Is a quiet US President a successful President?
Over here in the UK, former President George Bush was never off the UK news channels when he was in power, now with President Obama in charge, it is clear here that he is very rarely on the news just maybe a few times per week.
He can be !, The problem is that our crazy media is the deciding factor in the success of any politician , our "free speech " media IS the problem , in the reality of our system the President isn't as powerful ,by any means, as senate and congress. Bushes success [ or not ]will be decided by historians as will Obama's, So far I think that most of America is dissapointed in general in the inactivity in of government as a whole. All of the political noise in America is just that! Noise.
Really, only a few times a week. Over here you cannot turn on the TV without Obama giving a speech about something, somewhere.
I think that during George Bushes presidency, he was in good graces with your government and that may have influenced the amount of time he spent on the news.
I have to say that Obama is a compelling speaker, although doesn't say much when he does speak--if you know what I mean.
I would not call him a quiet president, just ineffective.
