Original message My 12-year-old daughter summed it up nicely.


We were talking about different presidents, in particular those who have been accused of wrong-doing. I brought up John Adams, Andrew Johnson and a few others. She has, of course, lived her whole sentient life under W and then Obama, so those are her only real points of reference.

She said, "So those guys did stuff that was found unconstitutional years later, while W did stuff that was found unconstitutional years BEFORE."

Pretty bright, my girl.


Newbie needs some cred points so what better way to do it than with a story about his widdle girl and the ebil W!!!! :eek: :rolleyes:

What "stuff" did the founders do that was unconstitutional?

Alien and Sedition Acts are the first thing to mind for Adams. Not quite sure what Jackson did though. *shrugs*

Edit: Maybe it was his attempts to kill the Electoral College? Not sure why DUmmies would be upset about that though.

Jackson spit tobacco juice on the carpet and is thus should have been executed, impreached and barred form presenting cases before the Supreme Court for 10 years... in that order.

Probably didn't kick back in the Oval Office and throw his feet up on the desk while the country went to hell.

Did they have golf back then?

I guess they set up case law and stare decisis (judicial precedent), and I don't think the constitution has anything about that.
