If your favorite giant bomber were to run for president like Jeff, Ryan or another staff member, but they were running on the opposing political party would you still vote for them?
I don't care about the Political party nonsense in the slightest. That's a suckers game sold to sheeple. Neither party cares a whit about the American people or what's in the country's best interests.
But the power, authority and responsibility of the Presidency is no joke. And frankly none of the Bombcrew despite being awesome duders is remotely qualified to be POTUS.
Look, I like them a lot, I give them money every year because I like them, but I wouldn't want them running a country. Vinny's a great video producer, but I don't think those skills come in handy when dealing with Iran over nuclear weapons. Jeff's funny as all hell, but jokes aren't going to solve the problem with Social Security.
This is one of the problems with America - the desire to elect people "like them", people they can "have a beer with", people who aren't "elite". That is stupid - you want the MOST ELITE people to run a nation! I don't want my friends to run a country, I want the smartest damn person I can find to run a country. I don't want someone like me to be President or Prime Minister - I want someone LEAGUES ahead of me to be President or Prime Minister. I want someone so smart, so accomplished, so much better that compared to them I look like crap, to run my nation. I want the best and the brightest, and I'm not nearly arrogant enough to assume that I am the best or the brightest, or that the best and the brightest would be like me or my friends.
