    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
    Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.

    I wouldn't call him the worst. Overall he was mediocre. He grew government in some good ways and some bad ways.

    Easily the worst. America will eventually falter, and when historians look back and judge why, it will be impossible to ignore his idiocy all over what went wrong.

Also, with the lack of communications and media scrutiny back then, its alost hard to tell WHAT kind of guys they REALLY were.
    No, they had to deal with their own problems. Reagan didn't have to deal with being invaded by a great power of the time (Madison did), nor did he have to deal with a Civil War (Lincoln did). While it's unlikely either would have resulted in the extinction of man, different decisions made in either of those situations could have resulted in the extinction of our nation. If we look at the decisions of previous Presidents, that gives us far more insight than CNN, or Fox if that's your preference.

    That's like saying James Madison would be a terrible President because in the age of television he would be way too short to get elected, so therefore, Obama must be better because he's better on TV. "Rutherford B Hayes would never be able to use teleprompters..."

    If I had to choose one regardless of political leaning or philosophy it would be FDR, he took almost insurmountable situations and turned them around.

    He also managed to turn us into the kind of industrial powerhouse that could defeat facism.

    I believe he was one of the worst. His social programs and the fact that he kept throwing money at the economy hoping it would draw us out of the depression when it only made it worse. The war is what brought us out of the depression.

    attributing the war to economic good times is a textbook example of the broken window fallacy.
