Summoner101: RedPhoenix122: Because of that, and also because he is in the top two best American presidents, Reagan's example is worth studying.

Who is number 1? W? Nixon? Jesus?

So giving her the benefit of the doubt, that still means Washington or Lincoln isn't in the top two.


Why would Lincoln be in the top 2, particularly? Is the quality of a president somehow proportional to the percentage of Americans killed on their watch or something? Or is it being killed that does it? I know that being assassinated somehow got JFK's realistically somewhat disastrously incompetent presidency promoted to awesome in many history books.

Not that Reagan was particularly brilliant, but your selection of presidents to lionize appears to be no less arbitrary.

I believe it's somewhat related to the Emancipation.

Just a guess, there was rain?

The only Republican to defeat a sitting president in the last century was Ronald Reagan in 1980, when he beat Jimmy Carter, the second-worst president in U.S. history (pending the final results of Obama's second term).

Weaver95: How many more votes would Romney have gotten by being a rude, condescending jerk? Sure, it worked for Obama, but he was the incumbent.

Obama was 'rude'? um...ok but I don't see it.


President Obama was a rude, condescending jerk.

Mitt Romney was a savvy, aggressive debater who refused to "just lie down"

Spot the spin!!

/damn liberal media!!!

I'm assuming the chick in the corner is supposed to be Ann. The general horsey-facishness looks like her.
Now why she was supposed to have been supporting Obama I don't know, but obviously she's a sellout turncoat RINO.


One thing is certain as particular Conservative illustrator doesn't care for her.

graggor: New York right now has 6.1 million people voting in 2012 but had 7.6 million vote in 2008.
New Jersey has 3.465 million people voting in 2012 but had 3.8 million people in 2008.

In those two states they are missing 2 million votes from 2008...I wonder why.


Don't break anything internal trying to figure it out.

Wow, my jaw dropped while reading that.

Then Ann Coulter tried to shove her cock into my open mouth, and it clamped back shut.

Ann, we get it, you really liked Romney. I'm not saying you don't have a point, but you are really grasping when you say things like "The only Republican to defeat a sitting president in the last century was Ronald Reagan in 1980, when he beat Jimmy Carter, the second-worst president in U.S. history (pending the final results of Obama's second term)." .... and we only time a Democrat beat a sitting president during that time was with George Bush I, and he wasn't really that bad of a President. He had just won a war for farks sake and he was Saint Ronnie's legacy. So what's your point?

Your point is every time Republicans loose you say it was 'normal' or 'expected' like you did in 2006 when you said the total reversal of both the house and senate to Democrats was 'less than expected' for a midterm election on a President's second term (totally ignoring, 1998 of course).

The fact is there is a lot of things that lost Republicans the election, mostly the issues in my opinion. Though you can't ignore a President/Vice President team getting TROUNCED in every 'home state' they had and a Mormon bishop getting less of the vote that Bush in 2004.

clambam: That line about Reagan being one of thje top two presidents bugged me too. If she'd said top five, or top two of the 20th century, I might cut her some slack, but... better than Jefferson? Better than Teddy Roosevelt? Better than Andrew Jackson? Better than either Washington or Lincoln? What that kind of comment reveals is a profound ignorance of history, both on the part of Ms. Coulter and of her audience.


Top five Republican Presidents:
5. Reagan
4. Reagan
3. Reagan
2. Romney, assuming an alternate reality where Obama decides not to steal the election with Chicago cronyism and voter fraud
1. Reagan

Didn't Reagan secretly sell weapons to our enemies even after congress wrote legislation specifically to prevent just such a thing? Didn't Reagan use the profits from that sale to further the drug war in South America? Didn't Reagan "not remember" any of this happening just years later? Why does anyone give Reagan any respect at all again?

He kept virtually countless BrylCreem employees economically viable. Still, it was a short term answer to the long term quandary that comes from a highly gelled and blow-styled neck-of-head electorate not being able to choose between Playmobil or Feathered.

He's the only Republican president since WW2 that didn't either lose his re-election or leave office with hilariously low opinion polling. Who else are they gonna deify?

Here i can some up why Romney lost in landslide in one sentence:
"The GOP, after decades of moving to the far right, lost any and all appeal to moderates they once had."

Eisenhower left with low opinion polling? Didn't know that.
