AND NOW!!! FAFBLOG PRESENTS!! HISTORY'S AMERICA'S FINEST PRESIDENTS!!!

I knew President McCheese back when he was just Mayor McCheese. I think he won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in the fight against nutrition.
In show business terms, President Danny Glover was great in the movie 2012. He stayed at his post and went down with the ship (metaphorically speaking). President Harrison Ford was heroic in Air Force One, too. I really admired him, and was sorry when he became an adulterous murderer in What Lies Beneath.
In the more boring, prosaic world of the history books, I like Ike - he warned us about the Military Industrial Congressional Financial Corporate Media Complex.
Ike: "Hey, watch out for that military-industrial complex ... now, see you on the golf course, suckers, I'm out of here!"
I don't know about McCheese. Oh, sure, he started out as a pretty good mayor, but then rose to national prominence largely on a campaign of demonizing Hamburglers as terrorist-sympathizers.
What the hell is going on? Nobody is mentioning the fact that Jesus is relegated to number four?
You are all going to regret this when you die.
I don't interpret the listing of Jesus as fourth on the list as meaning "fourth best". There are two other quite plausible sorting schemes:
a)ascending order by merit - saving the best for last - for dramatic purposes, this is the way David Letterman does his Top Ten lists, e.g.
b)in historical order - Jesus will be president forever at the End of Days, which hasn't happened yet - but soon, so better get ready - nobody knows the day or the hour.
Hmmm.. I wonder Jesus is there... Many Presidents led the America and I don't heard name Jesus. Who's Jesus is this? If son of God! still I don't believe because the name is "Jesus Christ". Not Jesus alone.
Well that's only fafnir's opinion. It's a good discussion anyway about putting name: Jesus here. This is a BIG issue about the blog (title) post.
Ah, memories. I lived in Colorado when Mayor Bill McCheese was running for re-election against Egg McMuftig. Back then, Happy Meals had real stuff in them. Record players that worked. Little immigrants who'd make more toys for you. We need to reclaim our greatness.
The best President was president Tiny Lister in The Fifth Element. That's what being presidential is all about.
What about President Everly Scrod, architect of the Really Truly This Time We Actually Mean It Peace Accord of the Martian Highlands?
Or President Presidentinator, first bio-animatronic/hologram hybrid to be elected President, striking the final blow for the equality and brotherhood of both sentient and non-sentient media creations.
Harrison's 2 hour inaugural speech has long been remembered for being long. Then, not long after, he was dead. I don't think any politician can top that. Then his Party, the Wigs, died. I know no politician can top that. All hail Henry Harrison.
Which president was is who said "You can't fight in here, this is the War Room!" Regan? Wilson? Oprah?
No no no. Benjamin Harrison, because he had that great song in that Disney movie that had a campaign musical rumble between his team and Grover Cleveland's. The musical exchange of
He's far beyond comparison!"
"Let's put it over to Grover!"
is permanently burned in my memory and I have no idea why.
Which president was it who said "You can't fight in here, this is the War Room!"?
You are thinking of President Merkin Muffley, portrayed by Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
