Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc....one 'strong' boob after another.
IMO, what America needs is someone who is not afraid to let America run itself.
To get the Fed/government out of the economy and let Americans do what they do best...run a (relatively) free enterprise economy.
To get America out of meddling in every other countries business...let them work out their own problems.
To stop being 'strong' on spending and to force America to live within her means and balance the budget.
To stop 'taking action' by giving into whiny Americans who want handouts or bailouts. Or whiny foreign interests who want gifts or the brave US soldiers to sacrifice their lives to fix their problems for them.
The POTUS should let them work their problems out themselves (outside of helping those who cannot help themselves).
I believe that the only major strength America needs from a POTUS is a President who is willing to be strong enough to risk losing an election to maintain his/her principles.
