T.J. O'Hara is a political commentator, author and speaker who writes a recurring column for the Communities of The Washington Times ("A President for the People"). In 2012, he was the leading independent candidate for the Office of President of the United States, garnering the Whig Party's first presidential endorsement since the 1850s along the way.
T.J. also achieved the distinction of being named the first "Virtual" President of the United States by the web-based "We Want You" poll that measured the merit of the candidates' solutions as opposed to their ability to raise and spend money. He dominated the poll by receiving 77.91% of the vote as compared to President Obama's 5.81% and Mitt Romney's 5.23% (who finished the second and third, respectively).
Prior to entering the political arena, T.J. specialized in facilitating corporate turnarounds for over 25 years. Now, he's decided to turnaround the entire country. Using a unique blend of history and humor, he challenges the very underpinnings of Party politics...exposing its inherent biases and its obsession with capturing votes...all delivered through his satirical alter ego, the Common Sense Czar. No Party is immune from the sting of the Common Sense Czar's acerbic wit, and you'll find yourself helplessly smiling at his musings ... even if it's your Party's turn to be the focus of his attention.
