Bush a bad CEO

It seems to me that the office of the President of the United States bears some resemblance to that of a CEO of a major corporation. Both are responsible for the wellness of their company (i.e. state), their employees (i.e. citizens) and profitability (i.e. avoiding bankruptcy). And when corporations go down the road to failure, such as was the case of IBM some years ago, they look for a new CEO. Such was the case of Louis Gerstner, who rescued IBM, turned it around and brought it back in a big way.

Applying the same logic to the upcoming presidential election, there should be no argument that our present leader, President Bush, has led this nation to the brink of disaster ” and I don’t have to enumerate the details. So, for no other reason, it seems imperative that President Bush should not be re-elected for another disastrous four years, but needs to be replaced by a new leader. Mr. Kerry may not have a very charismatic personality, but I believe that at this time almost anyone other than Mr. Bush is capable of doing a better job.
