Presidential or Not Presidential

Posted by Thomas Ault on July 28, 2017 at 8:50 AM

During the last election phase in our great country, we endured one of the most foolish periods that I can remember with respect to our "hopeful" candidates for president, who spent most of their time fighting among themselves, rather than concentrating on what was important to us, the voters.

Along came a man who said what he thought, and for the most part, I agreed with what he thought. I didn't necessarily approve of his tactics, but he did say what a lot of us were thinking at the time. Then the time came to cast our votes, and cast them we did. Will the true outcome of that voting ever be knoiw? I doubt it! Never the less, that man became our president.

We have elected a president that I hoped we could all get behind. Granted he came on strong trying to implement his ideas, but having no regard for the system, he has failed in many ways. Have we all made a mistake? Could we have done better? Perhaps, but we will not know for some time if the choice was right or wrong, but in the meantime, it should be our duty to get behind the president and help him do what he said he was going to do.The question now is, can we?

Unfortunately, it is starting to appear that we may have elected a man who touts himself as a great salesman, but all I see so far is a very well to do man, who started out life with a lot of money, has never had to get down in the trenches and worry about the next day's meal. The problem with this type of person ( and don't get me wrong, there is more than one of them in our hiearchy of government) is he really has no concept of how the rest of us live! He (they) can read about it, can converse about it, can watch others suffer through it, but they have not lived it!

I could be wrong, but it seems to me a president should be a solid leader, a person who works the system well, speaks clearly to his constituents, and thinks before he tweets. (Should I have said speaks?) There are many people who "tweet" these days, who use Facebook as a means of communication, and have all but forgotten how to carry on a conversation without those devices. While our president appears to think that this new communiation is the answer, perhaps he should consider it is more like a cloak to hide behind.

I want to know where the man I voted for went! Is he hiding behind all of those relataives and friends he placed in various positions where they have no business being placed in, sitting in a corner with his cell phone tweeting his annoyance around the world? Isn't it time for him to stop his childish ways, grown up, and be a president?

He has to make a choice, to be presidential, or  to continue to be  "not presidential!" LIke had been said in the past, "If its too hot in the kitchen, get out!"
