If George Washington were running for president today, he would have a much different experience than he experienced originally. He originally didn’t want to be president but was convinced to do so thereby becoming our first president of the US. People believed in him so much they chose him first of everyone at those times. He was a great leader and did a lot of thinking on his feet to be able to save his troops in war from dying as much as possible. It was a great start and he was a great president.

Today, however, it could be such a different story depending on his actions. President Washington, in my view, would appear to be a conservative person in today’s standards. Anyone who stands firm on their beliefs if often scoffed at for being too conservative especially if it’s back by morals which Mr. Washington was all about. He could be also republican which is not looked upon fondly in the US. However, as for what we know with Washington, he would’ve made every decision with a whole heart and everything good and pure in mind while doing it. He would have passion for his country and want it to be the best possible. He would strive to the ends of the earth to save the US from all its perils that it’s created for itself.

Washington would have great opposition and I believe he’d strive forward and never give up. However, I don’t think he’d go for a second term and he’d gladly hand over the gavel to the next candidate.

I never worried about tooth decay -- only about termites

The only Secret Service protection I ever needed was my cutlass and a swift horse.

No, no, my dear fellow, I don’t wish to cross the Delaware powered by a 200 Yamaha - whatever that is.

Watch a Super Bowl? Why, sir, after the excitement of Yorktown, I fear I might be bored.

If I hadn’t been the country’s first president, I would have devoted my life to farming. Politics and cleaning out the cowshed are closer than you might think.

Ben Franklin a ladies man? Why, any man who dangles a kite in a thunderstorm already knows what playing with fire really means.

Old Abe can be heavy-handed with a joke. For example, he often whispers to me at Mount Rushmore, “George, why so stone-faced?”

My idea of fast food: Three hours at The Kings Tavern in Williamsburg over dinner, wine, and good company. And the only big Mac is our friendly Scotch waiter.

I’m a bit unhappy about the “King’s Speech” getting all those Academy Awards.

Have any of you seen "Drunk History" on YouTube? Viewer Discretion Advised! (I wish they had a segment like this. I can't imagine what Ol' George would be thinking about this right now, if he could see.)
