The Next President

I pity the poor guy who is unfortunate enough to win the presidential race this year.  There are so many problems facing our country that it will be impossible for the next president to be fairly measured by his efforts as opposed to events and problems caused by others.  In order to have a successful term, the next president must communicate, communicate and communicate some more.  Politicians are not trained in economic theory.  Politicains are not trained to be a quick study.  Politicians are ill suited to demand performance as opposed to loyalty from those around them.  What invariably happens is that the “coach is measured by the team.”  If America happens to experience good times, whomever is president gets all the credit.  If America struggles, the president is blamed.  Go team.  Let’s hope America wins more of these battles than it loses over the next four years.
