For Presidents Day

Artist Andy Thomas created pictures of historical Republican presidents …

… one just hanging around …

… one playing poker …

… and one playing pool.

A Facebook Friend posted the poker photo a decade ago, and that prompted me to write dialogue:

REAGAN: “You’re not bluffing about a tax increase, George? There you go again …”

TR: “Make up your mind, Abe. It’s four score and seven years later …”

GEORGE BUSH: “Not going to raise. Wouldn’t be prudent. Not at this juncture.”

FORD: “That’s all I’m going to raise. I’m a Ford, not a Lincoln.”

LINCOLN: “Yes, I know.”

EISENHOWER: “Are you cheating, Dick?”

NIXON: “If the president does it, it’s not illegal.”

EISENHOWER: “That’s the funniest thing I’ve ever heard you say, Dick.”

TR: (falls off chair)

NIXON: “So, Ron, how did you get elected governor of California when I couldn’t?”

REAGAN: “Well …”

EISENHOWER: “Dammit! I forgot to invite Churchill! Winnie would have loved this!”

DUBYA: “So what’s your strategery, Mr. President?”

REAGAN: “Simple. We win, they lose.”
