A Bold Move by Phelps - Lets See How it Works Out for Him

2/5/2009   Comment on This

By now, you’ve probably read or heard about all the heat coming down on gold medalist/ swimming star Michael Phelps. Sponsors are dropping him. The team is suspending him. From a dollars and sense standpoint, he may have really goofed – but it’s easy to understand why.

All around us are examples of successful Americans who have demonstrated that wrong is not necessarily wrong and if something is illegal, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can't do it.

  • We have a current President that discusses his teenage drug usage in his book
  • We have a new head of the treasury (and IRS) that didn’t pay all his taxes
  • We have a former Illinois Governor that claims he “did nothing wrong” and a former-former Governor that is doing time
  • We have a former President that didn’t inhale but did tap an intern for special services
  • We have a former New York Governor that had an appetite for high priced women
  • Potential Cabinet appointees are dropping out because of tax problems and ethics issues
  • The list goes on and on and on…

With so many wonderful examples for Michael Phelps to follow, it’s obvious he is just setting the stage for his entrance into politics.

Without some kind of scandal or illegal activity, he just won’t have the edge it takes to get noticed in our reality-TV society. This may be just what it takes to make him interesting enough for politics. Who wants to hear about a boring guy that works hard and wants to do good for the people and follows the rules and pays his taxes?

Welcome everyone… to the sad and bizarre reality we live in.

Am I wrong? Am I alone here? Tell me what you think
