Seventh grader not impressed

When candidates have little or no knowledge of the facts and issues of our country it seems obvious they’re running for office not for what they can do for our country, but for what the presidency can do for them. When I say this, I am speaking of both sides of our government. After watching elections year after year I have noticed the things some presidential candidates have said. A few weeks ago, I witnessed Herman Cain not have a word to say about Libya when asked. Being in seventh grade, if there is one thing I know, it’s that if you were to be president, foreign policies might be important. To be truthful, I am content with Obama but would be OK with any of the other candidates. My wish is that we can elect (or keep) a president that will set us on the right track.
