Let’s face it, to be the President of the United States–the richest, most powerful and potentially most dangerous country in the world–one must possess a rare set of skills and a level of knowledge that is beyond what any ‘average’ person could ever display.
I thought we learned this lesson when we elected George W. Bush president–twice. After all, he was likely one of the worst presidents we have ever had. Not only did he start a war with Iraq that turned out to be a huge mistake and which took the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent people and who was responsible for the safety of all U.S. citizens when the biggest terror attack in history occurred on U.S. soil, but to top it off, he closed out his term by almost collapsing the U.S. economy.
I have argued in the past, and continue to do so, that his lack of understanding about how the world works and why other countries hate us, has so much to do with why he failed so miserably. He gave the reins to Dick Cheney and that was because he knew he wasn’t up to the job and left his job up to someone else.
See a pattern here? Rich kid, born into an entitled life of money and fame without ever having to do anything, creates a monster who should never run anything, yet alone the most powerful government and economy in the world. Mic drop.
