    They were also the only Presidents in my lifetime who were, unquestionably, honest. And how did we thank these honest public servants? We voted each of them out the next chance we got.

    Being an SOB is also a job requirement for being Mayor of New York. John Lindsay, Abe Beame and David Dinkins were nice guys, and they failed; Ed Koch and Rudy Giuliani were SOBs, and they had a bit more success. Then again, Mike Bloomberg has failed spectacularly, and he's no nice guy.

    Personally, I don't care if they're honest as long as they're effective at their jobs. Bill Clinton, for example, was a terrible excuse for a human being but a very effective President. I don't care who you ****, just do your job right!

    Being nice and being classy aren't always the same thing. Obama isn't classy, nor a good president.

    Or, as Bill Maher put it, "They think that if he cheats on his wife, he'll be like, 'Sorry, I gotta go fix the DUTCH budget deficit now!'"

    Best President since... well, Clinton. But how hard was that? All he had to do was accept the truth that conservatism doesn't work, and actually care about finding bin Laden.

    Classy? Classier than any President since... since... somebody wanna help me out here? At least JFK kept his unclassy moments out of the public eye.

    His inability to eliminate OBL (he had 3 chances) led directly to 9/11

    He dishonored the office by shoving a 23 year old intern under his desk to get a bjob ( he did this while even on the phone with world leaders)

    He had to negotiate welfare reform and other sound fiscal policies only after his attempts at UHC and tax increases failed and The Public handed him a humiliating political defeat. He robbed from the SS trust fund and left the economy in a recession when he left office.

    The fact that honesty and integrity don't matter to you speaks volumes about the content of your character

    How many chances did Bush have after 9/11? Before he decided that bin Laden "didn't matter."

    So you care more about who he has sex with than how he does his job?

    He had to negotiate welfare reform and other sound fiscal policies only after his attempts at UHC and tax increases failed and The Public handed him a humiliating political defeat. He robbed from the SS trust fund and left the economy in a recession when he left office.
    Next, you'll claim not to be a "Republican," though you give them all praise for everything good.

    The fact that honesty and integrity don't matter to you speaks volumes about the content of your character
    The content of my character? You don't even know who I am, and you have no idea the "content of (my) character." Though I guess being more liberal than you (which isn't hard) tells you everything you care about.

    No I didn't.....and not about the cost either. Can't get around the fact that ALL of Bush's totals were counted and Obama hasn't got to the end of his 8.

    Obama would have to spend about triple his yearly average in vacation time over the last 3 years and 3 months of his term to match Bush. This is an idiotic pissing contest.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
