Most Overrated U.S. PresidentsBeezer Some presidents have legacies that outlast their actual actions. Here they are:
The Top Ten
Finally. A list he actually deserves to be number 1 on. Worst president that we ever had. He believed trees caused pollution. Poor children should eat ketchup for their vegetable. Trickle down economics. What a sham. He destroyed the fmiddle class. IranContra for which he took no responsibility. Worst president in modern times
Worst president next to trump
The economic plan was good. For it's time that is, but think the Republicans that praise him today are nostalgic for a time when the family they grew up in was well-off, while millions of others were struggling. Also keep in mind the national debt increased 191% during his time as president.
Should be much higher on this list!V 17 Comments
Through his 3 years, JFK only had a shaky economy and the mishandling of the Cuban Missile Crisis. He didn't do much. He might not have had a lot of time to do anything, but the legacies of people should be considered based on their actions, not their potential. - Beezer
Ronald Reagan is not overrated. What did Reagan do wrong? JFK for one thing had sex with another woman in the Oval Office and he had a shaky economy and mishandled the Cuban Missile Crisis. The only reason he is popular is he died due to assassination - 2storm
Time in office doesn't matter it's actions he messed his presidency up with bay of pigs and Cuban missile crisis johnson fixed his damages as he destroyed eisenhower's
I agree that Kennedy is a little overrated, but it was STILL sad when he died. - IcetailofWishClanV 3 Comments
Washington was a great leader in the Revolutionary War as well as the first president.. However, he did not do much in his two terms. He did show control and a more important grasp on what's important for the country over his wanting for power, but his presidency did not have much of an impact as one would think. - Beezer
He was a horrible general read fakes frauds and phonies
He put many innocent Japanese Americans into internment camps. It was the American equivalent of the Holocaust. How could someone who helped bring the U.S out of the Depression and win World War II do such an atrocious thing as bad as Hitler did? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
He really wasn't good at all and people think he's amazing
Most of you don't want to admit it, but you hate President Obama because he is black. The government corrupted things for black people before Obama was born. It was brainwashed into people for generations. Obama is a better president than you'll ever be. - 9713524179
Far from a Republican - pancake2015
Mountains of debt, socialist ideas, letting Russia mop the floor with America, why did we elect him?
He panders to the Muslim brotherhood and shinesV 1 Comment
Although changing around the way the government handled big business, TR was not the best when it came to actual legislation and solving problems. His greatest achievement might be the Meat Inspection Act and that was spurred because of Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle". - BeezerV 1 Comment
Lying under oath aside, Clinton seemed to run out of steam at the end of his presidency. The economy went down and the federal government was hated more than ever. Although his presidency might be too early to judge, the way that the public approves of him might be inaccurate. - Beezer
Bottom 10 is more like ir
Monica Lewinsky... - torsja29
I Think He Should Be Way Higher On This List But At Least He Is On It.
Good president because he allowed women to vote
Way too overrated. This guy was actually very racist and unpresidential over all.
He is a good president for women sufferage
Declared Martial law without consent of congress, drafted thousands of men to their deaths without consent and to top it off he seems to get credit for the freeing of slaves even though he didn't care at all about freeing them.
Worshipped in the media to condition the people into accepting tyrants like Bush and Wilson.
Only opposed slavery for military and economics reasons, not because he thought it was morally wrong. He also opposed equal rights for blacks and wanted them deported back to Africa.
He only thing he did was free slaves nothing else. But he was a pretty good president.
Johnson was on track to having one of the best domestic policies in American policy. And then Vietnam happened. His lack of awareness went to his downfall as Johnson just couldn't have a "New Deal-esk" platform while fighting in a war. - BeezerV 1 Comment
It depends what you're opinion of a "good" president is. Polk did get a great amount of land from Mexico. However, he did so forcefully and was a very poor act of imperialism. Although the ends were good, the means weren't as much. - Beezer
What ever rating he has it is more than he deserves
Carter had huge indecision with the economy, switching his platform several times. He had no real authority or confidence in his presidency. - Beezer
He's just an idiot, in my opinion.
He should be #1. - PerfectImpulseX
Nothing that good really went on during his presidency. He abused the power of his role and didn't have a real exit strategy to Vietnam. Some people believe that Watergate overshadows his accomplishments as president, but there weren't many in the first place. - Beezer
He was a good leader, but maybe not in the right direction. While laborers were begging for change and a right to collectively bargain, he was against it. - Beezer
