During Obama's recent visit to Japan for the G-7 summit, for example, he became the first sitting U.S. president to visit Hiroshima, devastated in 1945 by the nuclear attack ordered by President Harry S. Truman to avoid a ground invasion and hasten the end of World War II.Obama has also been touting his economic accomplishments, claiming he prevented another Great Depression. Obama's own advisers have estimated that his stimulus package prevented a rise in unemployment of one percentage point at peak unemployment, not the 20-percentage-point increase the president seems to be claiming.It is interesting that Obama feels the need, as his days count down, to glorify his actions.I consider FDR the greatest president of the 20th century because of his leadership during WWII.Truman almost lost the 1948 election to the Republican Thomas Dewey. In 1953, when he was succeeded by Dwight Eisenhower, few would have predicted that he would later be included among the ranks of the near-great presidents.
Will the civil majority please stand up?
