I would still prefer to have a competent businessman

aargh! Businessmen make the worst presidents. Especially those from private companies like Trumpsky and W.

W because his father/father's friends set him up in business and bailed him out of every mistake. He followed advisors like Cheney or went with "his gut"--which was as ignorant as his brain.

Trumpsky because he's had decades of doing whatever he wanted without constraint, including skirting the law and cheating contractors--and the American taxpayer bailed him out of most mistakes (he did have to liquidate his fake charity and he pay compensation to victims of the Trump University scam).

Republicans are too wing-nutty and easily manipulated these days to go for a competent businessman like Huntsman. They seem to prefer easily manipulated leaders like Reagan and W, and now easily manipulated, greedy grifters like Trump.
