Are you for real? He was a great president. 1. ) He basically ended the Cold War 2. ) Helped get the Berlin torn down
American economy was booming. It wasn't anything like an oligarchy, horrific statement. - Therandom
Ronald Reagan was arguably the best president in United States history. The facts are clear. He is a much better president than this list has him as and also was a very well liked president. He won two blowout elections and is reffered to as the great communicator for his ability to constantly reach across the isle and do what was right for the nation. Reagan finished up the Cold War (despite not being in office at the time) and helped to make America respected in the eyes of the world. His vision of a city on hill truly describes his presidency. He grew our military and economy in his eight years as president. I find it sad to see that some people don't understand that Reagan's agenda allowed the United States of America to be recognized as the strongest nation in the world after the mess he walked into. He set a high bar for future presidents and truly did the right thing time and time again. For those who don't care for him, read Killing Reagan! He was a great man and a great ...more
Iran-Contra, raising taxes on the poor and middle class, Savings and Loan scandal, Busting the PATCO--the air traffic controllers' union--the union's complaints were legitimate), catering to the Religious Right, ignoring AIDS, refusing to crack down on Wall St excesses, reducing funding for college students, attempts to dismantle reasonable environmental laws, tripled the national debt, forced all social security disability cases to be formally reviewed because he believed that most of the beneficiaries were cheats (cost a lot more money than was saved. ) spent money on Star Wars missile defense system that was regarded by expert scientists and engineers as unrealistic and risky, promoted 'trickle-down economics'--which put a lot more money in the hands of the wealthiest.5% with little benefit to the rest of us... Closed the mental institutions and woefully, inadequately funded community mental health centers, creating a huge homeless population.
He was responsible for Reaganomics, ramping up the War on Drugs, and allegedly importing cocaine into South Central Los Angeles. - jameshowardV 119 Comments
Typical. Blame the man in charge! The only reason Van Buren is considered a bad president is because he was blamed for all of the atrocious things Andrew Jackson done in his presidency. I also pity the foo who thinks Obama is Satan or other nonsense the media tries to convince us is true. People nowadays are just so ignorant and feeble minded to believe in propaganda that bashes out Obama like Fox News and all that baloney! Seriously, what is this world coming to!?!?!?
He continued Jackson's failed policies. If you look at the data, just as many, if not more, native Americans were killed during Van Buren's administration than in Jackson's! - marmalade_skies
The person who bashed on Andrew Jackson needs a history lesson. He didn't even hate Indians, they were attacking US citizens so if course he removed them. Try to actually read up on history before blaming others
Van Buren wasn't that bad of a president, he just had the bad luck of being elected into office after Jackson. Jackson's removal of the National Bank caused financial ruin, and Van Buren was the one who had to deal with it.V 4 Comments
The idea of starting an unnecessary war with Mexico, only to conquer land to could have the complete pacific coast united was awful, and annex Texas, who was Mexico territory, despite being colonized by Americans due to illegal immigration also promoted by United States, was also terrible
Greatest ever president! The Mexican did nothing with the land there were only 20,000 people living there. Now they of course would like it back!
The only president to support the extermination-not just treating unfairly-of actual citizens. See Mormons being hunted and eventually kicked out of their homes in the early to mid 1800s.
Bias against the Mexican people. - JustAnAccountV 12 Comments
He was a great leader. Take him off this list!
Well it's not like he's known anyway...
As if he gets recognition
He was alright even though he served a month
He shouldn't be one this list sure people are judging him on what he said but that's not what he did as president he died too soon to do something to affect the us in a good or bad way
He say this" I can survived in rain without a coat." I swear he got sick and didn't wear a coat at all! I was showing and bragging off. Is he God of Jesus? No! He is so stupid.
Lot of people say Obama did nothing. Which ain't true, he did some things. But Will literally did nothing in the one month he was president!V 10 Comments
John Adams was an amazing man, but he wasn't a very good president. He didn't spend enough at the capital, he never really did anything for America, and worst of all, he passed the Alien and Sedition Acts which were terrible. - Kevie16
He was a great president, he stopped us from starting a war with France.
I always thought he was a humdrum, everyday kind of president, that is until I realized and remembered that he passed the Alien and Sedition Acts which were supposedly unconstitutional. I say this because it violates all of our 1st amendment rights and freedoms granted by the Constitution, which shouldn't be abridged.
John Adams was basically Hitler.V 7 Comments
PEOPLE STOP! He wasn't racist because he dropped 2 nuclear weapons on Japan! If we didn't drop those nukes the war would have majorly escalated resulting in even more deaths, most likely twice the amount of the deaths at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It was a tragedy all those innocent civilians had to die, but these are the consequences of war. The only real racist act president Truman committed was forcing all those Japanese citizens into concentration camps.
No. It was a Soviet Invasion that happened the same day that ended the war - AlbertAngrySami
Our country has hidden countless things from the public for centuries. This has been done to hide many of our countries actions that were considered unfavorable or undesirable in nature. During and after WW11 there were things considered unethical and crimes against humanity, but naturally the majority were focused on the SS and we didn't want anyone including our public to see or realize what many of our leaders or military members did during that period. They then publicized a false propaganda to our nation that appealed to us all.
The reality was much different though and President Truman shouldn't have actually even been in a vice-presidential position. There was a scandal in place that allowed this to occur and when Roosevelt passed, he was then in place. He had many adversarial character flaws throughout his life and didn't handle them well. What many people get told about how the a-bombings saved countless lives was actually a false statement. They were in the process of ...more - Woodward
He wasn't racist. Germany and Italy had already surrendered, and that left Japan. Emperor Hirohito was INSANE. He would have let his whole country die before he would surrender. Truman had to do it otherwise Japan would have kept killing American, British, French, and other countries troops. The Japanese soldiers would have kept dying as well. So in a way, he saved so many people while also introducing the atomic bomb to the world, maybe making other countries afraid to fight us for a little while.
