Not all Presidents were as underwhelming as Bushi Jr.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, JFK... all are considered heroes by most standards.
What people tend to forget is that the President of the United States is a human being. Part of the reason our founding fathers created the government
they did was the knowledge that the world was just getting too darn big for one man to handle, while at the same time mankind is only capable of
remembering a few very important faces. In other words, people always need someone to credit or blame for their problems, and the President provides
exactly that outlet for frustration.
And sometimes you just get a real rotten banana that makes the whole hill smell like monkey exrement. Right now, we have no reason to celebrate our
President. He's an incompetent, power-hungry, warmonger, and an embarassment to the nation in front of the entire world. But I still celebrate those
that came before him, and I still consider it a fine and beautiful country capable of great things, due in part largely to several of the men who once
sat in the oval office.
