From a TD
in a TD on the Mount Rushmore of SuperBowl Coaches Ruby posted this Q
Ok, Bigalke and NC, here's a question for you. If Rushmore could be remade NOW would the same 4 presidents still sit there?
My answer to her
Well Teddy is gone quick- He is up there purely becasue of his enviromental policy and a personal favorite of the artist.
His cousin would replace him however- even though I think FDR did as much damage as good to the country long term.
Personally I would not have Jefferson up there either (I'm a Hamiltonian) But who replaces him? Madison? Reagan? I mean not a lot of options.
kinda sad really.
Ruby to me
Reagan?? R u smokin' something?
And how the hell did getting us out of a depression, winning our worlds worst war and assembling the United Nations hurt us in the long run? (take answer to spin room so others can join)
-- ok I am not ABOUT to defend Ronnie to someone who does not know Carter- and considering her Kool-aid drinking leftist thoughts It would be like talking to Michael Moore about whitewater
or Al Gore about the 17th century temp records- or the ARTIC ice cap
1. You really want to go into social spending? with me? no you don;t- trust me
2. Winning a world war - no, Patton and other brave men did that- FDR gave away a chunk of Europe and DDE was running for president. Plus FDR did everything to get us INTO WW2 short of flying a zero himself
3. The UN- you do NOT want me to start on this subject- I have to much respect for you intelligence there Ruby, If we get into it - you are either going to burn out your mental clutch or I am going to have all kinda issues with americas youth
So my responce-
Yes FDR is going up there- warts and all.
the other 3 stay
But what do you say?
