He wasn't the first president to change policies.

He DID try to keep the USA out of the war until his hand was forced
so don't be too hard on him in that respect BUT he buggered everything up with the reparations on Germany at the so-called Peace Treaty of Versailles.
Actually if anything he alone was responsible for HERR HITLER!
