I wouldn't say he was decent, but he was a relatively good man compared to his enemies. An idealist without illusions, as he himself said, which could be interpreted as being naive perhaps, although I wouldn't call him that. He wasn't careful enough for sure, though.

Beren wrote:He had to be assassinated exactly because he'd have got reelected most likely, as he actually became popular with the people as president. He was a naturally charming man, the most charming of all presidents perhaps, with a beautiful wife and family. He was a natural born icon, so he had to be killed, of course.

Beren wrote:Those wonderful 60's.
Putin should have had such planners to plan the whacking of Zelensky and Ukraine for him.
Maybe because Johnson had a lot of deep and extensive connections in Texas.
