25 years ago, 1989: President Bush testily refused to discuss a disclosure in the Oliver North trial that he played a role in secret efforts to help the Contras after Congress barred U.S. aid to the rebels.

10 years ago, 2004:  Little Tikes unveiled its newest toy, the Hummer H2 SUV, a battery powered car that featured a forward-tilt hood, chrome grill and a 'radio' with a five-song play list, cost was $250. The Adventure Series had fog lights, running boards and walkie talkies for $300.

So deception and treason run in the family.
I see Jeb Bush lining up to run for president in 2016.
The legacy continues.
I can see Fla being the swing state this time around.

Stop It

I remember that crap like it was yesterday. Ronnie Raygun at least had an excuse. Brain fade was eating him from the inside out, and Nancy was the 'real' Pres. The catch phrase of the year was, "I don't recall."
