Herbert Hoover totally showed Adolf Hitler who's boss, and George Washington told the Russkies to "tear down this wall".....

Yes, that is my understanding of the case. I suppose they tended to be uncomfortable and he'd take one off when he could. That was a weird war. Lincoln opposed it, as a member of Congress, but voted for funding it, essentially under protest, because he couldn't stop it and didn't want to leave the troops in the lurch.

O that's him? I remember him looking different

He's had a few different looks. In the early 2000's, he had long hair for a while. He even had a full van dyke at one point. Now he's dressed in black and red colors instead of he more traditional blue and red.

I have always loved the character though.

As we were returning to Washington, D.C., from vacation in the Orion Nebula, the Obamas, their dogs, and I, the TARDIS holding tanks were accidentally purged when Bo tried to catch my companion's cat and somehow pushed a button. Tachyons and gravitons were released over the White House and landed on the pussy grabber as Bo tried to grab a pussy, causing president Fubar to become even more confused. Thanks, Obamas. ;-)

Where are John Connor and that good version of the bad Terminator when you need them? Think of all the stuff they could stop!

Did he just call Andrew Jackson gay?

Jackson also won the popular vote THREE TIMES. He lost his first attempt at the Presidency in 1928, when due to several candidates running, the election went into the House of Representatives.

Jackson also used a show of force to get South Carolina to back down in the Nullification Crisis of 1833.

The firearms were later examined to see why they misfired. No reason for the misfires could be found. My guess is that the bullets were too scared of what Jackson would have done to them.
