I would say JFK but he died just over 50 years ago. Really your list though is like asking which kind of topping you'd like with your **** sandwich
I voted LBJ. The last real liberal in the white house and pushed the civil rights and great society agenda and worked toward ending poverty. Republican will say wrong!! I don't care what they say since their only agenda is lowering taxes for trillionaires and corporations, and they wouldn't spit on the average working stiff or poor person. LBJ was wrong on Vietnam, but as many servicemen were killed under Nixon as were under LBJ. This, after Nixon made the ending the war such an issue for any of you who were not around at the time.
Who the heck would vote Reagan or Nixon as best presidents or best as anything? Iran Contra and dozens of felony convictions in Reagan administration, then Watergate under Nixon? Gotta be kidding.
They told me that if I voted for Barry Goldwater we'd
a) get in a war we couldn't win, costing us thousands and thousands of lives and billions of dollars
b) we'd have race riots, skyrocketing crime and police brutality
c) the government would grow out of control and we'd have generations of people dependent on welfare
well he noted, they were right-I voted for Barry and we got all of that
BTW how did those "felony convictions" actually hurt you or the country?
do you know what the black illegitimacy rate was before "the Great Society" (LOL)?
But I calculate 36,756 US killed in Vietnam during the LBJ years and 21,195 in the Nixon years. And that is giving LBJ a pass on the troops killed in January, 1969 and Nov. and Dec. 1963, while charging Nixon for the early Jan 1969 losses. Every year the number of US service personnel killed in Vietnam dropped under Nixon (Unlike the Afghanistan figures for Obama who did escalate the war significantly).
Reagan hands down. Expanded the public sector by massive amounts and in doing so via the military spending gave us the modern IT sectors.
Ronald Reagan was the greatest Socialist to ever live. He spent more on government than Hitler and Stalin combined.
That's a pretty terrible list.
I choose Clinton though.
