I miss George W. Bush. Hell, I miss Bill Clinton,

I don't miss either one. GW spent more on domestic liberal programs than Clinton. They both moved us to the left.

The two Statist Bush's looked at government as an inherent Good (proof is their activist liberal domestic policies).

The only President I miss is Reagan. He was the last Conservative President. Only Reagan tried to follow the Constitution.

Reagan wasn’t nearly as conservative on spending as people give him credit for. Check the graph

I miss Eisenhower. Under his eight years he understood the WW2 debt must be paid down first and the US needed rest to transition from war production to peace production. Under his admin he kept US out of major wars, kept gov spending including defense to a minimum as our WW2 debt was paid down as the US transition to peacetime manufacturing and consumption. The only major fed program was building our interstate highways which kept many Americans vets employed as industry needed time to transition completely from war to peace and create jobs for the last vestige of demoblilized soldiers who came home from war and occupation duties in Europe, and Japan. it was Eisenhower’s boring admin that paid down the WW2 debt that laid the strong financial foundation for JFK and the 1960’s.
