Gave away the Panama Canal.
Allowed the mullahs to take over Iran. Now it looks like thanks to
Jimmy that we'll soon have jihadis with nukes.
Helped generate the opinion in the middle east that America is a paper
tiger through his inaction during the hostage crisis at the US embassy

Responsible for the so called war on poverty that resulted in $6
trillion wasted and several generations of people who think the
government is supposed to provide for their every desire. This "war on
poverty" also resulted in U.S. cities becoming the hellholes they are today.
His mishandling of the war in Vietnam turned what should have been a
victory into a humiliating defeat. With a stroke of the pen he could
have kept Dan Rather and his camera crew out of Vietnam.

Gave up U.S. military secrets relating to nuclear weapons and rockets to
the Chinese. Thanks to Bill, the Chinese can now put a man in orbit and
bring him home safely. If someone can do that, they can put a nuke in
orbit and bring it down anywhere they want to.
Together with Jimmy Carter set this "agreed framework" in motion which
resulted in a North Korea that may soon have nukes if they don't
already. Also thanks to the Chinese who gave the North Korean
government the rocket technology it bought from Clinton, the North
Koreans have the means to deliver to the U.S. any nukes they come up with.
Started the precedent with Ruby Ridge and Waco that it's ok for the
government to murder innocent civilians. Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge
might have been some sort of criminal, but that doesn't give the
Federales the right to shoot his unarmed son and his wife while she's
holding the baby. Every morning that preacher in Waco left his compound
to go jogging along the county roads in the area. The Federales could
have nabbed him while he was out jogging alone, and nobody would have
Contributed to America's paper tiger image by doing nothing about the
1993 terrorist attack against the WTC.
Did nothing about the other terrorist attacks against the U.S. that
happened while he was in the White House.
Did not accept Sudan's offer to hand over Osama to the U.S.
Blew up an aspirin factory in Sudan to distract the media from his
affair with Monica.
Allowed his cronies to do thousands of dollars to the White House in the
days before he left office.
I could go on, but most email systems have a limit on the size of posts.
> _WORST_: Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Took the U.S. off the gold standard.
Set up the welfare system that Johnson later exploited during his "war
on poverty". The problems with the welfare state are legion and don't
need to be repeated here.
Started the "government can take care of your every need and desire"
mentality that plagues America to this day.
Put thousands of American citizens in prison camps in Arizona,
confiscated most of their property. By the time the Federales finally
decided to compensate them, most were dead.
Gave away Eastern Europe to the Russians.
Didn't allow Patton to go to Berlin.
I could go on, but as I said earlier, your email systems have a limit on
the size of messages.

John, you've earned a cigar with this post. I'll get one for you just
as soon as I'm able to drive to Mexico to buy one.
