Probably the coincidence of the President sharing my birthday just 19 years younger than me.
The last three Presidents have been Baby Boomers. Go to wikipedia for discussion of that phenomenon!
William Jefferson Clinton–b. August 19, 1946; So 65 today!
George W. Bush–b. July 6, 1946;
Barack Hussein Obama–b. August 4, 1961;
The consensus on who is boomer seems to focus on January 1, 1946 to January 1, 1965!
The three Presidents before, REAGAN, G.H.W. BUSH, and CARTER!
What an alignment of “stars”! These six men ran the USA into the ground through their incompetence. No other word for it. Yes they all had some successes but I firmly believe historians may well weigh their misdeeds in the balance and find them wanting.
I am a firm believer in the theory that Washington is filled with “skaters” both elected and appointed and civil servant. So is corporate American life.
What is a “skater”? This is a person who skates ahead of the breaking ice and almost ensures those who follow him fall into the freezing cold water of reality. Whether the boomers of the group above fit this definition I think so but may take 20-30 years to verify.
As to the others their contributions good and bad are just now coming into focus!
