EDITORIAL:         A Changing Role for U.S. Presidents?

                George Bush, the U.S. president who initiated government permission for use of most public transport, seemed to do as his party wished while maintaining a relatively unimpressive presence. President Obama, recognizing advancing technology, increased presidential public presence. President Trump expanded his presidency into a nearly daily show, which he has tried with considerable difficulty to maintain after leaving office. And President Biden has been entertaining us with regularly misread scripts and awkward ad libs to the extent that it may be assumed that his assistants pull the levers of power for him. America’s presidency has become performance art. Adding the necessary rehearsals and applying makeup, some might begin to wonder how much time our Leaders of the Free World actually devote to that work in these days?
