    Default A hypothetical day as president……

    Lets have a fun hypothetical. Lets pretend there was some contest or maybe fund raising raffle and you won. And the prize was being President of the United States for one day. You would sit in the Oval office chair and President Obama and Vice President Biden would be at your side and disposal. You would have from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can only do things that are actually in the Presidents power to do. You would have, for the hypothetical, a week to prepare so if you had wanted to call meetings or appointments with folk they could be sent the required invitations and travel needs to get to you for your day. Or conversely if you wanted to travel the Presidents staff would have time to arrange. Or if you planned on requesting documents and stuff…..

    a week to prepare, one work day in the chair, only things a President is legally able to do.

    What would you do?

    Write a Executive Order getting rid of all previous and future executive orders. Present a Budget, go skeet shooting at Camp David.... Look for the book of secrets and find the treasure...

    Can I send Obama and Biden to my day?

    I had new headlights put in yesterday, and they're too dim and the brights don't work, so I need to go to the repair shop this afternoon; I have a clogged garbage disposal; my attempts to skim-coat the flaking plaster around the office window are a mess, and I'd like to paint this weekend so that I can get my personal and professional books and papers off the stairs. I need to grade 88 journals and about 150 in-class writing assignments, and 16 freshman book projects (they're pretty good--they might be kind of fun for someone else to look at). If there's time left over, I need a pot of something other than beef vegetable soup--it's yummy, but I've been working on it for almost a week and it's tiresome and should go in the freezer; I also need to research cheap rimadyl.

    On my end--that's easy. World Peace.

    my own list is not done yet.
    my start.
    9:01 a.m. walk in.
    Eliminate the federal Transportation Safety Agency and all it's pesky shampoo rules. All those private industry travel companies and municipal airports and train places can make and enforce their own. Redeploy all those suddenly unemployed TSA folk instead of firing them to individual states. Working as needed help in prisons and local unemployment offices. If they did their grooping there it would be very productive.
    Eliminate the department of homeland security. Totally redundant waste of everything. Give all of the gear to whatever state it lay in. Absorb all the personal back into US Border patrol or FBI or needed local law enforcement. Again, not firing any man on the street.
    Turn to our Attorney General who I have waiting. Ask for and read the true report of our Mexican gun running scandal.
    Turn to our Secretary of State who I have waiting, with Mrs. Clinton by his side. Ask for and read the true report of our embassy scandal.
    9:45 a.m. 15 min press conference stating what I just did and what I just read. Jack web style just the facts. No questions taken.
    10:00 a.m. coffee in the oval office with General Dempsey Order everybody, every piece of gear, every piece of brass and scrap of metal we lugged, out of Afghanistan starting immediately. Order the instillation of remote detonation devices installed on the jets we are about to sell to those pesky terrorists. Order the close of our Army and Marine bases in Japan, all personal and all the gear. Leave the Navy. Order the redeployment of a bunch of those folk to our friendly neighbor to the south, Mexico. Call President Nieto and let him know we are coming. He is having a bit of a security issue that affects us. We will lend a hand like only we can.
    !0:30 a.m. undo, tell to undo, start the undo, just fricken get rid of..... Obamacare.
    11:00 a.m. meeting with Bill Gates and Mike Astrue (head of social security) Have them eliminate all of the decades worth of redundant buildings, files, processes and total money wasting crap social security has. Get that fricken debt anchor running lean and mean and digital. To save trees, you know?
    !2:00 p.m. Lunch with First Lady. She needs my fashion advise
