The meeting was behind closed doors with the tightest security possible. Only those who were in direct knowledge of committee were allowed to even be around,other then the Elders who where in the actual meeting room. The chairman of the Committee called the meeting to order. The members took their seats, and business was discussed. The future of the country was in their hands. They know knew it.Various options were discussed as to what to do with the current President of the United States, and several of his administrative aides. The President had been abusing his office and using his power of Executive Order in ways it was not was was originally intended, to the point of breaking the law, and ignoring the Constitution.There are a number of factions within the Committee who were in favor of more radical means to deal with the problem. It was felt it had gone on way too long and the effects were ruining the Country. They were in favor of actually executing the President. or at the very less bring up for impeachment for his actions in office, But it was well known how long it to impeach a President. Then another idea was brought to the table. Would it be possible to replace him with a impostor? Someone who will act according to what they wanted, and undo as much of the damage as they can, and hopefully bring the US back to where it should be. The idea was greeted with skepticism . While in theory it could work, but it would take far too long to prepare someone to do it, and they felt they didn't have the time. About the time time that point was brought up. A side door opened up. In waked a Dead Ringer for the President. The gentleman walked in, stood in the front of the room, There was a sudden quiet throughout the room as the looked at a perfect likeness of the President standing before him. A member of the Committee got up to speak.
"This is OUR President, Gentleman. Shall we call him Mr. Green, has been studying the President for the last six months learning his history, mannerisms, and even listening in on his personal life, to the point he knows everything there is to know about the President. Along with that he has been studying what the president has done and the best ways to undo the damage already done. On a further note, plans are already in the works to switch him for the real one, and to keep the real President hidden for the next two years."
The questions that followed were varied as the switch was to made, but more importantly how to handle the real President for the next two years. The rest of the meeting was answering questions, and thinking up scenarios where stuff could go wrong, and how to handle them, and what to do if the whole thing failed, or worst yest the public found out. Most all they could do was pray they never figured it out. As for the real President. It was decided that he should have a health issue that required he be in hospital for a length of time, when he came out "Mr Green" would running the show, with support staff from the Committee. Meanwhile the real President wold be moved to a secure location and kept under wraps and out of sight or the next two years, the remainder of his term. If needed even killed if they had to go that far, which they didn't want to.
So wheels were set in motion. plans made, and it was arranged for the real President to have a stomach bug that required him to be temporary hospitalized for several day. Within a week the real President was in hospital, suffering a temporary stomach ailment that kept off his feet for a couple days. It was kept very quiet. The President that came back to the White House was "Mr Green".
The outside world did not know of their existence. What they saw was a turn around to policy changes, and a redirection in the way the White House was run, rescinding of Executive Orders, and other changes, that make people start respecting the President, Something very few ordinary people had been doing for the last few years.
On the foreign policy front, a even handed and stronger stance had lead to various nations, joining them, in the battle on terrorism, and other issues, Commitments to send whatever ground troops needed, had lead to alliances that had fallen apart in recent years.
A turn around on public policy concerning citizens rights, and finical matters had over the next two years made the US a stronger country. Countries started respecting them again, and many people began to compare him with old Teddy Roosevelt and his saying, "Speak Softly, but Carry a Big Stick," There even had been some talk of comparing the last two years of his term as "Camelot Years." in reference to Kennedy .
The Committee knew the truth. It been a very long and ruthless two years, but they had succeeded, in turning the country around.
Now it was time for the next president to continue where "Mr Green" had left off.
