all_that_juice posted...George Bush ranked 2nd worst president of all time behind Nixon.
Jackson is considered one of the best presidents by quite a few people, actually.
I thought the worst president of all time was Ulysses S. Grant? At least that's what I keep hearing.
Burn-the-light posted...American politics confuses me, so glad I'm English where the political voting system is simple. Vote Conservative, wait for them to f*** the country up. Vote Labour, wait for them to get blamed for not fixing the country fast enough. Vote Conservative... Rinse and repeat.
Conservatives in the US get blamed for a lot of the things that the Liberal Democrats do.
For example, Bush Sr ("read my lips, no new taxes") vetoed the Democrats in Congress tax increases when they submitted a budget. He vetoed 3 times, but each time the News media attacked him for "not caring"....so he eventually signed it. Then the same news media attacked him for not keeping his promise to not raise taxes.
And George Bush (senior & junior) was the only Republican within the 3 branches of Government...
The Democrats controlled the Congress & the Senate for the last 6 years of his presidency.
So no, the Conservatives do NOT screw up as often as the Democrats do...
And the politics & politicians of the UK are NOT the same as they are in the US.
The politicians in the UK are geared more towards Socialism.
So if there is any party that is like the politicians of the UK (Socialists) then it lies with the Democrats, who also want an ever expanding Government that adopts Socialist policies.
Most (not all) Republicans & Conservatives are Constitutionalists...which means that they want to adhere to the Constitution and limit the size of the Government.
Democrats want to do away with the Constitution because it's purpose is to limit what Government does, which contradicts with their policies of a Government that is in charge of everything.
That's not to say that Bush didn't screw up, because he did.
He screwed up with No Child Left Behind (NCLB), with FEMA, with bailing out corporations (which Obama did also), plus he raised the debt quite a bit with overall Govt spending. But keep in mind that Bush had to work with a Democrat controlled Congress & Senate.
But the fact remains that Obama did all that Bush did in terms of screwing up, but did it twice as much and in half the time.
Under Obama the unemployment doubled, as did the number of people on Welfare...and he nearly tripled the debt in 4 years.
The vast majority of green energy companies that Obama gave Billions to have also since filed for bankruptcy, so that money is gone and will never be recouped.
Obama replaces both Bush & Nixon as the "worst president ever"...
And you conveniently neglected to mention Jimmy Carter, who was actually even worse, and Obama is tied with him as being the worst.
Hey... I'm Canadian so I don't give a flying hoot, I have Frenchy Hitler here to worry about.
Are you refering to this POS?
Well at Gamestop you can get a rubber ducky, a water gun, or a pirate sleeve Wii bundle.
if smart people play halo.... then those smart people will have voted early.
....what am I saying, nerds don't vote! they complain and never vote for change.

Do you like Carolina BBQ or Kansas City BBQ more, sundevil?
In my opinion, not enough people have looked their dinner in the eyes and considered the circle of life. This is your dinner. His name is Tom.
Tube_of_Noob posted...God I hate politics. They are all crooks that care about their own pockets not "the people." Romney is a slick corproate son of a gun who is interested in helping his friends and Obama is an Uncle Tom whos in over his head and has no real experience in governing anything. It really is lose lose for Americans. Wheres Teddy Rosevelt when you need him. Now thats a ****in leader!
Oh yes, because giving to charity makes a person so good and they'd never kick a dog or anything like that.
I don't care what sort of person he is, what I care about is how he's going to get this country out of debt and fix the problems we have. He has yet to give a solid answer on this. From the looks of things, he's just going to run us further into debt than we already are.
More than any other election this one definitely is voting for the lesser of two evils. Both candidates suck.

According to that poll, Grant is pretty popular.
Besides advocating extending voting rights to all white men, I don't see how anyone could like Jackson. The man was a monster. Even if you wanted to hand wave his views and policies towards blacks and Native Americans, he still has to answer for his promotion of cronyism in politics.

In that case, it's kinda hard to vote for Obama, since he's proven over the last four years his abilities as president suck. And I'm not a big fan of Romney either, but at least he isn't Obama. >.>
