Presidential Trivia 4 You 2 Chew On

Executive trivia ~~Here are some interesting presidential facts 4 you~~~ R• Vice presidents were the presidential candidates receiving the second-largest number of electoral votes until the Twelfth Amendment was passed in 1804, changing the system so the electoral college voted separately for president and vice president. Gradually the presidential candidate was allowed at least informally to choose his own running mate at the nominating convention. • For two years the nation was led by a president and vice president who were not elected by the people. When Vice President Spiro T. Agnew resigned in 1973, President Nixon appointed Gerald Ford as vice president. Nixon resigned the following year, which left Ford as president. Ford appointed Nelson Rockefeller as VP. • Nine presidents never attended college: Washington, Jackson, Van Buren, Taylor, Fillmore, Lincoln, A. Johnson, Cleveland and Truman. • Harvard boasts the most alumni as presidents (six, but with varying grade point averages): J. Adams, J.Q. Adams, T. Roosevelt, F. Roosevelt, Kennedy and G.W. Bush. Wilson was the only president with a Ph.D. • The ancestry of all presidents so far is limited to the following seven European heritages: Dutch, English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Swiss or German -- out of balance with a cross-section of the people they represent. • The height of presidents has ranged between 5'4" (Madison) and 6'4" (Lincoln) • Fourteen -- about a third -- served as vice presidents: J. Adams, Jefferson, Van Buren, Tyler, Fillmore, A. Johnson, Arthur, T. Roosevelt, Coolidge, Truman, Nixon, L. Johnson, Ford and George Bush. • Adams, Jefferson and Monroe all died on the Fourth of July; Coolidge was born on that day. Adams and Jefferson also died the same year: the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. • Harrison delivered the longest inaugural address at 1 hour, 45 minutes. He also had the shortest presidency: one month. • While in the primaries and caucuses much emphasis is placed on larger states such as California, Florida and New York, others can also be important. No Republican has ever won a presidential election without carrying Ohio. S PLEASE RESPECT,THANK,HONOR,SUPPORT & PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS,VETS,FIRST RESPONDERS and THEIR FAMILIES ;-)

Cool! Here I thought you were someone with just a moniker and I find out that you are more than just a "Karpet Kitten". I found your post very interesting. I can tell you are a smart gal by your pictures, you're not a blonde! I can prove it too, because my wife of 34 years married me, and some of the boys who were chasing her thought she was crazy for falling for me! Keep up the good work because I'm just a trucker who enjoys talk radio from 5:00AM til 10:00PM. Thunderchicken

Gosh, now I don't know if what I wrote was sent or not! So this two fingered typist will start over.
Cool! Here I only thought you were a gal who called Sean Hannity and he put the moniker of "Karpet Kitten" on you. I knew you were a real and a passionate conservative but had no idea that you had a blog.
I enjoyed your post and the historical trivia you presented. I also appreciate your support for our beloved men and women in our armed forces and our first responders. They do need our prayers and they do appreciate our thanks. As a trucker who drives around Wisconsin and central Minnesota, I've met several young men who were leaving for duty in Iraq. Each one of them deserve our upmost thanks and prayers. Truly this is the land of the free, because of the brave. May God bless you and guide your thoughts and words to protect us from the enemies who are within our borders. They are the ones who are mostly the ignorant and zombie like lemmings, who would vote our country over a cliff of doom. They are guided by the spirit of the Antichrist which has captured the souls of so many evil despots past, present, and are to come.
I'm glad you truly pursuit Life, Liberty and Happiness.
