The Problem With Being on a Mission From God

She's on a mission from God. Michelle Bachmann scares me. She really does. She scares me on many levels, not the least of which is that she has followers.

Whenever I hear some politician talk about being on such a mission, I'm reminded of the old Stephen King book, The Dead Zone. Pushing the button because of a higher calling. I have a real problem with a President being on such a mission. Beyond the obvious, it's an issue of accountability. I want a President to feel accountable deep down in their gut. I want them to feel the weight of their responsibility. I want them to believe that the buck stops with them. I want them to feel the burden of the consequences of their acts. They wanted the job, after all.
