I’m hearing all over the news today about Oprah Winfrey possibly running for President. Really? I guess anybody can try this job. Haven’t we learned anything? Isn’t it time to take this job seriously again? It’s no secret that Trump is having a rough go. I mean c’mon. President of the United States, no experience needed, just a desire to do it and money. What other organization can a person run without any experience, better than a qualified person with experience? McDonalds? Nope. Trash Man? Nope …
The people that clean the urinals at sport’s stadiums? Nope. The people that paint the lines on highways? Nope. The team of people that cut grass at your local schools and parks? Nope. The team of people that direct traffic around construction? Nope. People that haul food? Nope. People that make tires? Nope. Get my point? I can’t think of one job. Not one. A qualified person in these jobs will be able to run the organization better than one with no experience.
If we can agree that these tasks aren’t as complicated as President, then why do we consider people with no experience to be Commander in Chief?
I have nothing against Oprah Winfrey, believe me. I think she’s a very inspirational person and I enjoy some of the entertainment she provides. She has overcome some extreme obstacles in her life to become one of the richest and most well known people on the planet. I’m glad that she is empowering women. She’s a great example of what being an “Amercan” really means. I applaud her for that. I have three daughters and they need strong role models like her.
However, I do not think she should be President of the U.S. Her or any other celebrity with no political experience.
The resume needs to be more than, “I am rich and I want to do it”. To lead the U.S. well, we need to get back to electing someone with experience. The job is too important. Yet, I’m actually hearing people say, “hey, this is a good idea”. I disagree. Let’s make sure we put the right person in next time and not another gimmick President.
