The US President's Job is NOT fixing the US Economy.

The President is the Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces and he also guides our Foreign Policy. These duties are given to the Presidency by Article II of the Constitution of the United States of America.

The power to levy taxes, borrow money and regulate commerce is given to the legislative branch. So if you have a problem with employment, taxes or the economy blame your Congress and Senate persons.

When choosing a President, don't pick the one that says he will get you a job, because he can't. Pick one that is pro-military and has a strong foreign policy. I love Bush because everyone else in the world hates him. That tells me he is doing his job. Teddy said it best, "Speak softely and carry a big stick...". Sounds like Bush to me.

Generally I believe that Democrats tend to make good legislators and Republicans make good Presidents. If the balance is there, they keep an eye on each other.
