      Elmer Fudd could run the country, better that it is being run right now.

        He gets my vote...plus his speeches would be very entertaining...just trying to figure out what he is saying!
        I wonder how he would poll going into the elections?

      We are. Democratic republic and all that.
      I can't name a single man worthy of the position of leadership. But anyone worthy of the position would by nature know that they are not worthy of the position.
      Or, if you want a name, J.C. Watt of Oklahoma comes close. If only he'd run.

      John Boehner comes to mind.
      He's got a strong, measured way of speaking, and seems to have strong moral values as well.  Plus experience.

      But as of right now, as the top leadership stands now, almost anyone could run the country better.  Obama's and Pelosi's and Reid's and Hillary's examples have set the standard bar reeeeally lowwww.

    In my opinion we need a smart business man to run the nation. Maybe Donald Trump.

      Yeah...I read where he got started with Government money...So at least he knows how to make government money go to work for him...However...there is the matter of him declaring bankruptcy...we don't need any more help in that direction!

      Maybe...Jerry Jones would fit the bill nicely. We need someone who gets mad over every loss...and starts firing. That would really clean house! Though...it would have to be made clear ahead of time...that we are not going to have a Nike Swoop added to the White House or Capitol to add revenue!

    The most qualified people are probably not good enough with speeches to get elected. Right now it is more important to look and sound good over actually doing anything.

    "President Obama and the Democrats in Congress want to preserve the Bush tax cuts that benefit the middle class and lower income earners, while letting those provisions that benefit only people with very high incomes expire on schedule at the end of this year. The Republicans disagree. And thus things sit, even though, unfathomably, under the Republicans' plan, nearly all of the benefit of the extension they're seeking would go to the richest 1% of Americans, people with incomes of more than $500,000 a year. The majority of even this amount would go to the richest one-tenth of one percent, the least wealthy of whom have annual incomes of more than $2 million and the average of whom makes more than $7 million a year.

    Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner and his compatriots would have us believe that they are the only ones standing in the way of the complete ruin of American small business and the American family farm. According to Boehner, Republicans will do everything they can to protect these businesses and farms even if it means Republicans have to -- have to! -- push for continued tax cuts that overwhelmingly benefit the extremely wealthy."

    UhHuh....REAl moral values...NOT!
    Experience, yes! He's been on the gvt payroll for decades.

    I LIKE Obama, Pelosi, Kaptur, Grayson et all.......THEY are my pick to lead.  Ooooops, I already got them!
