    How’s That Gravitas Workin’ For Ya?

    How’s That Gravitas Workin’ For Ya?

    Remember, when you hear about how important it is that the next Republican nominee for President have “gravitas,” the following have been designed by people with gravitas:

    • The TSA’s scanning and groping system.
    • Obamacare.
    • Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the mortgage bubble.
    • Our tax code.
    • Our federal and state budget deficits.
    • Our immigration system.
    • (feel free to add more in the comments)

    We need gravitas, because gravitas has worked so well so far.

    Mashed potatoes: they need gravitas. Also, butter.

    Agreed, but it does not follow that a lack of gravitas is desirable in a Presidential candidate.

    Gravitas, a positive for the left, reminds me of another word used by the right – in the same fashion: pragmatic.Dan

    'Pragmatic' is no more than the word 'practical' with (you guessed it!) gravitas.

    What is practical depends upon what one seeks to practice.-Ayn Rand

    "…effectively lead the nation?"
    If you believe that such a creature exists then perhaps you should excuse yourself from the talent pool.

    The Gordian knot created by all the "gravitas" needs the Alexanderian solution.
