Functions more like a CEO of a large corporation?

There certainly are strong similarities - though I'm not sure what that means. It certainly doesn't necessarily imply that the federal government should be run like a corporation (see the Romney platform). It more likely means that the selection of our top executive should be reformed further away from the corporate model, and the President would then not be forced into behaving purely like a CEO.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Here's how the clown car's passenger list looks right now.

1. Jeb Bush
2. Marco Rubio
3. Rand Paul
4. Scott Walker
5. Chris Christie
6. John Kasich
7. Mike Huckabee
8. Ted Cruz
9. Bobby Jindal
10. Paul Ryan

I don't know much about John Kasich, but the others sure look like losers. Marco Rubio in second? Heck, he's still wet behind his political ears.
