Attention Mr. President



The hardest job in world

Have you ever thought what it would be like to be president of the United States? It’s one of the hardest jobs in the world, but it does give you the opportunity and power to change things for the better. The president is able to issue executive orders that can change some (not all) of the governing rules without the approval of Congress. Imagine that you have just been elected president. Based on the issues you read about in the St. Petersburg Times, what are the first three presidential executive orders you would give? What challenges do you foresee in the implementation of these orders? Share your ideas here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
