107. The Buck Stops here - Truman
Edited on Fri May-07-04 12:00 AM by BrotherBuzz
I've been corresponding with the Harry S. Truman Library and I get a real kick out of the fact that their postal meter stamp uses that line. George, you could learn something if you only knew how to read.

On edit: I was born during Truman's lame duck period - after the November 1952 election, but before Eisenhower was inaugurated.

8. Kennedy....
1962. I would venture to say he was a damn sight better than the current occupant. Can you imagine Shrub handling the Cuban Missle Crisis? He would have said 'bring it on' and the Russians woulda!
What a moran!

18. Lyndon Johnson
I recall prior President's being statesmen. With the exception of Nixon, they believed the office itself and what it represented was more important than them as an individual. The only difference between Nixon and W is Dick's IQ was about 40 points higher.

26. Eisenhower
but I had to look to make sure.

I remember being in 3rd grade when a "hall monitor" came in and whispered in the teacher's ear. My teacher put her head down and started crying then told us JFK had been assassinated.

I saw Bobby Kennedy the day (or the day before) he was shot as his motorcade when to the Sacramento Airport.

I remember Nixon pulling off his re-election while people (including me) marched in the streets against the war.

I remember Reagan as Governor of California gutting the education system and the mental health system, then going on and doing it to the whole nation.

I remember walking out of a restaurant at lunch time and seeing a anti war protest coming down the road against Gulf One and getting arrested that day for joining. I remember my "pals" at the bar refusing to speak to me for months because of it.

I don't remember much about him. I remember Kennedy more. Needless to say, both were about 1,000,000 times better than Fuckface.

Harry S Truman. Note, he never used a period after his middle initial, because the "S" didn't stand for anything.

53.  Not enough time for my rememberances ....Being in the autumn of
my years, I think JFK had it all and if he had lived
there would be a different America. Had brother
Bobby lived it would have been even better. Sadly
the Gods weren't with us and since then it has been
all downhill....FDR was a wonderful President and
gave this country so much, however; Eleanor was
my mentor.....and I'm old....enough said. :)

I too had some old 8mm movies with JFK campaigning in Ohio in the summer of 1960 which I donated to the 6th Floor Museum in Dallas. I'm sure they would be interested in your home movies.

85. Johnson. Proud and happy to be born during the admin. of a Democrat.
Even if it was Johnson. Johnson and Nixon were two sides of the same coin; two remarkable, gifted men brought low by their insecurities and paranoia. Two men who engaged in tawdry, excessive abuses of power in order to secure their hold on that very power. And lost it for that reason.

born in 58, my earliest memory is of the day Kennedy was assasinated. I was 5 but I can still see the room I was in when my mom got the call. There is no comparison. Shrub is by far the worst President in my lifetime.
