Presidential Fun Facts

Presidential Fun Facts

Good morning my fellow Americans.  Since our presidential season is in high gear I thought I’d share a few fun facts about some of our former presidents.  Here they are…    

·       George W. Bush and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner are cousins!
·       President Lyndon Johnson smoked at least 3 packs of cigarettes a day.
·       John F. Kennedy was the first Roman Catholic President.
·       Jimmy Carter is the first U.S. President to have been born in a hospital.
·       Every U.S. president with a beard has been a Republican.
·       Franklin Pierce was arrested while president for running over an old lady with his horse, but the charges were later dropped.
·       Believe it or not, Andrew Jackson's tombstone does not mention that he served as a US president!
·       Herbert Hoover was the first president to be born west of the Mississippi in West Branch, Iowa.
·       No president of the United States was an only child.
·       Abraham Lincoln was a licensed bartender.
·     Four of the past five presidents have been left-handed (even though only 10% of our population are lefties); they are Ronald Reagan, HW Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. Only George W. Bush was a rightie.
·       Gerald Ford was an all-American football player at the University of Michigan and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers (Go Pack go!), however he decided to not play pro football.
·       And finally, George Washington for many years, grew marijuana in his garden.

There you have ‘em, fun facts about past presidents as the Bottom of our News on this Friday, October 5, 2012.  I’m David Drewelow and I approve this message.
