Truly Baffling

Let's say the board of a giant corporation, such as Wal-Mart, hired as their CEO someone who has the brains, business acumen and speaking skills of your average redneck. How long do you think that corporation would stay in business?

Right. Not very long.

Yet the American people (mostly republicans) hired a president based on those very same "qualities." In fact, they hired him precisely because he has those "qualities." With our present CEO, I'm wondering just how long the United States will manage to stay in business.

How come Americans (mostly republicans) treat our nation with less respect than they treat their own businesses? I'm beginning to think that the average redneck American (mostly republicans) should never be allowed to sit on the board of any major corporation.

Well, except for Wal-Mart and all of the oil companies. Then it would be more than OK.
