    Reagan was Great. Clinton is a Toad.

  2. Dave says:

    No surprise that that St. Reagan is second place. Conservatives worship that man.

  3. Burgermeister Meisterberger says:

    This is only because Alan Kennedy-Shaffer hasn’t been elected President of the United States….yet!

  4. DELCO Observer says:

    Just shows that at least 34% of your readers are idiots…Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush…seriously? I do think that George HW Bush deserved more support, especially since he was ultimately successful in setting us on a more prosperous path after the disastrous Reagan years, and, unlike his son W, had a winning Persian Gulf strategy!

  5. radnor voter says:

    The fact that anyone considers Obama their favorite over any of these besides Carter proves the idiots are running this country.
