The Presidents of the United States (UPDATE)

Please indulge me while I paraphrase President Kennedy's inaugural address which was delivered forty-eight years ago today, January 20, 1961:

Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans; born in the second half of the twentieth century....

Well, now!
Here's some change you can really believe in, baby! By the time the sun sets late this afternoon, Barack Hussein Obama will have been sworn in as the forty-fourth president of the United States of America.

As a public service, I have elected to post this updated version of a list of the forty-three men who have served in the office (Although Obama is the Forty-fourth president to be elected, he is actually only the forty-third person to hold the job. Grover Cleveland is the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms and is usually counted twice. Go figure).

So here is the new and
much improved listing of the Presidents of the United States:

1. George Washington
2. John Adams
3. Thomas Jefferson
4. James Madison
5. James Monroe
6. John Quincy Adams
7. Andrew Jackson
8. Martin Van Buren
9. William Henry Harrison
10. John Tyler
11. James K. Polk
12. Zachary Taylor.
13. Millard Fillmore
14. Franklin Pierce
15. James Buchanan
16. Abraham Lincoln
17. Andrew Johnson
18. Ulysses S Grant
19. Rutherford B. Hayes
20. James A. Garfield
21. Chester A. Arthur
22. Grover Cleveland
23. Benjamen Harrison
24. Grover Cleveland
25. William McKinley
26. Theodore Roosevelt
27. William Howard Taft
28. Woodrow Wilson
29. Warren G. Harding
30. Calvin Coolidge
31. Herbert Hoover
32. Franklin D. Roosevelt
33. Harry S Truman
34. Dwight D. Eisenhower
35. John F. Kennedy
36. Lyndon B. Johnson
37. Richard M. Nixon
38. Gerald R. Ford
39. James E. Carter
40. Ronald Reagan
41. George H.W. Bush
42. William Jefferson Clinton
43. George W. Bush
44. Barack Obama

I did that from memory. Aren'cha impressed? I knew you would be!

God bless you, President Obama. I don't envy you, pal, that's for damned sure!. You've got one heck of a mess to clean up. Good luck.

"Fondly do we hope - fervently do we pray - that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue, until the wealth piled by the bondman's two-hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash, shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three-thousand years ago, so still it must be said 'the judgments of the Lord, are true and righteous altogether'....With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations."

Abraham Lincoln
Second Inaugural Address
March 4, 1865

Shameless liberal propaganda. ENJOY!

I belive the #44 will become a number that will be remembered as a good one. Two fours = eight and *THAT* is infinity.

And, so, our hope must be also.

Former President George W. Bush.

Keep saying it over and over:

Former President George W. Bush.

Someone pinch me!

It is now 2:37PM, Tuesday, January 20, 2009. Barack Obama has been president for slightly over two and a half hours. Is this a great day to be an Amewrican, or what?

Wow !! In spite of my cynicism toward the establishment I believe Barack Obama is a good man who will attempt to bring all Americans together to work for the common good. During his campaign I suggested to his people that he create a " Secretary of Citizens' Affairs " to help keep people informed and involved in government. What he IS doing is keeping in touch with his supporters through e-mails and keeping the grassroots movement he began alive. He easily could have have lost all those e-mail addys and withdrew from contact and citizen involvement. I wish him luck and may God ( if there is one ) be with him.

Good night America.

WOW!! The big day is done! And once again, when the circus is over, they send in the Black Guy to clean up after the elephants!!!

I hope he brought a spare shovel, because THIS mess is not going away soon!

Word is buzzing around that if Obama doesn't drag Pork Pie off to the house of many doors for his role in the torture of Enemy Combatants, the UN is going to step in and do something about it!

We might get that perp walk yet! And fluorescent orange is SOOOOOOO George Bush's color!
