34. I found Reagan to be personally likeable, unlike Bush who is a horrible person...
Although I thought he was basically a decent guy who had bought into a whole ideological bill of goods that he didn't really understand.

He produced two good liberal kids (and one bitter little repuke who never got enough of Daddy's love) who would tell you the exact same thing. He was very generous in his personal life, to the point of sending a $1000 check to a poor pensioner who had sent him a letter.

That being said, he was one of the worst presidents we have ever had, with one of the most corrupt White House staffs ever - until Bush, and Bush Jr.

I'm in the camp that believes that he was largely a figurehead after the 1980 assassination attempt, and that Bush Sr. was a lot more in charge than people realize.


But just finding someone personally likeable doesn't mean you detest their policies any less.

Bush is a destestable person with detestable policies - the whole package.
