In regards to Carter I really wish I was around and old enough to live through it. He seems like a good man but like you said maybe not experienced or knew how to deal with certain aspects of being the president. I personally think that even if you supported him or not that the time was a great learning experience that I wish I was apart of.

Carter was definitely elected on the backlash of the Nixon Ford presidencies, where the corruption was being spewed out everyday. But then you believed what Cronkite said on CBS or what you read in your hometown paper, I certainly dont remember Ford getting grilled 24/7 and he was VP from may be the most corrupt president of all. If you want politics that effect your daily lives look the local level from your congressman or woman on down to state,county and city politics those guys sometimes fly under the radar. Id say thats what Ive learned more than anything.

My first political memories are of John Kennedy or King Kennedy as he was known in our house. He had a little girl just a year older than me. Political identity. Lol.
The tragic loss of his life was compounded in my household as my grandmother who lived with us passed away within days of his assassination. My world was shattered. I was six.

Thanks... I was 10 and sent home from school when Kennedy was shot. We weren't sure at 1St if it wasn't the start of WW3 in the 1St reporting hours of chaos.

Thank you!

It always saddens me to see politicians hold such high regard in families house holds.

Kids should know how things work, but I don't think they should really have opinions of them until they are older and truly understand the nuances.

I just hate hearing about a kids life being rained on because of politics, they have nothing to do with the process. They have no effect on politics, so why should politics have any effect on them?

LOL. Mine was Ronald Reagan though I worked for Nixon's second campaign by volunteering to hand out bumper stickers and buttons. I was sixteen and he had a campaign office down the street from my house. Every day I'd walk down to the grocery store strip mall and get my supplies and then spend hours handing them out to shoppers. Or getting people to go inside and register to vote or get more information or make donations. They didn't pay but I got pizza from Anthony's just a few doors down more than a few times lol. Then school started up and I could only do it on Saturdays. But I was there through November and we had a party.

I was born in 1973 and I have the sneaking suspicion that everyone from Carter on (if not before) have all been controlled by exactly the same people. So as far as I'm concerned, the same guy has been in charge all my life.

And really, starting with Reagan, it's not so hard to believe, is it? Bush rode in on Reagan and W Bush rode in with HW Bush. There's substantial evidence that the Bushes and the Clintons are (and were always) in cahoots. Obama was probably a Clinton plant. Trump is a bit out of focus for now so we'll have to wait and see. He smells like tuna though.

So even if you exclude Trump, that's 36 years that were dominated by a small handful of people who seem to be very much the same.



I think you may be right.... And folks don't realize much about the presidents and their backgrounds.... and that affected their administrations.

Bush 1 was head of the CIA...
Carter-degree in Nuclear Physics(?)....
Reagan-Actor...
Ford-male model...
etc, etc, etc.....

Thanks a lot for replying!

All the above and corrected your mistake of putting Trump's last year as 2017
Now , you correct it

The worst terms
Jimmy Carter
Barry Soetero
Not necessarily in that order.

The best goes to
Ronald Reagan
Bill Clinton
Not necessarily in that order



Thanks. I didn't note Trump.... The list was taken off a poster on my wall in my studio. And, not clear who created it for proper crediting. Thanks a lot Gothmog! Best to ya! *

*ETA:I believe my list unlike the other... is chronologically correct

JFK onward.

BTW, Carter did not have a degree in nuclear physics. He had a general BS from the Naval Academy. He didn't get into anything physics until several years later, and that was just a naval technical school.

And at least every couple weeks Ford was tripping and falling down the stairs on Air Force 1!

Thanks for the input!

I was born under JFK and my list runs to present day.....To the poster above me......they all have been shady starting with George Washington.....right thru to present day . It's what degree of shady they are that's important. Clinton for instance could cast shade over an entire country. Let's just be honest...….only the shady venture into politics. Their all just teat suckers off the working class taxpayer.....that be me & you.

Truman was in office when I arrived brand new on Earth. Eisenhower, Nixon and Trump are noteworthy. Donald Trump the best of all.

I thought the same thing. If there's another route to learning I'd like to hear about it.
