joke.

    It's just so sad...11 years ago the best we could come up with is Bush...that was a joke..Then the best we could get is Obama..Another joke. Just a sad sad situation.

    IMHO Romney has the talent to fix the US, I just don't know if he'd fix it for the 99% or for the 1%.

    Totally agree that we rarely see talented guys with America's future as the top priority. They are usually wheeler-dealers with their handlers making deals.

    And those that could Don't want to enter politics which swerves into Newt's assertion that the Media and thier attacks on people make it so those that could won't.

    I can't blame them for staying in the private sector...for now...:eusa_whistle:

    OTOH most of the pols are lawyers, who aren't trained in making tough policy decisions or managing large organizations or large corporations.

    How do you think these guys would do as president
    1. Warren Buffet
    2. Bill Gates
    3. Jack Welch
    4. Samuel J. Palmisano (IBM)
    5. Rex Tillerson (Exxon)
    6. Big Bank CEOs
    7. (a guy like Steve Jobs)
    8. McChrystal
    9. Petraeus

    Is being one of the most talented guys enough to be a good president?

    Damn good question. Best one of the year imo.

    Will there ever be anyone worth voting for again? Not until we change the way we run our elections.

    Stupid people voting leads to stupid candidates and stupid politicians.

    The rich get two representatives on the ballot and the rabble gets to choose among them. What did any of you think would happen when all you can do is worship money and the people who have lots of it.

    If I had to guess I would say no look at the choices over the past few elections Bush or Gore Bush or Kerry Obama or McCain and now Obama and either Romney or Gingrich these choices could drive one over the edge.cuckoo:

    Candidate with description of chief contribution
    1. Warren Buffet - reduces government red tape
    2. Bill Gates - monopolizes government by purchasing competitive ideas and then eliminating them
    3. Jack Welch - overachieves balancing budget by 4000%
    4. Samuel J. Palmisano (IBM) - makes fortune on legal personal cash printers, but nobody minds because they can afford everything
    5. Rex Tillerson (Exxon) - restored gas industry oils wheels of economic boom
    6. Big Bank CEOs - use Obama's machine to keep running government while they write themselves huge monthly bonuses
    7. (a guy like Steve Jobs) - sacrifices past for bold new future
    8. McChrystal - replaces press room protocol with televised power point meetings which he conducts with cabinet members poised for answering questions in their domain.
    9. Petraeus - wins in Middle East without resorting to United Nations bullshit by eliminating threats through dialogue with key people on the ground.
