  1. He said you LIE, not you liar! Furthermore, he was LYING which was proven just recently.  And, he is a liar, a big one.  And, why not cover all the scandals behind Clinton's rapes of several women. that was a huge scandal, to which he was found guilty of and charged with a lesser charge.  Ironic of the water gate since Obama's admin does ten times worse than that, and yet, he gets away with it.

  2. The title should say "american history" there are other countries on earth. This is why you look so bad to other countries. Think a little further outside the inner sphere.

  3. All American except a few token mentions…why am I not surprised?

    What about the 1975 Constitutional Crisis in Australia? To this day it's considered one of the darkest days of Australian politics and led to massive distrust in the British Monarchy's involvement in the Australian political system.

  4. Woa hoss I'm not a Bush fan but your record of what happened in Florida is patently wrong. Both the original count and subsequent recounts were in Bush's favor. The recount wasn't even legal procedurally. Gore lost even after they enacted special rules to give him a chance.

  5. I know this list was made three years ago;first time i'm seeing it.
    i don't appreciate the sexy silhouettes chosen to represent the females sexually abused/assaulted by robert packwood, allegedly. ~not scott

  6. Holy crap this is old, but it's new because I just found it… Just another reason that taking something away because it lost it's relevance from one group is a mistake. ( Teen Titans and other entertainment from that era)
