What did we Learn in School?

It never ceases to amaze me that young voters think this is the worst race for the President.  Over the years there are elections that said horrible things.  "Ma, Ma, Where's my Paw?  Gone to the White House, Ha, Ha, Ha." This  was an attempt to pin paternity on Grover Cleveland. ( I have no idea if there is any truth in it)  Goldwater was going to blow us all up!  The press printed the results that Truman lost when he really won. 

I am sure that back to the beginning there have been campaigns that said and did things that were bad and in a lot of cases wrong.  The report was that Lincoln would lead us into a Civil War when it was the inevitable thing for a house so divided. 

The real sad thing today is that the press lacks credibility in reporting so bad that no one really knows fact from fiction.  Today a Gary Heart's picture on the poop deck of  Monkey Business would not be believed.   How did our past Presidents get such a free pass and candidates today are excoriated at the first drop of any hat.  

If you can make sense of any of this, you are a better man than I, Charlie Brown. 

The United States presidential election of 2016, scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will be the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. Voters will select presidential electors, who in turn will vote for a new president and vice president.
