The War on Poverty was destructive in so many ways.

Wilson.....
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

“You can go to live in France, but you can't become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany, but you can't become a German... But anyone, from any corner of the world, can come to live in the United States and become an American.”

Wilson.....
Agreed, but the article talks about post-1930s presidentes. Who was worse of that lot, FDR or LBJ?

LBJ.... At least FDR had a coherent war policy....

Given the constraint - "worst president since the early 1930s"  - contained in the article we must, IMHO,  choose between FDR, Jimmiah CAAATA,  LBJ, and Obama!

Obama wins that one HANDS DOWN.  Jimmiah CAAATA takes second and LBJ third.

There have been worse than Obama believe it or not but that was prior to 1930 and thus excluded from this one!

Theodore or Franklin??  Teddy Roosevelt was one of the big Proggressive Presidents and seized more land on behalf of the Federal Park Service than any other President up to that time among other things.

Wilson has his own special place in hell for the unique damage he personally wrought on the US Constitution.  LBJ has his special place in hell for founding the continuing downfall of the black population in this Country, as proven by the recent revelation that there are more abortions than live births in the New York black community, for one example among many.

And Abraham Lincoln has a special place in hell for having opened wide the door through which every progressive since has walked!

He walked all over our Constitution and we have a monument to him in Washington!  Pathetic!

How about every single Supreme Court Justice how has sat on the Court for the last Century and systematically helped the Democrats undo the Checks and Balances??  I hope they burn them head first in flaming iron pits....

Actually I lay that at the feet of congress the members of which do not fully understand the powers given them under the Constitution.

Wow.  What a weird opinion you have re: Lincoln.  Do you still favor segregating schools, too?

I'd like to know why you are so critical of Lincoln.  You brought him up.

Johnson's presidency went down in flames because it could never live up to his own irresponsibly exalted standards. Despite what his apologists may think and hope, the damage to his reputation can't be erased by distracting attention from Vietnam, which was only one aspect of a multifaceted failure.

The only thing distinguishing Obama from LBJ is the color of his skin.  Obama will never face such criticism because of the color of his skin; he is the antithesis of everything MLK Jr. stood for.

Obama and LBJ and MLK, Jr. all worshiped big government.

I read it.  It was simplistic.  I'd like some further explanation for why you hold that view.

I hold that view because the historical record on it is VERY clear! He walked all over the Constitution early and often and Obama is following his lead!

OK then.  Reminding myself to never take any of your posts seriously from this point forward.
