“He was not what I would [call] a technically competent President. You know, his knowledge of the budget, his knowledge of foreign policy — it was not up to the standards of either Democrat or Republican Presidents. But he had a helluva flair. He could sell himself probably better than any President since FDR and maybe JFK. So I praise his assets, but I have reservations about his technical ability.”
