Personal Management in Politics

 

This is a short post because I want you to think about this one, far beyond what I believe I can articulate, so I won’t try.

I am not a Republican or a Democrat, actually at present I am despondent about any party, or their choices to give us as choices… but that’s another story.

Here is the topic for you to pontificate:

“Newt Gingrich” is running for the Republican seat for President of the United States, a man that is morbidly obese. This personal issue alone raises a clear question of personal management, how can this not be a factor when choosing a leader of our nation. You can argue anything you want, but it will not change the reality that this man openly doesn’t manage his own life well or even in a healthy manner. Moving on to the last issue I will bring up on this post, the rest is up to you. Issue two: this guy is well known by both his party, and his opponents to be a man with a significant anger issue. A raging over eating older man in the oval office? Is this really a good idea?

Lastly is a person with a long history of politics in this day and age, with understanding of our recent and not so recent past, a good thing? Meaning, isn’t a strong resume one that shows proof of effective change? Shouldn’t we be looking for someone with new ideas, and the track record to prove the ability to both apply positive change as well as a consistent record of doing what they said they would?

Please think and then act.
