    Welcome to most presidencies. Very few presidents can actually handle what’s thrown at them that well. Keep in mind that Reagan sold missiles to Iran as part of a hostage exchange, Bush invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, Carter screwed up the housing market with the Community Reinvestment Act, both Republicans and Democrats supported the disastrous US intervention in Afghanistan in response to the soviets, and so on.
    The state generally is terrible at handling situations at hand and tends to create new problems.
