The top presidents who weren't remembered for much just that the fact that they were president.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Grover Cleveland Grover Cleveland

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

22nd president:
number 22 on list.
Anyway, back on topic. Grover will 1/2 be forgotten by US population. - TeamRocket747

22 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack 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.

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?

23 Andrew Johnson Andrew Johnson 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].

Forgetting the vice of Lincoln? - TeamRocket747

24 Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant

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

25 Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan Ronald 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 .

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

He should be first

26 Herbert Hoover Herbert Hoover

I remember him for his last name, Hoover Dam! - TeamRocket747

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

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

1st term: Hello people!
2nd term: Time to break into a Democratic building..
What I'm saying is, we can't forget him by what he did. - TeamRocket747

28 George H.W Bush

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

29 Harry S Truman Harry S Truman Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, an American politician of the Democratic Party.

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

30 John F. Kennedy John F. Kennedy John 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 more.

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

31 Lyndon B. Johnson Lyndon B. Johnson Lyndon Baines Johnson, often referred to as LBJ, was an American politician who served as the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969.

I remember him for being vice of JFK and coming from my state. - TeamRocket747

I think he stop segrgration

32 George W. Bush George W. Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

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

33 William Clinton William Clinton William Jefferson Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States . He previously served as governor of Arkansas . He became president after unseating incumbent president, George H . W Bush in 1992 . He was re-elected in 1996 after defeating Senator Bob Dole .

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...

I believe he's forgettable. He has done some good things but how much did he impact America compared to some other presidents like George W. Bush or Ronald Reagan? - CobaltCards

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

Yea, right, forgetting the author of the DoI. - TeamRocket747

39 Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was an American statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837 . He was born near the end of the colonial era, somewhere near the then-unmarked border between North and South Carolina, into a recently immigrated Scots-Irish farming family of relatively more.

His face is on the 20 dollar bill! How can you forget him?

Remember his evilness - TeamRocket747

40 James Madison James Madison James Madison, Jr. was a political theorist, American statesman, and served as the fourth President of the United States.

I remember James Madison for battling in War of 1812 - TeamRocket747
