    Actually, I've always said that William Henry Harrison was by far the best president. His administration was totally scandal free, his foreign policy could not be criticized and his budget was above reproach. He was also the end of an era being the last President born as a British Subject.

    When the game is shutting down any meaningful dialogue you play the race card as soon as possible.

    I would say FDR, then Eisenhower. FDR expanded the federal government too much, but I generally agree with what he did and why he did it even if I don't agree with how he did it.

    FDR was a Socialist/Communist disguised as a sympathetic cripple. He was willing to sacrifice millions of American lives by goading Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor in order to protect the Soviet Union - his cherished model of political identity - from Germany.

    He simultaneously used the economic duress created to institute an entitlement Governmental abuse of power which has caused incredible damage to our society, nearly single-handedly decimated black culture, and set us on the course of permanent indentured servitude to Government.

    Your first choice was positively horrid.

    You haven't said why you like Eisenhower, but what I find interesting is that - if my suspicions on your proclivity to like Eisenhower's warnings of the "military industrial complex" are correct - you seem blissfully unaware of the degree to which FDR laid the groundwork to establish that complex.

    Your choices stand in conflict with themselves.

    Roseavelt(?) Did a good thing creating National parks, not sure about the rest of what he did. Kind of ironic for a man who traveled the globe hunting for sport, possibly a mitigation action?
