Here is an idea. Like the big issues, have a list of the Presidents with "pro" meaning generally support and "con" meaning generally opposed. I think this would be a nice feature for the site to add. What do y'all think?

US presidents? That'd be a little US-centrist.
DDO Presidents?

What presidents?

Well... Garfield is perhaps the most controversial of the morbidly obese, lasagna loving cats.

What exactly would be accomplished by your suggestion?

It would prove nothing worth knowing.

I see that you are an 18 year old Republican who is anti-President Obama, Pro Drug Legalization and Medical Marijuana, gay marriage, who thinks Mitt Romney should have been President and you are an atheist. I am an atheist too.

All the above beliefs, except hating President Obama, go against the beliefs of the GOP and Mitt Romney"s personal Mormon beliefs. You should probably be an independent or Libertarian.

President Obama won the popular vote with 59,583,302 or 51% votes versus Romney"s 56,960,530 or 49%. President Obama won by 2,622,772 more popular votes.

http://www.examiner.com...

President George Bush had fewer electoral votes than Albert Gore, Jr.: 50,456,002 versus 50,999,897, or 543,985 less popular votes.
http://www.infoplease.com...

President George W. Bush is considered to be one of the worst Presidents in modern history.
http://theweek.com...

As Jill Lawrence points out, the polling of historians seems to back this up.

Nearly 60 percent of the historians and political scientists in a 2006 Siena College survey rated Bush's presidency a failure and two-thirds said he did not have a realistic chance of improving his standing.

A 2010 Siena ranking of presidential scholars rated Bush as one of the nation's five worst presidents. A similar 2009 C-SPAN ranking put Bush in the bottom eight.

What I would rather see is a list of all of the presidents and their stances on the big issues we have. If we did that, maybe we would find out that we agree more with presidents than we think.

"I see that you are an 18 year old Republican who is anti-President Obama, Pro Drug Legalization and Medical Marijuana, gay marriage, who thinks Mitt Romney should have been President and you are an atheist. I am an atheist too.
All the above beliefs, except hating President Obama, go against the beliefs of the GOP and Mitt Romney"s personal Mormon beliefs. You should probably be an independent or Libertarian."

I hear all the time from Democrats about how if the Republicans changed their stance on social issues, that they'd attract more voters. So why not let him remain in it for the change, unless you're in favor of the one party system that has doomed so many countries? He is not only America's future, but the party's future ya know ;)

"President Obama won the popular vote with 59,583,302 or 51% votes versus Romney"s 56,960,530 or 49%. President Obama won by 2,622,772 more popular votes."
So, President Obama basically won the popular vote by a Chicago. xD

"A 2010 Siena ranking of presidential scholars rated Bush as one of the nation's five worst presidents. A similar 2009 C-SPAN ranking put Bush in the bottom eight."
"Barack Obama Is Your 15th Greatest President Ever"

...
So, let me get this straight: After only 2 years in office, Barack Obama was already the 15th greatest president ever? Bush got a second term too.

I'll admit, he was good at one thing: Driving every conservative in the nation to buy countless weapons with pools of ammunition to go along with them. No other president in U.S. History has been as good at that than President Obama.

Hmm. President Obama; NRA Spokesman of the year.
