Purely a guess - Common sense might dictate Herbert Hoover but I'll go wild with: George W. Bush.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1932.


And the whole event was immortalized in song in the musical Assassins:

HOW I SAVED ROOSEVELT

[BYSTANDER #1]
We're crowded up close,
And I see this guy,
He's squeezing by,
I catch his eye,
I say to him, "Where do you
Think you are trying to go, boy?
Whoa, boy!"
I say, "Listen, you runt,
You're not pulling that stunt,
No gentleman pushes his way to the front."
I say, "Move to the back!", which he does
with a grunt-
Which is how I saved Roosevelt!

[BYSTANDER #2]
Then-
Well, I'm in my seat,
I get up to clap,
I feel this tap,
I turn-this sap,
He says he can't see,
I say, "Find a lap
And go sit on it!"
Which is how I saved-

[BYSTANDER #3]
Then-
He started to swear
And he climbed on a chair,
He was aiming a gun-I was standing right there-
So I pushed it as hard as I could in the air,
Which is how I saved Roosevelt!

[ALL THREE]
Lucky I was there-

[BYSTANDER #1]
That's why he was standing back so far-!

[BYSTANDER #3]
That's why when he aimed, He missed the car-!

[ALL THREE]
Just lucky I was there,
Or we'd have been left
Bereft of F.D.R.!

[ZANGARA] (strapped in electric chair)
You think that I scare?
No scare.
You think that I care?
No care.
I look at the world-
No good. No fair. Nowhere.

When I am boy,
No school.
I work in a ditch,
No chance.
The smart and the rich
Ride by,
Don't give no glance.

Ever since then, because of them,
I have the sickness in the stomach,
Which is the way I make my idea
To go out and kill Roosevelt.

First I was figure I kill Hoover,
I get even for the Stomach.
Only Hoover up in Washington.
Is wintertime in washington,
Too cold for the stomach in Washington-
I go down to Miami Kill Roosevelt.

No laugh!
No funny!
Men with the money,
they control everything.

Roosevelt, Hoover-
No make no difference.

You think I care who I kill?
I no care who I kill,
Long as it's King!

[BYSTANDER #4 (MAN)]
The crowd's breaking up
And I hear these shots,
And I mean lots-

[BYSTANDER #5 (HIS WIFE)]
I thought I'd plotz-

[MAN]
I spotted hi-

[WIFE]
My stomach was tied in knots-

[MAN]
So I barrelled-

[WIFE]
Harold-!
No, happened was this:
He was blowong a kiss-

[MAN]
She means Roosevelt-

[WIFE]
I was saying to Harold, "This weather is bliss!"

[MAN]
When you think that we might have missed seeing
Him miss-!

[BOTH]
Lucky we were there!

[WIFE]
It was a historical event-!

[MAN]
Worth every penny that we spent!

[BYSTANDERS]
Just lucky we were there!

[BYSTANDER #1]
To think, if I let him get up closer-!

[BYSTANDER #3]
I saw right awat he was insane_
Oh, this is my husband, we're from Maine-

[BYSTANDER #2]
He told me to sit, but I said, "No, Sir!"

[BYSTANDER #4]
This makes our vacation a real success!

[BYSTANDER #5]
Are you with the press?

[PHOTOGRAPHER]
Yes.

[BYSTANDER #5]
Oh God, I'm a mess...

[BYSTANDER #1]
Some left wing foreigner, that's my guess-

[ZANGARA]
No left!
You think I am left?
No left, no right,
No anything!
Only American!

Zangara have nothing,
No luck, no girl,
Zangara no smart, no school,
But Zangara no foreign tool,
Zangara American!
American nothing!

And why there no photographers?
For Zangara no photographers!
Only capitalists get photographers!

[BYSTANDERS] (simultaneous w/ with ZANGARA)
I'm on the front page-
Is that bizarre?
And all of those pictures,
Like a star!

Just lucky I was there!
We might have been left
Bereft of F. D. R.

[ZANGARA] (simultaneous w/ with BYSTANDERS)
No Right!
No fair
Nowhere!
So what?
No sorry!
And soon no
Lucky I was there!
Zangara!
Who care?
Pull switch!
No care,
No more,
No-

(ZANGARA is electrocuted)

Should have gone with common sense - it was Hoover.  Old Herbert, incidentally, was a member of the Society of Friends, aka the Quaker religion.  Now then . . .


what OTHER President was a Quaker???

Easy one: Nixon. I think everybody who was old enough to be politically conscious in the 70s knew that one, because it was one of the most ironic things about him, seeing how he escalated Vietnam.

Nope, the similarity with JFK isn't the three-inital nickname. 

Don't use Google, guys, that would be WAY to easy.
