    You got me on that one. My memory from when JFK was elected was that he was the youngest. I guess that shows what trusting memory will do for you. Kennedy was the youngest elected president.

    R.I.P. Cyrano and Roxanne.

    George H. W. Bush was no pansy. A big man, naval aviator, survived being shot down near Ichi Jima.

    JFK had a bad back. No way does he take the title with that working against him.

    Yea JFK was actually in very poor health. Despite being the 2nd youngest President ever, he was probably one of the weakest.

    TR was the youngest but GW actually lead men into battle. He rode a HORSE in the front lines against the Hessian army. He felt he was indestructible & that makes him my TOUGHEST PRESIDENT. He lead a bunch of rag tag fighters through Valley Forge & fought the best army in the world at that time with the cloud of treason hanging over his head. If he lost he would HANG.

    I would make AJ 2nd. Though some of his actions against the Seminoles were just disgusting in my book, the fact that he was the last President besides Lincoln who took on the BANKERS, (BUT SURVIVED) gives him big points in my book. He was also a military leader.

    Lincoln would be 3rd as he PERSISTED. He actually help create the GOP. He lost to 2 races before going to the GOP convention in Chicago in 1860. Many doubted him but he prevailed. He never gave up. Back in those days the convention delegates voted on one ballot & then the top half of the names were then put on the 2nd ballot. Then the top half of those were put on the 3rd ballot. Lincoln was NOT the winner on the 1st or 2nd ballot but by the time the 3rd & 4th ballots were cast he pulled together a coalition of voters that secured him the nomination.

    TR I would make 4th.

    You also have to look @ Madison as he presided over the War of 1812 when the British invaded & burned Washington DC to the ground. He basically wrote the Constitution & the Bill of Rights. He was also TJ's Sec of State.

    And you cant forget TJ who basically wrote the Declaration of Independence & committed Treason, punishable by death, by all of those who signed it. He & Madison created the "Democratic-Republican Party." Anytime you put your nuts on the chopping block, you're a tough guy in my book.
