50 thoughts on “It’s a Presidential Giveaway! Day One”

  1. My favorite president is Andrew Jackson because he hates banks and reduced the national debt down to almost zero. It’s sad that there are no more presidents like him.

  2. I agree with Christina in favoring Roosevelt (I’m assuming she means FDR, although Teddy seems like he would be a lot of fun to hang out with, especially in the woods). From what I remember from history class and reading on my own, he did a lot of great things and was an amazing person. Also, Eleanor seems like she would have been an amazing woman to get to know.

  3. My favorite elected (popular) president is Gore..

    Really, I’d have to say both Roosevelts. They did so much to protect and grow the country.

  4. I’m a Lincoln fan. He went through one of the toughest times in our nation; on top of that, he had to suffer the loss of children and yet he was able to bring the Civil War to an end and keep the country from dividing.

  5. Thomas Jefferson for writing the Declaration of Independence and all around smart guy.

    I like this story:

    When President John F. Kennedy welcomed forty-nine Nobel Prize winners to the White House in 1962 he said, “I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent and of human knowledge that has ever been gathered together at the White House – with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

  6. It’s gotta be Abe for me. He dealt with a lot and overcame a lot (I won’t repeat what the other commenters above said) Plus, he really rocked the beard!

  7. I respect President Lincoln because he exercised wisdom and courage in his decisions. Abolishing slavery was not a popular idea (even in the north!) during his presidency.

  8. I must vote for JFK.
    While I believe Lincoln and FDR were the towering greats of presidents, I was not alive during their tenure. But I lived through JFK’s time, and he gets my vote.

  9. I have to agree with those who’ve said Thomas Jefferson – he was a brilliant writer with a smart mind, and also an inventor! He invented automatic doors – how cool is that?

  10. Dead = LINCOLN. Reasons already stated by everyone else….

    Living = OBAMA. Ok, I know he’s only been President for a month, but…
    – His values and my values line up about 95% of the time; and even when they don’t (mainly: abortion), I love the way he is respectful to those with opposing views.
    – I appreciate the example he has set with his marriage and how he has raised his children.
    – I’m constantly amazed by how he’s built a dedicated, *excited* grassroots constituency — it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in my lifetime.

  11. Obama-he really inspired me to do something for my country rather than waiting for what the country can do for me.

  12. John Adams: Wrote the Massachusetts Constitution which formed the basis for the US Constitution…. principled man… overcame lots of obstacles… including early days of the Revolution where he basically expected to be caught and hung as a traitor…. raised another President (John Quincly Adams)…. was a romantic husband (check out his letters to Abigail)…. didn’t like Jefferson or Franklin much… Check out David McCullough’s classic book on Adams…

  13. Mine is president Lincoln because of his great fear of the Lord. That fear is what kept him on his knees, which is the place any leader should spent the majority of their time!!

  14. Mine is Clinton, because he showed us all that presidents are people too 😉 temptation doesn’t care about class or occupation. Plus, the event helped spur Eminem’s career into popular culture! haha

    My real fav is Teddy Roosevelt. Shot in the chest before a speech, and decides to go through with it. Speaks for 90 minutes with a bullet lodged in his chest, bleeding the whole time. Amazing. The bullet was never removed. “but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose”

  15. I’ve liked William Henry Harrison since I did a report on him in school, way back when. He never got much of a chance to fulfill his presidency, and that is tragic. Thank you so much for offering this giveaway! eyeslikesugar [at] gmail [dot] com

  16. That’s a hard one–I have a great respect for FDR. He literally worked himself to death to help usher in a new era in this world, bringing us through WWII and passing away just days before D Day. His sacrifice is humbling. I love all the others noted above, for the very same reasons they’ve all mentioned.

  17. Financially speaking JFK would be my faborite, because he donated his whole salary to charity and simply considered the office honor enough. Truly an inspiring example.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. I have many favorites. I was in high school with JFK, I was at an impressionable age and hung on to every event like a little sponge. But as I grew and matured FDR ecoomic and international policies stuck me as inspired.

  19. My favorite president was always Calvin Coolidge because he was so famous for never talking. If you read his quotes though, he said a LOT of good stuff; I guess people don’t want wit & pith but long, florid speeches.

    “I have never been hurt by what I have not said.”
    “If you don’t say anything, you won’t be called on to repeat it.”
    “No man ever listened himself out of a job.”

    There is also a story that Dorothy Parker, seated next to him at a dinner, said to him, “Mr. Coolidge, I’ve made a bet against a fellow who said it was impossible to get more than two words out of you.” He replied, “You lose.”


    There are so many presidents who are extroverted, and it’s nice to have an introvert to look up to.

  20. Fav pres… that’s hard. There have been many i have liked alot, but i’m more used to thinking which ones i HATE the most. 😉

    I guess Jefferson: He kept us out of a horribly costly war with Europe (one we weren’t prepared to be in), he bought something like half the continenet (at a good deal), invested in this purchase by having some reputable dudes investigate it, tried to be honest with himself, others, help his fellow man, &c. As a president, he didn’t do too badly, but like most from that period, they were still figuing out how to balance the power of parties, and such.

    I never did like him creating his “Jefferson Bible”, but I really more feel baddly for the Diests, then anything else. Just wish they could have seen and accepted that miracles are a part of His power & wisdom, beyond just His teachings.

  22. If not, you can play during breaks or after work hours.
    Offline games, whether for the PC or the console, usually support controllers.

    Trying to play “Baby Decks DJ” is often a lot more realistic experience because of the i –
    Pad’s touch-screen capacity, weighed against pressing buttons over
    a controller because done within some other turntable mixing online games.

  23. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be actually something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try
    to get the hang of it!

  24. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a
    format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though!

    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks
