What era do Democrats look back to as the "Golden Age"?

Yes, and they want another one, so they can get their hooks into everything again.

Props to a commentator over at Human Events for inspiration.

Worst President ever, Hummm

I was born in 1965, the list of candidates for worst in my lifetime is an impressive field. I really can’t rate the current administration as their body of???? Poop??? isn’t complete but, he is by no means mathematically eliminated from the race . I think most people (like them or not) would say that Ford, Regan, Clinton and Bush Sr. were not the worst. I do think an argument could be made for the rest, with the worst being heavily influenced by one’s own political beliefs.. The two I find fascinating are LBJ and Nixon both very affective at times other times not and both horribly flawed people.

Not to mention how effective both men were at times.

But you're right. Both were probably more affective than they were effective.

Yeah, we haven't had a thoroughly decent President since Eisenhower, but Obama is easily the worst in modern history.

Hell, Nixon wasn't even the crook he was made out to be :

Right. I'm shocked, shocked I say.

Let's be serious -- he's not that bad a President. Neither do I think he's great, but worst since Carter? I'm sure right-wingers think so. Mostly because ANY Democrat in office is the worst since Carter at that point in time.

that makes NO sense whatsoever; there has only been ONE Democrat in office since Carter...

You do know this, yes??

Ike had it made, pretty much. Not exactly a challenging time to be President, to be honest.

Nixon was a vile, corrupt, petty, racist, paranoid lunatic of a ****ing President. Furthermore, your post is irrelevant because nobody gives a shit whether he ORDERED Watergate, the point is he covered it up.

You aren't seriously going to try to DEFEND this right?

No, there have been two.

But Clinton was "the worst President since Carter", and now Obama is, and I have little doubt that whichever Democrat is elected next will take that title from Obama, in the minds of the right.

Makes perfect sense, dimwit.

Ummm...

The Korean War??

The Cold War and escalation of conflict in Southeast Asia??

'Not challenging'??

Are you a ****ing moron??

He told Kennedy to 'stay out of Vietnam' as he left office for a reason; he warned us of the impending escalation of the military industrial complex in his last speech as President...he was just smart.

No one listened.

And our last decent President.

Every single one since has done the exact stupid shit that he warned us about.

And dipshits like you think he had it easy??

Nope. Never.

He allowed the Feebs to wiretap Lennon and **** with his immigrant work status.

**** Nixon. He ain't no friend of mine.

But I'm sure he had a soul.

I'm not sure Obama does...

We will see soon enough. The GOP is too fractured and spineless to do shit.

No shit. My immediate family, literally, would have discussions about whether Bill Clinton was the antichrist or not when he was in office.

Shocker! Now they're having the same conversations about Obama.
