    Each individual sees and rates the presidents differently. Myself, I would put Obama and Bush the second probably right above Carter, Ford and Nixon. I go back to Eisenhower which would be the best president I can remember followed by JFK. I was born right after WWII and I can't personally remember Truman so I don't include him. But Nixon might just creep above Bush the second and Obama in a few years.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    the high interest and inflation numbers during Carter still give my father heartburn remembering how we struggled to get by

    The misery index, I remember it well. Interests rates around 12,13%. Can you imagine the interest payment on our national debt if the rates climbed back up to those during Carter. You would be counting close to all of our revenue intake just to pay the interest. If it happened once, it can again.

    then throw in inflation and there you go, the national misery index. But just wear a sweater and turn the heat down low and everything will be alright.

    My Dad was trying to get a new business off the ground on borrowed money, we survived but I remember how cold we were and drinking water at supper time a lot.

    I was on active duty during Jimmy Carter, he made the military a hallow force. But he also increased the pay tremendously for those of us that survived all his cuts. So like all presidents, there were some bad and some good in them.

    In hindsight, not a single thing was said about the ACA during our Thanksgiving. We talked about important things like Alabama vs Auburn aka The Iron Bowl, if Ohio State should be in title contention (no, weak schedule), how hunting season has been (not good), putting our Christmas tree up (done), and looking forward to our 3rd child being born (July 25th). I don't discuss such depressing things over Thanksgiving.

    Idk man, Clinton was pretty bad. He gave us minimal raises AND we never got any new equipment. We were having to tape our friggin 1980's era flak jackets closed lol.

    I retired from active duty in 1986, but I went right back to work for the Army as a civilian. I don't think Clinton really cared much for the military, but the rest of his presidency wasn't too bad.
