The Cato Institute’s Dan Mitchell recently posted an excellent “Good News on Young People and Gun Control.” Dan ran the numbers from a PBS poll (not exactly a gun crowd) answering the question, “Would you support more restrictions on guns in your state?” An astounding 95.09% of those responding answered no.
Previously, Dan ran a graphic, “Thinking about the United States Presidents we have had since World War II, which one would you consider the best/worst president?” No surprise, Barack Obama comes in last and Ronald Reagan on top. Looking at the list of 12 presidents, there are many reasons that Obama falls easily into the last place slot.
Taking a completely impartial (which I’m certainly not) look, I would suggest all interested parties ask a simple question: Which of the 12 listed presidents had the thinnest presidential resume? Not an objective soul in America could get this wrong. Obama’s resume could have come in on a postage stamp. The guy is an absolute cipher who, as events have demonstrated, is in far over his head at the White House. And the American voters gave Obama a second term? Doesn’t give me a lot of confidence about the future. And what does the 2017 presidential dance card initially look like? How about Clinton/Bush for a stomach turner? The only solution is for America to morph into a multi-party system, like in France, where a third party could actually win in 2017.
