    Richard Nixon presided over the largest portion of the Vietnam war, where was his "war stimulus"? Where was GW Bush's big boost from his Iraq folly? He left the economy on tatters. Face it.. Republicans talk a good game when they are not governing but when it comes to getting an economy off its feet they are the pits. Reagan would be an exception except that his "miraculous recovery" pooped out when his record spending increases did.

    Nixon ended the Vietnam war, which of course was begun by Democrats. There would have been no Vietnam War were Nixon President.His main argument against ending this war, begun by Democrats, was that Americans would lose credibility if they did not see it through. History has proven him absolutely correct.

    It wasn't a Libyan gas station either....

    Was the ambassador present?

    Was it considered American soil?

    Did the American Flag fly on the grounds?

    Sorry, your nit picking matters not.

    The average GDP growth during years with a Democratic President (5.1%) is nearly three times as great as those with a Republican President (1.8%). The average GDP growth during the entire administrations of these last 12 Presidents is also quite different. The four with the greatest average GDP growth are all Democrats: Roosevelt 6.4%, Truman 6.2%, Kennedy 5.7%, and Johnson 4.2%. The four Presidents whose administrations saw the weakest economic growth were all Republicans: Hoover -7.3%, Bush41 1.9%, Bush43 2.4%, and Eisenhower 2.7%. For simplicity, the economic growth of the entire term is associated with the elected President, for the unfinished terms of Roosevelt and Kennedy.

    The Congress ended the Vietnam war by withdrawing funds. Nixon had little to do with it. America lost all credibility by staying involved in a conflict even when it was obvious we could not win. Thanks tricky Dick.

    Of course economic growth is "irrelevant" to you. Your side is much more fond of recession. That's why Republicans have so many of them.

    Yeah right, democrats have been behind every economic disaster our country as faced.

    Of course only progressives look at who the president is at the time without realizing that congress plays a major role in our economy.

    It really baffles my ass how progressives refer to, or speak of presidents as dictator(s).

    Go watch some C-Span.

    Of course when we have a progressive in office such as Obamaclown that idiot tells congress to jump and progressive congressmen/woman say how high. Generally republicans don't do that.
