The President of the United States is the most powerful job on Earth.  Therefore, I believe anyone vying for the job must possess bona fide experience reflecting complex executive skills, advanced levels of financial / economic literacy, diplomacy, audacity, confidence, fortitude and assertiveness.

 

So, 2012 Presidential candidates I ask you; what proven Chief Executive Officer experience do you have that qualifies you to become President of the United States?

Visual Poet Says:  Americans, avoid supporting 2012 Presidential Candidates with personality reeking of thinking errors.

The job of President of the United States requires a level headed, well adjusted, fair minded individual with advanced executive skills.  If the personality of any 2012 presidential candidates reeks of thinking errors, they do not qualify, so they must not apply.  These thinking errors should not be prominent in 2012 Presidential candidates and certainly must not find a home in the White House; Blaming, Radical Rhetoric, Feeling Special, Polarized Posturing, Deceiving, Locked and Loaded Loud-Mouthing, Sidestepping, Downplaying, Making Excuses, Jumping to Conclusions, Acting Helpless, Overreacting.  Americans must require, assure that only the best suited individuals seek and ultimately obtain the Commander-in-Chief seat.

My 2012 Presidential Campaign is irrefutably inspired by all Americans, United States Welfare, Economic Recovery, Homeland Security, National Debt, Jobs, Crumbling Infrastructure, Middle Class, Seniors, Baby Boomers, Military Service Members and Future Generations

Visual Poet Says:  Americans; let us pledge to hold each candidate accountable and do not overlook obvious red flags. 

I genuinely respect the office of the President of theUnited States.  Therefore, I, Visual Poet, Deborah Young launch 2012 Presidential Campaign to highlight the importance of the most powerful job in the world.  For a little over a decade, I have objectively honored the outgoing and incoming United States President with Presidential Tributes; Poetic Portraits and visual poems.  Therefore, I believe I am the ideal candidate to launch this unique 2012 Presidential Campaign.

My 2012 Presidential Campaign is not aimed at running for the office of President of theUnited States.  Nor is the 2012 presidential campaign geared to discredit or promote candidates of any political party.  Instead, my 2012 Presidential Campaign is designed to encourage Americans to make informed decisions when voting in 2012.  For, theUnited Statesrequires a candidate with the right stuff to effectively address current issues; economic recovery, the national debt, jobs, Medicare, Social Security, our crumbling infrastructure, etc., etc., etc.   

It is obvious that the 2012 presidential candidates are gearing up for a fierce battle for the Whitehouse.  So, I encourage all Americans to do something different; avoid accepting the promises of candidates and photo opts as the makings of a great leader. 

Americans; I implore you to take time to research, listen attentively and pray earnestly before electing the next President of the United States; be it a Democrat or Republican.

Visual Poet Says: “2012 Presidential candidates consider the President of the United States job description; if you do not qualify, do not, apply”.

Yes, 2012 Presidential candidates are applying for the most powerful job on Earth.  But, do their résumés reflect proven chief officer experience Americans can depend upon.  It would be neglectful if we fail to require written, detailed, factual résumés with bona fide references.  Americans must demand résumés that indicate genuine jobs held by 2012 Presidential candidates with proficient, complex executive skills and advanced levels of financial and economic literacy.  Certainly, 2012 Presidential candidates must have résumés that reflect ingenious diplomacy, fortitude and amiable assertiveness, etc. 

Consider this; in the real world, one cannot apply for demanding jobs without providing a history of hands on experience, references, adhere to a drug screen and agree to extensive background checks.  One cannot obtain a job by spouting promises and memorable phrases, posturing, smiling and kissing babies.  If the job of President of the United States is taken seriously; authentic experience will dictate rather than bulging treasure chests of money.  Americans must use discretion and only accept résumés of 2012 Presidential candidates indicative of a future Commander-in-Chief.

Visual Poet Says:  As I launch my 2012 Presidential Campaign; Visual Poet Says series, I remind all Americans to be leery of campaign slogans.  For, carefully crafted rhetoric has never been an indicator of an effective, decisive President of the United States, Commander-in-Chief. 

Tick-tock, tick-tock

Listen to the clock

Time will forever and always reveal it all

No matter attempts to stall

Revelation is destined to billow tall

Tick-tock, tick-tock

Listen to the clock

If ears and hearts are positioned to accept what is true

Then, one can embrace reality’s overview

When time is used wisely, no one will be lead astray

And, each will be able to anticipate a brighter day
