Whatever their ideology, presidents need to be prepared to deal with unexpected crises. Since 2001, numerous unpredictable crises, including terror attacks, massive storms, and an economic collapse, have shaken Americans to their core. Technology also provides mankind with increasingly powerful ways to wreak destruction. President Obama and his team were taken aback by the sheer number of crises that a president needed to deal with, many of which do not quite reach disaster status. Troy looks at the evolving role of the president in dealing with disasters, and looks at how our presidents have handled disasters throughout our history.

// Since 2001, numerous unpredictable crises, including terror attacks, massive storms, and an economic collapse, have shaken Americans to their core. \\ End of quote!
Reading those I.G. reports on all the pure corruption of government agencies over the past 10 years is what has shaken Americans to their core, assuming ANYTHING actually has!
Hilarious, as if any sane person who has read Obama/Clinton's Trans-Pacific Partnership would actually consider either of these two traitors worthy of a book! [The one // positive \\ about their TPP? Once it's passed, there's absolutely no further need to vote - - at the national, state or local levels!]
