Bill Richardson, & steak vs sizzle
I have seen the MSM focus on H Clinton's talking point that she has more relevant work experience than Obama.
Meanwhile, Bill Richardson dropped out of the Presidential race today.
The fact is H Clinton & Obama’s experience is at a similar level, in terms of ACTUALLY HOLDING OFFICE OR BEING THE LEADER/CEO OF AN ORGANIZATION. H Clinton has great experience at campaigning, but I don’t value this in terms of ACTUALLY DOING THE PRESIDENT job. Exhibit #4080 Gee Dubbz Bush 43.
The fact is that Bill Richardson in relevant work experience PWNS H Clinton, Obama, & the whole field of either party:
1 Governor of NM
2 US House of Reps
3 Energy secretary under B Clinton. Energy is KINDA IMPORTANT giving possible global warming & peak oil crisis
4 foreign policy diplomat/negotiator with N Korea, Cuba, etc. A diplomat as President would be a great change from the bitchmade chickenhawk neo-clown war mongerers we have now with G Dubbz
5 Uniquely qualified to deal with US-MEX relations & illegal immigration, as Gov of border state, fluent in Spanish, & having grown up for some years in Mexico City.
Per Thom Hartmann (don’t sleep, dude is the truth), the FACT is 93% of Americans vote on “emotion”/”feeling about the candidate”. I guess I’m one of the few 7% that vote on policy & work experience. Richardson got shyted on as a non-charismatic fat guy.
SMH at 93% of my fellow Americans, who take the sizzle over the steak.
This is the same dynamic in quasi-gay rap fans who value “swagger” over lyricism/flow/voice, & take a mediocre media-hyped douche-bag like Lil Wang over true unique talented MCs like Phonte or Black Thought.
This is the same dynamic as the society that values sales & marketing “PowerPoint engineers” over REAL ENGINEERS & SCIENTISTS that through creations in information technology, energy technology, genomics/pharma, etc drive the majority of the productivity & innovation in our economy.
Wake up America, time to value the steak over the sizzle.
