Newsweek Uses Same Excuse for Obama as Carter: Presidency Too Big for One Man |


The presidency always seems too big when it is doing things people don't want done. Again, as the article points out, Reagan handled the presidency with ease; George HW Bush didn't seem to be too out of breath, and George W Bush and Bill Clinton both seemed, at times, to draw strength from the presidency, rather than be diminished by it.

But Obama and Carter can't and couldn't handle it.

I think it says more about Carter and Obama than it says about the presidency.
