He lost a close race to president Gerald Ford for the Republican nomination. He was not ready to give up yet, so in 1980 he ran again with much more success even though many claimed he was to old (Reagan 334). Reagan wanted less government and more defense. He wanted to rescue the country and restore the hope for a better American Dream. Reagan also viewed the Iran Hostage Crisis as a huge embarrassment to the country and promised the people that this would not happen again (Brands 207).
Carter was not reelected after his four years of being president, but he continued to bring peace in foreign nations and help the United States with foreign relationships. Overall most people considered Jimmy Carter to be a president who did not do as much as he should have as president. Carter’s failures are what the people see instead of his improvements he made to foreign policy and the United States economy. Instead of people seeing how Carter ended the war between Israel and Egypt all they saw was how Carter failed to rescue the hostages from Tehran. Two things that people often forget is how Carter deregulated airlines and beer.
The success of a president is reliant on the success of the country. President’s Reagan and Roosevelt had opposite ideas but both did what they could to help better the country. From the first day in office, Roosevelt experimented with new ideas, he was not afraid to make mistakes. Reagan was more
Roland Reagan came into the office during his first term hoping to use his administration to fight communism and end the Cold War. He finds out it was not easy as he thought. So, in his second term he turned to a different strategy getting to know someone like Gorbachev. The conservatives thought he was making a mistake. Roland Reagan’s success finally proved to the conservatives that his friendship with Gorbachev was not a dupe.
Discussion 6: Question 1: Zinn portrays the Nixon presidency in general as a failure all on its own and the Watergate scandal adding to the failure as a dirty play by Nixon. Zinn thinks Nixon was involved in “dirty tricks” because he thinks Nixon knew all about and personally orchestrated the Watergate scandal. He proves this by telling us that top Republican and Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives that they would not support any criminal proceedings against him. Question 2: Schweikart and Allen’s interpretation of this period in American history is different from Zinn’s because he tells more of and focuses on the achievements and victories of this period of time while Zinn tells of the good and bad and focuses mostly on the
Such as the following. After John Fitzgerald Kennedy was out of office in between elections, he was still focused on the economic and political issues and conflicts in the US. While JFK was still alive, he remodeled America’s politics. Albeit his inexperience before entering office is thought process and decision making was reasonable and becoming of a rookie. There was the reasoning behind him wanting to end the war, however is was not the right way to end the war and there were many refutations to the decision.
John Marshall was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who supported loose construction of the Constitution and enforcing economic provisions in the Constitution. The Supreme Court decisions did not extend federal power too much because the states needed to stay the same. Marshall’s leadership skills helped strengthen the federal government and he believed in all things good for the government. It is not appropriate that someone who was not elected should have such tremendous power to shape the government and law because the president and people should have the ability to elect a person to have a government position. John Marshall was a powerful government official who made the government strong, but he should not have had so much power
As a Democratic governor of New Jersey, he ran the president election in 1912 and got elected because of a split in Republican Party. His Clayton Antitrust Act made him a progressive president. When the Sherman Antitrust Act was ratified, there were still many problems yet to be solved due to the insufficiency of the policy. The unfair competitiveness was still ubiquitous in business. However, with the Clayton Act plastered over the crucial cracks of the Sherman Act, serving as a barrier to a broad range of anti-competitiveness issues like price discrimination, price fixing, and exclusive sales contract.
He initiated the Project Independence in reaction to the oil embargo of 1973, which set a timetable to end reliance on foreign oil by 1980. In 1970, Nixon avoided a second Cuban Missile Crisis involving a Soviet submarine base. Supported Israel with massive aid in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, which Prime Minister Golda Meir later said saved her country. By the end of his presidency, Nixon’s approval rating had tumbled to 24 percent.
The two sectional party system helped the country become better in this kind of problems. This new sectional system did not accomplished what some people wanted, it accomplished what was better for humanity, and this system helped in making a good decision when Lincoln became president and abolished slavery. The democrats and Whigs avoided the topic of slavery because they were afraid that they would lose votes from the south, however a new party was brave enough (Republican) and went against the south believes. In the year 1860 was the first time a Republican candidate won the election, the Abraham Lincoln went on to become one of the best president of the United States, and also gave a stop to slavery in the entire country. Since then the Republican Party and Democrats have become the most important parties of the United States and they are part of the two sectional
He believed in the high role of the chief executive, but he was arrogant and lacked a common touch. His idealism made him difficult to compromise and stubborn, and he was convinced in his own right. Wilson Tackles the Tariff

Money cannot always buy votes. Nixon’s sacrifice for his country, incredible work ethic, and the strength he exemplified when he delivered his speech, proved to pull peoples’ attention when he was elected Vice President. He introduced a valid argument about what it takes to be a President, when he stated, “that it’s essential in this country of ours that a man of modest means can also run for President” (Nixon). Wealth does not define a person’s values, beliefs or character. Nixon was able to integrate this into the situation by speaking directly to the common people.
Some may be wondering why that is, but look at our rulers. Looking over the past Presidential reigns, we haven’t had a solid president since Reagan! Watching the recent Presidential debate, I was paying close attention to which president mentioned America’s past problems, where we went wrong, and how to avoid those problems again. Marco Rubio was the only one stood out to me, because he mentioned the Iran-Contra affairs and how our leaders could have took certain actions to prevent the whole scandal. I only mention the
