Best Presidents of the United States


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Warren G. Harding (29) Warren G. Harding (29) Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death in 1923.

Terrible president. Get off the list. He lost a White House China set playing poker.

He was only nominated because he quote "Looked presidential"

Harding is terrible, but his rating as the worst president ever is actually quite unfair to his actual accomplishments. The economy was booming, and Harding was a strong supporter of Women's Sufferagettes.

42 Herbert Hoover (31) Herbert Hoover (31)

Herbert Hoover believed in his time with the country spiraling towards depression that business would help him--surprise they did not so shanty towns called Hoovervilles popped up all over the country. After his retirement, he was a great humanitarian which rates him high in my book.

He didn't cause the Great Depression he just didn't do anything to help it. He was put into a bad position because of the failures of others

I like the dam he built, but other than that, damn!

Personally saved millions of lives during WWI in Belgium and France. An amazing individual.

43 Andrew Johnson (17) Andrew Johnson (17) Andrew Johnson was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson became president as he was vice president at the time of the assassination of [Abraham Lincoln].

Johnson shouldn't be last. Harry Truman should. Johnson kind of got screwed over by Congress. You have to understand that ideologies and beliefs were just totally different back then. When you consider his presidency in context, he isn't nearly as bad. Don't get me wrong, he wasn't a very good president. But again, he was somewhat powerless due to opposition from Congress, the fact that there weren't many in government who wanted him there, and a bunch of other crap that happened during his presidency. Harry Truman should definitely be last.

Its funny to me how big of a part racial concerns are playing in this list. All of the racist or proslavery presidents are ranked at the bottom and Lincoln is number one, not that he shouldn't be. Honestly though, people aren't considering context. Back then, it wasn't a big deal at all to be proslavery or anti black rights. I mean literally like half of the country was against rights for African Americans and approved of slavery. So I don't think its quite that fair to bash a president because he was a racist. I mean come on, Thomas Jefferson was pro-slavery, and even George Washington had slaves.

Really an awful president. However, reconstruction is a perfect example of how this almost didn't matter, as the radical republicans in congress had a super majority anyway. However, he did return property confiscated in the Civil War to plantation owners, effectively ending the policy of "forty acres and a mule," and condemning southern blacks to over 100 years of oppression.

Yeah thanks for a hundred years of segregation jackass

44 Donald Trump (45) Donald Trump (45) Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

Uh... guys, while we can't call him the worst president yet, we can't call him the best president yet either. So... let's just give him a chance and see if he actually does good. If he does good, may America prosper. If he does bad, may God have mercy on us. Only time will tell, America. Only time will tell. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Hey, if an image of Mao Zedong's face on Superman can be uploaded, why not this one? Then again, you support the guy's ass, so of course you think the image is unfunny and immature. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

People need to calm down. The media makes a huge frenzy out of him which causes delusional people to believe he is the next Hitler- which is offensive to victims of the Holocaust and has no evidence to back it up. I understand why people disagree with some things he says but they also need to understand his intention behind doing what he does. And wanting him to fail is like wanting a pilot to crash the plane you're on. Agree with him or not, you need to hope he will do great things for our country. It's only been one month into his presidency. Don't judge him until we're at least a few months in. He might surprise you. Also- I can promise you he's not gonna kill millions of innocent people like Hitler or Stalin.

To all the people who are saying he has kept his promises: What on earth are you talking about? Do you all work for Fox News, or what? Congress has passed nothing since he has been in there. He promised to "jail Crooked Hillary! " (It's hard to jail someone when they haven't done anything wrong). Muslim ban! (Unconstitutional). Wall between Mexico! (Would be so expensive that anyone who voted for funding it would lose their job). Mexico will pay for it! ( You can say what you want, but remember...the comments you put on here will be here a long, long time. Mine will age well, because they're true.

This isn't even a joke, I think he's kind of hot...
