Sy Sperling. He was also a client.
Tucker Case - Tard magnet.
btw - I actually like Ford a great deal. If any member is near Grand Rapids, Michigan - his library and museum is a wonderful place to visit and you walk away with a great respect for the total career of the man. It is well worth a visit.
Turtle - you and I agree on Carter being a failure. LBJ could have achieved true greatness but was done in by Viet Nam.
As for Obama, I never decide who wins the game in the third inning.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
JFK didn't have time to do anything, but the US National currency might have prevented today's banking problem, and he was the first to have the CIA work against him. LBJ and civil rights was a real stroke, but didn't stop the Vietnam War. Nixon's overture to China was a real stroke and he also realized the CIA was working against him. Ford , mediocre at best. Carter, sabotaged from within, by both Republicans and CIA, tried to mitigate Global Warming and you never doubted his sincerity and honesty. Reagan, sock puppet, deficits, ship jobs overseas, absentee management of the intelligence services or else inept. Bush 1 had to be behind Iran Contra and maybe much more because this is the man who controlled the CIA. Clinton seemed effective, but still no jobs, but the eight year economy was real good and he tried to whack OBL.. Bush 2 screwed up everything he touched and he touched everything. Obama, at least he got one pick on the Court, but the Libya deal is just wrong. The bankers owe him, so he'll get a second term. Money talks. So for me, I like Carter's behavior.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
