THE ELECTION IS OVER BUT POLITICKING STILL GOES ON, heard Arthur Schlesinger (Remember him?) propose a move to abolish the office of Vice President. He thinks this move will gain ground after the Inauguration of Vice President Dan Quayle. Mr. Schlesinger feels that the office of Vice President makes people less prepared to be President than they might have been before being elected to that office.
He suggests that without a Vice President then if a President were killed in office, a special election could be held to once more fill that office. MY! MY! how convenient for the political party in power in the House of Representatives, for the Speaker would of course fill the office of President, so really no hurry for the election. Then the head of the Senate would be next in line so of course in this case then the Legislative body could also control the executive branch of the government.
The idea of Dan Quayle being Vice President sure disturbs those old builders of what they thought of as Camelot. There is also much criticism of Barbara Bush, she must wear different clothes, and colour her hair, and this idea of being seen so often with the grandkids must stop. Did you know that on vacation when the kids and grand-kids come to visit, that the grand-kids are allowed to come and jump in bed with Barbara and George. MY! that isn’t done in America anymore. This family image has changed, or has it???
