I need them to be able to work effectively with congress and the world leaders. If his wife wants to let him **** around on her for 30 years...thats fine. Now...I DO have a problem with the rape and sexual assault/harassment charges, but since they have been discharged...c'est la vie.

    I need my president to be a president...not a saint.
    His morals are what he uses to make judgments about his actions in office.

    Heh, no, I can be objective. I disagree with almost everything hes done, but hes been more effective than Clinton at doing things. He just goes around congress or the laws. Obamacare alone is more than Clinton did in 8 years.

    Of that list, I would have to call Reagan the least bad.

    But that's my point. He wasn't. He didn't get anything done that he wanted. He lost his party the congress and presidency for the first time in decades.

    Your point is wrong. As the democrat president he worked WITH the opposition party to accomplish some extraordinary things. Those are the same characteristics that made Reagan a good leader. He was a smart politician. He knew when to say no, and knew when to say yes. We dont have a monarchy...the president is the EXECUTIVE branch. he helped work to ensure we had an effective LEGISLATIVE branch. He didnt fight it at ever turn and block it.

    Where you lose it completely is when you claim Obama is a more effective leader. Seriously? He is childish, petty, ineffective, and weak.

    Reagan, then probably Kennedy. They were the two authors of the largest corporate tax cuts in American history.

    Therefore, anyone who has something smarmy to say about "trickle-down" or "voodoo" or any other pejorative attached to supply-side economics, don't point to Reagan. Kennedy did it 20 years ahead of him.

    nevertheless history will show that it was on his watch that socialized healthcare began and heralded the downfall of the nation which is the goal of the left so he will be the numbah one prez in their books years from now but it lead to WWIII which wasn't such a good thing.
