The Right Stuff: Great power, character a rarity but necessary

By Jim McCully

Jim McCully: The Right Stuff: Published April 18, 2022 I am quite disappointed with President Biden compared to former President Trump. One of our greatest, President Abraham Lincoln, said: “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

In America, nothing compares to the power and prestige of the President of the United States (POTUS). We have other powerful leaders in our Congress, and the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). However, POTUS sets the nation’s tone. Americans have taken party identification to such extremes that what we called bi-partisanship, has become the exception rather than the rule. We citizens have no one to blame but ourselves as we, with one notable exception (SCOTUS), voted these people into power.[ more]
