Top 10 Most Forgettable Presidents of the United Statesegnomac The top presidents who weren't remembered for much just that the fact that they were president.
The Top Ten
He died 30 days after being President. - egnomac
Died after a month in office. Trivia time: this was because he went out to his inauguration on a cold, rainy day without an overcoat or hat because he'd been called old one too many times on the campaign trail. Also was President way back in 1841, another reason he's forgotten.
Well, your first point was good, but the final doesn't explain the first 4 presidents. - sandycheeks
I remember him for dying
Remembered for being the president for only 1 month. - B1ueNewV 17 Comments
I actually like Hayes. What's forgettable about him? Any answers? I'll be checking so write something.
He did nothing too great (I'm sure he passed a few laws but no one cares about him to be honest)
I actually like Hays. What's forgettable about him? Any answers? I'll be checking so right an answer.
Hayes is probably the only U.S president who I don't really know much about and immediately forget afterwards...V 4 Comments
Hear that? That's the sound of everyone reading this list googling these presidents.
I put this guy on a list of guys that can kick out of the tombstone piledriver.
Dude you mean what a Millard Fillmore is
"Millard Fillmore. Millard Fillmore. Millard Fillmore! Fillmore! Fillmore! Fillmore! " -That guy who imitated 44 presidents - TeamRocket747V 5 Comments
I want to vote for a lot of Presidents listed here (particularly the ones in between Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln, but the only thing I can really remember about him is that his last name is the name of a comic strip character. Very sad.
It was 6 months not 2 years.
He was assassinated halfway though his first year. - TeamRocket747
He was assassinated 6 months into his presidency. So, he’s kinda forgettable - KingSlayer93316V 2 Comments
He even said forget I am president I will play golf with my friends and bet the heck out of them

Silly Goose that was Henry Harrison
Uh, that was Henry Harrison.
I remember him as the grandson of the president that got the shortest term - TeamRocket747
He didn't do much importantV 3 Comments
I gotta disagree. With a name like Van Buren... - higgsboson2142
Martin Van Buren, remember him by his name. - TeamRocket747
His name though... - B1ueNew
First POTUS from New York.
Chester is the most forgotten, along with Millard Fillmore. However, if we're talking "forgettable, it would have to be someone like Martin Van Buren because he came right after Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor because he was very un-presidential (if that makes any sense, and thus would not be thought of as one), William McKinley because he is out-shined by Teddy, or Calvin Coolidge because his presidency took government out of people's lives (so history wouldn't mention him as much). Non of the presidents are or have to be bad, it's just that there are various reasons for each of them being seemingly forgettable. - Mangocave
I always forget this one.
Always forget him. - TeamRocket747
Yeah I’m sorryV 1 Comment
This guy died after a little over a year in office, ate too many cherries and drank to much milk
He is one of the best. And my fourth to favorite
What happens when you act like Kim Jong-un. - TeamRocket747
He died of cherries and milk on 7/9/1850
Bathes with his mothers dog
Kind of underrated too. Good businessman.
I remember him as Harding's vice. - TeamRocket747
Hey Toptens, just in case you didn't know, this guy was ronald reagans political hero.V 1 Comment
I think he's only this far down because everyone forgot about him here too
He didn't really do anything
I always think about Pierced Ears, that's how I remember him - TeamRocket747
To those who voted for him, until 2015, he had a mountain named after him. Is there anything in the world named after you? I don't think so...
How is Mckinley forgettable. If it weren't for him we would never have annexed Hawaii or any of the pacific territories.
Assassinated and started a war on Spain
I remember him by his angry face. - TeamRocket747V 2 Comments
I remember him as vice of Richard Nixon. - TeamRocket747
There is no soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under Ford Admistration
Ford is good!
I remember him as being vice president of the 1 month term. - TeamRocket747
Sometimes, I forget every president except the famous ones. John Tyler is one of them
I'm pretty sure he was Lincoln's Vice President - Randomator
He was the president for only a day after Zachary Taylor died in office. He is never mentioned in any history books. This man is the most forgettable president in the United States of America. - arttheperson
Um, he wasn't ever actually the president, because he was never sworn in. If he was, than he'd be put in the president list
I Put Him In The List And I Think No One Will Remember Him.
He's not the president. - TeamRocket747V 2 Comments
Give him a break, he hasn't done anything yet because of the Democrats (aka, snowflakes- because they melt easily) won't let him do anything.
He is horrid and I can't even count all the bad things he is and has done. No one's forgetting him, teachers can use him as a bad example for kids - Swiftdawn
Bombastic and full of hot air, but 18 months into his presidency, he is doing a pretty good job.
Forget the guy who is currently in office? - B1ueNewV 12 Comments
He shouldn't be. He started the Civil War, that dip.
He's the worst president ever known for starting the civil war or rather doing nothing to prevent it - Randomator
I remember this beast for causing the Civil War - TeamRocket747
THIS IS FORGETTABLE! NOT WORST! Jeez, this is why I left TheTopTens almost. - TeamRocket747

