Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua 2 betting preview: What’s at stake in heavyweight rematch?

first_imgAndy Ruiz Jr. shocked the boxing world on June 1. He was a massive 11-1 underdog coming into his fight with British superstar Anthony Joshua, and most analysts believed that Joshua would make short work of the challenger. Ruiz proved to be more than anyone expected, though, rebounding from being knocked down in the third round to knock down Joshua four times on his way to winning the unified heavyweight title. MORE: Follow the latest odds and betting trends with Sports Insider His most impressive victory to date came the following year when he dropped Wladimir Klitschko to unify the heavyweight division. Joshua added the WBA and IBO heavyweight belts to his waist by beating Klitschko in a thriller at Wembley Stadium, and he acquired the WBO title in 2018 when he beat Parker by unanimous decision. He went on to defend his four titles successfully only once before his loss to Ruiz.What’s next?This is the deepest we have seen the heavyweight division in years, and the winner of this bout will likely be involved in the class’ biggest fight in 2020. If Ruiz can beat Joshua again, he will likely face the winner of the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury rematch in February, in what could be a full unification title fight. A Joshua victory could lead to a long-awaited bout with either Wilder or Fury, or he could decide to make it a trilogy and take on Ruiz for a third and final time next year. A win would make him the most marketable boxer in the division, giving him the opportunity to make any fight he wanted. It was the best fight of 2019 so far, and a rematch was essentially guaranteed. The two heavyweights will meet in what is being labeled as the “Clash On The Dunes” Saturday afternoon in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. The action will start with the undercard fights getting underway at noon ET, while the main event is slated to begin at 3:45 p.m. ET.The WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles will be on the line, and the bout will be exclusively shown on DAZN in the United States and Canada. Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua 2 oddsAlthough Ruiz won the first fight, he is still an underdog on Saturday afternoon, according to the latest boxing betting odds. Joshua is a -205 favorite in a bout that is not expected to go the distance. The odds on the fight lasting all 12 rounds are +250, and the over/under for the number of rounds we will see has been set at 7.5.Join DAZN to watch Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 & 100+ fight nights a yearCan Andy Ruiz Jr. pull off the upset again?Ruiz has been overlooked throughout his professional career. Even with a record of 28-0, he was unable to get marquee prize fights, and it appeared that he would never get his moment in the sun after a loss by majority decision to Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight title in December 2016. He took over a year off before entering the ring again, but he came back with a fury. Ruiz knocked out Devin Vargas in the first round in March 2018, and he proved he had the stamina to go the distance in a win by unanimous decision over Kevin Johnson four months later. An impressive win over Alexander Dimitrenko set up the first fight between Ruiz and Joshua, and Ruiz took full advantage of the opportunity.Ruiz comes into the rematch with a record of 33-1. He has knocked out his opponent in 22 of those fights, showcasing his raw power, but his quickness is his real calling card. Ruiz catches opponents off guard with how fast his hands and feet move, leading to some improbable knockouts.MORE: Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 odds, pick, prediction, betting trends & prop betsAnthony Joshua is out to reclaim his beltsJoshua was heralded as the best heavyweight fighter in the world prior to his loss to Ruiz. The 6-6 boxer is the prototype of a heavyweight champion, and he seemed set to rule the division for a decade prior to his stunning defeat.The former gold medalist is 22-1 in his professional career, and 21 of his victories have come by knockout. Joshua’s dominance as an amateur led to him being placed on the fast track to greatness, and he won his first major belt back in April 2016 when he defeated Charles Martin by knockout in the second round to claim the IBF strap.last_img read more

Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua 2 start time, price, boxing odds, undercard & how to watch the fight

