What each president teaches us:
« on: February 01, 2012, 03:21:13 PM »

JFK: When you are good looking, charismatic, and dead...people will think you're the greatest

Johnson: Sometimes somebody's got to die before you get any respect

Richard Nixon: Suddenly your detractors are too pusyy to say anthing bad about you once you are dead

Ford: You can solve diplomatic problems, vigorously veto legilation, and be a model Republican...but nobody will remember you except for falling down stairs.

Carter: There is one unforgivable sin in American politics, honestly giving bad news.

Reagan: If you smile well when lying about how great the economy is doing when the inflation adjusted median income of the American worker is going down, idiots will still believe you are a miracle worker even decades later

GHW Bush: You can live vicariously through your Children!

Clinton: Don't trust chicks who won't swallow

GW Bush: It doesn't matter if you are a coke using military post deserter; as long as you have Money, Christians, and the right wing propaganda machine on your side

Obama: No matter how many times you give into the right wing in actual policy and legislation, they are still going to hate you.

An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

If Gingrich gets elected, the lesson there will be that you can be ugly like Johnson, lie like Nixon, be stupid like Bush and have sex like Clinton and still get elected.

I never considered him particularly stupid, and I don't care about ugly. None the less, his lack of principles, honesty,shame, and empathy are astounding even by Republican standards.

Mine would be: (at least for what comes to mind with each name)

JFK - space goals/moon

Johnson - Civil Rights / Veitnam

Nixon - Opened up China to the West & "I am not a crook"

Ford - pardon of Nixon

Carter - Panama Canal transfer / no wars

Reagan - actor / military build up / poor policy development

GHB - 1st Gulf War

Clinton - balanced budget/surplus...and yes, Monica

GWB - election screw up/ 9-11/2 unfunded wars

Obama - 1st black man elected / economic mess / making America less ugly to the rest of the world.

Romney - 1st Mormon/ govern by magic underware/ slide back into recession/ class unrest
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Tide goes in, tide goes out !!!
