    Default A Presidential Fight to the Death *Who ya got???*

    In a Mass Knife Fight to the Death Between Every American President, Who Would Win and Why?

    Read this Bloggers predicition > http://faceintheblue.wordpress.com/2...d-win-and-why/


    My money would be on Teddy for sure, with Jackson, Grant, Washington, Lincoln making the Top 5.

    Also will say that Hayes and Pierce and maybe even Ike could crash into the Top 5 unsuspectingly
    .



    To begin, here were the original conditions of the hypothetical, as suggested by the redditor Xineph:

    o Every president is in the best physical and mental condition they were ever in throughout the course of their presidency. Fatal maladies have been cured, but any lifelong conditions or chronic illnesses (e.g. FDR’s polio) remain.

    o The presidents are fighting in an ovular arena 287 feet long and 180 feet wide (the dimensions of the [1] Roman Colosseum). The floor is concrete. Assume that weather is not a factor.

    o Each president has been given one standard-issue [2] Gerber LHR Combat Knife , the knife [3] presented to each graduate of the United States Army Special Forces Qualification Course. Assume the presidents have no training outside any combat experiences they may have had in their own lives.

    o There is no penalty for avoiding combat for an extended period of time. Hiding and/or playing dead could be valid strategies, but there can be only one winner. The melee will go on as long as it needs to.

    o FDR has been outfitted with a [4] Bound Plus H-Frame Power Wheelchair, and can travel at a maximum speed of around 11.5 MPH. The wheelchair has been customized so that he is holding his knife with his dominant hand. This is to compensate for his almost certain and immediate defeat in the face of an overwhelming disadvantage.

    o Each president will be deposited in the arena regardless of their own will to fight, however, personal ethics, leadership ability, tactical expertise etc., should all be taken into account. Alliances are allowed.

    You have to think that military training and life experience would be major factors, as would age at the time (of course all were in middle to old age). Surprised you left out JFK (2nd youngest to that point, combat veteran both, plusses although back injury a minus). You also left out GW Bush and he had military training (including SEER), was relatively young, and lives a pretty fit lifestyle. Does seem like TR might be the smart choice; youngest, fit, familiarity with weaponry, military experience, etc.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    I was thinking the same thing...How about DDE, he was a West Point guy...How about Andrew Jackson, he was a tough military guy....but You may be right about JFK, anybody that can survive what he did in the Pacific has to be a tough guy

    Reading the run down of each one on the site is pretty amusing.
