Gerald Celente reacts to GOP debate

As America opens up more and more war fronts and the country’s economy goes kaput, the US should be seeking out presidential candidates that are prepared to leave the States out of a recession and into a new Golden Age. Right?

­If that’s the case, why were GOP nominees quizzed on their pizza preference at this week’s CNN debate?

“It’s a Cartoon News Network!” says Trends Research Institute Director Gerald Celente. While many tuned in on their television on Monday to learn about Republican frontrunner in the 2012 election, what they got, says Celente, was something disgraceful.

“Only somebody with a child’s mind would ask such mindless questions,” says Celente, who also publishes Trends Journal. “It’s the presidential reality show. . .we just saw it live.”

A Rasmussen poll released this week reveals that around a quarter of Americans are actually backing President Obama’s occupation in Libya. As Congress unleashes on the commander in chief on Tuesday for his breaching of the Constitution’s War Powers Resolution, America today should turn to real questions and their real answers. “Our soliders are getting killed!” says Celente. “And our little clown asks, ‘Who do you like: Leno or Conan?’ Come on!”

The chances of America leaving Libya anytime soon, says Celente, are slim and none. With the president’s opinion differing from that of the American people and the House, Celente says there are more important questions to be asked by CNN than “iPhone or Blackberry?”

Celente says that, with the exception on Ron Paul, the GOP leaders vying for nomination at the moment are “indistinguishable.”

Now, at least, Americans know their preference between soft drinks.
