Vet candidates vigorously

After listening to how many unsavory characters President Obama has been affiliated with over the years, people should wonder why he was allowed to run for the highest office in the country. From my perspective, Obama is the poster child for why we need a formal job application in all 50 states.


Like any job one would apply for, there should be specific requirements and guidelines to follow. Other than the constitutional requirements, I believe that, to qualify for said position, education, experience, leadership and a psychiatric evaluation should be mandatory. Why should we be at the mercy of another charlatan?

Further, it is pretty much common knowledge that people are molded into who they are by family, friends and those they associate with.

Obama sat in the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years listening to the vitriol that was spewed out to the congregation by a radical preacher.

He worked as a community organizer and had very close ties to William Ayers, who was a cofounder of a self-described communist revolutionary group that bombed government buildings in the 1960s and ’70s.

He was also a speaker at a student protest rally at Harvard Law School and praised another known radical with contemptuous racial beliefs, Prof. Derrick Bell. If you read Bell’s profile, you will see that he headed up many positions in and out of government. He kept resigning one step ahead of being fired or asked to resign due to his radical beliefs. Obama was shown embracing this man after his campus speech.

The way I look at it is, if you sleep with dogs, you get up with fleas. We definitely need a new rule of law in electing our president.