I remember him for being stuck in a bathtub - TeamRocket747
How is the current president forgettable. If you think about the president of the United States I guaranteed you'll think of him
First black president ever... I don't think so.
He may have had fewer votes in re-election than his first time but that is misleading and frankly, I think you know it. Obama was elected comfortably both times. Contrast that with George W. Bush, who was within one state of being defeated and was elected by the thinnest of margins both times. This is what Republicans do, they try and resurrect the reputation of their failed presidents by using false or misleading statistics. Reagan was highly unpopular when he left office, but the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson spent millions to glorify Reagan and vilify Democrats. They're trying the same thing now with W, but it's not going to work as well. Reagan wasn't great but at least he wasn't God awful like W. And W's daddy was overrated, too. Remember, Clinton had to pull us out of a recession, didn't he?
How do you forget him. - B1ueNewV 9 Comments
I read him on a list, that's how I know he exists
He annexed states from Mexico though. - ethanmeinster

We had a president named Grover? But he was famous for being the 22nd AND 24th President.
Lol, I remember him because I did a project on him in 5th grade. - Absolite
22nd and 24th. - TeamRocket747
number 22 on list.
Anyway, back on topic. Grover will 1/2 be forgotten by US population. - TeamRocket747
Forgetting the vice of Lincoln? - TeamRocket747
Here is one that I think should be way higher. Many people don't even realize that Grant was a president, he's just thought of as the Union general during the Civil War. Let's just say he was a much better general than he was a president.
He's not that forgettable compared to others, but I agree to the comment that says we all thought he was a Union general because I did to before a couple of months ago.
I remember him for screaming, raging, and ranting, because he spilled whiskey on his pants. - TeamRocket747
Why is he on a the 50 dollar bill any way
Nah. The Great Depression shall never be forgotten. - ReltihFloda
I can't forget the biggest villain of our country. - B1ueNew
I remember him for his last name, Hoover Dam! - TeamRocket747
In 1987, there was a future presidential candidate who said the world was "laughing at us", that our country was "weak" and he was "sick of it". He went on to say our next president had better be one who can bring about "change". He continued on a 30-minute rant about America's low standing in the world and lack of leadership. This certainly had to be some Democrat, right? Maybe Walter Mondale, Geraldine Ferraro, Michael Dukakis? Actually, the speaker is doing the same thing 29 years later. It was Donald Trump.
Republican money won't let you forget him.
Why would you forget the guy who ended the cold war? - TeamRocket747

We can't forget a antagonist. - B1ueNew
How will we forget? - TeamRocket747
Forget Watergate, and research this guy, and you'll realize that he shouldn't be on this list. The reality was that he was actuallt a good president, before Watergate
Compared to Johnson and Clinton [Hillary too], this guy was a Boy Scout.V 1 Comment
As I started to mention under Obama, Clinton had to pull us out of the recession that daddy Bush had us in. This, despite the fact that we were at war! Until the Bushes, a recession during wartime was unheard of. The only saving grace to a war was that at least it kept your economy strong. But the Bushes found a way to. Screw up even that.
The father of a bad president, we can remember him! - TeamRocket747
Um, dude, he was the one who allowed the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. I don't think he could be forgettable after something like that happened. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Remember him for being Vice for FDR and what Modern said below/above. - TeamRocket747
Yes, this or Washington has to be the most ridiculous posting, although Obama is a pretty odd one, too. People are going to forget the first African-American president. Right...
Um, nobody will forget JFK
We all know JFK and will remember him. - TeamRocket747
Shut your mouth I am aficanV 1 Comment
No, that is one thing I can say about W, he will not be forgotten. Though Republicans are trying to...
He isn't even forgotten for the war of Iraq and Afghanistan
We will never forget a villain. - TeamRocket747
No he won't be forgotten for a while, but he will be there in the junk pile with Buchanan soon enough.
He certainly won't be forgotten this year...
Love him! No way are people forgetting him - Swiftdawn
I remember Bill for me and him having a common ancestor.
Yes, together, we are family members that never met.
I am the long lost cousin of him.
Meep. - TeamRocket747
He wrote The Declaration Of Independence! No one will forget him! - Swiftdawn

If it wasn't for him we would still be under the Articles of Confederation, still trapped in Britain's Iron Grip - SoldierOfFortune
I remember James Madison for battling in War of 1812 - TeamRocket747
The Bill Of Rights? Hello? - Swiftdawn
Who put this on here. Weather or not our nation exists for another hundred years or another thousand years or another 59 millennia, he will always be remembered as the founder of our country and the man who lead the revolution that freed us from English oppression. Does that sound forgettable to you?
The father of our country forgettable?!
I will never forget about him
