The Platters Saw Obama -the Great Pretender- Coming Back in 1955 – Dave’s Diary

The year was 1955. Winston Churchill resigns, Argentina ousts Juan Peron and the US starts sending aid to Viet Nam. Our U.S. population was about half of what it is now and the federal debt nearing 17 trillion today was a mere 274 billion back then.
