    Cool Something You Love, Something You Hate

    I wanna take a different approach to a topic here, as this is something I'd be interested in reading. It's pretty self-explanatory:

    Something I love that a conservative president did:
    Something I hate that a conservative president did:
    Something I love that a liberal president did:
    Something I hate that a liberal president did:
    It's an all-or-nothing exercise. Answer all four or don't bother participating. I think there are a lot of liberal things done by conservatives that get looked over, and vice versa; and the whole "the party I'm not a part of does nothing but bad" is rather far-fetched.


    Something I love that a conservative president did:
    the Environmental Decade (Nixon)

    Something I hate that a conservative president did:
    the wars in the Middle East (Bush)

    Something I love that a liberal president did:
    health care reform (Obama)
    Although it could have been much better, it's still a step in the right direction; it can be amended later.

    Something I hate that a liberal president did:
    Federal Reserve Act (Wilson)
    Wilson didn't pass the bill (Congress did), so he's not entirely to blame, he didn't veto or speak out against it.

    Conservative.
    Loved Peace through Strength. Reagan wins the Cold War and bankrupts the Soviet Union.
    Hated the Iraq war Bush started. It was wrong from the get go. He should have waited until the UN forced a confrontation

    Liberal
    Loved when Clinton signed the largest deficit reduction plan in history, resulting in over $600 billion in deficit reduction.
    Hated LBJ's Welfare programs. Entitlements are not teaching a man to fish, they are giving men my fish. Same goes for Health care, but the 1960's welfare programs started it all.

    What was Reagan's strong response to the 1983 Beirut bombing? Cut & Run!

    He must have thought dying for the Lebonese wasn't worth American blood just like Clinton did with the Somalians.

    During the Blackhawk Down incident, 18 Americans died, but some say over 2000 Somalians died.
