    Who is the best president in your lifetime?

    Here's what Americans think:



    Obama is the clear favorite. A little surprising that Trump did as well as he did.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    This is really sad from a liberty perspective.
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.

    True, but we do have accurate books on deeds, what was said by them etc....

    I suppose Roosevelt would have been much higher in their regard, but of course, few Americans remember Roosevelt. It's worth noting that Reagan considered Roosevelt the best president in his lifetime.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Pretty much. We're good at it. We stay prepared for it. And as Napoleon said, you can do almost anything with a bayonet, except sit on it.

    I would agree with that list ... though I would have thought Roosevelt would have been higher and am surprised Trump is even on the list.

    I'm close, 72, so I missed FDR. He was clearly the best in the 1900's. In my lifetime---Obama. Trump is simply a disgrace.

    two things come to mind - first, trump has been president for 17 months and came in fourth

    the top three served for 96 months each


    second, the kennedy mystique still lives - what's forgotten is the cuban missile fiasco, kennedy's penchant for whoring that set the stage for clinton, and the fact that the escalation in Vietnam started with JFK at a level never matched by LBJ

    judged by their accomplishments, JFK would be dead last and Nixon would be near the top

    bammy's failed presidency wouldn't even register

    What about you?

    Do you think his greatness was demonstrated when he tried to pack the Supreme Court?

    Do you think his greatness was demonstrated when he ordered the mass relocation and internment of some 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry during WW II?

    I am beginning to think that the left admires the Presidents who attack the civil rights of others.
