    Who is the best President from Eisenhower to Obama?

    So I'm doing a Presidential Tournament bracket and the last region is made up of all the President in between Eisenhower and Obama. This is the most difficult region for me and I was just wondering how you rank the Presidents from 1-11. The Presidents in this region are as follow (in order):

    -Eisenhower
    -JFK
    -LBJ
    -Nixon
    -Ford
    -Carter
    -Reagan
    -H.W. Bush
    -Clinton
    -W. Bush
    -Obama

    Oh yeah, and please explain why you chose the person you selected as the best, thanks.

    Lol, no Bush II in the poll. Freudian slip?

    Anyway, this is a list of statist thugs, but the best of the worst has to be Reagan.

    Too early to have Obama on that list.

    I could only fit 10 Presidents in the poll and I think Bush Jr. is the least likely to get a first place vote out of the field, and why?

    Take Obama off and replace him with Bush II.

    It's not my decision who's on the list, just who advances how far.

    No, even if you think Obama is the worst President ever you don't think more people would call him a great President rather than Bush? Either way it doesn't matter because I highly doubt either of them would be named the greatest.

    Why are they statist thugs? Kennedy was an interventionist (Cuba). LBJ was a huge social welfare spender. Nixon enacted price controls. Ford tried to use inflation to bring about prosperity. Carter was an environmentalist nut and continued welfare traditions. Reagan cut taxes, but not spending. Bush raised taxes. Clinton, I don't need to say much. Bush was the 'compassionate conservative.' And Obama is trying to become LBJ.

    Re: Who is the best President from Eisenhower to Obama?

    I'd have to say Ike.

    I a post-WWII era, he did more to usher in a new era in America than any other U.S. president except may JFK and the only reason I didn't vote JFK over Ike is because JFK's tenure was cut way short to know exactly what else he might have done for this country. But there's no doubt the highway system, for example, changed the face of this nation in ways we're still reaping benefits from today.
