So, really, you're saying that the problem is Presidents SEEM to suck because Americans just want a king, and not a president. But then there are these arguments about why they did suck, and it's not always because they weren't king-like enough.

no, my argument is that they do suck, because they are men, and not divine.

my goal is to persuade Americans to stop expecting perfection every election cycle by giving 44 examples of how we have been disappointed in the past.

but yes, the examples i give are not "lack-of-kingliness", unless we think of "king" as "divine" or "perfect".
