7. He survived all of the above and managed to keep his mythos intact instead of being thrown into a federal prison for his crimes! And don't forget how he gutted the FAA and the Air Controllers union. We're still paying for that one!

Answered By: Sir C - 5/16/2011
as you've pointed out, he's pretty much the root cause for a lot of the problems we face today, and yet he's heralded by the right as one of the greatest presidents ever. I'd say his greatest accomplishment is creating a climate where your "legend" eclipses your actual achievements (or lack thereof).
