12. JFK as over-rated
Since he represented the last time I felt as much enthusiasm about my country and its
future I have to give his ability to inspire a nation greater credit than most.
Is Bush the most reviled? If so it is because just like St. Ronnie he lead a nation
with fear and hatred and look what he has accomplished to our horror.
