“The Elite Don’t Need A President With A Pulse Says Political Analyst”
This is true, and we already have experience.
George Bush served for 8 years, but he was in charge of virtually nothing.
Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld ran the show.
Bush just signed where he was directed to sign and gave the speeches he was asked to give.
The flim-flam was obvious to any good observer. Bush totally lacked effective intelligence and even the ability to articulate clearly. He was a life-long ne’er-do-well and had not a genuine success of any kind on his own in his entire life. He was happy to be propped up and put on display as though he had finally succeeded at something.
Cheney and, to a slightly lesser degree, Rumsfeld were super-driving, ambitious men of considerable intelligence with glandular views of how things should be ordered and performed, both completely untroubled by conscience or ethics. Either of them might comfortably have worked for a Hitler or Stalin, but they were luckier than that in where they landed, in charge in all but name.
