TR. Progressive, no BS, get it done kind of guy. There's a lot I don't like about him, but for his work on behalf of national parks and forests, breaking up trusts, and keeping Europe out of the Americas, he earned his spot on Rushmore.

Reagan. He's the reason I'm a republican. He believed in low taxes, limited government, personal responsibility.

Bill Clinton, because despite his moral character flaws he was a good leader and the country was in a good path

Lincoln. Made the gutsiest move ever with the Emancipation Proclamation. Succeeded the worst president ever (Buchanan), and held the union together. Emancipated a whole race. Read his second inaugural address. Greatest speech in American history.

I like Ike. He authorized the construction of the interstate system. One out of every 5 miles is a strait-away to land aircraft. That's how we get fresh produce in the east from the west.

While I realize the hypocrisy there, as you said Clinton's one view changed in a ten year span where as Romney changed his views on multiple things almost every other time he was spoken too.

JFK didn't do much he just gets credit for his age, accent, time he lived in, and assassination.

JFK was great because he wasn't going to play ball with all of the corrupt BS, thats why they had him killed. He could have been the greatest president since Lincoln if it wasnt cut short.

Skinner do you ever change your mind? I'm going to assume your answer is yes and alert you that presidents can as well.
And all of them have so your getting on Clinton's case about this because? Gay marriage is a popular issue right now.

Too racist. A brilliant mind who believed that slavery was wrong but still owned them and refused to deal with it on a national level. The founding fathers inaction led to the Civil War.

I agree with skinner. FDR did not lift the immigration quotas, which would have let more Jews escape the Nazis. He left them

FDR also did not aggressively bomb railroad tracks to the concentration camps or do anything else to stop the genocide.

Jefferson was also told by his best friend John Adams to free his slaves. Benjamin Franklin also told him he'd look hypocritical if he didn't. There were anti slavery people & movements at the time he lived. But you can't read 16 hours a day

George Washington. He could have easily destroyed our new country before it even began. He was a great leader.

Matt, I see you and skinner "agreed to disagree," so I don't want to start something again. But, I just noticed this conversation and felt I should support skinner's argument.

Clinton's social views. Which one? The one where he wants to deny gay rights or the one where he has an magic change of heart and becomes in favor of gay marriage?