Nuke them once, shame on them. Nuke them twice, shame on him. - JustAnAccountV 24 Comments
He was never elected. He was rather still a vice president under his precessor James Garfield's laws. The only reason why he was ever president because Garfield was assassinated. He was so unpopular that the Republican Party denied him nomination for a full term. Even Mark Twain wrote that it would be hard to make Arthur's (vice) presidency better. Also, those sideburns will grow to meters.
Actually he didn't want to get nominated for a second term. He told his friends not to help. - Jordan01
Arthur was not bad, but enforced garfiled. He came from the New York senate
This guy was great! Why is it a big deal deal that he wasn't elected. Are we forgetting about the state of the union address?
He wasn't a very good president: he wasn't even elected!
He cheated our nation if you look at his history the only reason why he is a president was because of congress. He is on my top five list.
He sais he hated being president
This guy is a boss
Cheated his way to presidencyV 1 Comment
He should be higher on the list than 22. You seem to forget he almost destroyed the Republican Party. He was non existent as President, and was responsible for raising tariffs and breaking treaties. In fact he was so unpopular at the time that his mentor, Theodore Roosevelt ran against him, bolted the Republican Convention and ran as the Progressive Party candidate. Thus led to the Presidency of Woodrow Wilson.
Fattest president that ever lived he was the 27th president he was 350 the only thing smart he did was add more banks for Delaware since he said that was the best state Delaware was also the first state.
Too big. - JustAnAccount
One of the best. He was truly concerned for the country and it's people.
Though Eisenhower was a military genius, this man's response to ANYTHING was to nuke it or overthrow it. Chinese conflict at Qeymoy Island, "Let's drop a nuke! " Lebanon Civil War..."Drop a nuke! " Democratically elected officials who WERE NOT murdering their people in Iran, Guatemala, Tibet, Indonesia, Cuba, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo! Some of these countries had just democratically elected new leader, but their new leaders could pose a threat for some corporations in the U.S. so Eisenhower had them overthrown. Some of these coups were epic failures causing the deaths of many innocent civilians and led to wars that caused the deaths of millions more. More than Truman ever "killed" during the atomic bombings.
He also refused to do anything about Senator McCarthy and his witch hunts, nor did he even touch the crumbling situations in the American South.
This man was not a great president and should go down in history as such.
Who's the communist that added Eisenhower to this list?
He killed over 1million common german soilders in prision even after the war was over hs should of been tried with war crimes. he starved german 10 yrs old kids to death look up the factsV 5 Comments
The right spot for him. Good: Won victory over Spain in the Spanish-American war, probably the first time USA ever won an international war excluding American Revolution, but he annexated Hawaii.
He was an imperialist and with the old dying idea of manifest destiny had to annex an independent native country, the Hawaii
Yes, I know that the Hawaii had by far more Americans than natives, but it was not reason to annex a country!
The perfect spot him.V 3 Comments
He shouldn't be on this list, wanting to preserve nature, helping stop the Russo-Japanese war, shot in the chest and gave a 90 minute speech, wanting some equality between whites and minorities.
To the guy who wrote the comment starting "I wish we had this guy today..." You obviously did not understand Teddy Roosevelt very well. Just because he was an outdoorsman does not mean he was a low life name-calling NRA puppet like you. Teddy actually had much more in common with Barack as far as standing up for the working man than he would have ever had in common with someone like you. I hope you realize in your comments that you are talking about a classy leader with his face on Mount Rushmore, and not some gun goon like yourself. Frankly, I think the Secret Service should be interested in your comments and I hope you land in jail because that's where you belong.
WHAT?! Why is he on this list at all?! He was like the best president there was!
He's the bestV 13 Comments
He was one of the best presidents there was!

Madison, while not the worst, still did a very poor job as president. He made it nearly impossible to make changes to the Constitution (which has very outdated parts to it in this day and age) and launched the U. S. into war with Britain, which the Americans were completely unprepared to fight. These were very unwise choices.
He is a goody baddy guy
I'm the only 1 that commented thus1
This son of a bitch tried to invade british north america back in 1812. he needs to be higher. he sent an american army to burn down york in what is now modern day canada. James Madison is a jerk.V 1 Comment
He fought against corruption like no President before!
Says it in the name: he B. Hayes all the time; listens to and obeys his elders. What a nice guy!
For real he was good
He was the first to have the idea of buying Cuba and Puerto Rico from Spain, and it was an idea that remained on the American government for a long time, but when Cuba starts to search for their independence, the idea was not abandoned, but instead, they help Cuba and the Philippines and after their received that islands as a war payment and because makes no sense help a country and after keep it for themselves, unless that was the Philippines, they gave the full independence to Cuba and took Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines, but Cuba remained under the shadow of United States, and they forced Cuba to include in their constitution the Emenda Plat, that conceives to USA a permanent military base in the Island, Guantanamo Bay, but the good life has ended when Fidel Castro took power, and that brought many troubles to all American continent.
And think that all this as started with an idea of James Monroe
if he had not thought about that, the world would have been much ...more
He was so imperialist, that thinked the United States had to have a colony in Africa, LiberiaV 2 Comments
It's not really fair to put Garfield on the list, simply because he was only president for six months
THAT beardy guy died on his 200TH DAY.
Right spot.V 1 Comment
I'm just voting for him to try and push Lincoln out of this list..
I'm just voting for him to try and push Reagan off this list. Same for Kennedy.
Father of the administrative "experts" and the massive expansion of federal government bureaucracy.
