Quote of the Day: Rick Santorum admits he isn’t qualified to be President.

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Finally, there’s something about which he and I agree.

Yesterday in Phoenix, at an event sponsored by the Maricopa County Republican Party, candidate for President Rick Santorum made the following statement:

“I am not a manager. I am not a visionary. I am a guy from a steel town who grew up understanding what made this country great.”

As for the last of these three sentences, the fact that he grew up in steel town is irrelevant and that he understands what made this country great is nothing special, nothing that he doesn’t have in common with many, many millions of Americans, including his competition.

More to the point, his first two sentences immediately and unequivocally disqualify him as a candidate. Mr. Santorum freely and, apparently, enthusiastically denies that he has the management skills and vision which are essential for effectively run our government as its Chief Executive Officer.

So would he please drop out already? If he has any sense of what running the government entails, of what we so desperately need in The White House, he needs to prove his unselfish commitment to our country and stop running for President. He needs to either endorse Mitt Romney who does have the requisite skill set or someone else more competent. It’s the patriotic thing for him to do.

As voters – I’m an independent, by the way, registered for neither party. – can any of us in our right minds honestly vote for a candidate who insists, who boasts, “I am not a manager. I am not a visionary.”? For exactly what position does Rick Santorum think he’s running?

Here’s the video of his statement from CNN Politics.
