US needs a President who is in Tune with the World

When are we going to get a president who is in tune with what is happening around the world?. I hope the next president is someone who is brought up in the city and not these hillbillies we call presidents!

Although I dislike Bush and agree he isn't worth the 60 some million votes he "recieved"........ I am offended that you would think someone who isnt from the City can't be the figurehead of our government.

Clinton was born William Jefferson Blythe III in Hope, Arkansas(2000 pop. - 10,616)and raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas(2000 pop. - 35,750)

George Walker Bush was born in New Haven, Connecticut(2000 pop. - 123,626) but was raised in Midland, Texas(2000 pop. - 94,996) and Houston, Texas(2000 pop. - 1,9000,000)

Yup...It's a good thing the hillbilly is gone and a city-boy is in charge now...:2wave:

I agree that he is not exactly in tune with reality but I do not think it has anything to do with being brought up in a city or the country. He is a fake "hillbilly" that wears designer boots.

I guess when everyone get's off their ass to vote. And when a viable 3rd party rises to power. Good question, AMEN!
