Fred’s Criteria for Choosing the Next President


How to avoid another fiasco

If you guys were wise when you choose your presidents, you would look to their resumes. That’s what large successful corporations do when they hire their CEOs. You wouldn’t ask who you would like to have a beer with and you wouldn’t look for “rock star” qualities. You wouldn’t worry about their religion, sex, or race.

Instead, you would look for the person who had the most experience and who was the most successful at their previous jobs. You would look to their record and to their abilities. You would look for the person who had the very best qualifications.

Of all the announced candidates at this time, if that were the criteria you guys used, I believe Governor Bill Richardson would be the next president of the United States.

Just in case you missed it, one of my fine feathered friends gave your president a small gift yesterday. Check it out here Yeah, I’m laughing like a hyena too.

Have a great weekend!

Sign of Good Luck??? Naw - I don't think so. I think that sparrow had a little shock n' awe of it's own planned. Hehehehe.

Fred, you are a wise and well spoken cat whose advice I will accept anytime.

Just ANY sort of thought involved in the process would be an improvement over the way we've made the choice the last two times. Whether it's the "fear", "beer", or "rock star" criteria, none of those can hold a candle to just using your head!

Well, Fred, even using that criteria, I can't figure out why Bush was elected. There's nothing "rock star" about him (i.e., glamorous, sexy, talented, etc.), and he's the last person I'd want to have a beer with...I like drinking companions who can string a sentence together and have something interesting to say.

I think that having a fair election will help for starters... one where the person with the most votes gets the job. Then if they are terrible at the job, you fire them.

Hi Mr. Fred the cat. I'm Ellie Bean, and my Baba Diva Jood is typing for me but I want to tell you that I didn't know what kind of birdy that was that dropped its droppings on that bad man's sleeve so but if you know would you tell me because I want to give it a kiss. And my Baba says vote for Dennis K but I can't say his last name because it's too hard for me I'm only two.

Bye bye, I have to play now.

I like Bill Richardson too, fred. He's got a lot of the qualities I think would make him a fine president.

I think a bird should shit on Bush everyday. May this one be the first in a very long line.

Fred old boy, I owe you an apology for always nagging about your shut eyes! It's suddenly obvious to me, that you are not just sleeping but deeply in your thoughts and thus you came to the conclusion about Richardson being a tremendously qualified candidate for the presidency. He is impressive any way you slice it! And why is it, that one stupid bird knows better how to deal with this idiot president of yours than any of your elected representatives? If only you, Fred, and the bird would get along better, you could form a shadow cabinet.

Blueberry has a great thought; "having a fair election will help for starters... one where the person with the most votes gets the job. Then if they are terrible at the job, you fire them."

Now I can live with that!

Sex and race I have no problem with, but I so do not want another so called Christian in the White House.

You must be the wisest feline ever to have existed. (and that's some smart bird, too...excellent aim!!!!!)

Fred, we've been undone. A dang sparrow proved that birds are better at evaluating pResidents than cats. That sparrow did something Congress is afraid to do. He took a dump on Bush!

Hi Fred the Cat.
Yes, you are right. It would be smart if we used those qualifications as a way to assess the candidates. However, we have the media and groups like the swiftboaters who manage to raise their sharp yapping voices above the rest.
The bird did a good job. It would have been even greater had the poop hit the target in the face, but that the bird actually hit the target made for a laugh.

I'll probably be voting for Richardson in our Primary. Fred, you're a smart kitty.

I borrowed the link to the ABC video for Is America Burning. I would have preferred a seagull dive bombing his face but will take what I can get.

Thanks.

Fred, you have more wisdom between your furry ears than most humans have in their whole body. As for Mister Bush's passing present from that little house sparrow, ABC News called it "a sign of good luck". I'd say it was just the sparrow expressing his opinion of the crap being ejected from the president's mouth.

Ahhh, my dear, but the Corporate Board Members look to politicians who can frighten the proles into buying what they are selling in the morning and have a beer with at night.
