We read a few objections to comparing those Republicans who will try for the GOP nomination to “clowns tumbling out of a clown car.” I must agree that this is an unfair comparison and herewith apologize to P.T. Barnum and Ringling Bros.
Clowns are meant to make people happy with their antics. This sad crew does not even make me smile. They are still criticizing and complaining about President Barack Obama. It sounds like they are angry that they could not meet their oft-stated goal to kick him out of the White House. Apparently, no one has told them he isn’t running.
So far, they have not addressed their arguments with the declared Democratic candidates. We have no idea what their policies might be in a job that is the most challenging one in the world. Individually and as a group, there is no evidence they have the competence to address the enormity of the position. The clown metaphor is undeserved but we might buy “the blind leading the blind.”
