    I don not wish to estrange anybody unnecessarily. but without a historical perspective on historic legacies, this kind of talk is useless as regards the subject.

    I am conservative/libertarian, but my reading of American history leaves me a great deal of doubt about considering FDR as the worst president.
    see post 81. I agree that the problem is largely ignorance, but we differ on who is actually ignorant here.

    My argument would be history. US history is widely available in books and I imagine, the internet.

    I understand that no true leaders are without legacies of failure. Historical figures must be judged relevant to their time. FDR succeeded and his legacy is secured. I find that those who attack Reagan on the left are little different in nature than those who attack FDR on the right.

    well, since you are now offering diddly and squat to respond to, does your criteria happen to be of the same quality that came up with that user name?

    Also, he spent more than any other president in the history of the U.S. (even FDR which is definatly an achievement, just not to brag about...) I'm kind of depressed that he's not 100%
