Product Description

Do you like history, but hate all of the boring stuff you have to slug through to get to the good stuff?Bad Ass Presidents follows the life of America's warrior Presidents. Forget Bush, forget Obama - They're a bunch of pussies compared to these guys. And, just so you know - we took out all of the boring crap, and left just what you need to know.George Washington rode fearlessly at the head of his troops. During the French and Indian wars he had two horses shot from under him, and four bullet holes blasted through his coat. None of that discouraged him.Andrew Jackson has the dubious honor of being the first President to have an assassination attempt made upon his life. What did the old warrior do? He charged the son-of-a-bitch with his cane and went on with his day. William Henry Harrison defeated the Indian chief Tecumseh at the Battle of the Thames. At the Battle of Tippecanoe he had two horses shot from under him and kept fighting. Zachary Taylor, hero of the War of 1812 and Mexican War, was propelled into office through his military fame. Because of religious beliefs he refused to be inaugurated on Sunday. As a result this was the only day in history America had neither a President nor Vice-President. Abraham Lincoln fought in the Black Hawk War; physically tossed an agitator out of the audience at his first political rally; in the Civil War he often visited battlefields, walking here and there, with no regard for the dangers involved. General Ulysses S. Grant was a hard drinking, rough and tumble fighter who moved from one battle to the next not stopping to rest in between. Of him all Lincoln could say was - "I can't spare him, he fights." Theodore Roosevelt was a gentleman, a scholar, and one of the hardest fighting Presidents we have ever had. He was a frontiersman with his own ranch in the Dakotas; he raised his own regiment, the Rough Riders, to fight in the Spanish American War. As a politician he was fearless, and fought for a "Square Deal" for everyone. Each of these Bad Asses show what a President can be if he doesn't spend his entire day flying a desk, or hiding under it.Read the book! Learn about some real American Heroes.------------------------Most of my books are available as audio books, so if you prefer to listen rather than read, be sure to check them out.
