Have you ever wondered how in the world a co-worker or a manager got his position after working closely with him and seeing he really is not a good fit? Well, the answer is simple: He was a good interviewer. He practiced answering anticipated interview questions; he practiced body language; he practiced communication skills.(Something a lot of us can do given the right tools and practice time and the right promoters.) What the problem was, the company did not finish the process. They did not do a background check. In today's economy, more and more companies are not only interviewing, but they are hiring companies to do extensive background checks on their candidates. This comes in the form of criminal checks, credit checks, employment and education history. Some of the questions that are asked of their references are, "Has this person ever shown a propensity for violence? Basically, do they have an anger issue? Now, we all have some kind of skeletons in our closet, but what we need to look at is to what degree are those indescretions. Are they mistakes made or are they part of one's character that continues to resurface? Basically, no matter how great someone's interview is, no matter how educated they may be, no matter how experienced, no company wants someone who is a hot head, someone who's character has led them down the wrong road for a lifetime because they kind of a person will destroy that company, or any other venue he is associated with. Voters need to not be so hasty to make their decision after the interview, but need to continue with their own background check and weigh the odds out. It may be that all of the candidates have some serious skeletons but to what degree and how freaquent are they displayed? Are they mistakes or character flaws? We can clean up mistakes, but you can't make a person change their character. Can't teach an old dog new tricks. Get outta the fight and pay attention. There is a lot of truth out there for those who really want to know it.

I doubt anyone would take the time to read because you were not smart enough to break your thoughts up into paragraphs.

If we looked over the backgrounds of some of Americans greatest leaders there would be a lot of skeletons in the closet.

I not comparing any of our candidates to the great leaders just making a statement. Washington, Jefferson, Kennedy, Clinton, and numerous others had skeletons in the closet. That didn't mean they couldn't run the country. We have to look at the overall picture. We want someone who isn't afraid to stand up for what he believes in, not just be a yes man.

Sounds like you did read my lengthy paragraph and it stung you. LOL
Is that the best you got -- you're not smart enough! LOL

Putting all laughs aside, don't be a lazy reader. I can't believe you would only read stuff that was formatted the way you feel it should be. LOL! Wow! Well, that tells me who you are voting for!!!

I agree that just because someone has skeletons in their closet doesn't mean that they cannot run for office. My point is, how bad are the skeletons? So we don't want yes men, so do we put in a man whose character can cause us harm? All I'm saying is if voters do their homework, they will find serious character issues that will definitely get into the way of good judgment down the road. While we may not want a yes man, we certainly do not want a man that is reckless. Just because one is not afraid to stand up for what he believes does not make him the best candidate. How does he handle himself when he makes the stand and it doesn't go his way? Just food for thought.

You missed the point again. I'm not talking about how one speaks eloquently. I'm talking about when the going gets tough, how does one handle himself. Track record is in writing on that. You're judging on what one says. I'm judging on what one does. Actions speak louder than words. Reckless behavior.

As someone who ran a business, if I were having a job interview set up for several applicants, I certainly would not hire a person if they didn't show up for the interview. Now, if they called and said they couldn't make it because they were in an accident, in the hospital, etc I would understand. I don't know of one company that would hire someone who ignored an invite for such an important job interview.

Especially for a job that the candidate asked for, it did not call him to file, it was his choice and then he snubbed the voters. Total disrespect to all those who showed up as well as those who watched the video and will vote in this years election.

The voters desrved to hear from all legitimate candidates, I guess they did!
