Which Party to Blame for Droughts?

The hands in the photograph belong to President Barack Obama, who’s holding a few ears of corn during his tour of the McIntosh family farm in Missouri Valley, Iowa, which has been affected by the drought this season.

The drought in America is causing a rise in the cost of food products everywhere, including Israel, where the price of bread has just gone up by 6 percent.

Now, let’s look, at the correlation between U.S. presidents and years of peak drought, to find out whether the drought means God hates Democrats

May, 1925 – Coolidge, R

Sep. 1931 – Hoover, R

Jul. 1934 – Roosevelt, D

Aug. 1936 – Roosevelt, D

Dec. 1939 – Roosevelt, D

Jul. 1954 – Eisenhower, R

Dec. 1956 – Eisenhower, R

Jun. 1977 – Carter, D

Jun. 1988 – Reagan, R

Aug. 2012 – Obama, D

That’s 5 Rs and 5 Ds.

It appears droughts are evenly distributed between Republican and Democratic administrations. God loves—or punishes—both parties equally.
