    Re: The best President of the last 50 years

    I'd have to go with LBJ and George H.W. Bush.

    LBJ was the most effective President in the modern era besides FDR.

    George H.W. Bush deserved a second term. He has partial responsibility for improving the budget situation left to him by Reagan . He raised taxes when his base didn't want it...which is bold.

    He was also very strategic about the Gulf War in providing a clear mission of liberating Kuwait and sticking to it while others wanted to push all the way to Baghdad.

    I think being a President is a lot about timing and both just had very bad timing. They made tough, decisive decisions. The perfect President would have LBJ's clout with Congress and George H.W. Bush's willingness to do the right thing and foreign policy expertise.

    If you compare this thread with the last you can find out that this thread does not include George W. Bush. There will be 10 threads like this one and then we have the best President of the last 50 years.

    But that is not reasonable, in the first thread several anomalies were already presented. One, respondents already listed Presidents outside of the scope. Two, consequently because of one respondents listed reason why none on your list qualified. Three, there was not enough weight to apply a true victor from the results suggesting an alternate set of polls makes matters worse. Four, one of the answers falls outside of the scope of the question in the first place. JFK was President until his death on November 22, 1963. Some 51 years and 202 days ago.

    Having 10 different threads, each missing one that you decide on, does not equate to multiple poll error proof results. It points to fraudulent manipulation of the data in an effort to suggest a political point. So why not just get to that?

    Hmm, I know it's not Kennedy. Hint, 50 years ago was 1965, Kennedy was killed in 1963.

    For the last time, JFK was not president in the last 50 years.

    what a silly way to poll

    all had major problems. GHWB had the best resume and was probably the most decent and best man, with Ford Being second. Nixon's recognition of China was the most brilliant move, Carter's boycott of the Olympics the worst along with watergate.
