Dear Presidential Hopefuls

Dear presidential hopefuls,

Please do your jobs – you know, the ones you got as a result of the last election.  Here’s a news flash: the presidential election isn’t until November – next November!  For the time being, I’m paying you to represent me as Senator or whatever your current role is, not to be making fund-raising appearances or generally neglecting your duties.  Furthermore, I’m not interested in what you have to say right now, because it will likely change 3 times between now and the actual election, which, let’s review, is more than a year and half away.  Please just shut up and do your actual jobs for the next year and maybe I’ll be interested in what you have to say next summer.


A voter/tax-payer/someone who is not fooled by the media into thinking that the 2008 election is a “news item” right now

    Um given how horrible a job Americans have done at picking a president in the last two elections maybe more time and exposure is needed.

    It’s the economy, stupid! (Oh, wait, it’s not 1992 anymore.) Are you better off now than you were four years ago? (1980, Ronald Reagan).

    I wonder what it will be this time around, but I am agreed that I will respect those who decided to take responsibility for the full term of duty they signed up for when WE the people elected them. (Well, not we in the personal sense, since there is no PA Presidential candidate, but in the global sense of WE…)

    What frustrates me most about this whole situation is this: If I had a job and spent more than half of my work hours looking for a new job, I would get fired in less than a week. Politicians, on the other hand, do not get fired even if they spend all their time on the campaign trail and never show up on Capitol Hill. The worst that can happen to them is that they don’t get re-elected to their office in the next election; however, this is not a real punishment because they won’t even be running for that office again. Responsible politicians who are serious about running for another office should resign from their current position in order to focus on campaigning. There are a few examples of people who have done this; unfortunately, there are numerous examples of people who have not.
