Trump Was Just Officially Ranked America's Worst President Ever
Congratulations! What an accomplishment!
Congratulations! What an accomplishment!
A chart created by three renowned economists shows what "trickle down" economics has done to average Americans since 1980.
Who needs "Starve the beast" when you can give it Mad Cow disease instead?
It's a comforting lie that conservatives tell themselves to justify their racism, cruelty and general obnoxiousness.
The so-called "most powerful man on earth" is terrified of the press.
Who didn't see this coming?
A foreign policy based on terrorizing the world? What could possibly go wrong?
If he had, they'd be deporting him to Kenya right now.
"Your glib and horrifying comment about "Second Amendment people" was heard around the world. It was heard by sane and decent people who shudder at your fondness for verbal violence."
You really do gotta love this guy.
For a guy who supposedly didn't like him, Dutch ended up in a lot of pictures with Trump.
"We have been otherwise engaged with what can only be described as feces throwing primates masquerading as a political party on the other side of the aisle and the mass movement of conspiratorial idiocy they have spawned."
Here are some of the complaints that conservatives have made against President Obama, and how Ronald Reagan was way better than NOBAMA in every single way.
Going against the gospel word of Ronald Reagan is considered a cardinal sin in conservative circles -- a sin busily being committed as Republicans denounce President Obama for wanting to nominate a supreme court justice to fill the vacancy left by Justice Scalia.
On the sizzling heels of Senator Ted Cruz's (R-TX) victory in Monday night's Iowa caucuses, there has been a rush by the media to topple the candidacy of Iowa runner-up Donald Trump like some gold-plated, questionably-coiffed Saddam Hussein statue. For Trumpians looking for comfort beyond Microsoft conspiracy theories, history has some hope for them.
The leading voies who are trashing President Obama securing the freedom of four U.S. prisoners from Iran this weekend, including former Marine Amir Hekmati, Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, and Pastor Saeed Abedin have tied themselves in knots expressing happiness at the release of the prisoners, while explaining that Obama is still a bad, bad man whose just implemented nuclear deal in no way opened the door to this positive development, or to the quick release of 10 U.S. sailors who accidentally encroached into Iranian waters last week.
President Obama is taking copious grief for waiting to congratulate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his reelection victory, and well he should. Ronald Reagan never would have waited a few days to make that call, would he?
Republicans are rather generous in their interpretation of the Logan Act now that 47 GOP senators are being accused of violating it, but in 1984, Ronald Reagan accused Rev. Jesse Jackson of the same thing, and you'll never guess why.
As John Kerry and Barack Obama struggle to get a nuclear pact with Iran, and Obama reviews hostage procedures, it's worth remembering a president who knew how to get a deal done.
It's curious how conservatives continue to harshly judge Obama over facts that were much more true of their idol, Ronald Reagan.
That felt good, didn't it?
Based on the leading economic indicators, President Obama's record on the economy is actually much stronger than Ronald Reagan's record.
Here's a series of harrowing events from the 1980s, along with the comparatively AWESOME optics from Ronald Reagan, the now-sainted chief executive.
Out of ideas in the present, the Republican Party instead offers Reagan, and soon even that will lose its appeal.
Conservatives like Joe Scarborough who decry Obama's decision to stick to his schedule should recall the time the Gipper rode horsies through the downing of a passenger jet, a Marine barracks bombing, and a hurricane.
While it's true that 33% of respondents in Quinnipiac's poll rated Obama the Worst President Since World War II, CNN ignored the fact that the result was driven entirely by self-pitying white people.
President Carter told Thom Hartmann, "I don't think that George W. Bush won the election in 2000 against Al Gore because I think that he probably lost Florida, and also nationwide. But, you know, when the Supreme Court rules in our country, that's what we have to accept."
The president shook hands with Raul Castro, brother of Cuba's Fidel Castro, and the far-right, on cue, proceeded to crap its cage. So here we go again. Photos of other U.S. presidents and political leaders meeting with and shaking the hands of other enemies/villains/commies/dictators...
The cognitive dissonance within the tea party is already notorious (I'll have more tomorrow morning). Yesterday, for example, Sarah Palin quoted Ronald Reagan during her remarks at the rally near the World War II memorial in Washington, DC yesterday. So if we're bringing Reagan into this fracas, let's see what the former president had to say about raising the debt ceiling.
The conviction of former Guatemalan dictator Efrain Rios Montt on charges of genocide against Mayan villagers in the 1980s has a special meaning for Americans who idolize Ronald Reagan. It means that their hero was an accessory to one of the most grievous crimes that can be committed against humanity.
