Starbucks billionaire Howard Schultz suspended his longshot presidential campaign on Wednesday — saying he had a sore back and needed time to get better.

“While I was in Arizona, I unfortunately experienced acute back pain that required me to cut my travels short,” he wrote.

“Over the following two months, I underwent three separate back surgeries. Today, I am feeling much better, and my doctors foresee a full recovery so long as I rest and rehabilitate. I have decided to take the summer to do just that.”

  1. What a stinking loser. I mean seriously? If not for his unknown back pain he WOULD of run for President??? It’s only because of that darn back pain that he had to suspend his highness’ entry into the Presidential race? Does he truly think the peasants are that stupid? This is why I hate elitists, regardless of their Party affiliation. They are obsessed with themselves. They truly believe that the Nation is just waiting with baited breath for them to make their anticipated decision. We just couldn’t sleep at night aggravating over what the decision was going to be. Such high drama. Such anxiety.
