Did the founding fathers feel the president was the chief legislator?

No. Even though the President has the power to veto bills adopted by Congress and even though that is legislative in nature, the President was not seen as the "chief legislator". Congress may still override the veto and pass a law in spite of the veto. Further, while the President may propose certain legislation, he cannot introduce it on his own. He has to get a Representative or Senator to do it for him. Many of the Founders even felt that the President was merely the agent of Congress to take orders from it on how to enforce the laws it passed almost as if he was their employee. During the Constitutional Convention they realized there should be a separation of the executive and legislative powers, and made the President more independent; but never did they think the President was any kind of legislator, much less the chief legislator.
