    I change my vote to Gumby. He was pro-choice right?

And Obama on future foreclosure notices, unemployment checks, and denial of medical service claims.

    Okay, that's spooky....

    Why do we need to change the bill at all? Grant is a genuine American hero, though he shouldn't have entered politics, and was beaten down by the crappy politicians of his time.

    Even Ronald Reagan himself would have said that FDR was the best 20th century president.

    At any rate, why change it, who carries cash anymore anyway?

    I don't know man, Reagan and FDR were political polar opposites, you'll have to explain that one further.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It seems to me that you can not like the policies of the president, but think he was an effective president. FDR did guide us out of the depression and though WWII. Its hard to argue that he wasn't an effective leader. You might not like his politics, but he provided the leadership when it was required.

    Though I personally did not like Reagan's politics, I do believe he was an effective leader, and thus a decent president.

    On the other, we have had president's that we may have agreed with on policy but were very ineffective presidents. I can see many that might like the general policies of the last guy, but not considered him to be a particularly good president.
