Quotations by U.S. Presidents


In running with the theme of Inaugural week, I think some quotes from past presidents are in order. I have always loved quotations from various people. I even like to read quotations from celebrities because it shows that most of them are complete idiots. I'm looking forward to posting some quotes from President Obama in the future. I have a feeling he is going to give us a few to dwell upon in the years to come.

“I have no regret for any public act of my life, and history will vindicate my memory.”--President James Buchanan [President Buchanan had the unfortunate task of directly preceding President Lincoln. He left a mess for him as “W” left for the Anointed One. I think I have to disagree with President Buchanan in that history would vindicate his memory. He is largely a footnote insofar as U.S. Presidents go.

“History teaches perhaps few lessons. But surely one such lesson learned by the world at great cost is that aggression unopposed becomes a dangerous disease.”--President Jimmy Carter—[I have to say this quote surprises me since it comes from one of the most pacifist presidents we have ever had.]

“May we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
(May 1954, New York City)”--President Dwight Eisenhower—[I hope the Obama cult members read this one.]

“Truth is the glue that holds government together.”--President Gerald Ford--[That must be why the federal government stays in a constant state of chaos. Truth is a foreign element in government.]

“It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war.”
--President John F. Kennedy--[So very true. I hope President Obama realizes this. Decimating our military will only make our enemies bolder.]

“Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.”
--President Ronald Reagan--[I fear we are about to discover this truth the hard way under the Obama Administration.]
