  1. Favorite President for those on the Left?


    I am just curious who liberal/democrats favorite president is?

    I ask conservative/republican's to try and hold back from getting into any banter with liberal/democrats in this thread. I am really just interested in who their favorite one is/was?

  3. Being a conservative libertarian, you should listen to my word as gospel!

    I didn't have problems with Clinton, some of his progress may have been because of his conservative congress, but all in all was smart when it came to issues.

    Two things I disliked about him was his lack of support for defense, and giving the CRA new legs, eventually leading to the collapse of our economy.

    I know you said democrat, but figured I would say it anyway, not being inflammatory.

    An irony about libdems is that national defense is about the only area where they always tend to be fiscally conservative.

  5. I'm a registered Democrat (currently) and I'd probably go with Clinton. JFK or perhaps FDR might be good picks, but JFK certainily didn't serve as long as Clinton, and being 28 years old, I feel like I've got more exposure to the 8 year Clinton Administration. Obviously, I liked how the country prospered economically at the time (I know he didn't invent the internet, but still) and I liked his style personally as well. The filandering was unfortunate and I don't condone it whatsoever, but apart from that, I'd have to choose Bubba.

    Is it a given that conservatives, Republicans, neoconservatives, etc would all choose Ronald Reagan if the same question had been asked of them?

  9. Thanks for not flaming (yet)...as this is a thread that can easily turn into:


    "Hey libs, who's your favorite President?"

    "Well, I'm a fan of _______"

    "______?!?!? They ruined this country! Here's 8 wikipedia passages that prove it!"

    Not really caring to flame, there has been some fantastic Dem presidents. I am more about the issues rather than the person.

  11. Obama. hello to the death of affirmative action

    having my best friend (WASP) loose out on a scholarship to notre dame even though he had a 4.2 gpa in high school, fluent in latin, eagle scout, and 1370 on his SAT's (1990's SAT, not the new one), this monstrosity of evil will finally fall.

    it sucks that being a half breed (myself) and 1300 on the SAT's with a 3.5 GPA in high school i was accepted to more colleges than he was.

    R.I.P David Berry. we will never forget.

    Are you a Democrat and/or Liberal? If so, who's your favorite President?

    i usually vote democrat, and Obama for the reason above will be my favorite democrat to date. with regards to some of the other stuff he's doing, not so keen on. but if it brings the death keel of affirmative action, nothing will give me greater pleasure.

    AA in my opinion was the bastion of racism against caucasians, and there's no way to fix racism when government allows it to happen on the back end.

    I don't really buy that FDR did anything special. Afterall, the economy stayed fairly stagnant during his admin. It was WWII that ultimately brought us out of the depression. Presbo is trying the same thing now basically and expecting a better result. Not gonna happen IMO. JFK was good for a dem, but frankly, I think he's more of a repub by today's standards if you look at the way the parties have evolved.

    Bubba, from the neck up, was an okay pres IMO. He worked well with a repub congress and got some descent stuff done. He wasn't much of an ideologue like Obama is. I don't think he was really tested though, like others have been. He was prez during a fairly uneventful time.

    I don't know what would lead anyone to believe that AA will go away under Barry.

    its my opinion that AA was created to "level the playing field" with regards to minorities being able to get into college and get government jobs, and achieve the same success that caucasians have enjoyed. it is my hope that having someone non-caucasian in the oval office will convince the NEXT president to say "this program (AA) is archaic and discriminatory towards everyone who isn't a minority." see post 11.

    Yea for the most part. Lincoln is another that comes to mind.

    Yea all I really wanted was to get some perspective on things. Even this banter towrds the bottom is a little too much. All I really wanted was answer and explenation....

  17. Well, you've got my answer. Not sure how many replies will trickle in though, seems like I'm pretty lonely as a lib on this board.

  19. Drink it down, AM. You know it's smooth...




  20. Change we can believe in!

    Well, with a republican congress, he couldn't screw up too much. Was it his specific accomplishments, his charisma, or his character? Perhaps it was his vice president who invented the internet!!!!

    At first thought I said clinton, mostly because he was the one I have more experience with, but with real thought you cannot deny that Thomas Jefferson was the best... though today he would be called a NeoCon Drunk, same with JFK.

  24. Werd! The antiwar, peace at any cost crowd would've blamed JFK for provoking the USSR during the Cuban Missle Crisis. I truley don't think JFK could be a democratby today's standards. It's definitely not the party of JFK anymore. The new repubicans are sorta like the old democrats and the new democrats are really more of a democratic socialist party.

  25. This is hard to say, as JFK would be seen as more conservative than a Republican from today's standpoint.

    Back in the day, the Democrats were the good party!...minus FDR.
