I have a solution....you're gonna love it!

by Jim McKinney

So President Obama decided...like millions of other Americans...to fill out a bracket for the Big Dance...by the way...he picked Michigan State to win it all (thanks Mr. President)...for taking the few moments to complete that task...he has been taken to task for doing it at all...after all...we elected this guy to run the country...guide the Free World...not have any fun...how dare you, Mr. President...HOW DARE YOU!  A good majority of the comments would seem to come from people that, one, didn't vote for Mr. Obama...and two...do not approve of the way he is running America...both of these are legitimate feelings...we all have our opinions...but it does give one thought over the venom directed at our Chief Executive...and I have a possible solution to this situation...

Here's my idea- all of you who feel that President Obama is leading, and has led, our country down a path of no good...do this from now until the next election...perform a thorough and complete vetting of each and every possible candidate from your party, to insure that there are no surprises come October of 2016...remind, on a constant basis, each and every member of your party to not do or say anything stupid or nonsensical....EVER...mobilize the troops and gear them up to put forth the best effort possible...choose a candidate that represents the best your party can offer...and then do your level best to get that person elected to the highest office in the land...if you can't do these things...then you need to be quiet...if you bellyache about the President of the United States taking a few moments to fill out a NCAA bracket...but didn't do everything you could have to put Mitt in the Oval Office...then you are wrong...plain and simple...you have a goal...make it happen...or live with the results and try better next time...
