Our Presidents.......the leaders, the vistionaries and the idiots.

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

                                                           Abraham Lincoln      

 

"A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."

                                                        Gerald R. Ford

 

"I know it's going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we're in. You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money."

                                                           George W. Bush

 

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people."

                                                          Theodore Roosevelt

                                                                              

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."

                                               Ronald Reagan

 

"I'm not a crook!"

                                                                                        Richard Nixon

 

 

                 

"A President needs political understanding to run the government, but he may be elected without it."

                                   Harry S. Truman

 

"A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."

                                    John F. Kennedy

 

"Americans... still believe in an America where anything's possible - they just don't think their leaders do."

                                   Barack Obama

 

"Don't forget what I discovered that over ninety percent of all national deficits from 1921 to 1939 were caused by payments for past, present, and future wars."                               Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."

                                      William J. Clinton

    I watched all the GOP and DNC debates before the last elections, and then listened to the President's speech on election night. After all the smoke finally dissipated out of my ass, I was then convinced that our nation is made up of three types of politicians. First; Realist that have all the answers. Second; The dumbfounded and confused. Third; The desperate and scared. There is also a fourth group which is growing every day and it is the composite of the other three groups.

                                                     Charlie 

 

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

                                                                             George Washington

 

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government. 

                                       Thomas Jefferson

    Perhaps those in Washington, DC should read this post. Maybe they’d learn a thing or two. Or maybe their heads are stuck so far up their butts that even a tobacco smoke enema wouldn’t force them to come out and face reality. Excellent post!

      Most don’t read unless it’s the comic section.

        I’m surprised that they even read anything! They’ve got people to do everything for them from reading, to getting them coffee and escorting them to the bathroom!

    Nice post. Good points. But – Nixon was never that good-looking!

      We’ve had a few dorks in office that could have used a nip and tuck.

        I think we’ve probably had more in that office that had a nip tuck than we’ll ever know!

    So, those of us with some sense left, we vote and hope and pray and buy lottery tickets.

      Odds seem to be better on the lottery.

        That’s my “retirement plan” since our “leaders” seem intent on destroying Social Security and not giving me all I’ve paid in since 19??.
