Via new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll:
For obvious reasons.

Zombie Reagan 2012.
I’m with Chris W and Lewis Black on this one. Dig up Reagan and swear him in.
“It’s time we elected a dead president, and in fairness, I think Regan’s time has come gain.”
“Reagan scared everybody – including the North Koreans!”
“And when we roll his body up Pennsylvania Avenue, and prop him up, and swear him in, I promise you that NOBODY will EVER f*ck with us again!”
Most reputable economists now realize that FDR extended a dip in the business cycle into a 10 year depression. Like JFK he has become a piece of mythology sustained by silly liberal thinking.
I have listened to so many older people that I don’t agree. Although I am critical of Roosevelt for a few reasons, Roosevelt was a very popular man in his time.
Libra: Both Hoover and FDR extended the dip into a more than decade long depression. The sad thing is that FDR ran as a balance the budget alternative to Hoover’s big deficit ways. Oh, FDR also ran as a peace candidate in 1940. Go figure.
William Henry Harrison? The man got sick and died without ever really serving as president. Not much of a record to judge by.
Here’s a list of when and why you would pick a liberal president:
When you want to pick up some chicks with low moral character to party with; Bill Clinton in a heartbeat.
When you want to devise a scheme to defraud the American people of any way to accumulate wealth – toss up between Woodrow Wilson and FDR.
When you want someone to pull dogs’ ears, drink whiskey and concoct a method to enslave the blacks and keep them on the plantation – LBJ without a doubt.
When you need someone to support the Muzzie Middle East and sell Israel down the river – Jimmie Carter, no doubt.
When you want to play some golf, blow a joint (or your buddy) or snort a line – BHO.
Yes, there are times when your “go to liberal” guy will be needed; just not in this world.
The economic problems that we have today are the results of Legislation, not just the President, but Congress as well. Over-regulation put a stranglehold on the throat of business in America and yet at the same time Law Makers changed the Laws pertaining to the discrimination against Marxist States which are “Slave States” (97-98% of the populations of Communist Countries who are not Card Carrying Communists are slaves) so that the same businesses that have been over-regulated here in America, could without financial consequence and in order to “maximize profits” , move the technology and jobs to these Marxists States and take advantage of cheap labor. The labor market in America has essentially been expanded to the slave labor of Marxists Nations (and the child labor of nations like India, for they have no child labor laws). That is who Americans are competing with for jobs and yet, this has been going on gradually ever since Richard Nixon was President.
Under the Reagan Administration the business environment in the USA improved, but what I stated above was already set into motion. We live in a nation that no longer discriminates against nations that engage in Human Rights violations. So I pose this question, “If we as a nation are not concerned about Human Rights violations abroad and are only concerned about maximizing profits abroad, are we as a nation, really concerned about Human Rights violations here?”. Somehow, I think the answer is, “No.”.
I once heard it said, “The Laws of the Land are based on the Common Beliefs of the People of the Land (or Nation)”. So what have the “common beliefs” become in America so that “Human Rights” are now irrelevant? Should anyone be surprised if the “norm” becomes Tyranny?
Reagan or Calvin Coolidge, for me.
RR…pray for us and the nation that you love.
