Letter to the editor: None of Democratic candidates should be president

After listening and talking to others about the Democratic people running for president, I came to the conclusion that most of them are idiots. And we thought we couldn’t get any worse.

Let’s take Bernie Sanders, for instance. He has three homes and lots of money (everyone would like to have that much). Do you think he would mortgage those three homes and take all his money and invest it in a business to create jobs for the people he wants to give everything free to? Do you think he could manage it? I don’t think so. I think he would fail because he has no idea of the what, how and why on how to manage it.

You can’t promise things; you need to make them happen. Have these people running produced anything worthwhile, either when they were in office or before? Tell us what you’re going to do to improve the country for us instead of blaming someone else.

These people shouldn’t be running for president, let alone be president. Oh wait — maybe they’re all Russian spies or something and we just don’t know it yet.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
