He was the last Republican Presidet to stand up to Israel. That counts for something. Yet he is also the guy that really pushed a new war program with the Middle East that essentially has been given more funding to the military industrial complex than they did in the cold war.
He also initiated the war with Iraq through lies and trickery, giving him the go-ahead to invade Kuwait, then lying about Iraqi atrocities in Kuwait, and invading. So there are good and bad bits about the guy.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
