The political game is screwed up.

That Supreme Court ruling allowing unlimited campaign money was a big one.  I don't think we really noticed it at the time cuz were to pre-occupied with bashing Obama but that was a big one.

Marketing is powerful and money = marketing.

If ask me............ the most important thing a Prez does is get involved with Supreme Court decisions.

Everything else is minor compared to that.

Do you consider the current state of the stock market to be an indication of the worst president ever?

why don't we vote for supreme court justices?  or is a that a part of checks and balances in terms of the executive over the judicial branch?

article 2 section 2

Impeachment.

concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

depends

who benefits from high stock valuations (hyper devalued dollars)


Odd that the dems pretend to champion and help the little guy, and then also pat themselves on the back for making everything more expensive, while at the same time rah rah'ing about affordability.  Do the little guys wages increase under dem rule?

When i gauge a presidency, i favor lower prices and higher wages, but that's just me. I know i have the back-asswards view on affordability

I agree with this.

And I don't think the President should be judged on the state of the stock market, for many reasons (the most being the very small number of people that actually make the market go).

But there is a very good reason why I asked Esplanade this question and I am presuming he is avoiding a response.
