Never. Part of the president's job is to make the tough decisions. A lot of near-humans will sacrifice their lives for the return of humanity. Humans will prevail.

Dick Richardson is the President of the United States since March 5th, 2220 to 2242. In 2242, he presides on the Enclave Oil Rig and oversees the progress of the Project.[1]


Dick Richardson entered the political scene on the Oil Rig in 2215 as a Congressman whose father and then President, Richardson Senior, was aiding to succeed as the next President. On March 5th, 2220, Dick was elected President and began serving the first out of his five terms. One of the first things Dick did as President was during October of 2220 when he, for the sake of morale, classified the prototype results, accidents, explosions, and deaths of the development of a reliable version of the Advanced power armor Mk II. [2]

When encountered by the Chosen One in 2242, Dick Richardson is a much older man whose vitality has given way to absent mindedness and an appearance comparable to his tired and frayed suit.[3]
