Let's face it. Romney isn't exciting anyone. Newt excels at irritating us. Santorum confuses us. Ron Paul is ignored.
While each has some strong points about them, none of them are what we need.
A good president appoints the right people, which is why our present Chosen One is so weak and ineffective.
But he still hasn't figured out that he's no longer community organizing. Or is he?
What the winning GOP candidate needs is to tell America, and the world, who his Cabinet will be. Do that, and the Dems do not stand a chance.
With no further adieu, here is my proposal for a landslide winning Dream Team 2013 Cabinet. Some departments would be combined, others outright eliminated--beginning with the Department of Homeland Security (moved under the Attorney General's responsibility), Housing (totally eliminated), Health and Human Services (moved under Treasury) and Interior--give the parks back to the States.
Attorney General: Ron Paul.
Paul would put an end to much of the BS presently carried out by today's law enforcement such as no-knock raids, random checkpoints for motorists, and gross abuse of authority under color of law. When it comes to the law, you cannot go wrong by strictly following our Constitution--and that is what we desperately need.
Secretary of Treasury: Michele Bachmann.
Herman Cain, Secretary of Commerce.
Secretary of Defense and Veterans Affairs: Congressman Alan West.
Secretary of Education and Labor: Mark Levin.
I propose combining Education with Labor because I see the two as inter-related. Education results in a smarter, better, more affluent labor force and a better product for America. To that end, Secretary Levin would work closely with Secretary Cain.
Levin has no fear of the NEA or any other teachers' unions, is not afraid to step on toes, and doesn't give a damn what the media thinks of him. Give him Education with the instructions of cleaning house, fixing the problem.
Secretary of Agriculture and Energy: Rick Perry.
Secretary of Transportation: Chesley Sully Sullenberger.
Sully is also co-chair of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) Young Eagles program which provides first time small airplane rides to youngsters. Sully is a military veteran and airline captain who has traveled all over the U.S. and the world. Unlike our past appointed SecTransportation jesters, Sully did the driving rather than the riding. He knows what is needed to traverse America, North America and the world. He knows what gets in the way and what helps. Sign him up.
Chief of Staff: Sarah Palin.
