    Oscar - you totally are misrepresenting the Federalist Society/Wall Street Journal study. The panel was hand picked to intentionally give a tilt to conservatives as opposed to liberal Democrats like FDR who the libertarian crowd feels is the Son of Satan. But when these hand picked experts picked the best Presidents, surprise surprise, there was FDT listed as a GREAT PRESIDENT.

    You are aware of the Federalist Society are you not?

    probably because it wasn't funny. I love a good Bush joke just as much as the next guy....unfortunately yours wasn't one.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    It is pretty funny you say that because two of my professors this semester are pretty conservative.

    For those who may not know - this is from their home page of the Federalist Society..

    The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. The Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.
    emphasis added

    Their hand picked panel of experts also rated FDR as GREAT.

    Why the hell do you care what the Federalist Society thinks?

    You have a very odd obsession.

    Gerald Ford played center on an undefeated national championship team. I'm pretty sure he was the toughest president.

    this was post #11 in this thread. Perhaps you missed it. My post was to present factual information to correct the false impression given my Turtle Dude.

    Now who the hell has an odd obsession? And yours seems to be with me. But I get it. I really do. The greatest crime in the eyes of a True Believer is for a non-believer to speak the truth. Continue please.

    what the hell are you even talking about???? I am not misrepresenting anything. I have not even mentioned your precious little study. I simply made the observation that republican-leaning scholars were a rarity. anyone who has ever attended a university or college anywhere in the US can tell you that. I would wager that democrat/liberal-leaning scholars outnumber republican/conservative-leaning scholars 7-8 to 1 easily (the ratio is even higher if you restrict it to the non-technical fields of study)
