  •  You stole that idea from George W. Bush (0+ / 0-)

    And I don't mean that as a compliment.

    History is NOW. He is being judged as we speak. Legitimately. Who else but his contemporaries are in a better spot to judge the job he's doing as President?

    Oy. So many words, pixels, little understanding.

      Contemporary judgements are notorious for being off the mark.

      When the US purchased Alaska from Russia it was ridiculed as "Seward's Folly". No one laughs at Seward anymore. Lincoln was considered incompetent, devious and malicious by many of his contemporaries. Hardly the present day assessment.

      I've no idea how the President will be judged by future generations, but I know that judgement will be based on the long term impact of his policies on them, not on the political passions of today.

      Nothing human is alien to me.

    •  No, I "stole it" from the history books I've read. (0+ / 0-)

      I also understand that regardless of what I think about any of the presidents, those who come after me will surely use their own judgment, not mine. Perhaps you should go into the fortune telling business? Always lots of people ready to believe the claims of those who say they know for certain the future.

      Geez. So much stupidity, pixels, little common sense.

      The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.
