Our worst prez, Carter, is/was a Dem! Coincidence?

BTW, I think I am going to have Noble Wray ask you for a statement of clarification as to why you need to use such an agressive moniker "fisticuffs" here on the otherwise peaceful forum

Jason, Fattest, dumbest, poorest and most conservative state are measurable. Worst President is not. It's subjective. I'd argue our worst was GWB, Ronald Reagan, or Warren G. Harding. You'd argue Carter. Neither of us would be factually correct.

I didn't think anyone would ever be able to beat Reagan as Worst President Ever. But I was wrong with a capital W. :lol:

Correlation does not equal causation Fisti. Let's get back to reality.

That's a keeper. I think we should ALL keep that in mind in the future.

It's not the thoughts that are the causation it's the policies those thoughts have led to that make the Red states mostly dumber, poorer, and less healthy.

Cutting teacher pay in WI will mean we attract fewer good teachers. Your free market taught me that. Fewer good teachers will lead to poorer students. It's a race to the bottom you seem to be in a hurry to win.

That was my point!
Polls are subjective as well.
