    Are not those "qualities" signs of a "badass"?

    I doubt anyone was suggesting that the president in question had to be a good “badass”…if that’s not an contradiction in terms anyway…

    It can only be said this is bad question. It lacks criteria for judgment and really lacks choices who were no only as good but better.

    Starting with the man who set the standard for all presidents, George Washington.

    We have had plenty of brave and or brilliant men in the office, and most were not progressives.

    Many went to war and saw action that far exceeds TRs and were heroes as well, like JFK, everyone of them was a hero in my book.

    Ronald Reagan was hero who never went to war as a combatant but there was military involvements in Grenada, Central America, Lebanon, Libya
    Cold War subsides (Glasnost with U.S.S.R.) That took guts and brains.

    Hell Eisenhower, Dwight David "Ike" was a great President and a hell of a war hero for the whole free world.

    Many of these questions have such a narrow criteria they are push poll questions, and therefore the results are meaningless.

    Oh, no, I'm not disputing his "bad-ass"ness, or however you would style it. I was just amusing myself by knocking him off his pedestal. Whatever he was (a bad-arse), he certainly wasn't a good guy.

    U.S. Grant. Teddy not a close second. Ulysses could not only fight all the live-long-day, but he would have then drunk and smoked four eyes under the table.

    Andrew Jackson. Laughed at Congress when they censured him. Figuratively, told Chief Justice John Marshal to "**** off". When an assassin's gun jammed, instead of running for cover, he beat the assassin with his cane. Killed the Bank of the US. Single-handedly put a stop to the Civil War breaking out in 1832. Fought in 13 duels, and was shot so many times, he rattled like a bag of marbles when he walked. And... his final words upon leaving the Presidency were... "I only have two regrets... that I have not shot Henry Clay nor hanged John C. Calhoun."

    Now THAT was bad-ass.

    Totally agree, may not have liked all the mans policies but his balled clanked, when he walked.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    There is no value judgements in this assessment. By today's standards, AJ would have been racist, dictatorial, and probably imprisoned. But based on the OP, yes, ethnic cleansing would indeed be bad-ass.

    All qualities of many of the great European leaders of years past, too. Ironic, ain't it?

    Well, we all are in agreement that it is not Barack Obama, right ? So scratch that one off the list.
