Who was the better president, Ronald Reagan or Jimmy Carter? Most people who lived through their presidencies would say Reagan and I tend to agree. Reagan uplifted the country while Carter did not. Reagan concentrated on the big picture and largely ignored the details while Carter immersed himself in minutiae and lost track of the big picture, in the opinion of some. I think that Barack Obama most resembles Reagan in concentrating on the big picture while uplifting the country. Mike Huckabee and others on the Right are criticizing the President on ignoring some details, but they would criticize him no matter what. Just can’t please some folks.
