It’s the question on all our minds: what would Tim Tebow do worse, be an NFL quarterback or be an American politician? We may find out someday as Tebow stated in a recent interview that he hasn’t at all ruled out the possibility of one day stepping into the political arena and trying his hand at better the country in a more productive way than being a quarterback.
“I haven’t ruled it out.” Tebow said. “Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I’d love to do. I haven’t ruled out anything like that. It won’t be anytime soon in my future, but it’ll be something I’ll at least look at and consider one day.”
When you actually think about it, Tebow would clean up in a political race. He’s adored by literally millions of people, he appeals to the “American values”, he’s a devout Christian, young and he’s a generally likable guy. He’s everything that a majority of middle-class American’s hold dear and would see the scores of “Tebow-ites” not only rally behind him but grow immensely.
Plus, from a hardcore political standpoint, he’s easily controlled and could be steered with ease by a campaign manager. His status as a celebrity, as stated, adds to the dream candidate he makes and on top of it all he’s a master at giving persuasive and powerful speeches. How can we forget the speech the Florida Gators literally etched into stone on the side of building.
The question of whether Tebow is actually good for America is beyond the point as once you get into politics, it’s a popularity contest and there’s very little an opposing candidate can use to throw dirt on Tebow’s image. Who cares if he’s up on the global economic times or if he’s got the jist of the rights of the people he’d govern, he’s good looking and he’s a smooth talker — what more do American’s need?
Mayor Tebow. Governor Tebow. Senator Tebow. President Tebow. Get ready for it folks, if Ronald Reagan and The Terminator can do it, why not Tim Tebow?
