POTUS Medius Ocris

Nobody asked but …

I have opined for a very long time that there have been no above average POTUS’es.  The scorecard reads 45 incumbents, 45 ho-hummers.  Even great Americans, such as Jefferson, Cleveland, Coolidge, and Eisenhower barely got out of the office without serious repair work required on their reputations.  In 41 other cases, excellence never enters the picture.  Do you doubt that there are thousands of real estate minds, just in NYC, that exceed the wrestling promoter/reality show clown that serves as the current, most mediocre, resident of the Whitehouse?  Of course he is making the media look bad.  That’s no extraordinary behavior.  That should be entertaining for a day or two, max.
