    With our good friend Barry Hussein Obama, the buck stops over there. Or there. It's still George Bush's fault. Or maybe it's the damn Frogs. See, blaming Frenchie isn't just a British game anymore!

    Truman would have taken to blame. He wouldn't have passed on to anyone and everyone else.

    I liked Truman. He was a bit before my time but I thought he was a pretty good POTUS.

    Do I agree with everything he had to say?? Nope. But then I don't agree with everything anyone says anyway.

    Truman was a Dem and what you have up there is exactly what I would expect a Dem to say about the Reps. Heck I would expect no less.

    I still think Truman was a hell of a guy and have nothing but the utmost respect for him both as an
    American and a POTUS.

    No you didn't. You like this "imagined" Truman..a made up guy that never existed.

    If he was running today..you'd call him a commie.

    That's what republicans were calling him back then..

    They hated his guts...and called him every name in the book.

    Think Truman just hopped in his car and drove himself back to Independence, MO after Ike was sworn in. A whole different world back in '53, huh?

    LOL Glad to know what you THINK I would do.

    I'm not a rep there smart guy. I'm an Indi and Truman was a good guy in my book. Don't agree with everything he said or did but I still like him.

    Sorry I dont' fit your stereotype. Guess you'll just have to deal with it there smart guy.
