My response... being president means making tough decisions during tough times. Our understanding of historical events differ drastically. You're telling me Hoover and Buchanan could have done better jobs? Lincoln tried to avoid war and FDR gave our country hope and help in a time of desperate desperate need. Our view points differ in perspective... Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Good book recommendation: A People's History of the United States, by Howard Zinn

Also, Lies My History Teacher Told Me, forget the author...
