    Except for the fact that any poll that puts FDR as the best president is patently false.

    Socialist Security going bankrupt is one reason to dis him.
    The financial collapse of 2008 is another.
    Until Obama, FDR was the only president to cause a depression inside a depression.
    He stole the citizen's gold.
    He raped the Constitution.
    He betrayed Western interests at Yalta.

    And sooooo much more that I'm not going to bother to list it.

    Only Wilson keeps FDR from being the worst president ever, though some put Buchanan before him with some justification.

    Thank you for your opinion, however mindlessly uninformed it may be.

    S.S. has kept millions of elderly, widows, children and disabled off the streets begging for handouts. It is as solvent as the citizenry decide to make it.

    Calvin Coolidge? Many believe that his policies laid the foundation for the Great Depression.

    I vote for Theodore Roosevelt. He was a great outdoorsman who started the National Park System. Definitely a visionary.

    It does take a great deal of political acumen to compile a list of best presidents and then limit it to one party, you know.

    Is that why "other" is so popular?

    Teddy Roosevelt is my hero because he believe that "government had the right to moderate the excesses of free enterprise." In other words, he was a Socialist, as that word is used by right wing whack-o-loons.

    You extrapolate 'Socialist' from allowing government to reign in the monopolies of big business? I suppose child labor laws are also 'socialist'.

    Some people are just lousy at making polls.

    In my opinion, a good poll should give a balanced choice of options and the maker of the poll should not give his/her opinion in the opening post.
