Who is the most divisive American president in postmodern history and what is the basis of your
Well what do you consider post modern - some say after the 1930's, others later like the 1970s. If the latter there is no question the award for divisiveness goes to the Messiah, Barrack (who's sane?) Obama. After all if he won the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing he should be awarded the Hub Page Divisive award for being the standard bearer of division, class warfare, demagoguery, race baiting and "phoney" scandals. However if there was a Nobel Divisive award Obama should get it for doing nothing to unite the country since it appears, once Obama came on the scene, to get a Nobel Prize it must be awarded for doing nothing.
I would say George Bush, the son. I say that because I think Americans wanted change. Americans were tired of war. They wanted job growth. They wanted to decrease the country's debt. I think voters thought Obama would bring a fresh beginning to the country. While opponents of Obama were set against it from the beginning. It seems to me that Americans used to be very supportive of political candidates, and after the Bush era, it seems that the country has done a back slide of events. (And I'm not one to usually post about politics, because I actually know very little.)
So your basis that Bush was divisive is "Americans were tired of war. They wanted job growth. They wanted to decrease the country's debt." Obama has a worse record on all those categories. You said it - "after the Bush era" That's during Obama's term
I think it was after the Bush era. Yes. I think people were disgruntled. I'm stating this as neutral as possible without trying to create division among either party. LOL. Just my observations.
My point is the reasons you give for Bush being divisive are many times worse under the Obama administration so wouldn't you say Obama was even more devisive? War hasn't stopped, real unemployment 2-3 times worse than Bush, Debt is thru the roof!
The point in time where American became divided was after Bush. Why do I say that? Because they didn't re-elect a Republican. Bear in mind though, I'm not against Bush. I was just making observation.
Barack Hussein Obama. Why? Just watch the news.
And coming in 2nd: Lyndon B. Johnson. Reason: Vietnam & "The Great Society/War on Poverty." Either you supported wholeheartedly, or you despised him for those two reasons. Plus, his personality and how he presented himself, like Obama, either drew you to him or absolutely repulsed you.
Third place goes to Dubya (and I was and am a Bush supporter) Reason: Wars, two of 'em. He infuriated the left in a way Reagan never could.
The left attacked Ron just as much but the left didn't control the Democrap Party like now, ...Ronny Reagan was a friend of mine. Governor Bush, you're no Ronny Reagan:-) but. Bush vrs Obama - Obama tries to divide, Bush tried to unite.
I don't disagree with you, and maybe I'm senile, but I don't recall anybody issuing daily calls for Reagan's execution/assassination, do you?
The left went after Reagan for sure, but not like they did Bush.
