Hits idea of the presidency as entertainment



This is in reference to the Jan. 19 letter by E. Maner. The letter praised the entertainment qualities of President Bill Clinton.

I would suggest to Mr. Maner that if he is looking for a blockbuster American production with drama, suspense, intrigue, etc. -- by the way, he forgot to mention comedy -- then he should go to a theater and see a Bruce Willis movie.

The job of the president is to lead the citizens of our country, not to provide entertainment for us and make himself look like a buffoon to the rest of the world. Cheer up, Mr. Maner. You might not have to leave the country after all. Donald Trump says he wants to be president and that will give you another clown to vote for.
