In Trump We Trust? I Don’t Think So

What’s up with Donald Trump and his obsession with where President Obama was born?  If he really wants to be president he needs a little more substantial plan for running the country.

Under no circumstances would I want this guy to be president but at least he sounds honest about where he stands. He notes that Mr. Obama’s biggest accomplishment was the 2008 campaign and that the President has no deal-making skills.  I can’t disagree.  On foreign policy Mr. Trump is very clear: “I’m only interested in Libya if we keep the oil.” He correctly points out that Afghanistan has become an endless cycle of we build something, al-Qaeda blows it up.

Still, I’m sure I don’t want an egomaniacal, billionaire celebrity running America. We have bunch of those people in Congress and they are totally inept.
