The President is a place-keeper, PR shill

It has become increasingly clear to me over time that the President regardless of who is in office, is a place-keeper, a PR shill, a hollow vessel used to promote the agenda of power.

Yeah... Carter actually thought he had a mandate from the people. HW Bush orchestrated an October Surprise in the form of holding the Iran hostages until the last day of his presidency to ensure he would lose in 1980. GW Bush and Barack Obama had no such delusion, in fact they are well aware of their role.
