So You Want to be President? 1960 Topps # 22 Rocky Bridges Detroit Tigers (Baseball ...

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.

  1. “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” Mark Twain – Author (1835 – 1910)

  2. My wife and I are big Trump supporters, but I have to get onto her from time to time when she doesn’t agree with something Trump says (like he called Diane Feinstein an honorable woman). I tell her Trump can’t know everything, and she answers that he should.

  3. What amazes me, is the extent to which people personalize these matters. When Mr. Trump speaks about this disease, he is speaking not his personal opinions, but instead speaks upon the information gleaned from advisors whom are experts in their fields. He doesn’t wake up in the morning and make sweeping policy decisions on a hunch; he collects information and acts thereupon. At the heart of it all, the President must be a good coordinator.

    1. No, no! It’s much more like a high school popularity contest–a validation of the wonderfulness of your group. Now that *Batteries Not Included has been president… who can’t be?
