    Re: Who was the best president of the last ten

    My best answer is to go back to Coburn's detailed outline of the federal budget in July of 2011. He didn't put it out until after the 2010 election. However, he had previously stated he would serve only 2 Senate terms.

    Many "liberal" departments were started under Nixon/Ford.

Why is there a Department of Education at the federal level, as an example, and why does it have a budget? I'm sure there are many fine people working in government - get them out of government.

    Especially if the House stays focused on repealing laws--more than passing them--their stated aim--not even Jesus Christ could come "down here" and work with these frickin loons. It will take a Christie RINO to solve things, for better or worse.

    Going into the turn.
    It's JFK by a nose with Ronnie Reagan. Clinton a length behind, with LBJ and Bush 41 neck and neck and Bush-43, Ford and Carter bring up the rear.
    Obama seems to be still back at the gates. It looks like Obama is facing the wrong direction and can't back out.

    I'm not going to take the bait, do your own research.

    I remember reading that heads of state didn't deal in assassination because they were all vulnerable. I also remember reading that there were rumours Kennedy had tried to have Castro assassinated.

    Not much of a factual race-track announcer either? LOL

    It's JFK in the lead with Reagan and Clinton neck and neck for second place, followed by Bush Sr. and Nixon fighting for fourth place. LBJ is just behind but: Obama, Bush Jr., Ford and Carter are all non-starters stuck at the post.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    I just put Clinton neck-and-neck with JFK and Reagan(!) is a close 2nd.
    Reagan's got to be a sentimental vote. The guy was a lunatic. I still can't believe he pulled off that Iran-Contra thing and got a pass from the same people who howled for Clinton's impeachment for dicking around outside his marriage. And as for JFK, if Squeaky Fromme had chambered a round before she pulled the trigger, Gerald Ford might be as fondly remembered.

    Re: Who was the best president of the last ten

    I think Reagan because of his philosophy and because we felt good about ourselves as a country again after the stagflation and other failures of the 70's. Clinton seemed to do what Dick Morris and the polls told him to do, unless he was pressured by Gingrich, who was constantly an inch off of his ass. And JFK, what's the big deal about him, he had a great image. Like his dad said, "It's not what you are that counts, but what people think you are".
