Most Underrated U.S. Presidents In HistoryAlpha101
The Top Ten
This President has faced more opposition as President than all the others, yet God always brings h out of it smelling like a rose. If God is for you, who can stand against you. When God opens or closes a door no one can close it or open it. Let's remember if God ordained it, it is so and our arms are to short to box with Him. His will be done.
Terrible president. He did nothing good for this country! The democratics didn't kill bin laden the republicans did! It took ten years to kill the bastard eight years under bush two under Obama! Therefore the republicans did 80% of the work and the democrats only did 20% of the work!
You know, people like you are why Barack Obama is considered an underrated president. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Obama gets So Much hate and it's really unfair. He killed Osama, ended the wars in Iraq and Afganistan, created a wonderful health care system, is helping to leaglize gay marriage and so much more. In my opinion he is one of our greatest presidents, yet racist ignorrant people still think he's a communist Kenyan Muslim. sad really.
Chester Arthur took over for James Garfield after he was assassinated. And did a pretty good job!
I wouldn't say most underrated president but yes a very good president the didn't get enough credit.
The most underrated president by far..
I disagree to an extent. I believe that, yes, Richard Nixon had some good policies, and some terrible ones, but what makes him awful is the fact that he tried to cover up a scandal that he wasn't even involved in! It was a dumb move caused by his paranoia that he feared getting kicked out of office. We gave him power, and look what he decided to do with it!
Actually, even though I am a Democrat, I kind of agree with this one, especially when you compare him with the hideous Republican Party of today...
Very sad that one scandal that was caused by a couple of stupid thieves has brought down one of the greatest presidents of the 20th century, with accomplishments like forming the Envirnmental proctection agency and building strong diplomatic ties to communist states such as China and USSR.
I don't believe he had anything to do with the watergate scandal! Ya wanna know why? Because after he resigned and Gerald ford took over you never heard another thing about the watergate scandal! He was a great president and innocent in the watergate scandal!V 3 Comments
The media has always been rigged against the Bush's. Both are very underrated! And only focused on their failures and not their many achievements.
Such a kind hearted and intelligent man and president. Much better and more thoughtful than reagan ever was! 1
An intelligent and gentle soul. The only republican I've ever liked!
Yes a tad underrated. But how do you beat someone and then four years later you lose to them? I don't understand that. But still a good president.
Good president. Not great. But good.
The 2nd president of the United States of America! He did a great Job as president. A founding father. Amazing president.
Don't want to bring up all the old Canadian-American arguments, Alpha101, but... we won the War of 1812! - beatles
He was very smart, and without him, we might not have won the War of 1812 and we might not have been free. - Alpha101
You guys didn't win the war of 1812 though :/
I'm not saying that he was a good president. What I'm saying is that if he lived longer then we might have known him for being one of the best. People misjudge him because he was a slave owner. - Alpha101
Only 16 months in office but in those 16 months he did a great job.
No. He was one of history's worst. - Alpha101
Possibly the most corrupt president in US history, but most of it was not uncovered until after his death, so he seems to get a pass.
The best and most accomplished domestic President ever. Vietnam stands out but he was great
Admittingly not a good president but better than you think. He got Egypt and Israel, two very different countries, to get along with each other. He also appointed Paul Volcker who was the best Federal reserve chairman or close to the top. He also decided to help the hostages in Iran without bombing and allowed more hostages to come out alive and not dead. Basically all the effects his successor Ronald Reagan gets credit for was an effect of Jimmy Carter.
Sucky president. Did nothing for the country.
He created the Department of Energy.
He appointed Volcker to the Fed.
He had a relatively peaceful presidency.
He didn't cause the horrible economy of the 70s. He inherited it. Not only that, but he tried to fix it twice, but the American people wouldn't let him. He suggested transitioning to nuclear energy, but he couldn't get that through. Then, he suggested that people cut down on unneccisary consumption, but people got angry about that. It wasn't until Volcker, the person Carter appointed to the Fed, hiked up interest rates that the economy began to improved.
Reagan didn't end the stagflation, Carter did. - Alpha101
He was the Father of the Constitution for crying out loud!
Criminally underrated. - Alpha101
The last honest Democrat to serve the oval office, comming from a conservative. I say that because there is no way in hell he would be a Democrat today.
No, he was pretty terrible. - Alpha101
How could someone think he is underrated? - Alpha101
Besides the fact that he was racist and forced the Native Americans out of their land, he greatly impacted the War of 1812. We couldn't have won the invasion of New Orleans without him. I agree that he was bad, but he's not as bad as people say he is. - Alpha101
By far one of the greatest presidents of all time! Amazing job as president! And he beat down his attempted assassion! A bad ass! And a great president!
Yes underrated! First president of all 50 states! And created the highway system! Great president. And he did a lot with the war!
