According to you , there has not been one good president in the last 50 years or so. How very frustrating for you.
I just cannot be that cynical, that categorical, sorry. Yes, they had plenty of warts but to find excruciating fault with pretty much every one of them and not find one single positive achievement...just imagine if in Washington's, Jefferson's, Lincoln's, Teddy's presidencies, they had been stuck with the same kind of lightning communications ,internet, and paparazzi kind of media we have now...wow, even JFK would not have lasted 6 months, and Jefferson, about 1 month.
I didn't say there weren't average/decent presidents.

I said there hasn't been a GREAT president since JFK.

When was the last time America did anything great? JFK sent us to the moon. Put American people on another celestial body. Inspired a generation who contributed heavily to our modern technology we all take for granted.

What have we done since that doesn't involve setting cities on fire?

Obama wants to go to Mars... 15 years after he is out of office to be funded and green lighted by some other guy someday.

<quoted text>The citizens of our country do not want Universal or government run plans. We want health care reforms that are fair and reasonable. How about re-allocating Medicaid funds and diverting tax revenue from medical practitioners,this along with cutting government waste could cover those that need help. When I think of health care reform,I think about the money that could be saved by cutting government waste and bureaucracy. The fastest way to cut the rise in health care costs is to change the rules for law suits. Instead of most of the dollars going to lawyers,the penalty dollars should go directly back to health care. When citizens of the United States think about health care reform,they think about reducing the cost of health care not increasing it.
Frank im honestly curious:Where did you Teabaggers EVER get the idea that you speak for the American People?
And let us not forget that the Republican Corporate toadies YOU and your idiot Tri Cornered Hat pals keep sending to Washington over and over have championed nothing for decades but best interests of the Insurance Industry and Pharmaceutical business Bottom Line.
Usually at the expense of Americans unfortunate enough to encounter Health Problems.

Yeah! Frank read that on some far Right Nut Hole Blog site!
It MUST be true!
Im sure forcing 80% of the Country out of Health Coverage is EXACTLY what Obama has in mind!

First a correction : I wrote "every 20th and 21st president". I of course meant every 20th and 21st century".

Okay, I , like you, idolized JFK. But , he was only president for less than 3 years. On the negative side, he initiated the Vietnam tragedy. You never mention that. Yes, he may or may not have escalated. But the fact is, he started it and had Diem assassinated, which did not improve the situation. He started the peace corps, but let's not forget Sergeant Shriver who did the actual work. As to space and the moon landing, yes, he invoked it and then died. LBJ was the force behind it. JFK pushed civil rights, who can forget it? But it was Eisenhower who sent in the national guards and desegregated that Little Rock school. It was him who had the civil rights act passed into law.

And, as I wrote, JFK, with all his sexual trysts, would not have lasted long in today's crazy and nutty media world.

I repeat, oh, how I admired the man, still do, and I don't give a hoot about his womanizing - but others do. I do believe I mostly admired him for his style, grace, wit, intelligence, good looks, elegant wife, but mostly FOR WHAT MIGHT'VE BEEN. Clinton, corporate hack that he was, achieved more,(imagine if GWB had built on those surpluses instead of cutting taxes for the rich and starting two unfunded wars) and same with Obama who, despite his Wall street donations and his corporate welfare to the street, never misses an opportunity to criticize and lambast it. If obamacare can carefully be improved, that alone will be quite a legacy. So will the accord with Iran - if it works.

And lest we forget Jimmy Carter's Israel-Egypt-Lebanon Camp David accords, a game-changer which to this day still holds. And his honesty, integrity, absolutely unmatched. Not all is bad in this nasty world of ours.

Gerald Ford's short but healing presidency. A good man, plain and simple.

Hummm, they mention that one victim was from a JEWISH neighborhood, another had an Hispanic last name and a third was Vietnamese. What do all three have in common? They are not ...... BLACK. And what ABC will also not tell you all the suspects are ...... BLACK!!!

'Knockout Game' Suspect Charged With Hate Crime
ABC News By LIZ FIELDS and GILLIAN MOHNEY November 24, 2013

The Brooklyn, N.Y., man accused of assaulting an Orthodox Jew in what appears to be another case of the knockout game is being charged with a hate crime for the alleged attack.

