Democrats doom U.S. with Clinton, Obama candidacies

We need some new leadership from real leaders, not from tired party hacks and people who have failed to demonstrate any real leadership qualities.

Leaders don't stand around whining about who is charge. They take charge.

Leaders don't place blame for failure on others. They take responsibility for their actions and accept responsibility for failure.

Leaders don't follow political party agendas. They set their own agendas.

Leaders don't rush in whenever there's a disaster and take credit for any small success. They deal with the problem and move on.

The inveitable flood of U.S. Senators and Representatives who are going to stand before the cameras over the next year and tell us "we need new leadership, blah, blah, blah" won't produce one single leader. None of them are qualified. Out of 535 people serving in the U.S. Congress today, none are leaders.

And we don't just need a leader. We need a strong leader. Historians will tell you quickly that, throughout history, strong leaders usually introduce themselves very simply, sometimes even gracefully. In their correspondence, their treaties, their declarations, they basically say, "I so-and-so set forth on this day blah-blah-blah."

Weak leaders, on the other hand, are the ones who toot their horns, who form "exploratory committees", who rely upon press conferences to influence the real leaders, who extol their own virtues.

If the people of the United States really wanted Barack O'Bama or Hilary Clinton as the President, you'd see hundreds, thousands of bloggers every day suggesting that these people need to be in the white house.

Once you zoom past the hard-core Democratic bloggers, you get nothing. No grass-roots demand for press conferencing exploratory committeeing leaders.

The Republican Party, being just as corrupt and pathetic as the Democratic Party, at least has had the good sense not to signal its intent for 2008 Presidential campaigns. We can enjoy bashing the Democrats for their ludicrous self-bleating for a while before the Republicans return to show us that there ain't no intelligent life in Congress.

Scotty, 300 million to beam up. Be sure to leave the Democrats and Republicans behind so they can pick new "leaders".

I agree in general, but is there anyone you think is a potential strong leader right now? What about Giullani?

Maybe Giuliani. I'm waiting to see what tumbles out of his closet.
