Mr. President. . .George Washington. . .

The correct title of the book.
"Mr. President"
George Washington
And the making of the nation′s highest office.

A few excerpts;
My country, John Adams barked has in its wisdom contrived for me the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived.
George Washington, however, was even more furious, he had won the election unanimously as new nation′s first president and had less to do than the vice president.
To his consternation, the Constitution, he himself had helped write had given the vice president specific obligations, but not the president.

It is indispensable...that thereshould be lodged somewhere a Supreme Power to regulate and govern the general concerns of the confederated republic, without which Union cannot be of long duration....There must be a faithful and pointed compliance on the part of every state with demands of congress, or the most fatal consequences will ensue.
Whatever measures have a tendency to dissolve the Union, or contribute to violate or lessen the Sovereign Authority, ought to be considered as hostile to the liberty and independency of America, and the authors of them treated accordingly.
∼ George Washington

My Note;
Was George Washington talking to us about the ′daft twerp′?
Who attacking everything from the news media to his own Department of Justice, his own Attorney General and the Assistant Attorney General.
To try to end an investigation of russian meddling in our 2016 presidential elections on his behalf.

What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!
