Having hope does not also always make a President a Good Leader

Yesterday in Joplin MO, Obama made the following quote on hope-part of his 2008 Presidential Candidate theories called hope and change.

"We can define our own lives not by what happens to us, but by how we respond. We can choose to carry on, and make a difference in the world. And in doing so, we can make true what’s written in Scripture – that 'tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance, character, and character, hope.'"

Lots of people hope Obama is not re-elected.  Just because one has hope does not mean Obama is a good leader.  Once again, in the presidential race, we are all hoping we get better Presidential candidates that not only discuss the major issues with viable and real solutions-instead, we are getting a bunch of trivial nonsense that is a planned avoidance of discussing any solutions to any substantial issues by both. 

Romney gives few realistic details and Obama wants to do a division strategy on social issues pitting one group against another group in divisiveness purposely because he has no hope of solving the problems with jobs, the domestic infrastructure and the entire United States economy going forward.

If I have given up hope we are not going to get a good president in 2012, does that mean I am not a leader.  Hardly.  I am just pragmatic about the outcome of the 2012 presidential race being who can we tolerate as doing the least damage to our nation.  That is my hope. Maybe that should be Obama's slogan:

"We as a nation have some more tribulation to deal with.  As the current President, I have character but am lacking being a good leader.  Re-elect me.  I have hope I can change to being a good leader after I get done with all this campaigning, despite my past failures to be a good President."  Ending with "trust me".

Anyone that would like to post solutions to make America a better nation as a guest blog author; or has solutions to fix some of the problems in America, send me an essay to tscherer4@kc.rr.com. Also known as Thomas E. Scherer, your better candidate for United States Congress

Merely remember if I am elected to Congress, you the individual are my boss. PACS, Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups, sorry, but just go away. Americans are tired of the United PACS of America buying and corrupting our congressman and Senators. Our candidate is not for sale.
