A Crooked Past Not Forgotten.

Never mind running for Irish president, if Fianna Fail even re-accept Mr Albert Ahern back into their ranks, it says a lot about how little they might have changed from their ways of past member acts of corruption.
.
The news that the crooked shyster is again even thinking of possible running for president of Ireland, really exposes how little he thinks of Ireland’s people.
.
Treating us all as completely stupid and forgetful – the latter being ironic as Mr Ahern ‘forgot’ too many times how he conducted himself while was being given financial backhanders during his elected office period – Mr Ahern is hoping that the people he clearly thinks is stupid enough, will in enough numbers, actually put his crooked ass into a presidential seat!
.
Should Fianna Fail later even dream of running this crooked unfunny clown, which is a slight possibility as there is an inner group looking for supporting number ot have him re-accepted back into the party as a first step to the presidency, it will again reminder expose to the nation just how rotten Fianna Fail was in the past and remains so presently.
.
Part of myself wants to see Mr Ahern running for the position of president – as it will act as a needed reminder of the rotten we have in political circles. Part of myself however also remembers that the office of President should be treated with respect and dignity as for one reason alone, too many have historically fought and died so that it might even exist within a self-governing independent Ireland.
.
Please note also. I refuse of call Mr Ahern by the name of “Bertie”. The use of the latter while more commonly name attached to him, infers a great degree of friendliness and jovial familiarity.
.
The truth is however that Mr Ahern is a crook – one that I had the unfortunate occasion to run into while I was past operating in political activity – and nothing will ever convince myself that he is otherwise.
.
He might be many complex things – but he also took money underhand while in elected office (just like one present Mr Lowry) and acted very suspiciously in other ways while holding a number of elected positions.
.
The notion that this crook might even think he use the Office of the President as something to use for self-PR, despite many knowing his colourful past, says a lot about the sick quality of this crooked character.
.
Mr Ahern’s portrait picture hanging in the Dail, disgracing that building and all those that past fought and died so that it might even exist. His Dail portrait hangs alongside other better persons. I suspect many would turn in their grave at the notion that he is placed up with them! We do them and many past others a disservice by allowing his portrait to continue even Dail existing.

Fianna Fail – if they have ANY decency – need to come out RIGHT NOW and state they will never support this man ever again! A clear cut statement is required. Will it ever happen? No. They don’t have the guts. It’s that simple – and that too, still says a lot about Fianna Fail even today!
.
Mr Ahern acted crookedly while holding office. Should he even remotely gain the opportunity to run for president, you can be damn sure this person will openly actively oppose him and the party that might support his attempt.
.
I would do so out of respect for our right to an honest democratic system and respect for those that have long struggled for it to come into existence.
