    that is about as accurate as your claim to be right leaning in the poll

    He was the most comical president for sure. I use to love watching him give a speech for the lol's.
    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    worst presidents in terms of incompetency

    Harding, Grant, Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Carter (Obama hasn't finished yet)

    worst presidents in terms of damage to the USA

    FDR, Wilson, LBJ, Hoover, Truman



    Most overrated Presidents-20th Century

    Kennedy-his assassination elevated him from average to "great" in most minds

    Most underrated president -20th Century

    Gerald Ford
    LOL
    FDR, Lincoln, Kennedy, and Clinton are consistently rated as the greatest

    Bush, nixon, Buchanan, and Hoover are consistently rated as the worst.

    The fact that you don't considered W as one of the worst shows what a complete partisan hack you are. Seriously we were probably better off not having a president for those 8 horrible years. I don't believe in god, but if I did I would ask god the question what did americans do to deserve a presidency as bad as bush's.

    Technically I am a conservative compared to you. I don't collect welfare and post on message boards all day with my obamaphone.

    rated by whom and on what grounds? liberal historians love FDR. even conservative historians give him high marks for getting his agenda enacted.

    your rants about Bush demonstrate terminal Bush Derangement Syndrome. CLinton is not rated as the greatest-that is a bald faced LIE. Harding and Grant are rated below Bush and Nixon. rating a president within a few years of his presidency is bogus.

    Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thank a look at some of these rankings and tell me there is bias. Almost all rankings have bush in the fourth quartile, except right leaning WSJ. FDR is in everyone's top 3 though.

    as I noted-FDR gets high marks for getting his agenda enacted.

    who does the rankings? historians. Remind me what party most teachers belong to?



    and even those biased polls don't rate Clinton as great so you were fibbing there

    The problem is, nobody has been able to figure out how to defeat IED's.
    We had a chance to properly supply the troops. We didnt. "Great wartime president"

    You don't get high rankings for getting you agenda enacted. Bush got all his agenda enacted and he is the worst by any metric.
