You know that game when a person says a word or name and you say the first thing that pops into your head?
Ever play it with Presidents? I know Many of you can remember more than I can. I can vividly remember Nixon.
That was apparently when I became politically aware. My List and what I think of-
Nixon- “I am not a crook!” I know he did not say that, it was a Steve Martin skit. But it is what pops for me.
Ford- “I beg your pardon” First line of the cowboy song by Dolly somebody. Because of his pardon of Nixon.
Carter- “I have had lust in my heart” It was a Sunday talk interview. I remember asking my Grandmother
“What is lust?” it is a funny childhood memory.
Reagan- “Tear Down That Wall!”
Bush Sr.- “Read my lips, no new taxes!”
Clinton- “It depends on what your definition of “is”, is”
Bush Jr. “Nucular”
So come-on man! Who can go further back? Who has different pops? Lets have fun!
