Best President Ever?
    #1903070 - 09/10/03 11:15 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Recently we had a thread asking who we thought the worst president ever was(the majority said Bush). I thought I might add some positivity to this forum by asking who everyone considers to be the best president ever.

My vote goes to Teddy Roosevelt. Although I don't like his foreign policy, his domestic policy made up for it. He created the National Park System, broke up several monopolies, did more for the environment than probably any other president, and in his one great act in foreign relations, negotiated a peace treaty between Russia and Japan(for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize). But one of his greatest attributes was the way in which he stood up adamantly for what he believed in. There was no bullshit with him. He was honest, straight-forward, and determined.

Anyway, what's your pick? Who do you think is the greatest president we've ever had, and why?

Thomas Jefferson-

started public education, tripled the landmass of the US by peaceful means, and adamantly fought for individual rights, and restrictions on federal power.

the runner up would be William J Clinton, IMO, but only because the republican legislature and being embroiled in his own scandals all the time kept him from having the opportunity to do anything really stupid. I enjoyed living under clinton, though. The day he left office, things started getting really bad for people like me.

iran contras, no shit canoodian.

It was wrong and we all know it. with that exception out of those that i lived through Reagan is by far the best. There isn't a president that was perfect. Same goes for the seal clubin' land to our north.

I don't know about who was the best, maybe Thomas Jefferson. But the smartest by far was James Buchanan.
