Veritas, after reading numerous lefty posts on how the Republicans are entirely at fault for just about everything that's wrong with this country, I'm having a hard time keeping a straight face to your saying that party doesn't matter, that it's the MAN you're concerned about.

billgrr: "All my questions that are posed to Lorexxxamay are answered by locomotive.

I just can't figure that out."

I suppose this deflection of yours is supposed to wipe out my question about your use of two words to describe lorexxx's deflections.

"shuck and jive"

Are those two words NOT objectionable anymore, because you used them, billgrrr?

And I'd even welcome an answer from namexxx right about now, as long as my question about the two words gets answered.

Oh, and I forgot. What documentaries you watch as well. Thanks for that, Veritas.

"....and what pray tell will the Republicans be remembered for?"

billgrr, it depends on who you talk to and what you read, right? The same answer applies when asking "....and what pray tell will the Democrats be remembered for?"

Pretty simple.

billgrr says: "Instead of doing your usual shuck and jive deflections..."

I reply: "billgrr, I thought these words were off-limits. They aren't now, because you're using them?"

Then billgrr says: "You are lorexxamay now?"

So I have to be lorexxx...amaybe...whatsit...whozat in order to comment on the words billgrr uses to describe "deflections?"

Aren't the words supposed to be objectionable when used?

Veritas, you can't say that the Democrat party did not use a previous Republican presidency to further the ends of their own campaigns in our most recent elections.

I heard a gazillion times how everything has been Bush's fault for years, and how in 2008, if McCain was elected, and how in 2012, if Romney was elected, both men would continue Bush's policies, in spite of each man's individual campaign platforms in both elections.

Not the party? Maybe for some, but for others, it is the forest, the trees, the kit and kaboodle.

The only documentary I saw a bit of recently was the PBS one on Reagan. Interesting it was. However, my point, about every president being second-guessed and having his motivations, actions and decisions gone over with a fine-tooth comb by friend and foe alike after he's out of office, remains the same.

Not a one of them has been pure and clean as the wind-driven snow.

Also, to say that Clinton's legacy is only tarnished by escapades in the Oval Office is a narrow interpretation of his presidency, to say the least. There have been others to say more about Pres. Clinton. They can be referred to as desired.

It is interesting that many lefties on here are very willing to promote responsibility in presidents. Why does it appear that "presidential responsibility" starts with Republican presidents and ends before Democrat presidents?

Wait, I guess someone mentioned LBJ. (My bad on that one.)

Oh, I've got it now. billgrr thinks lorexxx's posts are based in imagination and lies (his take), so he's going to show lorexxx & all of us exactly how imagining and lying are to be done properly.

Is that the game now?

lorexxx, why feed the bears?

It doesn't matter what anyone else says about any subject. Another poster had it right about billgrr. He's "right" and the rest of us "wanna be" but that's only in his eyes. So don't worry...be happy!

Egregiously salivating? All because of "Hubris?"

Is there another source confirming the book's statements? Or is that one book enough?

What president's decisions have completely passed muster, after examining his "motives" years later?

Which president's record has remained free from the second-guessers' conclusions, in the years after his term in office?

Short answer: none.

And newsflash: all U.S. presidents thus far have been human, and not infallible. I'd expect "stuff" to come up in any president's biography because of that fact. Even future biographies--of the next Republican president, in case you're thinking of someone else. :-)

I can't afford a vacation to those two locales either, so where's the "N/A" option?

My comment on the President and Africa has no intended racial divisions, I am so not prejudice that I always forget that some people are. There was a good interview with Bill Gates on TV today is where that thought came from.

Bill, I hope everybody understands that the Bush family business is oil, I had nothing to do with putting them in position to protect their American interests.

Lets send the President to Africa to help Bill Gates get a computer in every house over there. That should keep him busy for awhile. Mr Gates feels it is one of every persons human rights to have to agree with Western ways. Wazooo!!

I think he should look into working vacations, come out here to ND and spend 12 hours outside working in the winter. President Jimmy Carter does actually help people now days, we sure have allot of out of work living Presidents.
