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?

Is Ted Cruz more of a jerk than an effective statesman? Why or why not? What is your opinion of him?Cruz is apparently hated by many in his own Party. Is he a mere opportunist or is he a patriot? The words of Franklin Roosevelt come to mind: "They are unanimous in their hate for...

I have been accused by some in HP of being a Trump apologist and defender...As I explained many times, I am a conservative and call it as I see it.I did not vote for Trump but I also defend him when I see the criticisms were unfair. I also call him out on things that did not get accomplished as he...
