The Dog Makes the Man

The Hat Makes the Man:

...and the man makes the dog. (Hat tip to T99, who should remember that she has posting rights here.)

Maggie's Farm says, "Pathetic. Even when my kids were little, they would not put up with that from our dogs. That is now a worthless dog, and it is the owners' fault."

It's not a worthless dog, though. That dog could be put right in thirty minutes by a man who knew how to do it. The problem is, having done it, the training would need to be reinforced and maintained. "Mr. President" would be right back in this situation in a few weeks, even if you handed him an animal that was perfectly trained.

That's nature at work. That's a metaphor for where the whole world is going, as long as he remains in the position he's in.
