Quote
President
The only thing we have
to fear is fear itself
Ask not what your country
can do for you
Yes we can
I feel your pain
Tippecanoe and Tyler too
(campaign slogan)
Bring 'em on
We must guard against...
the military-industrial complex
The world must be made
safe for democracy
The price of freedom is
eternal vigilance *
Read my lips: no new taxes
Honey, I forgot to duck
... you can not fool all of the
people all of the time *
They misunderestimated me
I will build a great, great wall
on our southern border
I cannot tell a lie *
I'm not a crook
Quote
President
Ich bin ein Berliner
... a date which will live in infamy
I have always found that mercy bears
richer fruits than strict justice
It depends on what the
meaning of the word 'is' is
Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job
Speak softly and carry a big stick
A kinder, gentler nation
Four score and seven years ago...
They cling to guns or religion
Let us never negotiate out of fear.
But let us never fear to negotiate
If men were angels, no government
would be necessary
Facts are stubborn things
We in America today are nearer to the
final triumph over poverty than ever
before in the history of any land
I can't deny I'm a better ex-president
than I was a president
Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
The buck stops here (sign on desk)

@ Aesthus... maybe it would be funny, if it wasn't entirely by cynical, terrible, corrupt, disillusionment-inducing design. Look up gerrymandering. Then read about the electoral college. Then perhaps about Republican efforts to suppress voter turnout because they know very well that they can't win through democracy.

Republicans can't win through democracy...except in 1860, 1864, 1868, 1872, 1876, 1880, 1888, 1896, 1904, 1908, 1920, 1924, 1928, 1952, 1956, 1968, 1972, 1980, 1984, 1988, and 2004. And in 1960, 2000, and 2016, the electoral college was just there to make sure that California, New York, and south Florida alone didn't decide for the rest of the country who the next president would be. They gave us Kennedy when the majority voted for Nixon, don't forget.

The first time, the Republicans split their votes between Taft and Teddy Roosevelt (3rd term was legal back then). The second time, it was close, but California gave him the reelection over Charles Evan Hughes.

Teddy Roosevelt wasn't going for a third term, he was going for a second after his magical mystery safari while Taft kept his seat warm.

Took quiz again...100%! Well....there should have been "All men are created equal" on Abraham Lincoln's. I recently wrote part of the Gettysburg Address. Or maybe just the words Gettysburg Address. And please accept "GB" for George Bush.

Except that "all men are created equal" was from the Declaration of Independence which was written mostly by Thomas Jefferson. Lincoln referred to it in his speech.

Got 27. But I'm surprised that so many knew the "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" slogan was connected to Harrison — not a wildly significant president, no?. Must be something kids still learn in school?

He died after 32 days in office (and was sick most of those), but the significance of his "Hard Cider and Log Cabin" campaign overshadows his brief time in office. He was one of the first (after Jackson) to appeal to the common man voter.
