Government service is not a vocation–it’s an executive management position. It’s a job! The President is the CEO of the United States of America.
I want to be CEO of the United States of America! CEO of the United States of America is what I want to be!
I’ve been there! I’ve made lots of money! Economic virtues are political virtues. Make me your Capitalist-in-Chief!
Hire me! Vote for me! Invest in me! America’s stock will climb!
