A President who negotiated with terrorists, illegally funded, armed and collaborated with the Iraqis in the Iran-Iraq War, funded a Latin American terrorist group then told the American people he did none of these things and when the truth came out he completely got away with all of it.
In return, he is seen as one of the greatest Presidents ever because of the surging economy regardless of the long-term impact to be had with the tripling of the national debt as well as his 'defeating' of the Soviet Union regardless of their financial failings since the 1960s and the social reform of the 1980s.
Bill Clinton was nearly impeached for lying about cheating on his wife. In comparison, Ronald Reagan got a mild slap on the wrist for funding nun-raping and village-destroying genocidal terrorists even after Congress passed legislation forbidding it and after telling the American people he did not do these things.
