Tell us about firing the people who matter, civil servants. Firing Congressman and Supreme Court Judges also works poorly.
“They are accustomed to being able to fire people who disagree with them and as politicians they can’t.”
LOL – let’s count how many cabinet members Donald Trump blew through.
The other problem with business leaders as Presidents is that, as business leaders, their goal is to maximize revenues. I don’t want the government trying to maximize its revenue.
Steven Berson – They’re trying to boost their personal profile. There is precedent for failing at a Presidential bid and landing a spot on the national committee as a consolation prize.
As a general statement successful company Presidents make poor elected politicians. They are accustomed to being able to fire people who disagree with them and as politicians they can’t. An obvious exception would be people who passed through companies with heavy unionization, e.g., Hollywood, where firing is challenging.
I agree with you Anastasia. He should run as a Libertarian candidate for lower level offices first. That will provide him with proper tests of his abilities and loyalty.
Why does a constant parade of people with zero national level name recognition and no record of either holding even a local elected office or major accomplishment in the private sector always seem to think that they are top of the ticket material for 40+ State level ballot access third parties?
So he’s been in three parties in as many years. .. excuse me for thinking the crowning jewel the LP can offer – our Presidential nomination – should go to someone who’s been around for more than a few minutes and proven they’re with us for the long haul.
