Who is your favorite US President to date and why?
Can include the 4 candidates in the 2016 election.
I have to pick two because they are tied.
JFK and Ronald Reagan
Both of them took a bold step to protect the country and the people.
Cuba was defused from a possible nuclear war, and the Berlin Wall came down ending the cold war. Both of them took on Russia and won.
Instead of the word "favorite," I would use "effective" instead:
Have to agree on Brad's first 2:
1. JFK (see above)
2. Reagan (see above ) & restored a certain spirit in the nation.
3. Lincoln - Kept Union intact which helped end slavery. Unfortunately his full vision was not carried out after the war and that led to Jim Crow, etc.
4. Teddy Roosevelt - Made America a world power in the wake of the Spanish American War, and trust buster. Let emotions get the best of him sometimes, but effective.
5. James Monroe - Stabilizing force diplomatically and domestically. U.S. standing was raised further.
That does sound better, I will change it thank you
And an interesting list, good reasons I agree with the order however I feel Obama deserves a place in the top 5, thankyou for your comment CJ
I agree also with 3&4. but I would say that without George Washington there would not have been a United States.
Reagan by far is the clear choice. I wrote a whole hub on his accomplishments. As far as I know, Reagan was the only President that won 49 out of 50 States in his second term in 1984. What other presidents have united us before or since?
