If we combined all the corruption in Govt from G.Washington to Bush was it as much as NOW?

Is what we got now in govt more corruption than all those govt administrations combined? I think it is!

Update:

Someone is telling me to read US History- HAH HAH! Liberals changed it! Maybe you should read the real history books!

Michelle even said they would "CHANGE HISTORY"- They are! I have THREE KIDS and read their homework- It sucks that I have to CORRECT it and tell them whats fact and not fact- the books are such lies now!

    You need to ask a similar question about the Supreme Court, in light of its 2010 landmark decision to give corporations the right to spend as much as they want to influence elections.

    By the way, where do you think the corporations came up with the money that they will spend influencing elections?

    You're absolutely right!

    Obama's Trinity of Bribery

    1)

    The Cornhusker Kickback for Nebraskan Senator Bob Nelson's vote

    Nelson won a provision exempting his state from paying the usual share of costs for new Medicaid patients. The deal critics have dubbed the Cornhusker Kickback is expected to cost the federal government $100 million over 10 years.

    2)

    The 2nd Louisiana Purchase for Lousiana Mary Landrieu's vote

    a government payoff to Democrat Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu to secure her vote so that Harry Reid could get 60 votes and begin the debate on Obamacare in the Senate. $300 million payoff for her vote! Hell, the original Louisiana Purchase only cost $15 million. Can you say quit pro quo, payoff!

    The same day, March 3, 2010,… the president appointed Rep. Jim Matheson’s (D-UT) brother, Scott Matheson, to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    This is the single most corrupt administration in U.S. history, but not if you combine all the corruption. You've got Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Roosevelt, Carter and Nixon all thrown in there...man. I'll agree with you though we do have the worst administration of all time.

    Seems like it, maybe its just because there are alot more people in govt plus the 24 hour media cycles exposes it more.

    Maybe you should read some U.S. history. You will find that you're mistaken.

    You forgot to put an American flag in your avatar, by the way.

    So... The government is currently wiretapping opponents in Watergate AND selling weapons to Iran in order to give the profits to death squads in Latin America?
