In the history of the United States, who was the best President and why do you think so?
Thats easy, Abraham Lincoln. A man of such humble beginning kept the republic from dividing asunder. His judgment, leadership style and temperment is admired by me and anyone else that would care to look. A man of great resolve with a remarkable streak of kindness and generosity, he is my hero.
Truman, he took responsibility ofr his position and when he left office he didn't cost us a penny, Him and his wife drove home in thier own car and din't have a secret service escort and never took a job as a rewrd for being president or to sell his clout.
The question who was the best and already there are two excellent choices. If I was compiling a list of the top 5 presidents Lincoln and Truman would be on my list.
So, I will offer another candidate. Thomas Jefferson doubled the size of the nation with the Louisiana Purchase. The Monroe Doctrine, which stated that North America was no longer open to colonization by other countries came later. If Jefferson had not approved the Louisiana Purchase, there is no telling which country would be occupying that vast area west of the Mississippi River. He had other less famous accomplishments, but is certainly worthy of being considered as the best. However, comparing presidents from four different centuries is extremely difficult.
George Washington is said to have invented the presidency and Andrew Jackson is said to have reinvented it. FDR also deserves consideration for creating Social Security and for creating federally funded jobs during the Great Depression.
