I'd say he's the United States most badass president. What do you think?

Andrew Jackson was an idiot who had no business being in the oval office. This area of American History is my focus period in college, but it's 3:30 in the morning and I have an essay to write. I'll debate later.

no other American President was as badass as Old Hickory. He dueled constantly and believed in the spoils system. I say the only bad thing he did though was decimate the Native Americans through his federal actions.

I liked Jackson.

He dueled one of the greatest marksmen in the United States and defeated him by letting the man shoot him first. Talk about guts.

Badass. Often duelled people with his walking stick. One of his presidential campaigns involved slurs against the opposition calling them pedo's. Guy tried to assassinate him, failed, then Old Hickory beat the shit out of him with his cane.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

The spoils system is the worst thing to happen to politics... ever.

Grant FTW! (because the 50 dollar bill looks bad ass, and its because of him. Seriously, he has a bad ass portrait)



And a hugely corrupt administration. Win!

He was certainly a war hero (though the war was over when he won he battle), but soldiers rarely fare well as President.

William Henry Harrison- Died in a month
Zachary Taylor- Died after a year
Ulysses S. Grant- Suffered from ineffective leadership and a corrupt cabinet
James A. Garfield- Died after a couple months (assassinated)
Dwight G. Eisenhower- Fairly ineffective, didn't support desegregation until it looked as if he'd lose re-election.
John F. Kennedy- Assassinated

The only ones that really did okay for themselves were Washington and Theodore Roosevelt. War hereos don't always make good presidents.

Its all about that Samuel Adams. Mans a ****in beer!!!


Samuel Adams was the second cousin of John Adams, our second president. Samuel Adams was not only a brewer but an activist in favor of revolution from Britain. Samuel Adams is my favorite beer though.

But he did preside over one of the largest periods of economic growth our country has ever seen.

Mmmhmm, but I've always been part of the belief system that many key parts of the American economy do not lie with the President. Also, he was a firm believer in laissez-faire economy and the Government shouldn't play apart, thus giving him even less power in the economic growth of the country. I think that a lot of the reason why the economy began to boom was because all of the new jobs that were created in the 50s to keep up with new technology.

On the flip-side, he presided over the biggest era of social unrest and paranoia the country has ever seen. African Americans were just beginning to get recognized, yet he refused to send troops in aid of them as they went to school and what not. If it wasn't unpopular, he would have continued to do it. He also never renounced anti-communism sentiment by doing which, he semi-approved of it. He could have stomped down, but McCarthy was allowed to run rampent in Congress.

He seemed to be very big on staying out of everything...

jackson was a badass, but roosevelt was much cooler.

my us history teacher claims that he's a distant relative of jackson, it's pretty funny. i do respect andrew because he took serious advantage of his presidential power and therefore actually did something unlike some presidents. but seriously, roosevelt = the sex.

Does anyone else call many presidents from the 19th century by their shortened names? I.E. Andy Jack and Tom Jeff?

Jackson was pretty much a douchebag, imo.

He didn't uphold constitutional law unless it advantaged him, what kind of asshole is that.

most historians agree that grant was the single worst president in the history of the united states. he only was reelected for a second term because of his war hero status.

john mccain?......


EDIT:
my vote is for william taft. after looking at his wiki page, this is a quote from it. most likely fake, but still made me lol.

One of his secretaries, formally known as his right hand man, described Willam Taft by saying, "He was fat...and he liked it...and he played with it often." This quote came from a time when the secretary walked in on Taft playing with his fat.

Eisenhower wasn't too bad of a president, he was responsible for the connection of the United States via interstate highways, my hat is off to him for that.
