US Politics

One of the many things about American politics that fascinates me, is the way you can hear two men ‘slug it out’ on a televised debate; hurl insults and general vitriol at each other and then discover they are both members of the same party.

After the debate – if you want to call it a debate – between Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, I am convinced that neither of them are fit to become President of the United States. With all the problems that beset America at the moment, they think it’s worth spending time attacking each others’ religious views. Huckabee is an ordained Baptist minister and Romney is a Mormon and the former suggested that Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers.

The level of debate in the UK is not very high at times, but at least it hasn’t sunk that low.
