Could we all step back a little from the “You’re unqualified!” “No, you’re unqualified!” accusations? No candidate up for nomination in any party is 100% qualified for the presidency by everyone’s standard. Look at
the dipshit George W. who led this country for 8 years despite his lousy qualifications.
In contrast to the Republican candidates this year, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are among the best qualified candidates around. Neither one of them should be attacking one another’s qualifications to be president and I’d like to call on their supporters to quit it too. There are plenty of issues and policy positions to talk about. Attacking one another just isn’t productive for anyone except the ultimate opponent in the general election. If you get enough Democrats to say they will never vote for Clinton, I’m sure the Republican nominee will send you a cookie. And if you insult enough Clinton supporters, I’m sure they will stay home or even jump ship if Sanders ends up on the ticket.
The real issue in this election, in my opinion, is not which Democrat is most qualified to be President — there is no lack of information on what each stands for, and each of us can decide for ourselves. The real issue is that the only possible 2 frontrunners for the Republican nomination are two sides of the same nightmare. Trump is obviously unqualified for office by his record (NONE), and he is unfit to speak in front of children, let alone to represent the U.S.A. in front of the world. His “policy positions” are based on what causes the most incendiary reaction from poorly educated and unsophisticated crowds. On the other hand, Cruz has run-of-the-mill traditional qualifications for office, but his opinions on social issues are so off in the fringes that most people actually cringe when confronted with the possibly of a Cruz presidency. He is grossly unqualified to lead a big diverse country primarily due to his lunatic religious views. Anyone who values religious tolerance, diversity, intellectual curiosity and freedom cannot support him.
