    Your Favorite President?

    Just post the name of your favorite president and I'll post a poll later with the top ten most listed options.

    If you want to, go ahead and post why you think they kick ass; maybe this'll generate some interesting debate.

    Obama, cause he's not American
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Richard Nixon; because no President has done more for the environment than him.

    The Roosevelts. Most days it's Teddy for his singular vision of Americanism, but when I spend a lot of time thinking about the Depression or World War II, I think about FDR's forceful leadership.

    Dwight D. Eisenhower=His tough stance on illegal aliens and initiating the "inter-state highway system".

    Calvin Coolidge=Introducing programs to reduce size of government.

    The interstate highway system destroyed nearly all the public transportation systems in this nation; destroyed many inner-city neighborhoods; and created America's dependence on foreign oil.

    If it was left with just connecting cities as was its original mandate, it would have been great. Instead, it became a way to commute through cities and it cut through once thriving neighborhoods and destroyed them; allowed people to move further and further from work so they could whine about their commutes.

    My hometown of Indianapolis once had one of the best public transportation systems in the world. It now has one of the worst.

    Also keep in mind that Eisenhower's SecDef was the former chairman of GM; so it's a perfect example of Corporatism and industry control of government.
