And look at Andrew Jackson. That guy was absolutely brutal. He is probably one of the only Presidents who can be compared to Stalin or Hitler or some tyrant. But for the biggest badass I still choose Teddy Roosevelt.
    Goshin brought him up, so he's more likely to have an obsession than I do. I'm not saying obama is some manly badass. I'm just not saying that he's some girly wimp that would go down in a fight against a skinny old man like Goshin was suggesting.

    No secret that I dislike Obama and otherwise generally have a low opinion of him.

    Toughness, though, as in bad-ass-ed-ness, has little to do with being in fabulous shape. Being in good shape helps, but it isn't remotely the key to being badass.

    Bad-ass is chiefly a matter of will, heart, and the willingness to throw down.

    There's basically nothing you can point to about the Big O and say "that's badass" in the ass-kicking sense of the word. No military service, never been a cop, fireman, etc. No history of violence, peril or adventure.

    Contrariwise, his manner and apparent attitude exhibit no hint that he could actually throw down if, say, Joe Biden were to grab a feel on Michelle after too many cocktails at a state dinner.

    (Yes, yes, I know that's silly; he'd have the Secret Service guide Uncle Joe off somewhere private to sober up. But, that's kind of my point. Teddy or Old Hickory would've busted someone in the chops, at least.)

    Well yes, he's not a very aggressive person, but to say that he's the weakest, most loserest president either that would be beat by an old man just seems like a case of derangement syndrome

    BHO would win a presidential basketball championship. Nixon gets the bowling trophy. Not sure what GWB wins.. brush clearing perhaps?

    You're taking this thread way too seriously.

    I'm an Obama supporter and I agree with this.

    However, being a bad ass is not necessarily a good thing. Cheney was a bad ass, and he was terrible!

    GHWB was a badass. Carrier based pilots in the pacific had brass ones. Really dangerous duty. He earned a DFC. Now Ike was a tough guy but being the top dog wasn't as dangerous as being knee deep in Zeroes and triple A
