The Top Ten

John F. Kennedy
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.
He was a all American man with a normal family and was a wonderful presdient. He was a great father and a leader...he was a man that loved his country and done what was best for his people.. His life was taken way to short he had a lot more things he would and could of done a true American hero taken...
[Newest]He's it's so sad some guy shot him in the head

2Abraham Lincoln
The way he handled the civil war, no other would have done that
Lincoln should be on number one. He was president during Civil War, he president during bad time. He did lot of things for USA. Lincoln is the best.
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


[Newest]Kept the country together during the most horrific times

3Ronald Reagan
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.


Reagan was the greatest president within the last 50 years. Obama will never be a great president or better yet a leader. Unfortunately nobody "good" ran against Obama, so we are suck for another 4 years of seeing this country flush itself down the toilet. Maybe Obama can print enough money to clog the toilet, so he thinks.
[Newest]The best president of my lifetime. He made us proud to be Americans. God bless President Ronald Reagan.

4Bill Clinton
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
Clinton is the best president in history he would crush Reagan if they both could run today n would crush Obama for the nominee

5Franklin D. Roosevelt
FDR was so popular that he was elected to four consecutive terms. His liberal policies not only helped America defeat the Nazis in WWII, but it gave us out strongest economy in history. FDR's programs from the New Deal, for example social security, are even still in widespread impacting use today. FDR wasn't only one of the best presidents ever, he was among the best leaders in the world.

6Lyndon Johnson
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


7Barack Obama
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.
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.
No he is not worth a rating

8John Tyler
Expanded slavery in western territories
Added Texas to the union
Became president after William Henry Harrison's death
Why is Tyler on this list?
He was a bad president!

9Richard Nixon
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.
Nice last name nixton

10George Washington
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.
[Newest]WHY IS THIS MAN NOT IN THE TOP 5, we owe our freedom to this man, this is a disgrace.

The Contenders

11James Monroe
Was president during the Era of Good Feelings

12Thomas Jefferson
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

13Theodore Roosevelt
He had polio and was a bada#%

14Andrew Jackson
Was shot three times and did not die.

15George W. Bush
This man had guts, and a BIG HEART, HE NEEDS TO BE IN TOP10 just because of what he done for Africa.
He should be in top 3 he's the best and amazing
Because the man has class.

16John Adams
He wrote " May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof."
