Even Krauthammer Nods
By Mike Rappaport

My favorite columnist, Charles Krauthammer, starts his most recent column on Ronald Reagan, "The second-greatest president of the 20th century dies . . . " I guess Charles did not read my post on The Greatest President of the Twentieth Century, or even worse, did not agree with it. I am sure that Krauthammer's is the consensus view, but I expect more from him. I genuinely cannot understand how he can hold this view. While Roosevelt won World War II, the failures of his presidency were tremendous.
