Hillary and Rudy -- A Couple of Thoughts

Kitty sent out an e-mail with a bit from the NY Post's Page Six about an endorsement for Rudy by a couple of former drug kingpins from NY: Frank Lucas and Nicky Barnes (whose story is told in the movie "American Gangster" starring Denzel Washington and Cuba Gooding, Jr.). Obviously no one wants that kind of endorsement, but that's not the point of this post.

One of the things Frank Lucas says is, "I don't think they're [Americans] ready for an Italian president."

What is it with our constant emphasis on the skin color, ethinicity, and sex of a person? I get so tired of hearing that America isn't ready for this-or-that kind of president. Rudy may be of Italian extraction, but as he was born and raised here, he's American first and foremost. And isn't that what it's all about?

What America needs is a competent president -- sex, color and ethnic heritage notwithstanding. As long as I think someone can lead and has the experience and values I believe are important, then that's the person I'll vote for.

Speaking of voting for someone just because of who she is, why would I vote for Hillary Clinton "just because" she's a woman? She would be a disaster for our country. No stranger to scandal (and adept at stonewalling and trying to cover it up), she also has plans to further socialize this nation that has already had quite enough of that nonsense. If you'd like to know what kind of person she is, take a look at this site -- it has a slide show with plenty of quotes directly from the horse's mouth that show what an uncouth, ethically-challenged, out-and-out socialist she really is.

Then let me know if you still want to vote for her.

If we look at the upsurge in crimes like noose hangings, sexual assault, etc, I think we can agree that *some* people are not ready for a black president, or a woman president, or even an Italian president. I definitely agree with you that competence should be the most important thing, but not everyone has come to that point. I certainly wish they would.

His Italian background will help him in states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania--both have large Italian populations and are within reach of Republicans in 2008.

being italian won't help him because he's not very popular in these areas. italians don't just vote for another italian.

I have a theory about this "ready for" stuff (the word "stuff" being a euphemism for something else less pleasant). This Frank Lucas gentleman fits right into it, since he posed his question in the context of endorsing Rudy.

I have noticed that these people are always talking about individuals, not about classes. And contrary to what they might want you to think, they want that individual to win. Someone asking "Is America ready for a woman President?" is not asking about whether Linda Chavez could be President, or whether Condoleezza Rice could be President. They mean Hillary, and they're for Hillary.

This guy at work has asked, repeatedly, "Is America ready for a black President?" At least twice, just from what I've seen...neither time succeeding in starting the stimulating, challenging discussion he wants to start. When the subject fails to morph into an Obama love-fest, he throws subtlety to the wind and changes the subject himself.

I find this more than strange, because once he's all but demanded we gather around and come up with good things to say about Obama, he himself has very little material. Something about being "the real deal." Almost as if he's gathering material.

But yeah, the unspoken answer to the rhetorical "Is America Ready" question, no matter which candidate is made the focus of it, always seems to be the same: "Impossible to say, but she certainly SHOULD be ready." I guess we're all supposed to get ultra-ticked-off at this racism, sexism, and general prejudice -- that we don't even know for a fact exists in a meaningful way -- and trudge off to the polls in an effort to fight it, without studying the selected candidate's position on any of the issues, fixating instead on his/her class membership.

It's exactly how we've gotten our very worst Presidents.

I'm with you - it's about competency and nothing else. I don't like Hillary - and it has nothing to do with her sex, how she wears her hair or what she wears. I have brains and prefer my President to be qualified, competent and not a dictator-wannabe.
