I was discussing with a friend what I would do if I was ever invited to meet the president of the USA. The topic came up while watching a sports show, and a pro team met with the prez.
I know longer adhere to the belief of respecting the office. The office is not the same as it was when Washington had it. Those who have read any of my political rants know why I believe as I do. To meet the president, and not have a chance to talk one on one with him would be a waste of time.
I would much rather meet with a cold beer, and a bowl of peanuts. At least they are honest and real.
