Nice guy. Lousy president. Needs to stay home instead of presenting himself as an expert on foreign affairs (remember that little hostage situation?)

Sorry to those I've offended, but he asked.... :-?

But, he was involved with the Israel-Egypt peace agreement in 1979. So, he did get something right in foreign affairs department. But yeah, he had some misteps with the hostage crisis.

No offense taken.

Nice guy, but I'm still unsure how he let inflation run up around 11%

The hostages were released the day Reagan was inaugurated. Care to explain how anything about the situation was his fault?

I was too young to care what he did politically at the time, but he does appear on many of the "worst presidents" lists. I do respect his work with Habitat for Humanity. Unlike celebs that volunteer for a 30-minute photo op, I'll bet he's hammered his thumb a few times.

A prolific writer too. I recommend Turning Point: A Candidate, a State, and a Nation Come of Age, about his first campaign for public office and the crooked politics of the south at the time.

a Nice man. Nice wife. Their work with Habitat for Humanity is to be admired. They're still at it at an age when most are sitting at home having others do for them.

Yes i agree Nancy. He has also done tremendous work for human rights and helps promote the Lustgarten Foundation for pancreatic cancer!

A jerk. He gave away the Panama Canal and kept the USA out of the
Moscow Olympics (crushing the dreams of hundreds of American
athletes who had worked for years for that one moment to come along,
just to make a political statement). I don't give a crap if he builds a
hundred houses. :pirate:
