I just wanted to add a thought I had when I read Ha, Ha Rudy. I think the other candidates want to pretend that their family doesn’t matter. Not just Guiliani (but he’s the worst!) I heard McCain left his first wife because she was in a car accident and was really hurt and wasn’t pretty any more. I think the way a man treats his family can tell you alot about how he’ll treat other people and how his family acts tells you how other people will treat him. Well, clearly Guliani doesn’t respect any one and his family doesn’t respect him. His son said right in public he doesn’t have time for his dad!
I’ve got three older brothers and two older sisters. We all help our dad run his business. We hardly ever argue about anything and we’d never say sorry dad, we can’t help you! never mind right out in public! Because we respect him. Now what if Guliani got elected. I bet he’d be too busy dealing with all of his ex-wives and everything to do his job. And when he went to Congress for something they’d say Sorry Mr. President, we can’t help you because we don’t respect you! Nothing would get done!
And talking about divorce. Look at Guliani and McCain too. Guliani sure can’t make up his mind when it comes to being married! I wonder if he’s sure he wants to be president. Maybe he’d get to be president of the U.S. and decide he’d rather be president of Canada! Later America!
And then there’s McCain. His wife got hurt, he got another wife. What happens if there’s another terrorist attack or something else goes wrong? Would he just dump the whole country because it was too much trouble?
But thank goodness for Mr. Brownback! He’s only been married once so we know he doesn’t change his mind all of the time. He’s got three kids and he even adopted two more. That tells you he’s not selfish. You never hear his kids saying bad things about him, you never hear about them at all. I’m sure they might argue about little stuff, but they respect him so they keep it to themselves.
Sorry this is so long but I guess what I mean is this. Family does matter. A man who doesn’t stand by his family can’t stand by anyone. If his family doesn’t stand by him, no one else will want to either.
p.s. This is my first post here, please don’t be mean in the comments!
Update: Oh Puleeze, Mr. Gingrich. Even I know about Newt Gingrich. He divorced his first wife while she was sick with cancer so he could have another wedding and then changed his mind about that woman! Now I just read that he’s sorry and he’s asked God to forgive him (he doesn’t say exactly what for, maybe he’s not even thinking of his wife.) Well, that’s good that he’s sorry I guees. I guess it counts if you just say to God, Hey I’m sorry without a priest, but I think its about time America had a President that didn’t need to say how sorry he is for forgetting his wedding vows. Twice!
