JOE FOR PRESIDENT!

JOE FOR PRESIDENT!
A whole lot of people have a big problem with Hillary, its a trust and integrity thing.  A whole lot of people have a big problem with Trump, he does say a lot of un-Presidential things. Perhaps, even though there is a Cranky family reason for extremely disliking The Vice President, it may finally be time for Joe for President.

Anyway, I am getting lazy and so here is another cranky re-run from May 2014

In 235 years this great country has had 44 Presidents.  It was considered a big step forward for the US to have elected a Black President in 2008.  Now many people are calling for our country to elect for the first time, a woman president.  While I fully understand that sentiment, I cannot support it; not while an even greater diversity injustice stands unresolved.

Of all our 44 presidents, there has not been one Joe.  There have been a bunch of Williams, at least three Georges, a mess of James’s and a slew of Johns, but not a single Joe.

Joe.  Good old Joe.  One of the most common and popular names since Jesus had a daddy, and not a single President of the United States has been named Joe.

I would never have guessed the people of the United States would have a president named Martin before a Joe, but that is the case.  In my wildest dreams I could not imagine a president named Zachary, but yes that did come to pass.  A Millard president before a Joe?  Preposterous; and yet it is true.  Franklin…not too uncommon, but we have had two presidents named Franklin and no Joes!

Abraham is not that strange a name, but except for Vigoda and Lincoln I can’t name anyone.  There are lots of Joe's, what's up with that?

Ulysses?  Wasn’t that a play?  There is no play named Joe, at least give us a president.

Rutherford…RUTHERFORD…come on I’ve never met a Rutherford and yet we have had a Rutherford as president, and still no Joe.

Chester.  I’ve known a few Chester’s.  One was a dog.  How is it we had a president named Chester and no Joe?

Grover; please;  GROVER and no Joe?  It boggles the mind.

I wonder what the Vegas odds in 1789 would have been for if we would elect a president Joe before a Woodrow, a Calvin, or a Herbert.  Pretty damn high I’d wager.  I lose. Still no Joe!

I’ve known three Dwight’s in my life, and one of them was president.  Lynden before Joe, you have to be kidding, and don’t even get me started on Barack.  How could we possibly have a president named Barack before one named Joe?  Come on now, Barack is not even a real name!

Enough of this nonsense, our next president should be named Joe.  End the discrimination now.  Right the injustice now.

It's not like Joe's can't lead.  Football quarterbacks Joe Montana, Joe Theisman, Joe Flacco, and Joe Namath proved that they can.  Wasn't Joe Walsh a lead singer? Joe's can fight, Joe Lewis and Joe Frasier could beat anyone. 

Then there is Joe Stalin...OK, not so good, but still... 

We need a president named Joe.  Hey, it could be a woman.  What ever happened to Joey Heatherton?  She was hot.  I could vote for her.
  Joey…Joe…close enough.

  3. I wouldn't want to be President, not of a country, not of a committee. Too much work involved. I'd never get any reading or lazing about done.

  4. I'm a president and hubby was a Joe. Methinks we would have made a great team. I think Joey Heatherton would have been favourite though!

  5. Sure, how about Joe HAGY? I'd much prefer you to anyone inside the Washington beltway right now. 'Course, I'd prefer that dog named Joe you mentioned, too. ;)

    1. If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve...I will take the pension and free rides on AF1.

  6. You have a valid point here. I think we should take to the streets and protest this. Why not.

    Have a fabulous day Joe. ☺

  7. Hmmm. Uncle Joe for President! Kinda sticks with the guy huh? I never really knew how to take him as VP because in the early years he acted like that kind of like that freaky uncle everyone has. It was after his interview with Parent's Magazine when he told them, "Buy a shotgun" story that I knew he was a man I could get behind. :) But the Jon Stewart held the Old Fashioned Poor Off between Joe and Hilary. http://www.cc.com/video-clips/xyf39z/the-daily-show-with-jon-stewart-poor-off

  8. Now that I think about it, there hasn't been a President Stephen, either.

  11. If you can find a qualified Joe, i'll vote for him!

  12. I can see the 4" headline in the National Enquirer now: "President called jerk by his wife at news conference".
    Well, I'd take you over Trump any day, if that's a recommendation.
