    Tell me who you believe the most accomplished American President of all time is and the reason you believe so.

      Obama without question.

      He has spent more money that we didn't have than any other president in history.  He has instituted the biggest boondoggle in the history of the country, with his Obamacare.  And he has made more apologies for America than any other president.

      Can't say that his accomplishments are good, but he DID accomplish them.

        A nasty little political barb, huh Wilderness?  I can cite volumes over why I think Bush the II and Reagan sucked, but this is not the proper forum....

          TY, TY. 

          But you DO have to admit his accomplishments, along with the value of them.  And the OP did not specify accomplishments that were good for the country, just accomplishments.

      Abraham Lincoln is my choice. He was without guile and a humble leader who withstood all odds to maintain the Union. He embraced his enemies and made them strong allies through his leadership.

      "I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts."      Abraham Lincoln

        I am with you rhamson, I think that Abe tops the list as an extraordinary man from such humble beginnings.

          And I'd probably join you two; Abe always got my attention, in a very good way.

                Tommy J:

                "The whole art of government consists in the art of being honest…"
                "The will of the public majority should always prevail."

                The general federal) government will tend to monarchy, which will fortify itself from day to day, instead of working for its own cures."

                What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time…"

                "It is the manners and spirit of the people which preserves a republic in vigour. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats the heart of its laws and constitution."

                As the "silent member" of the Congress, Jefferson, at 33, drafted the Declaration of Independence. In years following he labored to make its words a reality in Virginia. Most notably, he wrote a bill establishing religious freedom, enacted in 1786"
                "...sharp political conflict developed, and two separate parties, the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans, began to form. Jefferson gradually assumed leadership of the Republicans, who sympathized with the revolutionary cause in France. Attacking Federalist policies, he opposed a strong centralized Government and championed the rights of states."
