I don't know why I'm posting this, I guess I'm just curious. And maybe kinda bored. Smile

I'd say Washington, since he encountered the most instability and established precedents for President (like the word play?) that didn't even exist. Lincoln would be a close second.

George W. Bush: Great President or Greatest President?

I said Abe. Mostly based on him being in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

What?

I'd go with FDR. I'm a New Deal man.

FDR; socialist.
Jefferson was a good president, if only because he was so bad. Every horrible plan he made resulted in a real progression for the country (The Embargo Act industrializing the country, for example).

Who left off Teddy Roosevelt. Come on. He was the first president to ride in a car, plane, and submarine. He was shot in the chest during one of his speeches and he finished it before treatment (the bullet was never removed). He was the only president to get in a knife fight with a cougar. How can you beat that?

I'd have said FDR if it weren't for the secrecy (and that "executive privilege" thing).

JFK may have saved us from nuclear war, but it was a nuclear war that he was the cause of, so I'm not sure how many points he gets there. Also, three words: "Bay of Pigs". If he weren't assassinated, he probably would have been in the running for one of the worst presidents.

Washington certainly set up a precedent, but most of what he did (as an executive officer) was done to enforce what all of his peers decided upon. He was certainly wise, but he's no Abe Lincoln.

I ain't afraid of no rolly-coaster.

Oh so someone did actually listen to the songs on my post. What a waste of time and effort that was. I'm sorry.

Imagine how hard that would be to do even if you tried. Maybe with a Mercury Cougar?

Hmm? You lost me there. Did you take down that post with the stuff you put up? I had intended on listening to it once I got back on a fast internet connection.
