Letter From The President: Can hire but can't fire?

Tue, 3 Jul 2007 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
I am going through a lot right now. I am having sleepless nights thinking about what I’d do when I leave the Castle. I know I could go and manage my (son's?) hotel or even take a nice vacation on an exotic island somewhere. But I am confused. As if that’s not enough, I am having to deal almost on a daily basis with the obstinacy of the so-called G8 Ministers – those serving ministers who want to run for president but are reluctant to resign their positions as government officials. I warned them months ago but my inability to follow my words with deeds is causing me a great deal of distress. To make matters worse, I get the feeling that these guys are hell bent on embarrassing me and making me look like a man without balls – a lame duck president who can hire but can’t fire.

And that’s might be who I really am.
