Most people might say that President Bush and President Reagan are like comparing vinegar and water they are complete opposite good leaders but yet they were not historical figures. Bush said I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save free market system. Those words would never have been said by Regan, as Bush did a massive spending spree in his last weeks of presidency. Bush claims to be the conservative that Reagan was, early on in his career he challenged the GOP, which Regan won in 1980, Bush and other republican challengers thought his conservatism would be rejected by the voters. It is known that Regan’s record in all aspects is inferior to Bush by advancing conservative principles.

Clinton was raised by his strong-willed grandmother Edith Cassidy and his free spirited mother Virginia Cassidy Blythe two domineering women who often competed for his attention. Clinton spent the early years of his life being taught by his grandmother while his mother way away in New Orleans attending school to become a nurse. (World Biography Encyclopedia) In 1950, Clinton 's mother, Virginia, married a car dealer and abusive alcoholic by the name of Roger Clinton who moved the family to Hot Springs, Arkansas where years later Clinton officially adopted his stepfather 's last name.

In the chapter “Don’t Get Mad; Don’t Get Even; Get Ahead” Matthews discusses ways one cannot waste energy trying to get back at an enemy. It states how one should focus efforts on getting simply ahead of the enemy. The chapter cites the dilemma of former Speaker Newt Gingrich who attempted to shut down various government institutions after Bill Clinton forced him to exit Air Force One from the back. All this did was ruin Gingrich 's political spine. Others like Pat Sullivan, who helped Herbie win but did not receive help in return, tried to get even but fail in an eight year struggle.
However, the Eisenhower administration failed to successfully mollify these fears, apparent in the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy, who pledged not to “dare to tempt [challenging nations] with weakness” (Document I). In the wake of World War II, the American morale was ravaged by fears of communist pervading American values and security. This was deepened by the Eisenhower administration’s inability to address and placate American concerns towards the expansion of communism, the apparently immutable precipice of nuclear war, and the displacement of democracy. The Cold War served as distinguishing feature in the American ethos and served as a defining moment in American
In the years 1953 to 1963 two presidents were in office; Dwight Eisenhower assumed office in 1953 and left in 1961, he was succeed by John F Kennedy in 1961 who was then assassinated in Dallas in 1963. Both Presidents are credited with some major advancements in civil rights. One way the presidents didn’t do much for civil rights was that JFK did not want to interfere in the freedom rides. In 1961 CORE organised the Freedom Rides to challenge two Supreme Court rulings on interstate travel: Morgan Vs Virginia (1946) and Boynton Vs Virginia (1960) however they were met with a lot of white backlash from groups such as the KKK. President Kennedy was reluctant to get involved with the violence happening to the integrated group of Freedom Riders
Carter was elected into office when America was looking for a great change in politics but soon after instances like the hostage crisis, Americans began to realize that Carter was not the type of representative that they wanted. The Carter administration and the State Department officials thought that the problem would be over quickly and the hostages would be returned quickly, giving Carter’s image a boost. Unsurprisingly, Carter’s political needs matched poorly with those of Ayatollah Khomeini, the Shah Muslim religious leader of the time. Americans pressured Carter to handle the issue in an American manner with gusto and military force as a small group of university students managed to humiliate and humble the “American tiger.” Carter’s strategy included sending a letter to Khomeini, calling for the resolvement of issues of Iran-America issues but the Carter administration quickly learned that it would take a great deal to get the Ayatollah’s attention. Overwhelmingly, the world saw Carter as “weak and ineffectual” and this majorly tainted the image of a 1970s-1980s
Soon the United States will have a new president. After two terms of Barack Obama’s presidency, the country expects the new leader to not only bring some fresh air to American domestic and foreign policy, but also to solve a number of problems that have accumulated during the past eight years. Without speculating how efficient Obama was as a president, as well as leaving aside the comparisons between the two major candidates—Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump—it still must be said that the latter is probably the worst choice for president this election season. There is a number of reasons underlying this statement. Donald Trump is, first of all, a businessman, not a politician.
These qualities include tenacity, and a collected demeanour. A good example to draw on to this quality is the 35th president of the united states John F. Kennedy. JFK lead America through the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, where america was on the verge of nuclear warfare with Russia. If it was not for JFK’s tenacity a third world war would have broken out and our world today would not be the same. To put things into context, candidate Donald Trump does not posses these qualities.
In the past we have seen russia as a weaker country and have never given them much respect. Instead of just seeing us as the world 's greatest country and nobody else compares to us we should start seeing Russia as a partner instead of a weaker force. What I mean by these is we stop downgrading them as a lesser country and start working with them. This won’t be easy because the United States and Russia split heads over so many import issues like the war in Syria. Russia is a very big country that sees NATO as a threat to their security.
