    I am deeply distressed concerning the 2012 election. When I think about the trouble that is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East (not to mention the U.S. economy) we seriously should demand a superior leader. I’m convinced that Barack Obama or any of the Republican candidates so far have the experience or skills it takes to get the job done the way it needs to be accomplished. Being president of the U.S. is an immensely challenging job. Do you think there is any man or woman out there with the experience, skill, and moral courage to do the job?
