Timely thoughts on retiring from the office of president

Post by Bill in Oregon »

Every day the increasing weight of years admonishes me more and more that the shade of retirement is as necessary to me as it will be welcome. Satisfied that if any circumstances have given peculiar value to my services, they were temporary, I have the consolation to believe that, while choice and prudence invite me to quit the political scene, patriotism does not forbid it.

Don't kid yourself, while George might come off as a patriot, he was still just as power hungry as the next president, and the next, and the next, ad nauseum! And it's only gotten worse! :roll:

George was a patriot, no doubt about it. He served the cause of freedom, gave his all, retired and died way too young. He set an example few of his predecessors even tried to follow.

I really irritated one of my snowflake nephews one time by saying that the closest to George Washington I knew of, in terms of being president during horrific national stress, and trying to do ethical things, was good old Donald Trump. Certainly no saint, and I have my criticisms of his policies and him as a person - but compared to the ones I've remembered (LBJ to present), Reagan was the only other one I felt very genuine and honest. Besides, it was fun to watch a snowflake meltdown by saying that, for sure... :D

Speaking of integrity - I am a HUGE Clarence Thomas fan....

Funny how the 'incluuuuusive' and 'tollllllllerant' libtards who insist they are so 'progresssssssive', just HATE Thomas, and the cognitive dissonance just fries their little libtard brains - a genuine black man who isn't a step-n-fetch-it 1930's character, which is what the Democrats think black people are supposed to be - nice obedient little political-pawns. The 'liberals' cannot wrap their heads around the concept that a black man can be intelligent and courageous and understand the Big Picture and the Constitution and so on.
