BASICS: PRESIDENTIAL POWER | nationalsalvation.net

Dave

It frightened me the other day to hear Bush refer to the "psychological distress" of the American people. Presidents have referred to the public's distress before, but in this context it is as ominous as anything could be.

You know that such a statement coming from the mouth of a President is a sign of political doom.

ME:

Dave, President Carter already talked about the "malaise of the American people."

Oops! I just reminded myself that Carter is not the President anymore, the man who holds all the Power and whose every word is critical.

I always DID get Carter mixed up with the other Democrat with the Southern accent.

When that Monika Lewinsky thing hit the papers ...

Oops! I just remembered that Clinton isn't president any more either.

The best bet is one of the Bushes.

I am merely jesting with you, of course.

I KNOW that every word that issues from the White House is critical in understanding the Great Conspiracies that put people at the center of power in the White House. I pay strict attention to every word that President Ford utters.
