    Re: Your Favorite President?

    George Washington was the man who could have been king. Twice. The first time, he refused out right. The second time, he reluctantly accepted, though he went out of his way to instill a feeling that a president was merely a man, and not superior to the citizenry. Without Washington, I fully believe that this country would today be a monarchy. He set a standard of conduct that still hasn't fully eroded, after more than two centuries. He was simply the right man, at the right time.

    I'd give Grover Cleveland the second spot. He's the only president who, while in office, actually increased the rights and liberties of the people.

    Honorable mention goes to William Henry Harrison, who at least didn't take away any of our liberties.

    But yeah, I agree with you about Washington, which is why he made my list.

    Right on, phattonez. I think he was easily the most virtuous president ever and had the most respect for constitutional limitation of the federal gov't.

    No wonder he's on Ron Paul's office wall.

    Re: Your Favorite President?

    List of commonly voted favorite presidents:
    George Washington (just because he was the first)
    Abraham Lincoln
    Teddy Roosevelt
    Franklin Roosevelt
    John F. Kennedy (because he was young, good-looking, and assassinated)

    List of baby-eating, fascist presidents:
    Abraham Lincoln
    Teddy Roosevelt
    Franklin Roosevelt

    Teddy ROOSEVELT ate babies, too? I thought it was only the more recently deceased Teddy.

    LBJ-signed the Civil RIghts Act though most of his reign was a disaster
    Jerry Ford-handled a dark time in America with class and as one poster noted, sacrificed a full term for the good of the USA
    Bush II-appointed a man who might well go down in history as one of the top modern USSC CJs

    The president I have the least problems with is Eisenhower.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
