We have an unhealthy culture of President worship in this country. We expect one person to be our moral leader, solve all of our problems, and, in turn, we yield too much of our own power to the President and the Federal government. In the long run, it's good that we are disappointed by Presidents -- hopefully, it will lead to our growing up and learning to use our personal power and liberty to solve our own problems.
