36. Let me add to this:
I see two possibilities.

Case 1: you are using the term "weak" to mean "ineffectual" or implying that said president couldn't get his legislation passed. In this case you are incorrect because that wasn't Hoover's problem.

Case 2: you are using the term "weak" to mean "bad". If that is the case, you REALLY think Obama is worse than Reagan and the Bush boys?
