    Since when do Americans NOT feel good about being Americans? We're the most prosperous, most powerful, and most privileged nation in the world regardless of who sits in the White House.

    Truman, give 'em hell Harry was one of our best presidents, if not thee best of all time. He wasn't a pussy and made the hard decisions at the end of WWII. He had the balls to drop the bomb and save American lives. He was smart in post-war America and saw to the implementation of the Marshall Plan so that Japan and Germany weren't brought to their knees like what happened in post WWI. He saw to it that post WWII Jews had a country of their own and place that they could defend and live in a homeland that was theirs.

    Truman was the best, best, best president of that century. I wish we had more like him.

    He was also a blatant racist and not a particular proponent of civil rights. Nobody is perfect, and as such there's not a single President I would say was absolutely awesome.

    Well i assume that in some cases it's that we have become prosperous, powerful, and privileged at the expense of others. That's one reason. Another reason is that these things make some Americans more prone to hubris and complacency.

    but his idiocy when it came to backing the Decadent French government's desire to reestablish their destroyed colonial empire after the war was one of the most costly mistakes in American History

    Oh, c'mon, you remember what it was like under Carter.

    Oh, wait, maybe you don't.

    You must have missed Carter.
