 Paul Cook- historian and author of Siege at the White House has once again covered literary ground where few writers dare to tip toe, much less tread.  In this revealing irreverent accomplishment, he has established a report card by which all of the Presidents have been graded.  What makes Presidential Leadership by Example so unique is that each Chief Executive is not so much graded according to their political achievements or failures in the White House, but according to their personal values and perception by others as a proper role model.  

   The following questions are now answered with historical honesty regardless of how popular the President may have been with society.

Did they lead by example?

Did they practice in their personal lives what they preached in their political life?

Who was a real hypocrite?

Was their political ambition dangerous not only to themselves, but to their families and nation as well?

   So, sit back, relax and get ready to meet the Presidents and many First Ladies, as you have never seen them before and held accountable for their personal actions in their first presidential report card on ethics.

DIV What were they thinking? • In an effort to put an end to Britain and France’s policy of seizing American ships and sailors, Thomas Jefferson calls for an embargo. The Result: 30,000 sailors put out of work; mercantile families bankrupted overnight; a nationwide economic depression; and the New England states, which depended heavily on international commerce, threaten to secede from the Union. • To promote the doctrine of popular sovereignty, Franklin Pierce approves the repeal of the Missouri Compromise and permits residents of Kansas and Nebraska to decide whether their territories will admit slavery. The Result: Dozens of settlers murdered; Lawrence, Kansas, burned and looted; John Brown elevated to the status of national hero among abolitionists; the country moves closer to civil war. • Convinced the 20,000 men, women, and children of the Bonus Army were Communists and criminals, Herbert Hoover sends 600 crack troops, a detachment of cavalry, and five tanks to drive the protesters out of Washington. The Result: 4 dead, including two infants; more than 1,000 injured; the Communist Party in America enjoys a public relations field day; Hoover is driven into political exile. • In an effort to install a capitalist government in the Middle East, stabilize the region, and protect America from a possible Iraqi terrorist assault using weapons of mass destruction, George W. Bush orders the invasion of Iraq. The Result: More than 4,000 American soldiers and personnel dead; estimated hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians dead; hundreds of billions of dollars spent; the torture of prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison and the failure to find weapons of mass destruction leave American global credibility in tatters. /div
