Hear Hear. I Want A Leader, Not A Beer Buddy

Adam Kernan-Schloss, writing in Huff Post:

I understand all of that, but for the life of me, I don't get it when
people say they want someone just like them to be president.

The mayor of Scranton recently said about Obama: "They don't know him. Who'd you want to have a beer with? Who'd you leave your kids with?" Huh? I'm not looking for a beer buddy or a baby sitter. I'm looking for a president who knows a lot more than I do about how to get out of the mess we're in.


It's called leadership.

I have lots of friends I like to hang out and drink beer with. But no offense, I sure don't want them to be president.
