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!

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).
