    Sure we would profoundly disagree on these two.


    However do you disagree with me on the ones I listed?

    As I mentioned earlier, I just don't know enough about historical presidents(ones before my lifetime) to accurately judge. Just not something I have ever taken enough interest in to study up on. My interest tends to run to science over recent history.

    Actually, as far as comparisons go, I think both Clinton and Reagan were quite good. They both had their mistakes, of course, and I typically disagree with most Presidents quite a bit, but when pitted against Carter, Bush 1, Bush 2, Nixon and Ford, Reagan and Clinton come out on top.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Really? So a "Libertarian" thinks that Clinton was a good president?

    I don't recall saying that. Odd how you keep doing that. Interesting. It's also quite odd that a "libertarian" would defend Bush's putrid Presidency. How much more of a statist could you possibly be?

    As for my opinion on Bush. He was too big government, he went socialist in the end, he was mediocre at best.




    Anything else?



    BTW speaking of "statists" wheres your opinion on Obama, I looked over your posts and don't see any.

    No doubt you would see it that way! You seem to struggle with the language.
