Johnson wages genocidal war on Vietnam, but the idea of Nixon winning seems impossible.
Nixon wins. Is worse than anyone imagined.
Carter promises a new era of honesty and all decent people rejoice when he wins.
He doesn’t do anything to undo damage of Nixon, but supports Shah of Iran and funds the birth of Islamic fundamentalists to bring down USSR but the thought of an idiotic right wing phony like Reagan winning seems impossible.
Reagan wins. Is much worse than anyone imagines is possible. Much worse than Nixon.
Clinton promises a new era of populism and all decent people rejoice when he wins.
Clinton doesn’t do anything to undo damage of Reagan, (except make economy profitable again for the 1%)but starves half million Iraqi children to death, repeals glass steagal, privatizes prison system and ends welfare, but the idea that such a big idiot and right wing nut as Bush could win seems impossible.
Bush wins. Is much more terrible than anyone imagined. Much worse than Reagan.
Obama promises new era of post racial hope and change and wins. The whole world rejoices.
Obama doesn’t undo any of the damage of Bush (except making the economy profitable for the 1% again) bombs 7 countries but the thought that an absolute lunatic like Trump could win seems ABSOLUTELY impossible….
