    The doctor says I have 20 years left, but the latter years won't be good. I won't be able to type, for one thing. Let's meet back here in 10 years and reassess the situation. My bet is, Carter will come out on top for his domestic and energy policy efforts, Bush will come out on bottom in all categories.

    Bush like Nixon, will be remembered for being deceitful, his clumsiness, etc. People really only started feeling bad for Nixon until after he died, and really that wasn't much either. I would say really all things considered Nixon wasn't to horrible when you take away the scandalous part and the fact that there are tapes of him plotting on how to make things better for insurance companies, Watergate, etc.

    Bush I think we would definitely have to wait until he has passed on.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
