    for a President who interned an entire race of people in concentration camps, a President who radically increased the number of nuclear weapons and whose administration was integral in plotting the Vietnam War, a President who trained the Shah's secret police in torture and was the first to arm (one might even say, create) the Taliban, and the President who actually conspired to start US involvement in the Vietnam War.   You describe these as mere mistakes, errors, necessities, and "tragedies," but nowhere is your pompously judgmental tone as in condemning Barack Obama for not reversing 80 years of foreign policy that these other Presidents were responsible for constructing.

      shit between your ears, you self-righteous apologist.

      Roosevelt had to face the depression and WWII, in which the very survival of democracy was quite literally as issue.

      Eisenhower did (permit) the training of SAVAK.  But that was a misadventure of the Dulles boys, and at least he warned us on his way out.

      Carter did create the Taliban - and I noted that.

      Create your own rankings if you wish - suck down a full pitcher of Kool Aid and have a good time.
