Have you decided which presidential candidate you will vote for on election day? What qualities do you think make a good president? I examined each candidate according to my own criteria to make my decision.
First, a good president needs to care. He or she must listen to the people he or she serves. Second, a good president should be trustworthy. Someone you can count on to fulfill the duties of the job. Our president must be a good communicator, since they speak on behalf of our nation. America needs a strong leader who can take appropriate action if our country is threatened. Temperament is also important. Our president must be able to handle the pressures of the office under stress. As top executive, the president needs to choose competent people for his staff. He or she must be a good delegator of responsibility. Since our nation is head over heels in debt, we need a leader who will not waste taxpayer dollars. Finally, the best presidents are those who have overcome challenges in their past. They are fighters who do not give up easily.
After considering all of the above qualities, I believe my dog, Buddy, would make a terrific president.
Buddy cares. He listens to my problems after a bad day. He can be trusted to come when I call his name. Buddy is a great communicator. He whines when he’s sad and wags his tail like crazy when he’s happy.
Buddy barks whenever he feels threatened. He’s never bitten anyone, but he has the capability to. As far as temperament goes, he’s sweet and calm.
Buddy is a great delegator of responsibility. When he’s hungry, I feed him. I even pick up his poop for him.
Buddy would never put up with wasteful government spending. He makes sure every crumb I drop is put to good use.
As many of my friends know, Buddy has overcome challenges. In 2013 he suffered from paralysis in his hind legs due to a herniated disc. After surgery, and physical therapy he regained his ability to walk. Buddy is a fighter.
Buddy is my candidate for president. Oh, I forgot, he’s not on the ballot this year.
