Am I the only one who, upon seeing the front page photograph of the 10 Republican Party presidential hopefuls, thought: ‘Ah, hello, is this the General Motors board of
directors’? Each candidate is an aging, White guy.
The Republican Party has zero diversity and little originality in its offerings. And, while the aging white guys all applaud the rollback of Roe v. Wade and love what’s happening in Iraq, they are dangerously out of touch with the way most Americans think.
The right-wing Christian fundamentalist faction may embrace these dudes, but the majority of Americans will reject the ultimate candidate as being irrelevant and representative of what used to be and not what is and will be. The Republicans need an image overhaul…pronto.
More than an image overhaul, they need a thinking overhaul.
And three of them don’t believe in evolution? Talk about being out of touch.
I’ve always felt that anyone running for president should, in addition to the natural-born citizen and age requirements, be required to a) have a degree in History and/or Law so that they better understand the American Constitution, separation of powers, and genesis of separation of church and state; and b) have lived in several different parts of the U.S. as well as overseas, to enusre more informed thinking. Not sure many of the candidates in the recent debate, however, would meet this criteria.
