...So Washington isn't a general or founder, he's a tree. You realize that story's basically a lie, right?

Lincoln's logs, rather than slavery? FDR is wheelchair? Why not just say Obama's black, while you're at it?

Why is it that no one acknowledges the fact that the Republican Congress was largely responsible for the fiscal conservatism of the Clinton Era?

Right Obama-Black it fits. The first black president, even though he is half white.
Washington-determined, that would best describe him.
Lincoln-Emancipation, know it or not it killed the Confederacy.
Adams-Bicameralism
Jefferson-Abolitionist but banisher, exterminator, brilliant would work, it is hard to determine the best word. It is interesting and ironic a slave owner who detested slavery, but had no choice but to keep his slaves because of his debts.
Bush Sr.-indecisive, though his generals were very decisive, he failed to finish the job.
Teddy Roosevelt-expansionist, imperialistic.
FDR-Hard as nails, wheelchair or not.
Nixon-not a crook :lol:

interesting thread here though
