Of course there is. A perfect example is the history of Franklin D Roosevelt. If you look at most of what was written about FDR, you would think that he rode in on a white horse and saved the entire world. In fact, his actions were the most un-Constitutuinal in our history, such as locking up 40,000 Japanese American citizens and 10,000 Germans and Italians Americans without any due process. These were mostly American citizens, not foreign invaders. He also confiscated all of their properties and assets.

FDR was also fiercely partisan. Back in those days, you could not hold a government job unless you at least pretended to be a hard-core Democrat. My grandmother worked for the Federal government throughout the Great Depression. She lived in terror of losing her job if there was any mention of a Republican in her family. She also believed that voting was monitored, so she became a staunch Democrat out of necessity. As Hoover Dam was being built, the original design called for a large letter 'H' on the face. Roosevelt personally ordered it removed and he changed the name to Boulder Dam, because he "wasn;t going to allow it to be named for any damned Republican." I think it was changed back to Hoover Dam in the 1980s.
You will never read about any of this in the books written about FDR by Liberals. If you look at the actual history, he was the Hugo Chavez of the 1930s and 1940s.
The real problem is that most history books are written by Liberals. Do you think that any Liberal is going to write a fair and honest assessment about our current president? Most Liberals still think he walks on water. They cannot help it. There is sonething in the Kool-Aid they consume.
