    Best President Nickname?

    For those not educated well on history, it may be difficult to pick a president. But here are the top 9 imo. If you feel differently, please specify by commenting (other).

    "Old Hickory" - Andrew Jackson
    ~Given to him by his soldiers for being "as tough as an old hickory."

    "Honest Abe"- Abraham Lincoln
    ~For always being straightforward and honest.

    "Rutherfraud" - Rutherford B Hayes
    ~Due to the disputed results of the 1876 election, many Democrats considered him to illegitimately be president.

    "Silent Cal" -Calvin Coolidge
    ~Because he was a man of few words.

    "Ike"- Dwight D Eisenhower
    ~Campaign slogan. Nickname as child.

    "Tricky Dick"- Richard Nixon
    ~For the democratic party ad, criticizing his record by saying "Look at Tricky Dick Nixon's Republican record."

    "The Great Communicator"- Ronald Reagan
    ~For his exceptional ability to articulate.

    "Slick Willie"- Bill Clinton
    ~For his ability to talk his way out of a mess...perhaps for other reasons too lol

    "Dubya"- George W Bush
    ~Texas pronunciation of his name
    "Nobody spends somebody else's money as carefully as he spends his own. Nobody uses somebody else's resources as carefully as he uses his own. So if you want efficiency and effectiveness, if you want knowledge to be properly utilized, you have to do it through the means of private property."

    at a dinner party with president Coolidge, some society lady went up to the president and said she had bet someone she could get him to say at least three words.

    President Coolidge said YOU LOSE and turned and walked off
