Call me an insensitive pig. I don’t care.
Imagine seeing the above headline in the NY Times or the WP (the insensitive pig musing isn’t that to which I refer).
Picture George Bush making his case for war to the UN, (take camera two) and a tight shot of the President of the United States of America with tears running down his cheek.
I have nothing personal against George or Hillary. I’m neither endorsing nor berating any party. And I believe that the decision-making emotional side of women keeps love alive and many of the world populous from killing one another.
I also believe that the majority of people view perception as reality.
When it comes right down to it, I don’t want any world nation to view the United States as a country that cries, EVER.
Don’t get me wrong, crying is a good thing. There is a lot of stress in the ever-day lives of every-day people. I would expect to see a president or a presidential candidate cry at, say, the funeral of a loved one. But that’s about it.
I haven’t made my decision yet, and I probably won’t until the chad puncher (or stylus in SC) is in my hand. I will vote while preserving the responsibility of being informed voter. I will vote for whomever I believe will best serve our nation. I will not vote for someone who cannot keep emotionally in check when the cameras are rolling.
There is no crying in baseball.
