Next week is the next GOP presidential primary debate, on Tuesday in Milwaukee, hosted by Fox Business News. So here we are going into the weekend prior to this fourth GOP debate, and what are we all talking about?
As Written By Allen B. West:
Is it the recently released October jobs numbers that says our unemployment rate is 5 percent? Are we talking about the bomb that was planted on the Russian airliner that crashed in the Sinai Peninsula? Are we discussing President Obama’s cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline saying it will have no credible impact on our economy? Are we talking about the third open enrollment season for Obamacare and the insurance premium rate increases? Or are we talking about President Obama’s threat to use an executive order to shut down Guantanamo Bay?
We are heading into the weekend talking about Donald Trump being on Saturday Night Live. We are being inundated by a back-and-forth about Dr. Ben Carsonsupposedly being offered a scholarship to attend West Point — you only receive an appointment to the Service Academies. And the media spent a whole day on candidate Carly Fiorina being on The View — she performed well, but that should not be a national focus.
Ladies and gents, this is precisely why our nation is suffering. The media does a darn fine job of not addressing the issues that are threatening the Republic. Instead it is about distractions.
This is what distresses me more than anything: our election cycle for president resembles a reality TV show rather than a test of statesmanship and leadership to guide this country out of the morass in which we find ourselves.
