    Politics Aside, who is the more likable of our last 3 Presidents. C

    Politics aside. Don't think about the economy, foreign policy, etc. Think about character stuff. You know, like cheating on your wife, being a drunk, or snorting coke. Which POTUS is the most likable guy of the last three? Clinton, W Bush, or Obama.

    I find both Bush and Obama to be likable... but Clinton was a piece of **** as a person, imo.

    I most likely wouldn't get along with any of them.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I voted Bush. Good back story on the guy that made me like him.
    I had a buddy who was the lead crew chief on Marine 1 when he was POTUS. The first time President Bush went to his ranch in Texas, he sat and talked to my buddy for about an hour while they were in the air about regular stuff. Did he have a girlfriend, had he ever ridden a horse, where was he from, etc. At the time, my buddy was engaged. So President Bush offered a guest house to he and his fiance to stay in while at his ranch. My friend declined, of course. Well, the next day, his fiance shows up. President Bush had found out her name, had one of his aides call her, and arranged for his private jet to go get her and bring her to Texas. When I heard that story, I knew he was a good guy. In addition, President Bush's practice of waiting until his staff, Secret Service detail, and Marines/Airmen on his aircraft enjoyed their Christmas with their families before going home is awesome.
    I think President Obama is probably a good guy too. He is extremely funny in his interviews, comes across as a genuinly good husband and father, and can laugh at himself. I just have a more personal story with President Bush so that's what leans me his way.
    I think President Clinton is a dirt bag, so I don't even consider him.

    I have a buddy who was working Camp David in his second administration. Those kinds of stories are pretty common - Bush is a genuinely good person. Makes me sad for the way he was treated.

    I think the most likable was Clinton. The one I have the most respect for is Bush.

    Dude is in ridiculous shape too. The same guy from the story has a picture of Bush, the Marine 1 crew, and the Secret Service agents on a run. Bush is in front with the Marines and the Secret Service dudes are falling out sucking wind lol. Hilarious. The guy said Bush ran a 19 to 19:30 3 miles. Most young Marines can't do that and this old man is out there smoking dudes at 60+.

    Clinton?! No way. Dude didn't own up to his weed (I loved the way Obama did that btw), banged chicks in the White House while he was married, and just seems like a genuine douche. You think he's hot, that's all that is lol.

    Nope- not at all. When he was president, I couldn't hardly stand to listen to or watch the man speak. I didn't like him personally, which is different from a person being likable. He's like a charming snake. Bush is the man who has the character, and the things that I find attractive in a man (hint: it's not a personality thing), but I'm not typical in my tastes.

    Trying to separate the politics is difficult when that's all we know of them. Their actions while in office can reflect on what kind of person they are, like starting 2 wars and transparent bigotry, that's not the kind of person I'd have a beer with. Obama and Clinton both come across as brilliant, and Clinton does a huge amount of philanthropy, but I'm always hesitant to say that I'd like someone on a personal, when I don't know them personally. They're politicians in the end. Who knows what they're really like.
