If you do not know what I mean by this, ask me. But my definition is this: what presidents did something because of pressure on them from either congress or the press or even the american people.

I have two examples:

Lyndon Johnson on the Vietnam War and George H. W. Bush on breaking the read my lips pledge.

What do you think, which presidents did something not because they wanted too, but because they gave into pressure from those around them?

Just for the fun of it, summer 2014 reading: I am taking college courses both in July & did in May. I have read all of the material for those. Besides that I read Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story & the book on Kennedy & Nixon by Chris Matthews both cover to cover & before that One Last Kiss: The Chris Coleman Story. All very informative & entertaining books. I have started Rendevouz With Destiny By Craig Shirley.
