    Why don't Republicans have any Great Historic ex-Presidents like Carter and Clinton?

    Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, all Republican, all decent presidents.

    • Indeed:

      Abe Lincoln; Freed the Slaves and preserved the Union. Was an outrageous thinker and speech writer.

      Teddy Roosevelt: Counciled "Speak softly and carry a BIG stick." He was the force behind the completion of the Panama Canal; the domestic agenda idea of the "Square Deal," and he signed the Antiquities Act on June 8, 1906 which set in motion our National Parks System.

      Dwight Eisenhower: He coined the phrase, and warned all of us warned of the irresponsible power of the military-industrial complex

      These guys were definitely good. And there's not a Rep alive today who can hold a candle to any of them. Not one. And it speaks to just how badly messed up today's Rep party is. It would be laughably sad if it wasn't for the fact they control one aspect of our national power. The Loonies are definitely in the house (to paraphrase a line in an old rock-n-roll song).
