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.
Thank you Obama care
Ya I know
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.
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
He is my third to favorite president. Super underrated. Remove Grant and place Taylor and remove Jefferson for Madison
Only 16 months in office but in those 16 months he did a great job.
Also my third to favorite president. He was a veteran in the Mexicon war
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
Brilliant, relatable and left us with a surplus! Great president. I was proud of our country with him at the helm.
Phenomenal, glorious leader!
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
You guys didn't win the war of 1812 though :/
No. He was one of history's worst. - Alpha101
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!
And people call him overrated. He was actually great. He ended world war 2. For the people who say he's overrated because he bombed Japan to end the war, let's have more casualties and more war time. Great idea. - AStumpedHuman
Truman Doctrine... Enough said.
Had to make one of the most important decisions in the history of the human race, with almost no warning or knowledge about what it even was [atomic weapon], or that he would have to be the decision-maker [Roosevelt's death during WW2].
How could someone think he is underrated? - Alpha101
Helped pass 13 14 and 15 amendments
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.
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!
Yea! He sent Natives away because of their race! What a great president! I bring out the sarcasm attack. - TeamRocket747
Yes underrated! First president of all 50 states! And created the highway system! Great president. And he did a lot with the war!
Coolidge did much to restore dignity to the office after Harding's scandals. He also presided over one of the greatest periods of economic growth throughout most of the 1920s. It wasn't his policies that led to the Great Depression, rather it was the attempt by Hoover to micromanage the economy.
Seriously? He Did So Much For Our Country Yet People Think He Didn't Do To Much Since He Got Assasinated!
Not a great President, but he doesn't belong anywhere near the bottom. - Alpha101
Someone ran out of ideas so popular presidents are here - AStumpedHuman
He was the only president to not violate the Constitution or to expand the role of his office.
Not just the most underrated, but for me the single greatest presidents of all time. In 200 days he achieved more than many presidents achieved in 4 years.
One of the best presidents ever!
The most overrated. Paid no attention to the scourge that was Aids, wanted poor children to have ketchup in school as opposed to nourishing vegetables thought trees caused pollution. /let Oliver North take the fall for him when Iran/Contra shady dealings were exposed. - Pfeifferpfan
Come on, he can't be blamed for the Depression. It was the market economy. It was something completely unprecedented in history. There was nothing he himself could've done to prevent it. In an alternate timeline without the Great Depression, he could've been one of the best presidents of all time.
