So I said to him, "Barak, I know Abe Lincoln, and you ain't him."

Caption the past Republican presidents having a laugh in honor of the messiah's speech this evening. The original artwork is copyright by Andy Thomas, who has paintings of all political persuasions, including the messiah.

I have seen that. It’s good, though McKinley and Coolidge should definitley be in there, too.

They were both good. Teddy...eh.

Wonderful!

A great contrast to the faces of nasty, miserable, vindictive, hateful Dems, who don’t know how to enjoy life.

“Yeah, you were right, Abe, you can only fool some of the people all the time and all of the people some of the time, but holy $&#@! were they fooled last year!”

Caption #4
Bush Senior: “Me and my son are going to be revered in history by the media.”

Regan and Ford: “You did realize that we all died before the American media revered us, right?”

I would love to have a copy of that picture. I saw that picture on a recent trip to New Orleans, but the store was closed.

I love that picture of Reagan. I miss him so much.

The artist really captured Reagan nicely. When you look at the picture, it’s Reagan that the eye goes to.

This is a fine work of art, but it would take another table to seat all the GOP presidents you missed. Come to think of it, be sure to get an extra large chair for President (and Chief Justice) Taft.

Hey, I didn’t paint it. ;’)

They missed Andrew Johnson, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Benjamin Harrison, McKinley, Taft, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover! Basically, of the 19th c Pubbie presidents, only Lincoln is shown.

Andrew Johnson was not a Republican!

He ran with Lincoln on the Union Party ticket, being chosen for his appeal in the border states. Nor did he have any synergy at all with the Republicans who controlled Congress during his presidency and who came within one vote of removing him from office via impeachment.

Johnson was the only US senator from any confederate state who remained in Washington when his state (Tennessee) seceded.

:’) Johnson was a Democrat, who switched parties and was a Republican president. There was no Union Party as far as I know, until (it sez here) the 1930s. The Republican party was also *called* the National Union Party.

Sorry, it was the “National Union Party,” the Republicans merging with some pro-Union Democrats and others for the special circumstances of the Civil War. Johnson was won of those pro-Union Democrats, even though, once the Civil War was over, he cast his lot with the former slaveholders of the white South. No, he was never a Republican - and as I said, fought tooth and nail with the Republican Congress, possibly the greatest level of friction between the executive and legislative branches in American history.
