These two terms have really changed how I think about the potus. The U.S. has done many terrible things while Obama has been president. If it were George W Bush, I would easily have believed these things were the president’s will and command. I don’t think it is Obama’s will. And this kinda reinforces that belief. :/
It’s sad that we finally get a president who’s a decent human being, and he’s not empowered enough (imo).
I’m not sure who rules the U.S.. Some group of people, or some person, is probably leading. But it isn’t him. I think the image of a shadowy council of old white men sitting around table, lit from above, in a dark room, is probably not too far off. “So you said you wanted to close Guantanamo. That’s a really nice thought. Sorry to disappoint, and sorry for making you look like a liar to the American people… but we can’t let that happen.”(via monarch-beta)
