The Democratic Party: The Party Of Presidential Firsts

People in general are enthralled by those who achieve a first. Robert Ripley earned his living reporting on such things ( Ripley’s Believe It or Not).

I don’t know if the Democratic Party is listed in Ripley’s’ book; but if it isn’t, it should be. The Democratic Party surely owes much of its success in American politics to its penchant for providing the voters with presidential “firsts”. Here are just some examples that come to mind:

  • Woodrow Wilson _ First in a long line of socialists presidents.
  • John F. Kennedy _ First Catholic president.
  • Jimmy Carter _ First peanut farmer president.
  • William Jefferson Clinton _ First black man but white-skinned president.
  • Barack H. Obama _ First white man but black-skinned president.

What other “firsts” might the Democratic Party offer up to the American voters? Here is what your humble observer of the asylum we all have to live thinks may be coming down the pike:

  • The first woman president
  • The first Hispanic president
  • The first Jewish president ( The current Mayor of Chicago?)
  • The first openly gay president
  • The first transgender president
  • The first Muslim president

And finally

  • The first last president

A friend of mine recently said that we do not always get the government we deserve. Most of the time, he said, we get a government worse than we deserve. He’s right!

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. Your friend is definitely right about that. Are people just enthralled with the idea of something different….just for the novelty of it? Crazy!

  2. With Bill Clinton we had the first white trash redneck womanizing jism spewing in the Oval Office cracker
    And we will soon have the first First Gentleman in the White House once Hillary and Bill slither back in. Truth is stranger than fiction.

  3. Anytime you get the chance, publicly bash liberals for their opposition to free speech. I love to do it on Facebook. It’s absolutely full of liberals who love to tell the rest of us what we can say and what we can’t. So anytime they are pissing and moaning (today they are whining bcuz W.Va. passed some law limiting free speech with regard to fracking materials) just tell them…oh yeah…I forgot. The liberals are in charge of telling us what speech we can use and what we can’t.

    They still whine about Bush. That’s ok. But we can’t have one conversation regarding the greatest liar ever to inhabit the WH. Anytime any of Obama’s lies and scandals even gets mentioned- here comes the liberal lynch mob.

    Never back down to these fascist pricks. Call them out on their shit. Have a great weekend.

  4. Wow! What a subject. Allow me to contribute a couple of Democrat Party firsts.

    First political party to elect a complete idiot as President. (Carter)
    First political party to elect a second complete idiot as President (Obama)
    First political party that cannot read a thermometer (global warming)

    I am sure that there are more firsts out there for the Dems, like lowest average IQ among all voters, but I just don’t have the data.
