When most of us think of Presidents of the United States, we think about the things they did, right or wrong. Rarely, do we think about their sex lives. The main reason for this is that prior to Gerald Ford, reporters didn’t reveal everything the President was doing. However, after their deaths, many of the skeletons came out of the closet. In some cases, this is almost literal! Here are five stories about the sex lives of US Presidents.
Even if you heard that the economy is in the toilet and that business is doing terrible, you'd be wrong. While we may still not have the money in the bank or jobs to go to, the S&P 500 index - also known as the Standard and Poor's 500 - is a stock market index based on the 500 largest companies in the United States and how well they are doing in the economy. In the 84-years that this index has been calculated, there have only been five presidential administrations that have seen this number double. In those 84 years, we have had fourteen presidents, so it isn't a usual expectation. Only about one in three administrations succeed in doubling this number. Here are the five that have.
President Obama has found himself caught up in yet another scandal this week with controversy over the IRS using their powers to attack the Tea Party. Whether you like the Tea Party or not, this behavior is not fair, nor should it be tolerated. However, this also isn't a new development. The IRS has been going against political adversaries for years and it is only coming to light because of our constant news coverage. Since the beginning of the IRS, several administrations have gone after their political rivals. While we do not condone this strategy, it must be known that the current leaders are not alone in this tactic. Is the IRS a political goon squad? It appears that they might have been used that way.
HUMOR ALERT: President Obama is giving the first State of the Union Address tonight for his second term in office. If you haven't heard, there's been a lot of tension in the United States over the past year. Tonight, there were some surprises originally planned, but the President decided to take them out of the speech. You might be shocked what parts the left-hugging media left on the cutting room floor!
Fox News is dying and has seen it's best days. It's now in its Swan Song. It's dying. They've outlived their welcome and are in decline. Why? Because America is sick and tired of them spewing hatred? Is it Obama? Have they just outgrown the American public? If you take a look at these five factors I've listed below, you can see why they will no longer be the top news channel and why there ratings are at an all-time low. Watch it while you can because unless they change their ways and start telling real news, their days are numbered.
There’s been a lot of hoopla the last few weeks over President Obama’s use of Executive Orders and their legality. I’ve heard terms like “unprecedented” and “unconstitutional” and “abuse of power” mentioned by members of our Congress and I find myself shaking my head. The fact is: It is legal for a president to issue an Executive Order. An Executive Order grants the President the right to make major decisions, and even laws, without the consent of Congress. Don’t like it? Blame the Founding Fathers. Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison all made Executive Orders. Not all of them were something you might agree with. Some of them were down and outright criminal, but they are legal, NOT impeachable, and are the law of the land. Here are some of the worst in history (and no, your gun laws aren’t in this list). As a side note, President Obama has not had the most Executive Orders ever issued. He’s not even close and, in fact, he’s made the LEAST Executive Orders of any President in the past 100 years. He certainly has not made the worst executive actions!
