No, I’m not nominating Rocky Bridges for president. I just want to quote him.
Rocky once said there are three things that everybody in the world thinks they can do: run a hotel, manage a baseball team, and write a book.
To this we must add, “And be president.”
Is there anyone, at any given hour of any given day, who does not know what the President of the United States should do? “The president needs to do such-and-such, right now!” “Here’s what the president has to do…” And so on. It must be the easiest job in the world. And if not, well, you’ve got an infinite quantity of advice.
How easy? Doddering Joe Biden promises to name a woman as his running mate, who will become president if Joe gets elected and then conks out. It sounds like a little more than half the people in the country, in Joe’s opinion, are fully qualified to be president. And that’s Rocky in the background, sagely nodding his head.
Can you imagine being president and actually trying to take all the advice you get?
If that doesn’t give you the horrors, nothing will.
