She'll find a way to make that Bush's fault.

Whether it's $0 or $100 billion, that doesn't make Reagan a great president. Unless, you're also saying that Obama is also a great president.

Reagan was a hell of a lot better than Obama will ever be. The thing Obama will be most remembered for is making Jimmy Carter look competent.

I think the problem is good people don't want to be president. Who would? It's a thankless job. It costs millions to run. If the candidate doesn't have many millions of his/her own money to spend, they often borrow huge sums to run a campaign because fundraising doesn't seem to be enough. The notion that anyone can grow up to be president has never been less true, ironically, despite the fact that we now have the first Black president. When was the last time we had a nominee from a major party who was not a multi-millionaire? There is constant scrutiny from all sides, from the media, from armchair analysts of all persuasions. It's almost impossible to get anything done. You have to start running for re-election the minute you're elected and the pay isn't even that good. To top it off, you have to live above the shop.

By the way, was Reagan spayed or neutered?

That doesn't make a lot of sense. Are you saying it's all right that the president is an idiot, because the party couldn't come up with anyone else? As long as he's a rich idiot, he's the best candidate? Damn, and all this time I was voting on issues. What was I thinking?

I'm saying that the reason we have incompetent presidents, either Republicans or Democrats, is because good people are not running for president.

Probably neutered, you can't spay a male.
