    Who do you think was the best US President?

    Don't know.

    I believe one thing...every one since (and including) at least Hoover is a big failure - some more then others.

    FDR was a failure? Reagan was a failure? I think Libs and Cons will disagree with you on at least one.

    You are surely right.


    FDR was a massive failure, imo. Especially before WW2.

    And Reagan? Just look at his massive deficits? Any POTUS that cannot balance the budget when no declared state of war exists is a failure, imo. And I don't even begin to care about the excuse 'we were fighting the Cold War'. Whatever.
    The man was big on small government (good) but posted GIANT deficits...every single year (bad and hypocritical).

    So, if a crappy Prez pisses off so many people that someone shoots him; he is then instantly a good Prez?
