No McQueeg ? No Willard ? Without them, Zero could never have been elected. Bush family should also get dishonorable mentions, too.

This is excellent and a very good read.

I think the two worst were/are Teddy Kennedy and George Soros because their evil deeds will last forever.

Obama won because he was a transformational and inspiring candidate.

NO Republican could have won in 2008 after the Bush years and the economy.

McCain led Obama in the polls after the 2008 RNC, and since then, his career was on the downward spiral.

Bush and Cheney failed to grow a farm system for the GOP.

Iraq was the worst foreign policy decision in world history. Period.

McCain, Graham, Lieberman, Cheney and Bush all sold American voters that stupid war for what reason?

Look what the past 18 years has led us.

My old man (1917-1984) surprised me as a kid when he said he hated FDR and JFK.

“But DAD!!?? FDR won World War II and got us out of the depression, and JFK was assassinated!” (As a kid educated in publik skool they were idols to me.)

“FDR was terrible for the USA during the depression, and JFK was a womanizer and a liberal.” That was all he said - I wish he had told me more.

It wasn't until college (and Reagan) that I understood what my old man was talking about (and agreed with him, and could talk more with him). He had some rough years in business under Carter. I'm glad that he got to see Reagan be president!

BTW - Kennedy would be a conservative compared to a lot of the democrats of today!

With all due respect, horseshit. An excellent President, had Shrub been one, could’ve EASILY handed the office off to another Republican. Both McQueeg and Willard were deliberate RINGERS for Zero, working as part of the corrupt, bipartisan Derp State to prevent ANY viable Conservative opponent to Zero (or Hillary, for that matter).

There was nothing transformative or inspiring about Zero. He was a radical Communist and thinly-closeted Mohammadan with no accomplishments and a string of shady, anti-American links and terroristic supporters. He couldn’t deliver a speech without help from a teleprompter. He was aided by a corrupt, subversive anti-American media, radical Hollyweird culture, Big Ed, and the aforementioned bipartisan political combine.

2008 and 2012 would best be described as ‘the Big Fix.’ Had someone like former OK Gov. Frank Keating, a former FBI agent who had pursued Zero’s sponsors, been the nominee, he would’ve reduced Zero to a blubbering mess of slime.

Your father died at a pretty early age and I can tell that you still miss him, but cherish your time with him. He was an intelligent man and at least he told you the facts; just enough for someone of tender years, I assume.

Having grown up in a family where politics and news was discussed daily, where I was fascinated by what the adults said so managed to absorb a lot...just by listening when adult friends and family visited and the talk really "got into the weeds", so to speak, and lucky enough to have gone to school where and when real FACTS were taught, by the time JFK was running for president, I was aware enough to understand what a TERRIBLE man he was. And though still in high school, I certainly did NOT know all THAT much about just HOW terrible a person he was, but did learn that later.

I'm writing a journal of historical FACTS about the times I've lived through, for my grandchild; if you have any such, you should write one too...so that the truth reaches them when you no longer can.

How can FDR not be at the top of the list?

I agree with you that Frank Keating would have been a good president in 2008. I think Dubya was going to pick Keating instead of Cheney. But Rove forced Bush to pick Cheney. Keating would have beaten Obama by 5 points but ‘08 was a bad year to be a Republican. Period.

Great list. I might leave Jimmuh Cahtuh off it because stupid and feckless is not the same as openly evil. We’ve had plenty of the latter. Saul Alinsky. Howard Zinn. Cornel West. Angela Davis. It’s a long, long list.

If you read enough of the Old Testament and pay attention, you notice that the rotten leaders show up after the people have persistently turned their back on God and ignored His minor chastisements.

My conclusion is that our narcissistic and indulgent culture has exchanged God's gifts for intoxication and sexual perversion, pretending we're in control and there are no consequences for our actions, and have no need of God.

If we want change its time to pray and repent, because we're not going to elect our way out of this mess.

Rachel Carson. Her overblown hysteria against DDT has allowed malaria to kill at least 60 million people to date, a death toll greater than Hitler or Mao.

As I’ve said before I can’t fathom an egomaniac like McCain who clearly would have sacrificed one of his kids to Baal to be elected President would act as a “ringer”. He didn’t run a winning race cause he’s a RINO idiot and pussy who didn’t want the media to hate him for going after the Black guy. Even the mild extent to which he did earned him lasting scorn from his base (reporters). I don’t understand why that’s harder to believe than your “He must have lost on purpose”. People are stupid, weak animals and stupidity and weakness are always more likely than grand conspiracies that would have to involve countless people. And the same goes for Mitt, this prick had daddy issues, daddy got embarrassed and he needed to win for daddy, he’d have dipped his balls in sulfuric acid before he’d lose on purpose.

However Chesse Puff, I completely dismiss your “Obama was destined to win” malarkey, which is just that. That kind of fatalistic nonsense might make you feel better about losing but not me. The future is not writ, and while we may not know what or be able to do what is needed to achieve the outcome we want, there’s usually a way, in studying defeats we can learn how to avoid them next time.

Bammy won for 2 reasons

1)The economy was in the potty
2)McPain ran a crummy race

#1 is big and it’s hard for the incumbent party to hang on in that circumstance because voters are desperate, grasping troglodytes prone to reacting like rats in a maze.

But that doesn’t mean a good candidate running a strong race couldn’t have beaten Obama. The funny named cipher was “inspirational” cause that’s what the media told people he was. What McPain needed to do was deconstruct that crap and rip out his throat with savage attacks on that worthless cokehead. Trump showed how to do that 8 years later against other anointed piece of poo poo.

As for Bush, he was garbage and a major cause of aforementioned economic sanitation situation. But he can hardly be blamed for the 2008 candidates, there were plenty of them, I don’t know what kind of “planting” you expected “farmer Bush” to do. Other than replacing Cheney with a successor type there wasn’t much he could have done on that front. I wish would have vetoed the bailouts and crap, that was something in his power. Running against the bailout might have been the ticket to GOP success that year.

I wanted Mark Sanford to run in 2008, which I soon discovered would have been a disaster. The candidates that ran were crap, I understand why freepers were hardcore for Fred Thompson despite his poor position in the polls. There’s no one to blame, except all of our candidates and our own voters for not demanding better candidates than The Clap (McCain) Crabs (Huckabee) Syphilis (Rudy) and Chlamydia (Mitt).

I’m not sure Jarrett is that important. In the end she was just an adviser and if she had dropped dead, 10 more scumbags would have been ready to take her place and whisper the same things in Obama’s floppy dumbo ears.

And while radicalism in education is a HUGE problem, I’m not sure so much of the blame for can be given to any one person, let alone Ayers.

Yes. RINO before the acronym.

Still the left hates him.

This has entirely forgotten the impact of his Progressive Education and promotion of secular humanism that has absolutely ruined our public education system. He should be way up there, maybe number one for ruining our children.
