Donald Trump Can Be A Great President

Donald Trump was elected to do what he says he'll do. You and I may think it's wrong, but the voters said he's right. Here's a difficult truth you don't want to hear: You and I are not smarter than them. We're not. They know what they want and they elected a president to do it. If you disagree with the agenda, too bad. You lost. Get over it. Try again in four years.

If we can come up with a new, highly visible position that gives Trump maximum exposure and public recognition without providing any actual powers, I suspect Mr. Trump would be more than happy to take it.

If there was ever any doubt about Mr. Johnson's suitability for the office of the president of the United States, that response sealed the deal. If a candidate is that unaware of one of the most basic foreign policy issues of the day, he shouldn't be running for dog catcher, much less president.

What's worrisome here is that more and more often, CBC journalists are being asked to offer their personal takes (called analysis pieces) on stories they regularly cover. And more and more often, these analysis pieces seem to be venturing into what can only be described as personal opinion.

The Six-Year Rule: Why U.S. Presidents Have Such Short Shelf Lives

The six-year rule is a simple arithmetic formula that dictates that an American president has run his effective course after six years in office. After that, he's pretty well useless and might as well step down. Skeptical? See Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.

However, one of the major areas that have been largely ignored is Obama's foreign policy record in the Middle East.

Mitt Romney has every right in the world to keep his tax returns private, but not as a Presidential candidate. To some, Americans may appear to be going too far, but not to me. In Canada and other mature parliamentary democracies, politicians disclose assets, liabilities and income to a "conflict" commissioner, not to the public. Summaries are available but details are not and tax returns are not disclosed to anyone. Full disclosure should be required. For every politician.
