Why can't we get a good president? Does any one besides me feel like its pointless who is elected to the white house? I love America.

For someone to make a good leader it cant be about the money or pride they must have a servants heart and know that its not about them but its about our nation and the impact we make on our world

One of the best answers I've ever heard on here. Hope you don't mind if I use that from time to time.

Anyone smart enough wouldn't want the job. CEOs make ten times what the president makes and has less to deal with!

Because too many Americans do not pay attention. They vote for things like the first black president and never look into what his plans are. Or they vote for Hope and Change without asking just what is it he wants to change. I wish people who say they hate politics would stay home on election day.

Most of us vote for my needs and my friends needs, and for sound bites, instead of analyzing what is best for the majority, long term, so we don't agree on what a "good" president should do. Worse those elected rarely follow though on their campaign promises.

Republicans vote for their party--Democrats vote for theirs--no votes for someone who might be able to do "THE JOB". All presidents have to fight Congress to be able to do things--if the majority of them are a different party than he is, it's a fight to the finish. Either way, the pres. is the fall guy

It takes a lot of work to be president; it's no walk in the park, but I agree there is too much fighting in our goverment, can't we all just get along? I mean, really two -year olds act better.

For the most part, our "over-bloated" Federal Government has become comprised of far too many power-stricken individuals who have no interest in anything other than the furthering of their own position. (with few exceptions) They haven't a clue what this country is about, as they believe it's all about them. They are "lost" in their own "self importance" - and, therefore, we are lost as well. Too bad cloning wasn't in effect when Ronald Reagan was still alive. There was a true leader.

Yes, very well put and I imagine he's rolling over in his grave right now.

I don't remember his quote exactly but it was something like this....

A recession is when your neighbor looses his job.
A depression is when you loose your job
And a recovery is when Jimmy Carter looses the white house!!!!!

I still get a little teary eyed when I think of Reagan. He loved this country called it a shinning city on a hill. He understood that we have a God given respsonabilty to be just that, a example if you will. Instead of blaming our goverment let us each look to ourselves and see what our part is in that.

Because we elect career politicians instead of true patriots with our best interests at heart. What we need is a good true solid conservative with the balls to stand up to these democrats head on and tell them and the American people the real truth and not worry about who does and doesn't like it and go from there. Instead of just telling people what they want to hear and lie to them like the guy we got now. You do realize he's campaigning in all 57 states for this election too??.... Right.... LOL

Good answer (in my opinion). I was just realizing how many times he has visited California in the past couple of months. I live in Cali. It's so obvious that all his promises and programs failed miserably. There is some blind people hear to not look around and see the failure. Thanks for your input. I feel a little less alone.

He didn't necessarily fail all those people.

They're getting their welfare. I heard one state is giving cell phones with 100 or 1000 minutes a month ( don't recall ) and also a used car with free tags, registration, and insurance for 1 year. Didn't catch which state it was. I caught the tail end of it.

They're illegal friends are getting they're welfare, food stamps, housing, and if he has his way citizenship too.

They got their stimulus checks for a 1000 bucks or whatever and loved that.

They figure anyone doing all this for them just can't be doing this to the economy and listen to their democrat friends and left wing media and buy into the lies.... Hook, line, and sinker!
