The Best U.S. President Ever

I was watching a movie the other night.  Air Force One.  You remember.  The one where President Harrison Ford personally kicks the collective asses of a bunch of Russian miscreants and saves the free world.  Quite a story, and it depicts the second best President in the history of these United States.

The third best President in the history of the U.S. was President Morgan Freeman when he single-handedly prevents the United States from imploding while we were awaiting annihilation by a comet in Deep Impact.  A genuine leader if ever there was one.

Best President ever?  Thought you might never ask.  Bill Pullman.  Independence Day.  He deploys himself into a fighter jet to go mano-a-mano with space aliens and saves the Earth from a very bad end.  I saw that movie at a theater in Sacramento, California on it's opening weekend.  Waited in line and sat in a packed auditorium.  When President Bill Pullman gave his "Independence Day" speech just prior to going into battle against those aliens, the assemblage in the theater arose (as one) and gave him a standing ovation.  What a great feeling.

So, there you have it.  The three greatest United States Presidents in the history of the country.

Say what?  They were just CHARACTERS IN MOVIES?????

Nonsense.  I wrote in Bill Pullman for president in the very next election, and might just do so again.
