Bill Clinton, Barak Obama and Franklin Roosevelt were not elected to the presidency as businessmen, but we are now told that we need a businessman to run the government. I say no!
The affairs of government are not purely business; I would call government affairs more akin to family functions. There are business aspects but many areas of government remind me of the stresses of family life including the caring for members that can't quite "cut it."
I hear certain businessmen saying downsizing and outsourcing may result in some pain in the short term but in the long run it will be good for the country. I remember the words of Harry Hopkins: "Man does not eat in the long run, he eats ever day."
I want to live in a country of family members, perhaps widely disparate but each being of equal worth and each eating every day. I am voting for Democrats.
