    would ever be allowed to become President of the United States.

    You seem to think we still live in a Republic where the people actually choose their leaders.

        My argument is not that this person is wrong...my argument is that she thinks the President (any President) can do anything about it.

          JFK fired Allen Dulles and was prepared to restructure the CIA and withdraw from Viet Nam . . . and then he had a very bad day in Dallas

          The idea that things have to be this way or that the president is powerless only creates more smoke for them to hide behind.
