Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt
You're most like FDR! You've got big ideas and you know how to rise to the occasion. You believe in social programs, American leadership on the world stage, and you know that there's nothing to fear, but fear itself! Franklin D. Roosevelt was born in New York in 1882. He was the longest serving President with four consecutive terms. He is credited for policies that brought the U.S. out of the Great Depression and for leading the nation during World War II. Due to Polio, FDR was paralyzed from the waist down - a fact that many Americans didn't know
John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy
You're JFK! Sexy, optimistic, inspirational and controversial, your Presidential twin was born to a influential New England family in 1917. He entered politics in 1947 after serving as a commander in the South Pacific during World War II. JFK was controversially elected in 1961 after winning by just two-tenths of one percent. His presidency was dominated by confrontations with the Soviet Union. Kennedy was famous for his steamy affairs, especially with Marilyn Monroe. He was assassinated in 1963, after less than three years in office
You're most like Thomas Jefferson! You're a patriot, you believe in the Constitution and value American liberties. The third of ten children, Thomas Jefferson was born in 1743 in Virginia. As the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson was one of the most influential Founding Fathers. As President, he lead the U.S. into its first war on foreign soil on the "Barbary Coast" in North Africa. He had a beloved pet riding-horse named Caractacus. Saddle up and brush up on the Constitution, because you're most like Jefferson!
You're Chester Arthur! Never heard of him? Don't worry, he is one of the hidden gems of American Presidents. Born in Vermont in 1829 to a Father who immigrated from Ireland and a Mother from Vermont, Arthur rose up the ranks of the Republican Party in NYC. After just half a year as vice president, Arthur found himself in the executive mansion after the assassination of President Garfield. His presidency was marked by civil service reform, increased trade, and immigration. You may not always be appreciated, but like Arthur you're an anti-corruption reformer!
You're most like Richard Nixon! Don't worry, there's a lot more to Nixon than just Watergate. He had big ideas and a powerful personality. Born in Yorba Linda, California in 1917, Nixon served in the Navy during World War II. He was elected President in 1969 when over 300 U.S. soldiers were dying a day in Vietnam. Domestically, Nixon advocated for a "New Federalism" with more States' rights and a small federal government. He was notoriously paranoid, racist, and had a problem with lying. He famously said: "When the President does it, that means that it's not illegal."
You're most like Woodrow Wilson! You're an idealist and a serious thinker. You'd make a great professor or diplomat. Wilson was born in Virgina in 1856. His mother was an immigrant from England and his Father was a native of Ohio. Wilson served as President of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910, and then as the Governor of New Jersey. He was elected President in 1913 and lead the nation during World War I. After the War, Wilson focussed his efforts to establish world peace and national self-determination for oppressed peoples
You're most like Ronald Reagan! Don't stress, even if you're not a die hard Conservative, Reagan is consistently ranked one of the great Presidents. You probably believe in a strong American foreign policy and a small federal government. Born in Illinois in 1911, Reagan set out to be a star in Hollywood before entering politics. He served as Governor of California from 1967 to 1975. As President, he advocated for cuts in federal programs and arms build up. He notoriously denied global warming by saying "trees cause more pollution than automobiles"
You're most like Andrew Jackson! The 7th President was born on the Tennessee frontier in 1767 to two immigrants from Northern Ireland. Jackson's military career started at 13 when he joined a militia in the Revolutionary War. He played important roles in the War of 1812 and in numerous wars against Native Americans. He served two terms from 1829 to 1837, and paid off the entire national debt (the only time in U.S. history). He had a pet parrot, Molly, whom he taught to swear. You're a "good ol' boy", just like Jackson, always ready for the next frontier (but maybe you should leave your guns at home)