first_imgRuiz (33-1, 22 KOs) gets the chance to show the boxing world his monumental upset wasn’t a fluke in a rematch against Anthony Joshua for the IBF, WBA (super) and WBO heavyweight belts Ruiz claimed in their first fight. The sequel is set for Saturday, Dec. 7 from the Diriyah Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, live and exclusively on DAZN. Ruiz entered their first fight June 1 as a 9-1 underdog. Except for those closest to him, no one gave Ruiz a prayer against Joshua, who had been regarded as the best heavyweight in the world. Then everything changed for the 30-year-old career challenger.Joshua (22-1, 21 KOs) appeared to have things well in control in the third round when he sent Ruiz to the canvas with a thudding left hook. Instead of wilting like those before him, Ruiz smiled, dusted himself off, and dropped Joshua with a left hand of his own. Near the end of the round, Ruiz sent Joshua to mat one time with a straight right hand.Join DAZN to watch Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 & 100+ fight nights a yearThen in the fateful seventh round, Ruiz delivered the final blows and made history, knocking Joshua down two more times. After the final knockdown, referee Michael Griffin asked Joshua if he could continue. Joshua said he could but couldn’t convince Griffin that he was serious and waved the bout off, and Ruiz became the first heavyweight champion of Mexican descent. When the dust settled, Joshua didn’t waste much time to invoke the rematch clause in the contract. It was just a matter of securing a location for the biggest fight of 2019. Suitors from all over the world looked to host with Cardiff, Wales in Joshua’s native England being the front runner. But at the last second, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia swooped in and secured the bout. Here’s a complete guide to Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua 2, which is again available exclusively for streaming on DAZN rather than traditional pay-per-view, along with updated betting odds, PPV price, who’s on the undercard and more.MORE: Read the latest Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 news at SN’s fight HQWhat time is Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua 2?Date: Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019Start time: Noon ETMain event: 4 p.m. ET (approximate)Live stream: Only on DAZNThe rematch between Andy Ruiz Jr. and Anthony Joshua will take place in the afternoon on Dec. 7 from Diriyah Arena in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

Troy Aikman rips Jerry Jones’ management of Cowboys: ‘It’s been going on for 20 years’

first_img“We’ve got a head coach who we know for 10 years has been saying, ‘We’re focused on Tuesday. Today. That’s all we’re worried about is having the best practice today that we can possibly have,’” Aikman said. “And that’s been his messaging throughout, and the owner’s talking about getting on a run and winning the Super Bowl.”Added Aikman on that subject: “You’ve got a head coach who comes down and says we’re going to evaluate the kicker, and then the front office says right after that — probably in a press conference right outside the locker room — that they weren’t evaluating the kicker. All those things have an impact, and it slowly trickles down.”MORE: Mapping out Garrett’s future in DallasGarrett, 53, has taken the majority of the heat as Dallas has limped to a 6-6 record heading into its Week 14 “Thursday Night Football’ game in Chicago; enough that Sporting News is already wondering who might replace him should Jones decide not to extend the coach’s expiring contract after the season.Though Jones has said he does not plan to fire Garrett before the end of the year, the 77-year-old team owner hasn’t exactly been gushing in his support of the coach. Aikman on Wednesday allowed that “coaching hasn’t been great at times in certain situations” for the Cowboys in 2019, but he added, “the front office hasn’t been great in allowing the head coach to do his job, either.”Aikman has a unique perspective of Cowboys operations considering he was drafted by Dallas a few months after Jones purchased the team in 1989. He quarterbacked the Cowboys to consecutive Super Bowl titles in 1992 and ’93 under coach Jimmie Johnson and again in 1995 under Barry Switzer.It was clear, Aikman said Wednesday, that those coaches were the bosses in a way Garrett evidently is not.”It starts to take away some of the authority of the head coach,” Aikman said. “And it’s been going on for 20 years, and at some level there’s players that start feeling that, ‘Oh, okay. (Jones) is the guy who’s really calling all the shots.’”I think there’s some organizations that truly would do everything possible to win, they just don’t really know where to begin. And there’s different ways to do it. And I certainly understand that. But in Dallas, Dallas knows how it was done. I know how it was done. It was done with a really strong head coach who the players knew that that’s who they had to answer to.”And for some reason that model changed, and it hasn’t been very effective for a while.”MORE: Garrett’s seat among hottest in NFL One of the human beings most qualified to criticize Jerry Jones’ management of the Cowboys is doing just that.Fox NFL analyst Troy Aikman, who in 2006 was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a result of his 12-year career as Dallas’ quarterback, naturally was asked Wednesday about the struggling Cowboys during his weekly radio spot on KTCK The Ticket in Dallas. When speaking his way through the myriad of issues plaguing the team that has lost three of its last for games, Aikman, 53, brought up the disconnect in Jones’ messaging at it relates to that of coach Jason Garrett. Aikman also mentioned Dallas’ playing talent is not the problem — an assertion with which Sporting News certainly agrees considering what we thought of the Cowboys entering the 2019 season. Jones, though, can no longer take the credit for the team’s astute roster-building. In Aikman’s estimation, vice president of player personnel Will McClay “is the one doing the general manager work” for the Cowboys.Dallas, 6-6, amazingly still leads the NFC East over 5-7 Philadelphia. If it wins the division, it will host a wild-card playoff game, likely against Seattle or San Francisco. Given that nonsensical seeding and the way the Cowboys have played of late, a deep playoff run is unlikely.Many believe the absence of such success will lead Jones to part ways with Garrett. Yet based on Aikman’s criticism, the franchise’s issues are unlikely to be fixed with a coaching change.last_img read more

Which players are sitting out Week 17? Finding fantasy sleepers, busts based on NFL playoff picture

first_imgD.J. Moore. Moore (concussion) is out. Expect more targets for Curtis Samuel against the Saints. Chris Godwin. Godwin (hamstring) will miss another game, meaning Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson will get more chances to shine. Terry McLaurin. McLaurin (concussion) is out, allowing Steven Sims Jr. to get more targets. Players sitting out in Week 17 is the downside of fantasy football leagues that hold their championship week in the NFL’s final regular season week. Any team that’s already locked up playoff positioning has more incentive to hold its players out to avoid injury heading into the postseason. The NFL playoff picture still has a lot of moving parts, but fantasy owners can find some sleepers and busts to help with difficult start ’em, sit ’em decisions by looking at what we already know about the AFC and NFC postseason seeding.WEEK 17 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker 2019 NFL playoff picture, how it affects fantasy footballThe following is a team-by-team breakdown of what teams have to play for in Week 17. Below each team is a look at how various fantasy values are affected by the potential of teams resting players. As news comes out throughout the week about players sitting out, the analysis will be updated to reflect that.AFC Playoff PictureBaltimore Ravens: Lamar Jackson sitting out, Robert Griffin III fantasy projectionWith their Week 16 win over the Browns, the Ravens locked up the AFC’s No. 1 seed. That means that no matter what happens in Week 17, Baltimore will have home-field advantage throughout the AFC postseason to go along with its first-round bye.Lamar Jackson is the biggest fantasy name to be affected by this development. The Ravens have announced Jackson will sit out Week 17. Robert Griffin III will start at quarterback for Baltimore. Against a strong Steelers defense playing for a playoff berth, RG3 is no better than a second quarterback in two-QB leagues in Week 17. Give a boost to Pittsburgh’s D/ST, too, with Jackson out.The Ravens could also choose to sit their top options at other positions. Mark Ingram (calf) is already hurting, so Baltimore announced that he’ll miss out, too, leaving Gus Edwards and Justice Hill to get backfield work. Hill is the more intriguing PPR option, while Edwards is more interesting in standard leagues. At WR, Marquise Brown could sit out, but that wouldn’t elevate any other receivers into playable fantasy territory. And at TE, Mark Andrews would be the most likely sit-out candidate. If Andrews sits, elevate Hayden Hurst into back-end TE1 range thanks to his big-play upside.WEEK 17 DFS:DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! GPP | FD Cash | ValuesNew England Patriots: Week 17 fantasy outlook for Tom Brady, Julian EdelmanThe Patriots still need to win to secure a first-round bye. That means you should expect Brady and co. to be on the field. Edelman is battling a knee injury, so he could be held out of action as soon as the Pats feel secure against the Dolphins. If Edelman is active, he’s still a good fantasy play against Miami, but beware of a possibly low snap count. He’ll need to produce early if the Patriots blow out the Dolphins.Update: Sony Michell (illness) was a late add to the injury report and will be a game-time decision. WEEK 17 PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endKansas City Chiefs: Week 17 fantasy outlook for Patrick MahomesThe Chiefs can secure a first-round bye with a win and a New England loss. That means that the Chiefs will roll out Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce as usual in hopes of taking the first round of the playoffs off. The KC backfield might be one to avoid, though, especially if LeSean McCoy is back active in Week 17.Houston Texans: Week 17 only small difference in seedingThe Texans can move up to the three seed with a win and a Kansas City loss. Moving up to three would guarantee a first-round matchup against the non-Bills wild card team. The Texans could choose to play it safe with any dinged-up players heading into the week, but unless there’s news about a particular guy, expect Houston to approach Week 17 as usual.Bill O’Brien has said that the Texans are “playing to win” in Week 17 and not planning on resting anyone, although keep an extra eye on Will Fuller V (groin) and Kenny Stills, who were both injured in Week 16. Ian Rapoport has already reported that Fuller will miss Week 17.UPDATE: Deshaun Watson, Kenny Stills, and DeAndre Hopkins are all “questionable” and Will Fuller has been declared out. It’s unclear if Houston will be playing its starters all game. Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen, John Brown could sit out Week 17The Bills are locked in as the AFC’s No. 5 seed no matter what happens in Week 17. That means that Buffalo could choose to fully rest players like Allen, Brown and Devin Singletary. They could also play them for a half, or a quarter, before pulling them. If you’re relying on them, that’s the nightmare scenario if you don’t know it’s happening and start one only to get a half of action.If Buffalo were to sit Allen, Matt Barkley would start at QB. Frank Gore would soak up plenty of carries if Singletary sat out, making Gore a possible volume FLEX play if that ended up being the case. And if the Bills sit Brown, deep-threat Robert Foster would likely start on the outside and be an interesting DFS stab.Update: Sean McDermott told reporters of resting starters this weekend: “I wish I could take them all out,” and added about Barkley possibly seeing time, “Yeah, he could.”Playoff picture for Titans, Steelers, Raiders impacts fantasy start/sitAll these teams have everything to play for. Tennessee is in the driver’s seat and is in the playoffs with a win, while the Steelers and Raiders need help. Expect any players on the edge of playing to try and take the field in Week 17. That means Derrick Henry (hamstring), James Conner (thigh), and Josh Jacobs (shoulder) could all push through injury. If that trio is active, it’s hard to sit them in fantasy lineups despite the dings. Update: Pittsburgh has announced it’s placing Mason Rudolph (shoulder) on Injured Reserve, so Devlin Hodges will start Week 17. In addition, James Conner (thigh) has been declared out, so expect to see Benny Snell Jr. handle the bulk of the carries. Update: Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has been declared out, making DeAndre Washington the starter once again.NFC Playoff PictureSan Francisco 49ers: Week 17 determines first-round bye or wild cardBecause of a final-week matchup with the Seahawks, the 49ers could either lock up the top seed in the NFC with a win or move to a wild card spot with a loss. That’s as big a swing as you can get in the final week of the season. Expect the 49ers to roll with all their studs, and no one is battling injury to worry about anyway.New Orleans Saints: Michael Thomas, Drew Brees push in Week 17 for first-round byeThe Saints still have a chance to finish with a first-round bye. That means that they will use all their usual players for their usual allotments. If anything, Michael Thomas should get a little bonus as New Orleans looks to expand his single-season reception record. Fantasy owners can also finally feel better about Alvin Kamara after he scored twice in Week 16.Green Bay Packers: No concerns about players sitting outThe Packers will still have a shot at a first-round bye in Week 17 if they win on Monday Night Football in Week 16. If they lose, there will still be a division title to play for to get at least one home game. Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams will be prime fantasy plays in Week 17, especially when you consider the favorable matchup with the Lions.Philadelphia Eagles: A win claims the NFC East for Carson WentzThe Eagles are beat up as it is, but expect all the studs to be out on the field in Week 17 after a massive Week 16 win over Dallas. Philadelphia secures the division title with a win in New York against the Giants. Carson Wentz, Miles Sanders, Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert, and Greg Ward Jr. should all play their usual roles in the final week of the regular season.UPDATE: Zach Ertz (ribs, back) has been ruled out. Seattle Seahawks: Could Marshawn Lynch help Seattle’s playoff chances?The Seahawks still have a division title to play for in Week 17 after a bad loss to the Cardinals in Week 16. A win gives Seattle the top spot in the NFC West and knocks San Francisco off its pedestal.The biggest storyline out of Seattle is in the backfield, where Chris Carson (hip) and C.J. Prosise (arm) are done for the season. Lynch has signed with the Seahawks and is likely an RB upgrade over Travis Homer. Lynch is a speculative FLEX play, while Homer has FLEX value in PPR formats as things stand. UPDATE: The Seahawks did sign Lynch, but Pete Carroll told reporters Seattle will “lean on” Homer in Week 17.Minnesota Vikings: Expect Dalvin Cook to sit out Week 17 without much on lineThe Vikings are in the playoffs regardless of what happens in Week 17. After their Monday night loss, Minnesota is locked into the NFC’s No. 6 seed.Because there won’t be much for the Vikings to play for, expect Dalvin Cook (shoulder) to sit out Week 17 and potentially be joined on the bench by Alexander Mattison (ankle). That would mean another start for Mike Boone and passing-down work for Ameer Abdullah, this time against the Bears. Minnesota could also sit veterans Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs or Kyle Rudolph if Mike Zimmer wanted to. If that happened, there could be heavy Irv Smith Jr. work at TE.UPDATE: Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook have have been ruled out. Alexander Mattison is “questionable”. Dallas Cowboys: Need help to make playoffs, Dak Prescott should playThe Cowboys still could get into the playoffs with some help, so they won’t give up on the season just yet. That means the AC joint injury that Prescott is dealing with will be played through for another week. Prescott struggled in Week 16 against the Eagles, although it’s hard to say whether that was the injury’s doing. At the very least, downgrade Dak slightly, but he’s still a QB1 for a great matchup with the Redskins.UPDATE: Jason Garrett has said Dak will be “limited at best” this week in practice but should expect to play.Non-playoff teams shutting players downThe Bengals finally placed A.J. Green on Injured Reserve heading into Week 17, something that basically everyone saw coming. Expect other teams not listed above to be cautious with players battling injury and potentially shut them down for the remainder of the season. Below, we’ll track the players who have been ruled out of Week 17 by non-playoff teams.A.J. Green. Green ends up missing the whole season thanks to an ankle injury sustained on a poor field in Dayton in the preseason. Yuck.Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey’s Week 17 absence due to a knee injury helps Christian Kirk for the Cardinals, since he won’t be shadowed by a stud.Rams offense. Sounds like Sean McVay is seriously considering resting some players based on this report. That could especially affect Jared Goff and Todd Gurley.Leonard Fournette. Fournette (illness, neck) is “doubtful” for Sunday’s game against Indianapolis, paving the way for Ryquell Armstead to get a start. last_img read more

Independence Day blog: Our 10 greatest Presidents according to Cueball

first_imgCommentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Happy Independence Day weekend everyone. Since I’m in a Patriotic mood and we are about to choose between Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dumb for President in six months, I thought I would take a look back at Presidents of years past.So I’ve decided to release the official, “Cueball’s top 10 U.S. Presidents of All Time.I’ll count it down Casey Kasem style from 10 to No. 1. This is so exciting – kind of like shooting off fireworks.10. Andrew Jackson.Andrew JacksonI would have loved to have knocked Mr. Jackson off this list because he was a racist and a jerk. He removed the Indians from the south and put them in Oklahoma (should anyone have to live in Oklahoma?). He also kept the slave trade prospering.But he dismantled the Bank of the United States that was riddled with corrupt rich fat cat bankers. He also held off South Carolina from seceding from the Union after the state was establishing higher tariffs than the U.S. on imported goods. South Carolina would eventually secede 25 years later, but not because of Jackson.Jackson could be defined as the Rambo amongst Presidents. He didn’t take much guff from anyone.9. Lyndon Johnson.Lyndon JohnsonI had a epiphany in just the last year or so. I have always thought of Johnson as a buffoon. After all, he would go on the toilet while talking to reporters during interviews. The Vietnam War was a total disaster.But he signed the Civil Rights Act, and you can’t deny that was a defining moment in U.S. history. It brought the state closer to our ultimate promise – equal rights for everyone. That may never be accomplished, but at least, America wasn’t looking the other way on blatant racism.Johnson is a bit too liberal for my taste. His war on poverty became a bureaucratic mess. But he institutionalized some of the U.S. Government’s greatest legislation: from voting rights, animal welfare, freedom of information, expanded social security, conservation and others.I feel his fight for the poor was genuine, and people who fight for the unfortunate – can’t be bad people.8. Dwight Eisenhower. Dwight EisenhowerAnd yes, I was pleased that the new airport in Wichita is called the Eisenhower National Airport instead of that boring Mid-Continent Airport name.What I loved about Eisenhower is his middle of the road approach to things. He governed by doing what he thought was right not by the partisan politics that is so prevalent today.He ended the Korean War. He kept the Soviets at bay but didn’t tick them off. He gave us the Interstate highway system and promoted technology. And despite being a General who helped us win World War II, he wasn’t a war-monger. When he was leaving office he basically blasted the military industry and warned us about a future in which our economy will depend on making bombs and other weapons. He proved to be right.7. Thomas Jefferson. Thomas JeffersonI probably should put Jefferson in my top five, but I knocked him down because he was a plantation slave owner and had a slave child – not to mention he didn’t do the Indians any favors.But as far as accomplishments go, he was one of the best. He authored the Declaration of Independence for goodness sake. When he became President he initiated the Louisiana Purchase that nearly doubled the size of the U.S. from the French for a dirt cheap price. France was broke at the time from fighting too many wars.He established the university system that we know today, and he sent Lewis and Clark on an expedition to the Pacific Ocean.6. Harry Truman. Harry S. TrumanIf I had to hang out with any President, it would have been Truman. He was a good guy and hard worker. I loved, loved, loved how he took the election away from Thomas Dewey, who everyone thought was going to win in 1948.Truman was the guy who authorized the dropping of the atomic bomb twice on Japan and ending World War II. He founded the Truman Doctrine to contain communism worldwide, he established the United Nations, and he denounced isolationism – giving the U.S. an aggressive worldwide presence and dominating foreign policy.Plus, he started the process of racial integration by desegregating the U.S. Armed Forces.5. Teddy Roosevelt. Theodore RooseveltT. Roosevelt was a stud. He had boxing matches in the White House, hunted bears, went on an African safari that nearly killed him, and he made a campaign speech right after getting shot.But his legacy was breaking up monopolies and fighting for the average citizen.When he took office, tycoons were ruling the empire and were setting their own rules causing rampant unemployment and inflation. Roosevelt would break them with various trust-breaking regulations. He established regulations on food and drugs and he constructed the Panama Canal.And the next time you are on vacation and visiting a national park. Thank Roosevelt.4. George Washington. George WashingtonWell, yes. He was our first. He was overwhelmingly elected to be President by the Electoral College after refusing to be king.He was a unifier. People of all ilk loved him. I always wondered if it was because he was such a great leader and nice guy or because Americans were just enamored by the fact that they had their own country and someone leading it.Washington established the cabinet. He started the inaugural address and was called “Mr. President” a term we use today. He established a taxing system and created a national bank. He hated political parties, and really never wanted to engage the U.S. in wars on foreign soil.I imagine what it would have been liked had the U.S. put someone else in power – someone much more unlikable like Alexander Hamilton. I’m not sure the U.S. would have so firmly established itself as a nation so quickly. Washington was indeed the right man at the right time.3. Franklin Roosevelt.Franklin RooseveltOk, Ok, Ok. He was the closest thing to a socialist as we ever had in the White House. But let’s remember what a screwed up nation he inherited. Everyone was broke, and we were on the verge of collapsing as a nation.He started the “New Deal” in which he implemented new government projects for the unemployed. He implemented bank regulations, he started unemployment compensation, repealed prohibition and established such programs as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and Social Security.And by the end of his Presidency he was guiding the U.S. through World War II.The key to Roosevelt’s leadership was his unwavering optimism. People felt like he was on their side.2. Ronald Reagan. Ronald ReaganYou know why we are arguing about immigration and gun control? Because we are not fighting about nuclear holocaust.Reagan is the only President during my adult lifetime to make this list. Why? It wasn’t just because he was a dynamic leader and changed the complexion of our nation. It wasn’t because he reduced inflation from 12.5 to 4.4 percent, and the country had an annual growth rate during his Presidency of 3.4 percent. Or the fact he changed America’s view on how she sees herself, or that he left office with a 69 percent approval rating. Or that he could get along with his political adversaries, something no one wants to do these days.Reagan finishes No. 2 on my list because he ended the Cold War. He built up the military, escalated the arms race, while shouting “Mr. Gorbachev tear down this wall!” while being in Berlin. The Communist party collapsed and the Berlin Wall fell thereafter.Oh, Ronnie had his issues. Iran-Contra affair was a little troubling, although to this day I’m not thinking it is was the scandal it was built up to be. Few can deny Alzheimer’s Disease was starting to progress during his second term.But Reagan seems to have been our last great President, who rose to the dignity of the office, and commanded the stage.1. Abraham Lincoln. Abraham LincolnWell, duh.There’s this little thing called the U.S. Civil War we fought. He preserved our nation from splitting into two. All the awhile he eliminated slavery which is without a doubt the single worst blight in our history. Lincoln also delivered the Gettysburg Address – one helluva speech. And perhaps his greatest accomplishment was getting everyone on the same page – except the south that is.Lincoln was an adept politician. I highly suggest you read Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book: A Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln which details how Abe was able to rise to power using keen intelligence and bold political skills. His genius was that he evolved with the times and the people he was with. He never sought to end slavery when he was first elected President, but he evolved into doing so.That is what leadership is. It’s about adapting to your enemies while keeping your friends. It’s about bringing about compromise with personal sacrifice and determination. It’s about doing what is right for this country.I’m not sure we have that in a leader today. I know the two running for President seem to lack any of those qualities.But America ever so often will get a good one like these 10 Presidents who in my opinion were the best of their times.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
