    Forgive me, I assumed most people were familiar with his middle name.

    Yes they are one and the same.

    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.

    Nope. Still not as badass as Roosevelt. I will concede that Norris is not simply pretending to be a badass as soon as a beloved children's toy is invented to comemorate him showing an act of mercy, and he makes a 90-minute speech right after being shot in the chest.

    I think perspective of the individual really has to come into play on this one. But putting aside all social, financial, and domestic issues, I would say Harry S. Truman for the sole reason the he is the only president who has had to make the decision to use nuclear weapons. I cannot even begin to imagine how a decision like that would weigh upon you. Even a president who makes the decision to go to war is sending soldiers to fight other soldiers who have been trained to have a fighting chance. Dropping a nuclear bomb on a city causes the ultimate collateral damage - 100% collateral damage. Making the decision and living with it afterward has to be the heaviest burden any human being ever has to bear.

    He had a lot stacked against him. He had bad asthma as a child, his first wife and mother died on the same day, his son Quinton was shot down and killed in WWI, he fought on the front lines of the Spanish-American war, he lived life as a cowboy for a while.

    I agree he was a great president. Fierce independence alienated him from his own party, causing him to lose his attempt to become the Republican nomination for the presidency in 1912.

    The original "progressive party." And BTW, TR is my favorite president.

    I voted GW because if not for him the US could have possibly slipped into another oligarchy.

    Not only that, but it's a two-family oligarchy! Why on Earth can't we have a third last name to randomly select our dictator from? Picking between Bush and Clinton just get a little old after a while, you know?
