    Smile One line for every President you remember

    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!

    LBJ: "I shall not seek and I will not accept the nomination of my party as your President." (1968)

    JFK: "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." (1961 inaugural)

    Eisenhower: "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex." (1961 farewell speech)

    "i did not have sex with that woman - miss lewinsky" clinton

    " We need to spread the wealth around" Obama


    "No, no. I have been practicing...I bowled a 129. It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something." Obama




    "sock it to ME?" Nixon

    and actually Nixon did say he was not a crook - the exact quote in an interview as:

    ""People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I've earned everything I've got."

    omg i sound like yardley

    DUDE!
    I’ll actept the first two and they are great quotes. While I never saw them live I have seen the Kennedy inaugural in class.
    BUT……. There is no way that Eisenhower quote “Pops” into your head. When I say Eisenhower, you instantly think all that???
    What really pops into your head? Words like unwarranted or Militaryindustrial just don’t pop….
    For me, it is “J. Edgar Hoover” That is the word association I have. Not that I was ever alive, just a student of history and that is the pop I get. Somehow they are connected in my mind.

    I will always remember LBJ with his distinctive Texas drawl saying " My fellow Americans...."

    You know, I do remember that. Now that I read it, I know your right. Was in an interview? He never did congressional testimony did he? Anyway, I remember Steve Martin impersonating Nixon. And yes, on occasion, now and again, you and Jeff do sound alike. Just your passions are opposite.

    GLADIOLAS!! Can't anyone deal with a housewife??!!

    Like your Nixon quote, Johnson may not have really said that, but its from the movie "The Right Stuff", and it also stuck.
