Ronald Reagan's vision of a moral Preidency. Here the Republican leader and presidential candidate apparent reponds to a student's question about "how a Pres. should act in today's world." "[F]irst," Reagan begins, "we should all be aware of the limit on a Presidents power when he is confronted by a hostile Cong. He can do little but veto their more extreme proposals." But Reagan then outlines a strategy he would use himself in the White House: "I do believe however, there is a moral force to the Presidency. In my opinion a Pres. today should use the media (radio & TV etc) as F.D.R. used radio in the '30's. He should take his case to the people,—explain his problems and his proposed situations. In this way he can unite & mobilize citizen support so that they make Cong. feel their wants. They may not see the light," he jokes, "but they'll feel the heat." Having invoked memories of one Democrat to make his point, this future Republican President closes by quoting still another Chief Executive from the opposition: "After all it was Harry Truman who described his job as a lobbyist for all the people."
