22 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

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].
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.

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.

He killed the Economy - Frouze

He should be first

26 Herbert Hoover Herbert Hoover
27 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.

28 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

29 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


Shut your mouth I am afican

30 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. V 1 Comment
31 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

32 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

33 Woodrow Wilson Woodrow Wilson Thomas Woodrow Wilson was an American politician and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. Born in Staunton, Virginia, he spent his early years in Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina.
34 James Monroe James Monroe
35 John Quincy Adams
36 John Adams John Adams John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy, Massachusetts, United States. Adams served as the president of the United States from March 4, 1797 to March 4, 1801. He died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 90.
37 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?

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

If it wasn't for him we would still be under the Articles of Confederation, still trapped in Britain's Iron Grip - SoldierOfFortune

39 George Washington George Washington George 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.

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

You realize he's on this list because all presidents have to be on this list? It's ranked from most forgettable to least. So basically, he's the least forgettable. It's a pretty simple concept. -_- - CobaltCards
