    NO. FAIL.

    No. Possibly the worst. A senile asshat who decided that being advised by an astrologer was a good idea. As a result he continued prolonging the Cold War far longer than necessary, pointlessly referring to the Soviet Union as “the Evil Empire” even after it was clear that communism was crumbling away. His “tear down these walls” speech, often lauded by Conservatives, at the time was just pathetic: the walls were already falling and everyone could see the end of communism.

He was there to look charming and make Danny Tannerish speeches about being yourself and not doing drugs, while the administration was being run by people who stayed under the public’s radar and couldn’t win a presidential election if they tried.

    Greatest?

    Perhaps

    Eisenhower is another good choice that no one ever considers. Of course, today he could never be elected, just look at all those poor American boys he murdered on D-day….

    or so the paper would read.

    No, goddammit, NO.

    Two words:

    Grover fucking Cleveland.

    Who can forget “Reagenomics”? Give a pile of tax breaks to the rich, then when they accumulate obscene amounts of wealth, the money would “trickle down” to the poor, making everyone better off in the end.

    What a load of crap.