Amrit Marajh, 28, was charged with harassment as a hate crime after he allegedly punched the 24-year-old Orthodox Jewish man Friday morning.
.....
In September, Ralph Santiago, 46, of Hoboken, N.J., died from injuries resulting from a suspected knockout attack that sent him careering backward into a fence, where his head got lodged. Three teens -- two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old -- have been charged with murder.
....
And earlier in May, Elex Murphy, now 20, was sentenced to life in prison plus 25 years in St. Louis for killing a Vietnamese immigrant as part the game in 2011.

Ah, La Jacqueau, Presidents do not have anything passed!!! It was legislature that was pushed by JKF and LBJ just signed it into law. LBJ was a RACIST!!!
Oh, if JFK was alive today, he would be a REPUBLICAN!!!
Now, I do not believe that because I do not profess to know what dead people would do as La Jacqueau continues to claim he DOES KNOW. But on many issues, JFK WAS a CONSERVATIVE!!!!
JFK was a fiscal conservative, anti-Communist, PRO-Life, etc.

Yes they did. But it do require every bell and whistle that Pelosi-Care included and also included ...... TORT Reform which Pelosi-Care did not.
Again, medical bills dropped about 10% just as soon as Texas passed their medical tort reform law ten years ago ...... and their doctor shortage disappeared.

This post of yours shatters all records for dumbness. I can't believe what I just read.

First off, you didn't read or else did not understand what I wrote. I WROTE that no one knows how JFK would have dealt with Vietnam. 50-50 I wrote. I read nothing of JFK's mind except that most of the legislation he initiated was passed by LBJ, racist or not. The moon? LBJ was in charge of the moon programme when he was VP and pushed it to its fruition.

Presidents are rated on their stewardship. All laws passed and laws NOT passed are their accomplishments or non/accomplishments. This is not the first time you've considered the position of president as inconsequential - oh, you do blame democrat presidents when things seemingly go wrong and then credit congress when things go right. According to your thinking, then, and because you judge Obama's 5 years to be disastrous, do I conclude, according to your twisted logic, that it's all Congress's fault, except for the first two years?

I don't know if LBJ was racist or not. You have said it today and often before that. Any proof? Oh, my god, why'd I ask? Whatever, he did pass the civil rights bill. Yes , HE did, Rogue, he was president.

And here is the most incredible thing that you ever ever launched : "Oh, if JFK was alive today, he would be a REPUBLICAN!!!" Talk about a doozy! You mean JFK would rub shoulders with the likes of Romney, Trump, Limbaugh, Gingrich, Palin, O'reilly, GWB ? LMAO (late LRS tm reg'd). And Jackie would associate with their these duds' spouses? I can just see her exchanging opera or renaissance art with Todd Palin.

I failed to mention Vietnam because if you want to be truthful about it, Eisenhower was in Vietnam as early as WWII. So, Kennedy built up some troops and killed Diem.(who needed to be killed) He had the Catholics raiding and killing buddhist like it was sport.

It was LBJ who conducted the gulf of Tonkin false flag attack.(if there was ever an attack at all)

I never considered dying a black mark on a presidents policy before. Especially when his health didn't exactly fail. His cranial integrity did.

As far as a moon landing goes... Kennedy funded Apollo. Easy for LBJ to soak up credit for being present. Once NASA had the money, they did the rest.

It isn't like Kennedy was a space visionary. He was a formidable cold warrior. Apollo was about pounding our chests and screaming like a silverback at the Soviets.

But the result of Apollo is undeniable. We are still riding the wave it caused in technology. And tech is the only thing that will keep us THE world superpower.

I simply don't care about sexual trysts. Never have. As far as I am concerned the leader of the free world can do as he pleases if it doesn't affect job performance. That is between him and his wife. The punishment for adultery is almost always what you would call... self inflicted.

I do comprehend that presidents today are under constant scrutiny. I don't believe for a second that Kennedy somehow wouldn't have made it... Bush did.

We still have no rational explanation for how and why Kennedy was killed. Physics prevents me from believing Oswald killed him. Well, that and a visit to the book depository in Dallas.
