    Re: Who was the best president of the last ten

    As far as effectiveness goes, I have to say Richard Nixon. Vision wise I like Kennedy, however because of his premature death I can't honestly state him as our best. For example his handling of the failure of the Bay Of Pigs Invasion.

    Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan.

    I think JFK because he realized the roots of all evil in this country. It cost him his life.

    I think it was Ronald Regan because he had good economic policies and he did most of the stuff that led to the end of the Cold War and the fall of the USSR.

    "Best" is very subjective. Are we to judge by legislative accomplishments during their terms in office? By their character? By the economy during their tenure?

    You may want to check the spelling of Reagan. Even Cheney stated that 'Reagan proved that deficits didn't matter". We now have a 17 trillion Total Accumulated Debt that proves different.

    I fully agree that actions of Ronald Reagan helped bring an end to the Soviet Union. For example his speech at the Berlin Wall and the arms race of the 1980's. Though I feel that far too much of the credit goes to Ronald Reagan himself. Reagan himself was a laid back executive. His cabinet is where all the works of his administration came from, Gipper was effectively just the "Okay-guy".

    I always forget the 'a'. We wouldn't need to worry about our deficit if the liberals would just let us drill for oil in America instead of having to rely on arabs for it. Obama, your response...
