Had we only elected McCain or Romney, things would be going swimmingly.

"The least transparent POTUS in history..." Acquaint yourself with the term 'recency bias'.

When you make comments like the one quoted above, does it hurt?

Chronological snobbery


............. a term coined by friends C. S. Lewis and Owen Barfield, is a logical argument (and usually when thus termed, considered an outright fallacy) describing the erroneous argument that the thinking, art, or science of an earlier time is inherently inferior when compared to that of the present. As Barfield explains it, it is the belief that "intellectually, humanity languished for countless generations in the most childish errors on all sorts of crucial subjects, until it was redeemed by some simple scientific dictum of the last century."
