IF: Juggle

I have not got political in my IF art so here it is. I do not envy the president's job. I think most people would agree that someone smarter, with a little backbone, could have done a much better job. That being said, the president has so much to juggle that he/she cannot make everyone happy. Anyone in that position given, the U.S.'s situation, is going to be disliked. Has this president only made the situation worse? Probably, but time will only tell.

This is a great illustration. I agree. I would not want that job. I'd like to see all the complainers do a better job themselves.

Very true good man. I don't like the guy and no, he can't please everyone. I think submitting political, or any, even slightly political or thought-provoking works to IFN is a bold move, and I applaud you. This is fantastic!

I am most saddened by our culture that feels such freedom in openly bashing the man running our country. Support the man in this critical job, then vote for who you want next election. I am so often embarassed to be an American.

That's a great picture, Josh. (Sorry, I just now got the URL's straight in my RSS reader.)

I really like the heaviness and tiredness that you can see in the face. I mean, someone with literally the world resting on their shoulders for 6 years... how would you feel? The heaviness, the tiredness, and yet the determination to "soldier on," no matter what... I don't think the picture comes across as "bashing" to me. I think it comes across as a realistic picture of what you could expect a man in such a position to be feeling.

Besides, if someone can't find at least 2-3 things GWB has done that has pissed them off and at least as many things that are probably good things... then that person's probably either a closed-minded party-line junkie or a political extremist.

That's the nature of the POTUS job.
