    We are America now thanks to him, but we no longer have claim to the United States part.



    The USA may not be totally united but I don't believe that anyone is going to tear it apart anytime soon.

    Eisenhower isn't on the list but I would rank him a lot higher than Reagan (Who could have been impeached for some of the things that he did.)

    I would rank Reagan somewhere in the middle with Clinton and Kennedy.

    At least no one has decided to use this thread to prove what a total jackass they are by claiming Obama is the best ever.

    It's nice to see that Woodrow Wilson got no votes for best ever. Either he or our current president will most likely go down as the worst ever. Not only was Wilson a fascist racist who hated the constitution and criticism of the government but he also gave us the Federal Reserve and the Sedition Act of 1918. He was also a pedophile. Historians have done a good job at covering up this fact but the truth can be found with a little initiative in digging into his history from truthful sources. If there's a hell hopefully Wilson is there buring for eternity.
    Calvin Coolidge's presidency can be summed up in one word: meh

    While I don't agree with you I'd still rather have "meh" than a president intent on usurping our rights and expanding the government's power at every chance that comes along.

    Who, in your opinion is our greatest pres?

    Agreed. A very strong argument can be made for the fact that W and Obama are two of our all time worst.
