    Of all the Presidnts we've had in the past, who would you choose for 2008 ?

    I suppose this really needs a poll, but who WOULD
    you choose ? I really don't who I'd choose, but
    I would have to look hard at Harry S Truman.

    Be nice if the "buck" stopped somewhere...

    Theodore Roosevelt! "Speak softly and carry a Big Stick."

    Also once said, "Charge!"

    May I suggest Calvin Coolidge?

    George Washington.
    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    Did you hear why George Washington couldn't be elected today?

    He cut down a cherry tree. There goes the green/eco movement vote.

    He threw a dollar across the Potomac. There go the fiscal conservatives.

    He could not tell a lie. There goes any chance of nomination by either party.

    That's funny


    As another election draws near; the G.O.P. are yet again filled with a stupid confidence that the they will win the White House. What they don't realize about people like Trump, Carson, and Cruz is that their rhetoric only resonates within an echo chamber, but not the American people. They live in an illusion of falsehood and distorted truth and only seek information and opinions that confirm these beliefs and instantly reject anything that contradicts them because only their opinions matter. Their notion of freedom is freedom for themselves and those alike to them, but not the rest of the country which has changed.
    These are the reasons why the G.O.P is set to lose in 2016. And when that happens, rest assured that they will have myriad of conspiracy theories blaming everyone and everything from the liberal media, to Oprah, to welfare moms, and pretty much everyone but their own disgusting selves.

    See my sig, good leaders are a product of their times. Some great potential and character in the past, but all would fail miserably if thrown into current events.

    Ronald Reagan. He defeated one evil empire. Time to take care of a few more.

    Roosevelt or Jefferson, maybe both on the same ticket. Washington was a little too rigid for today IMO, military aristocrat type.

    Reagan.

    Most of the people suggested wouldn't have a clue about dealing with modern society, transportation, technology, infa-structure, weaponry, food, laws and certainly wouldn't know how to handle the Clintons.

    Let's face it, life was more difficult back in those days, but also much simpler.
