Sorry for the lame title, I really struggled to come up with something and this was the best I could do.  Pathetic, I know.  Anyway, since it is Presidents' Day and I've done the authority figures blog in the past, I decided to let the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook friends weigh in too.

By the way, the picture I posted is of former President Jimmy Carter with Mr. Wrestling II.  Legend has it, Carter was a big fan of Mr. Wrestling II.  He went so far as to invite the wrestling legend to his inauguration, but Mr. Wrestling declined when he learned he had to take his mask off.  Interesting story I thought.

Anyway, the question I posed today on Facebook was "Which Commander-in-Chief would make the best wrestler and why?"  Here are some of your responses.

Greg Mehochko:  Teddy Roosevelt.  C'mon... "the Rough Rider" says it all.  Or Taft.  But only if he took his shirt off a la Big Daddy V.

Sam Hamblin: FDR.  He was the longest reigning President of all time, and we know touting those numbers are important.

Steve Reiter: I thought of the same two Greg did.

Matthew Griffin: Taft.

Adam Testa:  This dude.  The reasons will be obvious once you watch the video. (Video not appropriate for young audiences)

Michael Lugowski: Reagan.

Josh Hansen: Andrew Jackson.

Rusty Smith: Reagan had the mic skills and so did Clinton.

Erik Stensland: LBJ.  Fierce competitor, loves to win the battle.
