What is a president?

We once had a president named William Jefferson Clinton, educated as a lawyer. When caught in a scandal with a White House intern, his classic lawyer defense comment was, "It depends on what the word is, is."

Now we have a very similar situation with a president named Barack Hussein Obama, also educated as a lawyer, who is caught up in a scandal resulting in the deaths of four heroic American citizens. His comment on national television, when attempting to defend his position on the Benghazi scandal, was to utter the profound statement, "There is no there, there."

This has to be a telling argument against permitting any person trained in the legal profession from ever serving in any government office. Their natural inclination, and expertise, is to weasel word any and all arguments to benefit their personal agendas. Any and all possible benefits to their constituents and country have absolutely no place in their discussions.
