    Re: Senate deal averts shutdown

    My first post t started with “live in the now”. Nearly every response started out with Reagan or Bush. NOW we are in debt up to our eyeballs, NOW we are on the verge of a double dip, NOW housing prices and starts are in the toilet, NOW we have a pres that just squandered 4 trillion dollars and NOW he wants even more and NOW we need to stop spending money we don’t have. Feel free to Google NOW, you guys obviously don’t know the meaning of the word.

    And you left out Carter.
    Carter was too recent and too obvious.

    I think they are all examples of how people need to learn the history of the United States before they make big proclamations about Obama being "the worst ever." When you look at the corruption of the Grant administration, the ineptitude of Johnson (or James Buchanan for that matter), and the sheer criminality of Nixon, you realize that Obama's got a LONG way to sink before he reaches those depths. As much of a disappointment his administration has been (and it's been a big one), he's just not up there. Yet.

    In recent years it's been noted that Grant actually did many positive things during his presidency. He just wasn't much for holding people accountable.
