Well, Nixon screwed the pooch when he pulled the dollar from the gold standard and turned into a currency. You happy now?

Strange that wasn't mentioned in the video... although I only watched half of it because it quickly became apparent it wasn't the "Top 10 political promises gone wrong" it was "Top 10 mistakes by Democrats"

Watching Fox news anymore is like sitting through sunday church TV shows.

You should give Stossel more credit than that (he's not even a Republican). He was a Democrat his entire live and a consumer advocate, it was through this he found enlightenment. He still does the same job, but now it's finding the flaws in Gov't. Much Like Jude Napalatino, he spent his career as a Federal Judge, through this he was enlightened to at what extent the gov't tries to **** you over...suffice to say he's a libertarian that hates gov't now.

Just watch the video.

I watched the whole thing. When you get to the top couple he rode the R's as much as the D's.

Ehhh, not really.

Don't get me wrong I'm more republican than democrat, It's just obviously biased reporting that bugs me the most.

You are SERIOUSLY missing the point. It doesn't matter if they're dems or reps. It's not left v right anymore, it's PROGRESSIVES v CONSERVATIVES. Dems and Reps are both trying to reach the same goal, they're just going about it different ways. There is little gray area between them now. Bush was progressive, Obama is progressive, many of our previous administrations were progressive. What he was trying to display was progressive big government, not Democrats. The ethanol scam has been going on since before Big Barry O took office. It was not biased reporting.

Off topic a bit, or perhaps not, but I am tired of the argument "well Bush did this or that". So that makes any future administration's corruption or incompetence acceptable, because one person's soul identifies with one political party or another. Geezus.

You mean in 1796, when George Washington refused to serve a third term, leading to the first contested election in US History, where incumbent VP John Adams campaigned under the banner of the Federalist party against former Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson of the Republican party?
