Ted is the reddest of racist rednecks. Obviously has some dain bramage from all the drugs during his 70's run as a no-talent rock star. Why is it, that the more stupid and/or offensive a person is, the more of a hero he is to the teaparty bunch? Birds of a feather?

I did not like LBJ or Nixon.

Ralph J.

I did like Ike. He did warn us about the companies that profit from wars.

John Kennedy, for the simple fact he saved the world from nuclear war during the Cuban missile crisis. We now know if he had followed the military advice we would have had nuclear war. His cool head kept that from happening.

@ 44846 GWP : Ah, JFK


" Don't let it be forgot
That once there was a spot,
For one brief, shining moment
That was known as Camelot "


Amen brother.

Re: "Camelot"

King Arthur and the Kennedys - both myths.

Re: "John Kennedy,"

A rapist, adulterous, philandering member of a wealthy crime family.

Re: "Cuban missile crisis."

Know your history: It ain't all one sided.

Bay of Pigs invasion? U.S. missiles encircling the USSR? U-2 spy flights over Russia?

Yea, JFK was blameless.

Oh Winnie, just go away. People are tired of your bull. Get a job.

Re: "Oh,"

Oh Zippy, just keep your head up your butt, while praying to your little tin god. :)

@ Contango : I can assure you my friend, I have forgotten more about JFK than the average person knows. However, what can not be denied is that he, like Ronald Reagan ( who's administration had more scandals in it than Harding's, if that's possible ) inspired Americans like few others ever have done. And that is, bless it be fond memory's, what we remember him for.

Agree with Cliff. JFK was the first president who wasn't an old stodgy white guy. He had flair and panache, and spoke for the common man. I find it funny that 50 years later, Republicans are still nominating stodgy, grumpy old white guys.

Re: "JFK was the first president who wasn't an old stodgy white guy."

What? His father wasn't politically connected and didn't help buy his son an election?

Let's just ignore the adultery and philandering.

Contango

Re: "inspired Americans like few others ever have done."

The avg. American of today probably couldn't tell ya one thing that he did or tell you when he lived.

I tend not to fawn over politicos. Especially rich, pompous hypocrites like the Kennedy crime family.

Not sure about the best, but Washington would be near the top of the list. I have NO DOUBT who the worst is: the current clueless IDIOT residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. He should have been impeached 6 years ago!!!

Wally: how it works is this: to be impeached, you have do something that rises to the level of impeachment. Here's an example: you have to lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction in order to coerce America into supporting your plans to enter two unnecessary wars.

In short, if Bush didn't get impeached for the above, if he didn't get impeached for ignoring obvious pre-9/11 warnings about Al Qaeda, if he didn't get impeached for bringing us into the worst financial disaster in 90 years, then nothing Obama has done is even remotely impeachable.

Re: "worst financial disaster in 90 years"

Yea, Pres. Bush did it singlehandedly and Dems were TOTALLY non-complicit. lol

Impeachment for Pres. Obama? Perhaps for incompetency.
