    They WILLINGLY collect the money in the end. Sorry, but wanting the system abolished and then collecting money on it IS hypocritical. My blinders are not on, you're excusing hypocrisy.

    William Henry Harrison

    IMO, all POTUS's just make things worse...so they all probably sucked.

    And since Harrison was only in office for 31 days, he did the least amount of damage...so he sucked the least.

    It's really not that hard to understand.

    What's funny is you attacking him for it when he is the only president, in my recollection, that ever had the balls to admit it. And please, let's not pretend any president has served without a lie; that's too naive.
    Too funny....I don't know any reality where someone who says their "heart wants to believe they didn't lie"....is admitting it. Now, if he came out and said, yes I lied but I felt like I was doing the right thing....that would be a different story, but your spin just doesn't cut it. Sorry Charlie.

    Re: Who has been our greatest President?

    I'd have to say the best ever was Calvin Coolidge. He was one of the very few presidents who wasn't an egotistical, narcissistic, power hungry megalomaniac. He also did far more than any other president in history to limit the power of the federal government and prevent it from intruding in the lives of the citizens.

    It's nice to see that Woodrow Wilson got no votes for best ever. Either he or our current president will most likely go down as the worst ever. Not only was Wilson a fascist racist who hated the constitution and criticism of the government but he also gave us the Federal Reserve and the Sedition Act of 1918. He was also a pedophile. Historians have done a good job at covering up this fact but the truth can be found with a little initiative in digging into his history from truthful sources. If there's a hell hopefully Wilson is there buring for eternity.

    a former girl friend and i came from families in the same town, but very different sides of the track
    my elders praised FDR, had photos of him in the living room and sadly recalled his funeral train stopping in town and the huge numbers who paid their respects. these were people whose bleak notso great depression existence would have been even more dire but for the make work programs FDR constituted to give them the means to feed, clothe, and shelter their families
    my girl friend's recollection was that times were so hard that her grandparents had to give up the lawn boy
    like turtledude, i suspect they did not have a portrait of FDR in their living room either

    What those folks do not realize is if not for FDR saving capitalism and our form of government - they would be living in a far more unacceptable environment today.

    Why is it that every dip**** liberal and his mother thinks that every dime collected from every citizen actually gets put to good use? You'd have to be a world class ignoramus (which coincidentally most modern liberals are) to believe that even half the tax revenue in this nation actually helps the general public in some way. Don't give me that horsecrap about roads and bridges and police. The majority of taxes goes to repay political favors, to special interest groups and on numerous other worthless causes.

    FDR was the beginning of the end in this nation. We went from self sufficiency to dependency on the federal government and liberals celebrate this. Simply disgusting!
