Morning Joe has been the official fan club of Donald Trump. Trump is able to do his call ins whenever he wants. They rarely challenge him they simply give Trump an AM platform. This morning Rick Santorum appeared on the show to say he was endorsing Marco Rubio. Usually an endorsement is an easy interview but Joe took the opportunity to act as the Grand Inquisitor. He asked Santorum to name one thing Rubio had accomplished while in the Senate. Santorum was stumped and when Joe smelled blood he went in for the kill. If it had been court it would have been badgering, if it were a fight the referee would have stopped it. It was beyond uncomfortable it was unfair and unwarranted. Some say the question was fair, but in this case the real question was was it necessary? Share your thoughts.

My husband made this point this morning. While watching a Ben Carson my husband said that Carson studied long and hard to become a surgeon. He went on to ask the simple question, “would you let someone operate on you who was not a surgeon?” The answer is no. You want someone with experience and they know what they are doing. So why would we elect a person to lead this country with no experience in politics? Share your thoughts.
2016 presidential contenders include: an egomaniac, a socialist, a liar, a man who can’t keep his campaign money separated from his personal money, a failed Fortune 500 executive, a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who never learned to fight, a man who overcame the hood to perform amazing surgery, a man who can’t get along with his colleagues, a man who has a problem saying no to donuts, a man who stands proudly with lawbreakers and a man that is a military hawk. All of these people want sit in the oval office and none of them are perfect. We have that in common with them, but even if you disagree with them they are doing something. They have an idea and a commitment to this country. So as we sit on our couches with our popcorn waiting on the next shoe to drop give them a little credit for at least being willing to try.
This election season us proving to be amusing. Dr. Ben Carson has the calmest demeanor. he has been described as unflappable. He makes his point without raising his voice. He refuses to get in the mud with Donald Trump even when Trump hangs the low energy moniker on him, but what makes this funny is America is quick to label a black man as angry. Carson is the opposite and his calm demeanor seems to be a bone of contention. SMH
We will elect a new president in November of 2016, but judging by the media obsession one would think that election day is next month not over a year from now. Somewhere along the way politics turned into entertainment and entertainment populates the media on a 24/7 basis. Candidates make the rounds from state fairs to late night television all in search of voters. They will do stand up, sing-a-longs, baby kissing…you name it nothing is off limits, but is the way we want to select the most powerful leader on earth? Share your thoughts.
