Who’s that Prez Quiz?

CONGRATS MARK!  Have you been studying?

In honor of the the new President  this week’s quiz is full of quotes from past Presidents (of the United States!) and one from our new President.

Here’s how to play…Identify the President and leave a comment with the # and the name and I’ll cross it off the list. No Googling, that’s cheating and no fun! 

Possible Presidents left-Wilson, Eisenhower,  Truman, Washington, Nixon, Clinton, CArter,  Kennedy

1.” A man is not finished when he is defeated.  He is finished when he quits.”–RICHARD NIXON

2.” We cannot be both the world’s leading champion of peace and the world’s leading supplier of the weapons of war.”–JIMMY CARTER

3. “All great change in America begins at the dinner table.”  RONALD REAGAN, Mark

4. “I claim not to have controlled events, but confess plainly that events have controlled me.”  ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Mark

5. “You can’t know too much, but you can say too much.”  CALVIN COOLIDGE,  Janet

6. “Do not pray for easy lives.  Pray to be stronger men.”–JOHN F KENNEDY

8. “I would rather belong to a poor nation that was free than to a rich nation that had ceased to be in love with liberty.”–WOODROW WILSON

9. “I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left and hurl rocks at those in the center.” –DWIGHT D EISENHOWER

10. “Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’  liberty’s teeth.”–GEORGE WASHINGTON

11. “Every nation in every region now has a decision to make.  Either you are with us, or are you with the terrorists.”  GEORGE W BUSH, Elena

12. “Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”     FRANKLIN D ROOSEVELT, Jason

13. “I assume the Presidency under extraordinary circumstances…This is an hour of history that troubles our minds and hurts our hearts.”  GERALD FORD, Kathy

  1. #11 – that sounds like W’s famous speech that made my skin crawl.

    I can’t wait to check back and see all the answers! There are some really interesting quotes here. (I love your quizzes, BTW!)

    You are correct! I bet you never thought you’d see your name right next to W’s :)

  2. Euw! Could we insert some additional text such as “was never voted for by” ?!?
    :D

    (I’m just kidding, I’ll be a big girl about it!)

    I find it is easier to be big about it now that he’s back in Texas :)

  5. #13 – I think that was Obama.

    I thought that might trip people up because he certainly could have said it! #13 was not Obama.

  6. 4 is Lincoln and 15 is the guy with a week on the job. We missed you last week, by the way.

    A list of Presidential quotes and the one with “change” is from Reagan? Yowza.

    I had a much better time watching the coverage and I didn’t see you on tv! I can’t wait to hear details next time I visit (my goal is early spring).
