The Top TenXW

1John F. KennedyJohn Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the ...read more.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy knew there were conspiracies within the US government. He was on his way to exposing them. That is why this wonderful man was taken from us so early. As was his brother Bobby whose intentions were the same. To expose the corrupted politicians that sought to destroy our country. He had great dreams for the US, dreams his son wanted to go forth with and yet again he was taken also. There will never be another like JFK.

Truly a world leader, admired not only in his country but all of the world, from Northern Ireland to deepest Africa. JFK was once of a kind and the US will never heal the searing wound that his premature death brought.

A conflicted man for sure but one who despite his privileged life understood the responsibilities of the office as few have since.

A legend in history

2Abraham LincolnAbraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War - its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

The way he handled the civil war, no other would have done that

Lincoln was a strong guy he was a great wrestler if he saw booth he would of killed that coward thank you for freeing us - Jackhammer619

I really like Lincoln, he was my favorite president. He was not perfect at everything but he tried his best his whole life. I couldn't believe he was killed

Abe Lincoln broke more constitutional laws then any other president he was corrupted do your research he is one of the worst presidents ever

3Ronald ReaganRonald Wilson Reagan was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader.

Ronald Reagan always had America's best interest at heart. He made us proud to be Americans. Creating millions of jobs and taking us out of the darkness that was caused by inflation and infighting. The word's that echo in my ears still today are "tear down this wall" and so it was the Berlin wall came down. He was always so respectful of his military and so proud of them. He was a good one, better then most. Wished we had another like him.

Reagan did not think he would ever become President but he took to the role and excelled. Guided by Godly principles, he returned the trust of the people and left America better after 8 years, fighting inflation, creating millions of jobs and connecting people for freedom. Other leaders at that time could only ask about the "American miracle".

This is not really an opinion because according to an average person Reagan is the best. Bush serously more than 1/2 of the people hate him. Lincoln is popular today but not then he was president. Obama is the worst president (along w/ Bush) we had yet. - russian

He was a poor actor and that followed him into the Presidency. Amazing that he ever got elected. I guess his charm won people over...

4George WashingtonGeorge Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Only Abraham Lincoln had the influence on our nation. Popularity is over rated. My vote went to the man who I believe was the greatest President of our Nations History. All had faults, all had strengths.

I love how he was the first president of the United States and how he was president for eight years. I love him. He is My idol. He is the best president. He might be number two. But he is Number one in your heart!

After all he was the first president and who build the nation. He also build up the nation piece by piece until it reaches the full potential which is now known as United States of America.

He freed america

5Franklin D. RooseveltFranklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events during ...read more.

He was elected 4 times, no other served the U S that length of time and in that span of time did an outstanding job as President.

He led the entire nation out of America's great depression. I think that says enough about this amazing man.

He was incredible in doing his job during the depression. Pure inspiration.

A very smart statesman serving under some of our most challenging times.

6Barack ObamaBarack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.

He's told 10 times as many lies as Nixon and Clinton combined. What a joke of a man, and a joke of a leader. I'm his boss. I'm an American. I'd fire him.

This man inherited a bag of garbage from Bush. He has done a marvelous job in his office, considering where he began by having to dig us out of the unbelievable mess Bush left, to say nothing of the opposition from the Republican party and the despicable racism from the American people.

1. The first non-white President.
2. Appointed two females to The Supreme Court.
3. Saved the country from a depression.
4. Inherited two unfunded/unnecessary wars.
5. Re-elected with 50% of the popular vote.
6. Forced to work against a race-biased GOP opposition and media.

A great man who accomplished so much.

7Bill Clinton

How this man was ever elected the second time is beyond me. One is never really two different people, moral and honest in one situation and corrupt in another. He really pulled the wool over the eyes of millions of people with his smooth talk. No this man should have never been elected the first time, and definitely never the second time. The fact that he is on this list does not speak well of the citizens of this country!

No disrespect to Ronald Reagan, but how in the world he is ahead of Bill Clinton--how even Clinton is not in first place to begin with is beyond me!

Only president control middle east with out war and Palestine freedom independent... Real grade leader

Along with all of his great qualities he graduated from Georgetown University!

As a leader of the Republican Party during this time, he became a driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the ...read more.

An incredibly tough person, who survived an assassination attempt during a campaign speech, and with the bullet lodged against his ribs, still finished up the speech before going to the hospital. A shame we have nobody like that today.

Leader who accomplished much. Panama Canal, Our national parks, building up our navy, making the United States a dominant force in the world. Was a likeable, witty person, who told it like it was.

How is Barack Obama ahead of this guy? Anyone ever heard of the Rough Riders? Anyone ever heard of Obama's second-term dictatorship? - Rpemk

I'm not an American but this guy is awesome

9Thomas JeffersonThomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence.

Come on, he is the best! Scientist, atheist, smart guy who didn't involved in any shady business, participated in creation of the Bill of Rights, his quotes are inspiring till now,... I could go on forever like this. He is just the best, hands off

Jeez, I hope a lot of the voters on this list are non-Americans, who can be excused for not being familiar with all of the names.
Otherwise, it reflects very poorly on our current educational system.

10Lyndon JohnsonLyndon Baines Johnson, often referred to as LBJ, was the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969, assuming the office after serving as the 37th Vice President of the United States under President John F.

Not only did he pass the Civil and Voting Rights Acts Kennedy put into motion before his assassination, but his charisma with Congress assured him the passage of those bills. Under the Kennedy Administration, there was not enough party support for the bills but Johnson not only garnered it, he made sure they would pass. Also he passed Medicare and Medicaid, two of the most important pieces of health care legislation. He understood what the persecuted needed. He was a man who represented the minority: the discriminated, the hungry, the poor, etc.

No, in my opinion, Lyndon Johnson should be on the list for the top ten worst Presidents. Just look up pics. Of him on Google, and read the stories that go along with it and you'll see why.

I'm convinced Johnson was in on JFK's assassination - bobbythebrony

11Richard NixonRichard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1974 when he became the only U.S.

He was a great but deeply complicated man, who had good intentions but didn't always do the right thing. His leadership and intelligence helped ease tensions with the USSR and brought China into the international community. He was a great and flawed man, but he was a man.

There's an old saying Tennessee, I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee, that says elect a moron like me president once, shame one me, elect a moron like me president twice, shame one you.

This man had guts, and a BIG HEART, HE NEEDS TO BE IN TOP10 just because of what he done for Africa.

This is not best presidents but best known ones

He should be in top 3 he's the best and amazing
