Okay, first of all, I’m really not interested in running, just to be clear. However, in the scenario that I would end up becoming President, I would only say to people what I think is the way to go, but keep engaged with them as much as possible. At the same time, I also think that having meetings with the leadership in Congress is another way to keep in touch with everyone. It’s something I would try to do on a regular basis. One thing I know that I cannot do is make too many high stakes promises, especially knowing the reality of politics, but I can tell people that will be as honest as I can and explain to them what choices come before us. In my opinion, it’s better to be straightforward with the American people, especially once in power, and it’s better to keep everyone in the loop about what’s at stake.
I can say this quite easily, there is no rhyme or reason for this unbelievably abhorrent behavior displayed by the Republicans over this past year. From the failed union busting bill in Ohio to the gubernatorial recall election in Wisconsin, these are just small examples of how far they are willing to go to stay in power. This is absolutely insane, and I really wish they would wake up to the fact that the public is becoming turned off by their extreme rhetoric. Plus I have not heard one real solution from their side of the aisle.
