SOME PRESIDENTS ARE ELECTED AT THE EXACT RIGHT TIME IN A MATCH OF THEIR SKILL SETS AND WHAT THE COUNTRY NEEDS. OF COURSE, NO ONE PRESIDENT IS ALL GOOD OR ALL BAD.
HERE ARE SOME TERRIFIC PRESIDENTS, IN MY OPINION:
Bill Clinton: regardless of his sexual stupidity and disregard for the honor of the presidency and the oval office, I'd give anything to have him back as president. Our country was really great then.
|DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER|
WHAT A LEADER. Again, right man at the time. Our country was going down the tubes. Despite his socialistic leanings, our country needed those programs to get us out of trouble. Was it the beginning of the welfare state? Big Daddy Government? Yes. But I think we had no other choice at the time.
Woodrow Wilson was a thoughtful man, way ahead of his time. His anti-isolationist policy ran against popular sentiment, but he was totally correct in starting global thought with the League of Nations. It was our loss that it failed.
|ABRAHAM LINCOLN. ENOUGH SAID.|
|GEORGE H. W. BUSH|
I'll tell you why both men are here. In my opinion, these two men had more foreign policy experience than most presidents combined. They were probably the most prepared and experienced for the job. I realize Nixon had personal problems that ruined his presidency, but his opening to China is one of the most important steps for our current world. And maybe "Daddy George" didn't know how a supermarket functioned, but I don't care. He was an experienced leader and is a very fine gentleman.
I'm not getting into Halliburton, etc. All presidents have issues. I look at the big picture.
AND RONALD REAGAN----
I'm sorry this ran yesterday without him. what was wrong with me? He was the right man at the right time. After Carter destroyed our reputation around the world by making us look weak, Reagan rode in on his white horse and straightened everybody out. The US regained her strength, and Americans were once again proud of the greatest nation on earth.
