    If we had to add someone, FDR should be on it. He brought us back from the Great Depression, and lead us through WW2.

    Stay the same works, unless it's going to be modified by private donation, in which case the donors would get to choose the head, pending Congressional approval.


    Reagan clearly is the only candidate suitable on the list.

    FDR, among other things, imposed the world's biggest Ponzi Scheme on the American people and totally shredded the Constitution. He made the Depression worse, and gave birth to the Nanny State.

    JFK abandoned troops he sent to Cuba, for political expediency. Not to mention he almost started a nuclear war.

    Eisenhower built some road/airstrips all over the place. Should his role in WWII count? No.

    Reagan restored America, and forced the Soviet Union to die without risking a nuclear war. As the third greatest president ever, clearly Reagan would be The One if Keanu Reeves didn't already have the title.

    Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Kennedy, Reagan are other typical favorites.

    But I'd be afraid to embrace one, for fear of promoting "imperialism and subjugation of other peoples"

    Oh. You mean like James Buchanan.

    Pretty good idea if we're going to change it, but I think it should stay the same.

    If I seem to recall, many of the acts that "shredded the Constitution" were either upheld, or repealed by the SC. So, the Constitution is still intact.

    Yeah, because we all know he was raring for a fight with the Commies over Cuba right?

    Why not? Eisenhower did great things for the country, in a very moderate way.

    And set up many of the deregulatory practices that recently nearly destroyed America. He didn't force them to die, they were doing it on their own just fine. He did make them die earlier than they might have otherwise.

    I wouldn't mind it being completed according to the original design...with private funding of course, if we ever get enough to do it.

    The Mayor sees no reason to change it.

    Ah. Another person who believes certain judges speak with Papal infallibity and integrity.

    Yeah, because we all know he was raring for a fight with the Commies over Cuba right?
    Your comment does not in any way alter the fact that JFK sent men into battle, men were promised air cover by him, and that he then withheld the needed air support and thousands of men died for his broken promise. What's the mantra the Left loves so much? Oh, yeah. He lied, people died.

    Funny how you people never apply it where it really means something.

    Why not? Eisenhower did great things for the country, in a very moderate way.
    He simply does no stand out as anything special. Neither really good nor really bad, he presided over a nation who's economy couldn't help but grow...the US was the only supplier with intact factories...and yet, his foolishness of sending military "advisors" to Viet Nam set the stage for a terrible war that no one has ever managed to fully justify.

    And set up many of the deregulatory practices that recently nearly destroyed America. He didn't force them to die, they were doing it on their own just fine. He did make them die earlier than they might have otherwise.
    Yes, the treatment for cancer is often painful, always unpleasant, and never certain. Because subsequent presidents refused to continue the treatment, the cancer returned and a major metastasization occured in 2008, precisely because the nation returned to the failed policies of the socialist past.

    Okay, that's interesting. The Mayor has to go now, but he would appreciate a link to the orignal proposals...

    It really does the Presidents justice, I think.

    I've never seen actual plans for making this happen, but I've always thought it'd be nice to see the model completed.
