Crisis of the President
by NB Armstrong
In academia, the study of being the President of the United States is referred to as presidenticism. Crisis of the President is a welcome addition to the list of source texts available to presidenticistists in universities everywhere.* It takes us on the inside. At a time of crisis.
Sometime in the first half of the twenty first century (the exact dates are still classified), a crisis occured which threatened the very future of the American homeland. It appeared literally from under the radar, as two nuclear armed bombers emerged from the Russian skies. The world, for one day and night, held its breath. Now in his first interview since the rarely talked about events of 'The Crisis', president Sam W. Marsh relates in near accurate detail what happened behind the scenes during twenty four Armageddon hours. In candid terms never before made in public, he makes it clear that whenever enemies of the republic bestir themselves, the position of president is still absolutely quite important. What was the president doing on the morning of the crisis? What was the president doing as the crisis unfolded? What was the president doing as he persuaded a stewardess not to fear her coming death on Air Force One? And what is the president doing nearly eight years later in a Dallas bowling alley? Through the former president's comprehensive reminiscence, we learn again the burden of being the pre-eminent citizen in the pre-eminent power. That, whenever there is a global crisis, it is a Crisis of the President.
