Presidential Role

Gene Healy of the Cato Institute shares his view on the presidential role of giving hundreds of speeches a year. Of course, Obama is our current president and an excellent example of the point he's trying to make, but he by no means is the only president to (have been) front and center, everyday, on every channel, giving speeches and holding press conferences. I agree with Healy that not only is it improper, but it also feeds into the unconstitutionality and irrationality of a be-everything-to-everybody-and-solve-all-our-problems-in-chief view that the head of the Executive branch has evolved into. The video can be found here and it's embedded below:
