Again, this is a triple-elimination tournament with pairings set up by initial random draws. This is not to be taken seriously, but to exercise perspectives of how different Presidents faced their duties, crises, and opportunities.

As before, no actual politicians were harmed in the creation of this post. The cat, while dead, is also no worse off.

The Atom Bomb of Loving Kindness:

Props for #11 --
"In four short years he met his every goal
He seized the whole southwest from Mexico
Made sure the tariffs fell
And made the English sell the Oregon territory
He built an independent treasury
Having done all this he sought no second term
But precious few have mourned the passing of
Mister James K. Polk, our eleventh president
Young Hickory, Napoleon of the Stump"
(Source - They Might be Giants)
Go! Mr. James K.!!!
