So How Well Will Your Guy Execute the Oath of POTUS

Any analysis of how well a president has done or is expected to do in office should begin with the following:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Whether the guy ate dog as a kid or tied his dog to the roof of a car is not important. His wealth should have no bearing on his ability to execute his oath. We shouldn’t care if his wife is beautiful (yes, it took all I could to admit that one), nor should we care that his wife never filled out a W-4 in her adult life.

We shouldn’t care if he is an uptight white guy who is eligible for AARP and social security. We definitely shouldn’t be about re-electing him because the brother has swag (even though ten percent of black people don’t think Obama is black …go figure)

The issue is, has he, or does he have the ability to execute the oath of office.

If you can make a reasoned argument one way or the other, you’ve earned access to the ballot box. If not, stay home.
