    Lincoln breached the constitution and should be removed

    The same for Teddy. None of the people in the poll deserve to be replacements.

    Teddy certain seemed to care more about his image as a tough guy, than actually managing the government, as it was intended.
    The public eats that crap up and that's why he's remembered so fondly.
    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.

    I think if everyone shelved their political bent...we could see that the presidents may have been more or less effective or more in line with a certain ideology, but were all good men in their own ways. In reverse order, I believe Bush was as honorable and sincere a president as they come. Agree or disagree with the wars, he advanced the war on AIDS in Africa providing more support for that country than all others combined, he presided over the rebuilding following two horrible tragedies, and enacted prescription pill programs that he believed was the right thing to do. Clinton was an effective leader and worked well with a republican led congress to do good things for the country. He took a principled stand in Bosnia. Bush Sr did an effective job of rallying the world against Saddam in the first GW. Reagans mere presence and personality helped the US recover from a dismal 20 year span of war and economic misery. Carter in his heart (feelings towards jews aside) was a good man. Ford was the perfect fall guy...his following Nixon guaranteed there was no way he would ever be elected president, but he managed to transition the country from VietNam, Nixon, and Watergate. Nixon ended VietNam and attempted to open effective relationships with China. He has been described as a total prick in person but a good foreign policy president. Johnson...that poor bastard...what are you supposed to do when you get served up VietNam on a platter?

    Point being...every president had their strengths and weaknesses. For every anonymous internet blogger that attacks a presidents inteligence or presidency...well...just remember you are doing it from the safety of moms basement. We'll see what you actually manage to accomplish in your own life.

    We have no saints. I can see no reason to change Rushmore. And if we did, they should stand alone somewhere.

    Pretty well rounded.

    Mount Rushmore has nothing to do with glorifying great presidents. It has to do with glorifying expansionism, imperialism and the subjugation of peoples. If I was a President, I'd be insulted to have my face up there. It's a monument to ethnocentrism.

    None. In fact, some of the very known faces depicted there should be erased.

    I think it should stay the way it currently is.
