    Re: The best President of the last 50 years

    Reagan was the most successful at getting his agenda in place
    Ford is the most underrated. He also was a true public servant who put the interests of the country ahead of his own re-election
    GHWB was the most underrated and the most qualified man in at least 100 years to be president
    Obama is the least qualified.

    I do not understand why George W. Bush has only one vote.

    Pretty obvious, he was a terrible President.

    John F. Kennedy was killed on November 22, 1963, he wasn't President of the USA in the last 50 years.

    Except for the fact that he should have been impeached for some of the things that he did.

    I did like him in "Bedtime for Bonzo".

    Which is pretty good going, since Nixon was also an option.

    Impeachment is thrown around much too casually these days.

    Greetings, ConsvLiberal.

    Why did Obama get seven, when he has followed Bush's agenda in a lot of different areas?

    It's kind of late to impeach Reagan now, he's been dead and buried for quite a while.

    But now that I think about it a little - impeaching a zombified Reagan would make a pretty good movie.

    Because he got the most votes?
