Archive for the ‘Questions for Pres.’ Category

My Camera Editorial Advisory Board comment published on Sept. 13, 2008, in response to the Camera’s question: What questions would you personally like to ask the nominees for U.S. President? What about candidates for Vice President?

If given the opportunity, I’d ask the candidates for president and vice president a few questions: When should the U.S. go to war? How strong should our military be, and how would you assure that level of strength? What does the nation’s flag mean to you? How about the Pledge of Allegiance and “In God We Trust” on our money? Do you consider the building block of society the natural family? What ends would you go to protect it? What intimidates you? When do you cry and does anyone ever see you do it? Have you done anything illegal before?

I’d ask these questions because I am sure they are quite well-prepared to spout their views on the economy, energy solutions for our country, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

If I had a little more time, I’d ask the candidates to name 50 nice things about their opponent and 50 bad things about themselves. That would give me a better understanding about them and their willingness to reach out across the aisle.
