I refuse to get all phist & stuff, even as I'm annying the shit out yah. But while this has a few years on it, AFAIC AJS Jr remans the definitive expert on the US presidency. I know, I'm Freddie Engels for citing AJS via a neutral PBS link. Whatever. Just shows Ronnie was hardly this alleged demi-god as potus.http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/choice2004/leadership/schlesinger.html#chartEdit:And another respected survey that is done more frequently/recently that benchmarks, surveying actual expert historians (not biased institute whack jobs).https://www.siena.edu/pages/179.asp?item=2566Sorry wingies, Ronnie just isn't the 5th Beatle on Mt Rushmore. A note on the cold war... The fall was the result of a coherent and ocnsistent 40 year bi-partisan strategy of containment, not a final 6 year drunk spending push or SDI fantasy. If you are a conservative, you give credence to Rand, and if you give credence to rand, you have to see the fall as inevitable due to a flawed political philosophy. In that sense, Reagan is no more to be credited for '88 than Johnson, JFK, Ford, Carter, Nixon, Ike or Turman.
