Republican Presidential Factoid Of The Day

I pointed this out yesterday afternoon on Twitter, and it’s something amazing to consider.

It’s true too. The first Republican Administration since Herbert Hoover’s, of course, was Dwight Eisenhower, and from 1952 to 1956 Richard Nixon was Vice-President of the United States. The next time Republicans were in the White House, Nixon himself was President until he resigned in 1974. During the two years of the Ford Administration, George H.W. Bush served as Ambassador to China and C.I.A. Director after having served Chairman of the Republican National Committee during the final year of Nixon’s time in office. During the Reagan Administration, of course, the senior Bush served as Vice-President and then four years as President himself. Finally, the last Republican President before Donald Trump was George W. Bush.

Here’s hoping that the Trump Administration doesn’t mean eighty years of Trumps in the White House in one capacity or the other, eh?

    You needn’t worry, as there won’t be eight years of Trump in the White House, much less eighty…

    I’m pretty sure Nixon was veep until ’61. If not, then this begs the questions – which Nixon or Bush *was* in the administration in the late 50s? 😉

    So for GOP prez since 1988 we have Nixon, Bush, Bush, and now Trump. Going for three disasters out of four. I guess consistency is some sort of virtue.

    So you think you can predict the future.

    But he has a steep hill to climb with Republican voters. In a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll from March 11, 74 percent of Republicans said they viewed Trump in a negative way — more than any of the 14 other candidates discussed in the poll.

    I realize that he has consistently exceeded just about everyone’s expectations, but, it is one thing to run for the presidency and it is another to actually be president…look at all the little messes that have already occurred and he hasn’t even been inaugurated yet…people can stomach a lot of things, but eight years of this disaster? Oy…
