I realize I had a similiar topic to this (albeit more seriously) on the old SDMB. Funny thing is I don’t know even what happened to all our old threads. Can we still get to them? I honestly don’t know. Anyways, I’ve chosen to share this story with you all again. Please notice that I have made a few additions to the story too. Enjoy!
THE ADAMS/BUSH COINCIDENCES. These were the only presidents to
follow one another as father-and-son pres.'s. Both couples were
ted by a middle name ore initial. Both father-pres.‘s were VP’s of
charismatic conservatives that came before them, and were followed
by charismatic leaders of the opposing party(both w/a “Jefferson” in
their names)–ea. fath. serving just
one term. Both fath.‘s started into a new decade and had a son start
into a whole new century. Adams’ “A” is before Bush’ “B”. Both sons
had a VP whose last name began with a “C” and a wife whose
first…“L”. Fate must not like sons to follow their fathers as
pres., because neither son had a majority of the country’s
support–John Q. Adams was elected by our Congress!
MY PREDICTION: Both Adams only served one term. Both were then followed by a member of the opposing party too. John Q. Adams was followed by a Democrat from Tennesee whose first name began with an “A”–Andrew Jackson. Albert Gore is from Tennessee. Hey, stranger things have been known to happen.
BTW, I recently read on the internet that the so-called Tecumseh Curse is alive and well. That is when a president elected in a yr. ending in zero dies in office. If that is true, I wonder how that will fit in with the “curse” I have discovered. Oh, well. Wait and learn.
