Let's Rank The U.S. Presidents (20th Century, 21st Century)
This is how I rank the presidents of the 20th and 21st centuries, from best to worst:
4. Teddy Roosevelt
7. Woodrow Wilson
10. George H.W. Bush
19. George W. Bush
The last 7 presidents with full terms are all Republicans, and rightfully so... They have disenfranchised, demoralized, and swindled the average American citizen.
LBJ #2? Vietnam?
Obama over Clinton? Really?
Sorry. Reagan goes second to last. No one did more to hurt this country than he did, economically, socially, and politically, except Harding, who truly was incompetent.
LBJ had a lot of domestic successes, ranging from civil rights to education to social provision: "Historian Alan Brinkley has suggested that the most important domestic achievement of the Great Society may have been its success in translating some of the demands of the civil rights movement into law." Your mileage may vary, of course...
I think Obama has done more for the LGBT than Clinton ever did. So, in that regard, I rank him more highly.
Actually Reagan is THE worst. Without the evil Reagan began someone like W never could have happened.
I agree with LBJ, because I think the War on POverty and Medicaid and Medicare trumps everything. Hundreds of millions would be dead before their time and would have lived lives of great suffering if not for things like Medicaid, Medicare and Food Stamps, especially the most helpless in the country, the very poor elderly and children.
How many of you would now have your parents and or grandparents living with you if not for what FDR and LBJ did.
What will be Obama's contribution to help America's poor? Probably a big fat ZERO at best, at worst going along with the GOP and taking some or all of what little they have.
O is still planning on cuts to SS and Medicare despite his pretty speech last Monday.
