    if you ever run into anyone who was on the 1980 Olympic team ask them

    one of my best friends is one of two men to have won the gold in Montreal and then again in LA. He noted that another athlete noted that when Carter croaks all of those olympians were going to become sprinters as they try to run the fastest to see who gets to piss on Carter's grave first.

    the crap that clown threatened guys I trained with is unbelievable and sadly was never discussed by the MSM

    I have you beat when it comes to worthless presidential ancestors

    Millard Fillmore (whose only achievement was returning an honorary degree (in latin) from Oxford noting that since he did not have the benefit of a "classical education" he could not read Latin and nothing would be more presumptuous than holding a degree he could not read)

    and William Henry Harrison-a great Indian fighter, he apparently caught pneumonia while giving an incredibly long winded speech after being elected and croaked shortly thereafter

    Yes, he was. If Johnson had gotten his way, slavery would have continued after the Civil War. Fortunately, Congress overrode his wishes. Think of it. After all that bloodshed and destruction, and we didn't at least end slavery.

    I voted Andrew Johnson yet James Buchanan was certainly a runner up ... think Dred Scott v. Sanford.
