Best Answer

The President . It is obvious as he is commander-in-chief. by the way the Navy dept had a short lived and somewhat sardonic acronym for this role- CINCUS pronounced ( Sink-Us!) Commander In chief, US-) Only He can sink us! With regard to aquatic scandals such as the Watergate (Nixon) and Whitewater (Clinton) it may be an apt choice but was ditched in favor of Potus- President of The US. CINCUs may still be used but a well it might be considered washed-up.
