Feel Free to Rank the President 2

(1) Ronald Reagan - America's Cincinnatus who restored America morally, militarily, and economically (to a great extent)
(2) Richard M. Nixon - a savvy strategist in the Cold War but an economic socialist in many regards
(3) George W. Bush - a strong leader in the war on terrorism with the charisma of his dad and the curtness of his mom
(4) Gerald Ford - a moderate who restored America's normalcy after Watergate
(5) George H. W. Bush - a patrician caretaker who won the first Gulf War
(6) John F. Kennedy - a man with vision whose carnal appetite endangered national security
(7) Lyndon B. Johnson - a clever, cunning politician who advanced civil rights and gave America her first war defeat
(8) Bill Clinton - a brilliant, solipsist politician without morals but with charisma who survived the only impeachment of an elected president
(9) Jimmy Carter - a sermonizing, incompetent president with chimeras of respectability

1. Reagan - made Americans proud to be Americans
2. GW Bush - did not waste time realizing the threat of terrorism
3. Ford -
4. Nixon - cusser, appointed Blackmun
5. GHW Bush - read my lips, not going to do it, wouldn't be prudent
6. Jimmy Carter - malaise, the rabbit incident
7. Clinton - that woman Monica Lewinsky, cigars, definition of "is", Waco

Joseph, your comment on Reagan encapsulates what so many of us embraced as we voted for Reagan in his landslide re-election in '88. As to the others, you make very good points.

(1)Reagan-Renoldus Magnus; need I say more?  My hero.
(2)"W"-Courageous and fearless leader.
(3)Nixon-misunderstood by many.
(4)Ford-my uncle was from the same alma mater; said he was a good man. Portrayed as a clumsy idiot by Chevy Chase.
(5)Bush Sr.-prudent...still yet sky-dives...at 80!
(6)Kennedy-I was in utero, happily so, before he was shot; glad it wasn't '73...
(7)Clinton-smooth talkin', dress-staining liberal.  Ugly wife; ugly is as ugly does.
(8)Johnson-showed us his scar; left U.S. scarred, economically.
(9)Carter-epitomized weakness as a leader; lusted after many women. Idiot.  I hope I never get to play for him 'cause I won't!
