Now you are President of the United States of America…

You become a virtual prisoner in the White House, unable even to walk across the street without a contingent of Secret Service agents and a gaggle of aides.

You will have to endure 24-hour scrutiny and criticism of your every word and action, surround yourself with aides planning tell-all memoirs and scheming among themselves for power, and work 12-hour days in which your schedule is planned almost down to the minute.

Expect a constant battle with a hostile news media and an opposition party dedicated to frustrating and impeding your every move, from your grand economic agenda to your lowest appointments.

Only difficult decisions reach your desk – the easy ones have all been answered at lower levels of your administration.

But you will have the chance to put your personal stamp on a country of 308 million people and indeed on the entire world.

You will shape its economy, culture and society, and win a chapter for yourself in the history books alongside George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and other American luminaries.

  1. “You become a virtual prisoner in the White House” – perhaps a slight exaggeration

    “…Expect a constant battle with a hostile news media..” – you sure about that?

    “…and an opposition party dedicated to frustrating and impeding your every move, from your grand economic agenda to your lowest appointments….” – that’s certainly the impression they like to give, but hasn’t most of the thinking public already wised up and recognised the false left – right paradigm for what it really is these days? (ie a scam)

    “… you will have the chance to put your personal stamp on a country of 308 million people and indeed on the entire world…..” – Unless, that is, you’re are just another puppet controlled by those that run wall street, as well as other corporate interests…

    “…..You will shape its economy, culture and society, and win a chapter for yourself in the history books alongside George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and other American luminaries….” – Most of whom also liked to indulge in the bit of child sacrifice ritual enactment (and god knows what else) ……while portraying themselves as wholesome, god fearing Christians to the public of course!
