Obama wants to be like FDR, Truman and Kennedy and shows his ignorance of history

Obama should return to school and study history before stating that he wished to be like FDR and Truman. FDR did not meet with Hitler and Hideki Tojo Prime Minister of Japan. Both men ended up having to conduct massive wars that outlasted their Presidencies. In the case of FDR it was World War Two. Truman pursued World War Two with vigour. He authorized the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki . The Korean War was Truman's War . It outlasted his Presidency. He failed to seek Congressional approval for the War. JFK escalated US involvement in Vietnam. And had Kennedy lived he would have had the Iron Curtain to contend with.
