"What would a president have to do to be proven incompetent?"


  

          

Sure, we have had presidents impeached for blowjobs and asked to resign because they were power-tripping, but there hasn't been a precedent for being completely unqualified...yet.

What would it take? Is it even possible with the people surrounding the office (i.e. handlers and consultants)?

But his legacy has remained surprisingly intact despite a portion of the country considering his presidency a failure and embarrassment.

so i dunno what that means.

the POTUS has to be at least 35 years old, a US resident and a natural born citizen. that's it.

fuck you.

:-(

The same stipulations/gauges regarding competency in the court of law apply to the office right?

1. don't ever use 'stipulation' like that again. a stipulation is merely an agreement between parties in a legal matter that certain facts are true.

2. no, the USC doesn't impose any requirements on POTUS beyond the ones i listed.

fuck you.

They were admitting that Regan had alzheimers and 90% of the time forgot where he was at or what he said the day before.

I'm like how in the hell did they let that shit fly without just letting him retire and let the vice-pres take over?

Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.

Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Section 3. Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

So a president was in a coma then the VP would become P - but if he's mentally ill or something else then there'd be a crisis.

Reagan and Woodrow Wilson come to mind.

Kennedy was probably heavily on pain killers.
