Elite 8: Best President of all Time

Thanks again for another great poll/bracket/blog...  Here goes nothing:

North Region:  Two presidents on Mt. Rushmore in the same region.  Not fair to TR.  TR is my favorite pres, GW is father of the country.  Mr. Rushmore might not exist if not for TR and his love of nature and parks.  This country might not be if not for GW's leadership.  Sorry George.  You're a great man.  You appointed the first Supreme Court and in the early years of this great nation, they did most of the shaping.  Teddy was, as he would say, "Bully."  Not appreciated enough so I am showing mine.  My vote is for Theodore Roosevelt.

South Region:  Very tough again.  But have to go with one of my favorite historical figures, Thomas Jefferson.   You were a great man DDE. 

East Region:  Lincoln steered us through the civil war.  Reagan through the cold war.  What was the bigger crisis?  Bigger threat to this nation?  Very debatable.  Lincoln was quite loathed at the time he took office.  Had to sneak into Washington DC (did you know this?).  For me, an easy decision.  Abraham Lincoln .  Don't want to rip on Ronnie.  Abe was the better man.

West Region:  Much is predicated on what if with regard to JFK.  We know Harry but JFK didn't get to his third year anniversary in office.  Too bad.  I think Harry got a great seed, shows respect which he deserves.  But I have vote my heart and choose John F. Kennedy.

Looking forward to the results.

Cleve, I guess I had the brain on snooze for the earlier rounds for this one.  Anyway, here's my votes.  Keep up the good work.

North:

George Washington.  Although I think Teddy Roosevelt was one of the greatest of all times, Washington was our first.  He had to start from square 1 and manage a country.

South:

Thomas Jefferson.  He is the one who wrote the Declaration Of Independence that got us on our way to becoming the nation we are today.

East:

Ronald Reagan.  Helped to bring down the Iron Curtain.  He made sure that our military was the best in the world.  Did we have anymore trouble out of Libya after we dropped a few bombs on them?

West:

Harry Truman.  He probably had the most difficult decision of any of the Presidents to date regarding the use of the atomic bomb against Japan.  His decision saved countless American lives since we did not have to invade Japan.

Elite 8: Best President of all Time

I cannot believe James Madison is not in the elite 8. Completely ridiculous. I call for a recount. (there is no bias in this statement, just because I went to James Madison University and grew up 15 miles away from Montpelier, where he lived)

G-dub, TJ, Abe, Truman
