    OK so you judge historians by their perspective. So tell me who you consider to be a reputable historian?

    Well, if that doesn't work, he can expect a phone call. No one wants a phone call from the POTUS.

    ........... seriously

    FDR was one the bloody reasons the US had prestige LOL. His political goodwill in helping the Brits against the Nazies while the rest of the US political establishment stuck their head in the ground. His determination in digging the US and the world economy out of the hole created by in large by a US melt-down, and his start of the great American and world economic revival that lead to the huge middle class in the US and in the industrialized world. Seriously you need a massive reality check and stop drinking the far right wacko revisionist cool aid.

    Oh wow! There are loads. Simon Schama, Hugh Thomas, Alison Weir, David Baird, John Mann, Anthony Beevor, Doris Kearns Goodwin and so on, and so on. There are so many better writers out there than Johnson and thousands of better scholars. He writes history as polemic. If that's what you like...
