Centrist needed for president

The recent nuclear deal with Iran and concurrent political furor pretty much cement this president’s legacy as The Great Divider. Whatever issue he promotes, whether it be health insurance, race relations, energy resources, immigration reform, criminal justice, international relations, the IRS, worker wages and benefits, the result is always the same: further polarization of American society.

It’s hard to fathom how a Muslim theocracy responsible for the deaths and injuries of American soldiers caused by improvised explosive devices, with a consistent 40-year track record of enhancing terrorism (Hezbollah, Hamas), publicly threatening the United States, Europe and Israel, and suppressing democracy at home, can be expected to play nice now with the West.

Furthermore, let’s not forget Iran’s illegal and barbaric assault on our embassy and the subsequent hostage crisis. Has anyone read a convincing military or political analysis confirming the trustworthiness of the mullahs? No deal and continued economic pressure are better options than a bad deal supported by the United Nations Security Council, Russia and China.

Our country would best benefit from a centrist-based leadership and not another left-leaning, career politician/lawyer coming around the bend in the next election.
