The responsibilities of the President can be unfair and unrealistic. Lincoln had the Civil War, FDR had the Great Depression and WWII, Truman had the atomic bomb, JFK had the Cuban Missile Crisis, Reagan was almost assassinated, G.W. Bush had 9/11--none of those things were "fair" or "realistic" to cope with but they did the best they could. The job has never been "easy" for any of our presidents.
