2 things that could have bumped the Teddy Roosevelt argument: 1: He gave a 45 minute speech AFTER BEING SHOT! He didn't even have the bullet removed later. 2: Said of him after his "death": "Death had to take him sleeping, for if he had been awake, there would have been a fight."

What about the very first man, George Washington?

He was the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War and later became the First President by Unanimous Decision. He even presided over the convention that drafted the Constitution.

Without George there would be NO Lincoln or FDR. Though I'm surprised Kyle didn't bring up the fact that FDR served Four, yes, FOUR, terms, which caused the Constitution to be amended to only allow the Two that there is today.

Uh oh. Let's see here. Chris sided against Batman and won and sided against Teddy Roosevelt and won. Also sided against Dr. Who. Now all he has to do is side against Tesla (and win) to become the most hated person on the internet.

that is true and after him John Adams and Jefferson etc...

but I gotta say FDR,Truman,Eisenhower,JFK and JBJ was a good string of great modern presidents that lead us after WWII and early years of Vietnam War.

CAPTCHA: old codger

Uh oh...I haven't even started typing and the Captcha's already getting snarky on me. And why are the Captcha words rocking back and forth as if trying to hypnotise me?

Anyways...I just have to say the fact that Abe Lincoln wrestled surprised me. Although...this does bring a certain politician we had here in Minnesota. You guys should know which one.

Teddy also managed to ditch the Secret Service to spend a few hours in a submarine at sea. It was kind of a big deal in the early 1900's.

FDR is automatically FTL because of Japanese interment camps and court packing threats. Truman was a little ***** who instead of backing the Vietnamese backed the French(First rule of modern warfare, NEVER BACK THE FRENCH) which led pretty directly to the Vietnam war. Eisenhower agreed with FDR to work with the Russians instead of letting Patton steamroll them out of Europe which led to the cold war. JFK was utterly bankrupt as a human being and cheated on his wife every chance he got and was killed before anything but the Cuban Missle Crisis could occur. Don't even get me started on LBJ.



In any case, the answer is obviously Washington, original American Badass.

I personally would rather pick the other presidential Roosevelt, FDR. But Lincoln and Teddy are fine choices as well.

Forget running on the same bill. We need to time travel and have them fight in a match.

Just finished watching if I don't see the Photoshopped twenty five dollar bill of Teddy and Abe in a wrestling ring by next week, I'll lose all faith in the internet.

Against Abe: he may have freed the slaves, but he also revoked the protections of the Constitution in the north and allowed military tribunals to hang American citizens on hearsay. (Which was found unConstitutional after his death)

When it comes to working the Mojo? JFK worked his mojo into Marilyn Monroe. 'Nuff Said

But this isn't about Mojo this is about badassery it seems. I would have to go with Teddy. Abe was awesome and everything but Teddy was quite the badass.
But what about Jackson; he was a bit of a d-bag (so was Teddy, just ask the Indians; that's right you can't because you probably don't know any) but he was also a serious badass.

So much flame bait, but hell, why not.

Psst, they're both Republicans.
Not really flamebait because I'm pretty sure that most people know that the Republicans were the liberal party while the Democrats were the conservative party back in those days.

OT: Must resist urge to paste my AP US History essay on why Lincoln is the best president. I will say that while Lincoln is a superior president, Teddy was a far more badass one.

You forgot to say Teddy is so strong he beat up malaria!Also he was pretty good in Arsenic and Old Lace the best movie of all time.

EDIT: related to malaria. When he threw the strike to attack malaria in Panama it was so strong it separated North America from South America. That's why there is a canal in Panama now.
