What is the job of the President of the United States?

In as few words as possible what is the job of the President of the United States of America?
No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

Leader of the free world!
Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

He's the figurehead, our leader, the Commander-in-chief.

His word carries clout...so much so that when he says; "Let's bomb Baghdad" it actually gets done.

I would say it is: preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States.

So it it the job of the president to make the poor not poor? I would say that is the job of the poor.

Like I said the job it to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Lol. We are REALLY gonna have to agree to disagree. Nowt wrong with that. Why ask the bloomin' question if you think you already know the answer? If it was you that asked it, that is.

Unless, someone MAY need a bigger boat...

I'm not on about the present, past or future President (although you make a good point--I don't the know the issue you are on about however, and don't really wish to know 'cos both sides will argue).

I'm on about the position. And to me: 'My priority is to look after the poor in this country first, and to uphold the constitution second' sounds far better than 'My priority is to uphold the constitution firs and look after the poor second.'

In other words (I'm agnostic, but) should man come before the law, or should the law come before man?

Jeez. I'm not on about any particular President, past, present or future. I'm not getting personal. I'm on about the role. And that applies to the leaders of any country. In fact, it should apply to all of us. But how many walk by beggars? Using any (ANY) excuse not to give money.

Remember Prince in 'Beautiful Strange', well, believe me or not, some beggars may be other people in disguise...and no, I'm not getting mystical here...

I hope who posted the original statement was doing it to debate, because is is a good question. I hope he/she did not do to provoke an argument about the present incumbent. Still, it's up to the lot of you.

I thought he was on about the position, not the person, past, present or future. Still...

All leaders ever have been out-of-order, believe it or not. The greatest person of the last century for me was Luther King.

Even Obama has said, "we're a country of laws". Society needs laws and we have to system to change them if we find the unjust. We have court systems to protect the poor. I say the law is there protect everyman and comes first.

I understand it's not perfect, but to not enforce it or change it is neglectful and criminal.

The same crappy politicians and government agencies screwed up both situations. This oil leak will affect more people and kill more wildlife than 3 katrinas.

How much wildlife died during and from the effects of Katrina?

We don't know.

The oil leak effecting more people? How are you counting the effects?

I don't want you to think like me. I just want you to think.

The wildlife that died during Hurricane Katrina isn't comparable to offshore drilling.

The oil leak affecting more people is based on the damage to nature all along the eastern seaboard of the US. Our seafood supply and tourism.

Valid differences?

What damage to the eastern seaboard?

Has the spill entered the Atlantic Ocean?

The damage along the shoreline in the Gulf of Mexico is longer lasting, but not as costly (yet).

The critism of Obama and his administration is the response to the problem. It's been real easy to blame others and criticize their performance, until your the boss.

The President of the United State's job is to be a Salesman of the System.

Their job is to indoctrinate the American people into the ruling-class ideology -- to praise and apologize for the free-enterprise system (the belief that "you can be a corporate-class billionaire too if you just try") and denounce actual collectivist alternatives.

The President's job is also to keep the American taxpaying majority in fear of wild-eyed foreign enemies that are not far off and ready to pounce on good, honest freedom-loving Americans, etc. thwarted only by an ever increasing gargantuan military budget.

Presidents usually downplay crises relating to the economy and emphasize ones needed to justify arms spending, overseas military interventions, and free-market "reforms."

Whether Dem or Rep, liberal or conservative, the President tends to treat corporate-capitalist interest as synonymous with the nation's well-being as a whole. They greet accumulation of wealth by a relative few super-wealthy individuals as a manifestation of a "healthy" national economy, regardless of how that wealth is applied or distributed.

It's also apparent that the job of President of the U.S. now for the past few decades is to be a loyal and obedient servant to the interests of Israel (i.e. a foreign country), unfortunately.
