Almost naturally, and within the last decade, many Republican leaders have been condemned as laughable in the political realm due to their lack of “acceptable” orality. The 43rd president of the United States could easily agree that political tidiness has always played a major role in deciding who is fit (or no longer fit) for leadership in the bipolar nation called the United States of America. The populace wants someone to dazzle them with the flashiest words and bring false security through the vaguest ideas. This rock star position was gladly taken by none other than Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential elections. Sadly, over the past few years the public has grown weary and hesitant toward the upcoming elections because of recent misfortunes. Should someone else be elected? To what standard should they be judged? For starters, the characteristics of a leader must be the paramount standard of verdict; although Sarah Palin has been offensively troubled by the media on the simplest of matters, her personality and character is equivalent, if not more tolerable than President Obama’s. Once entirely understood, maybe the United States will alter its criteria.
Despite recent failures on a variety of political aspects, Obama has managed to maintain his “cool.” That would be much harder if it weren’t for occasionally guest starring on shows such as Ellen; he definitely has a niche for keeping up with the talk-shows and media. Once introduced, he isn’t afraid to show off his dance skills, but then quickly get to business. As a marvelous orator, complicated topics and issues can be dissolved for the common folk, thus, providing a trivial insight into his moral fiber. On top of it all, he has ten years experience in public office. Therefore, was he ready?
Barack Obama is a man of words, but inadequate in providing the right actions to back it up. Take for instance the recent crisis of when hundreds of Americans and other foreigners had to be evacuated from Libya as residents rose up over Moammar Gadhafi's iron-fisted rule. Nations such as China dispatched a navy ship to evacuate its citizens, but Obama insisted on using less direct means of transportation and sent over a ferry to avoid “treading water” with the Libyan government. This course of action shows his aversion to better provide for American citizens in desperation and reveals his personality. When dealing with the economy, he denied his own parties views on taxes and sided with Republicans, passed a stimulus bill that drastically worsened national debt, and a health bill that caused more impairment than benefits. Not all of his work is flawed; nevertheless, it does not fit the criteria of his election. These, among a plethora of other details (his 40% approval rating), proves his individuality and perspective on certain issues do not fit the high values of presidency.
Being the opposite of Barack Obama, Sarah Palin is a woman of acceptable action but more inane talk. Partly due to her...
