Michael D seeks second term
« on: July 10, 2018, 11:18:39 AM »
I see this oul lad wants a second term.
You'd think at his age he'd ride off into the sunset and draw his 4 or 5 pensions.
Hope someone stands against him.

I hope he stays on. He's a great ambassador for this country and cares deeply about our culture and language.A man of integrity.

Would agree. A change is not necessary when the incumbent is doing a decent job. Lots of other things to worry about.

A useless, pointless position which costs the taxpayer money every year. We sh1t the bed when we had the change to eliminate it. Shame on us.

Hope someone opposes him. For democracy's sake alone.

Itís largely ceremonial role, not sure why democracy needs to come into it?

Michael D is 77 (Sabina is 74). He will be 84 when he comes to the end of his second term. Not being disrespectful but there is a high chance of him dying in his second term.

Hard to know what his energy levels would be to do some of his duties as he goes into old old age over the next 7 years.

I hope someone else throws their hat in the ring. Somebody who is no an ex-taoiseach!

You have to be 35 to run for or become President. If there is a Age limit at one end. Why not at the other?

Imagine what would (rightly) happen if you suggested someone was an unsuitable candidate because of their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or handicap. Ageism - the invisible frontier for liberal democracy.
