Rankings of our Presidents, focusing on the presidential achievements, leadership qualities, failures and faults (such as corruption).

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Political scientist Walter Dean Burnham noted the "dichotomous or schizoid profiles" of presidents, which can make some hard to classify. Historian Alan Brinkley said, "There are presidents who could be considered both failures and great or near great (for example, Nixon)". James MacGregor Burns observed of Nixon, "How can one evaluate such an idiosyncratic president, so brilliant and so morally lacking?" </div></div>

He cut taxes, and was never able to turn the damage around, and ended up raising them six times! Still, he oculdn't overturn the damage.

whiole the right bashes Obama, they dn't bother to acknowledge at all, that one third of the stimulus money was a huge tax cut, nor do they consider what a mess their towns and counties would have neen in with no teachers, policemen, or firemen.

The right, seems to just blithely rearrange the truth to fit the RW agenda....

Where was the outrage when Reagan took over the air traffic control industry. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif
