    Remember that JFK wanted to bring down the CIA and the FED Reserve. RFK was a pain in the ass of organized crime.

    It's a bit early to judge some of these Presidents, but among them Ronald Reagan clearly stands out as the best.

    I tend to agree, though Bush senior did handle the transition quite well.

    Admittedly Reagan might have done better had he cut spending. The argument would be stronger, however, for the Presidents after winning of the Cold War. After that point the US could paid back the debt.

    Reagan. He made you feel good about being an American. He made you want to be better and to help make the country better.

    Reagan had next to nothing to do with the collapse of the USSR. That was all Gorbachev.
