    Meaningless as it is Congress that has the most effect on this, not the president. Plus most effect the president has is not felt until after they leave office as it has a delayed effect.

    This is a contradiction because you are saying the President has little effect but then say he does.

    You are incorrect to say that the President has little effect. However, I agree with you that often times, the following President has to clean up the after-effects of the previous President. For example, Clinton was a good President from an economic stand-point, but he was also aided by a tremendous bubble that popped about when he left office, and the after-math effected the Bush Presidency, though Bush had nothing to do with the collapsing bubble.
