Letter of the Day: Best, worst presidents

  • (MICHAEL RAMIREZ / Investors Business Daily)

Best, worst presidents

EDITOR: During my time on this planet, I have lived through the presidencies from Herbert Hoover until now. What I am about to say is my opinion. My favorite presidents are Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan.

Did I agree with them on every issue? Of course not. However, I believe they were concerned about this country and its citizens. Remember Truman sitting at his desk with a sign reading, “The buck stops here”? Remember Reagan standing in Berlin saying to the Russian premier, “Tear down this wall”?

Again in my opinion, at the bottom of the list have been Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter. Now I must remove Carter and insert the name of the current resident of the White House.
