Union workers, welfare queens and illegal aliens thrive under Democratic administrations, but not as much as the New York Yankees.
In this, the first year of the Obama Administration, the Yankees won their first World Series since … the last year of the Clinton Administration. You can blame George W. Bush for a lot, but you can’t blame him for a Yankee World Championship. While Clinton was having relations with Monica Lewinski, Derek Jeter was adding four rings and an untold number of venereal diseases.
Under GHW Bush and Reagan, the Yankees won no world titles and only one American League Pennant, in 1981 as America was still suffering from Jimmy Carter malaise. In Carter’s four years, inflation, unemployment, and Reggie Jackson’s # of rings rose exponentially (2 titles in four years).
In fact, the Bronx Bombers haven’t won a Series with a Republican in the White House for half a century:
You have to go back to Ike in 1958 to find the last Republican President to see a Yankee world title. Ike saw six pennants and three world titles. Then he waxed on about the military/industrial complex and gave birth to the modern left.
The GOP, if it is wise, will make an issue of this in 2012. Then again, what are the chances of the GOP being wise?
