    Within my own lifetime? Reagan, hands down. A witty, fatherly, 'happy warrior', whom I would not hesitate to have as a professor, boss, or in-law. The kind that would chide you for being a dumbass, but you'd still feel good about it. Four words still make me smile, "There you go again."

    All around?

    Real Presidents: T.R , Calvin Coolidge, Truman.

    Fictional : the one from Independence Day. President Andrew Whitmore(?). . . All the hot of Kennedy, the 'happy warrior' of Reagan.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    I'm sitting here try to picture what our current president would say were our nation and/or planet to face a kinetic military action conducted by immigrants from outer space.

    Don't know, I think we'd be obliterated by that point. :p

    the dumbass would be cowering under the desk in the Oval Office shortly after the helicopters got blown up and end up being blown up by the City-ship that destroyed DC....then the human race would end up enslaved/extinct because Will Smith and Jeff Goldbloom wouldn't be able to infect the aliens computers with a virus and a nuke it

    Nixon were president today with the antics of the last few DIMoRATS in the office, his "crimes" would have been akin to stealing candy from the penny jar as a child. Today's DIMoRATS are criminal in the open. If conservatives controlled the large media the way liberals do, there would never be a DIMoRAT elected to national office within a few years.

    If we define being "presidential" as exuding leadership, that is, looking like you're in command and confident, then the gold standard would have to be George Washington. After that, Reagan is second. Then, it's Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, JFK, Lincoln, Jefferson, Madison, Eisenhower, Cleveland and Garfield.

    The least presidential is Obama, followed by Clinton and then Carter.

    my only quibble with your list is Garfield....he was only in office for 6 months before dying and spent 3 of those on his death bed.

    I would say that Chester Arthur really stood up and put the Stalwart's in their place after he became Pres and stayed his own man

    Agreed. My bad. I actually meant Arthur.

    And your thoughts on Clinton would be...
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
