The 5 most badass Presidents ever

I saw this thing on Cracked.com yesterday and it seriously had me in stitches for hours on end.

Anything that has phrases like the following quotes is okay with me and John Wayne.

Referencing Andrew Jackson’s nickname of Old Hickory:

If you’re wondering how a guy we’re calling a bad ass got such a lame nickname, it’s because he used to carry a hickory cane around and beat people senseless with it, and if you’re wondering why he did that, it’s because he was a f***ing lunatic.

Or my favorite president, Teddy Roosevelt:

Teddy Roosevelt was a badass of the people. Roosevelt received letters from army cavalrymen complaining about having to ride 25 miles a day for training and, in response, Teddy rode horseback for 100 miles, from sunrise to sunset, at 51 years old, effectively rescinding anyone’s right to complain about anything, ever again.

Honestly, that made my day yesterday.

  1. TR was the man. He lead walking parties in D.C. while president where they would pick a direction and walk in a straight line, not changing direction for ANYTHING. If it was in the way, they went over it, under it, or through it if at all possible — fences, creeks, buildings, whatever.
