Lately, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been trading barbs about who is qualified to be President of the United States. Mrs. Clinton said Sanders isn’t qualified because he hasn’t had all of her experiences. Senator Sanders said Clinton isn’t qualified because of her ties to Wall Street bankers.
For once, I agree with both Clinton and Sanders!
Hillary Clinton isn’t qualified to be President because her experience has been mostly bad. Remember the “Reset Button” with Russia? Remember Hillary’s support for the Arab Spring, which gave rise to ISIS/ISIL/ICUP/whatever name they’re going by this week? Of course, we could always ask Ambassador Chris Stevens for his opinion on Mrs. Clinton’s leadership qualifications. Oh, wait…
Bernie Sanders isn’t qualified to be President because he lacks even a basic understanding of how a constitutional republic or a free market economy (both of which we still have, last time I checked) works. No matter how much “free” stuff he offers, it will not balance the books, boost the economy, or fly in the halls of Congress or the courts of the land. Besides, do we really want a President who looks like he gets his hair cut at a low-rent pet salon?
Although the Clinton and Sanders campaigns have a legitimate political basis by which to question each others’ Presidential qualifications, it opens up a larger conversation where neither one measures up. But, who am I to argue with the Benghazi Bungler and the Socialist Septuagenarian? Neither one has my vote for President, and I have them both to thank for making my decision that much easier.
