Come on, people...
It is impossible to micromanage a country of 300 million...
Obama, Bush, probably any president ever, has been a very smart man. Whether rich or not, it is not easy to get a degree from any Ivy League college
and it required knowledge.
It is easy to comment from the sidelines, but I am 100% sure most if not all people here would not do better if on the same position.
There are usually million different things happening at the same time across a country like that. No person would have the time to get all the
information. As far as I know, every politician has people for it. Whether campaign managers, image consultants, other party members. Everybody is in
charge of a certain aspect. Most speeches are not written by the presidents, all the information they get comes from the meetings with different staff
members who are in charge of different areas. The staff members have people to select information out for them.
A leader has to be in a way jack of all trades, undertanding various different fields. Although it is impossible to be specialist in everything. That
is why there are so many consultants, specialists at their fields.
The leader has to make the decisions based on the information they get.
Best leaders have everything managed like that. It is impossible to know everything happening in the world in detail, knowing every law, every scheme
in detail. At first a team of trustworthy consultants is made, who are all responsible for certain fields, who have to report in meetings what is
happening for the leader to get the overall picture of the situation. The consultants have teams working for them. Everything comes through
different channels and of course some screw-ups are hidden from the "boss".
In such a big country with so much responsibility in the world, it is impossible to know everything that is happening. It is simply impossible
time-wise. Very small government is impossible.
Lots of people act here as being a president is a piece of cake. It is not. If somebody implies that it just shows their ignorance and lack of
