Default Presidential Rankings Thread...

Since Kimon made that off the cuff comment in the other thread...anyone want to have some fun ranking US Presidents since say the turn of the 19th century (excluding McKinley since he was killed in 1901 so he doesnt really count)? There's been 19 in that period (soon to be a 20th).

For me, it would be as follows:

1. Franklin Roosevelt
2. Theodore Roosevelt
3. Woodrow Wilson
4. Harry Truman
5. Dwight Eisenhower
5. Bill Clinton
7. Lyndon Johnson
8. Barack Obama
9. John Kennedy
10. Ronald Reagan
11. George HW Bush
12. Gerald Ford
13. Calvin Coolidge
14. Jimmy Carter
15. William Taft
16. Herbert Hoover
17. Warren G. Harding
18. George W. Bush
19. Richard Nixon

Debatable of course and heavily tinged by my own political views as well (but then our opinions are always heavily tinged towards our own ideology).

I would say that there is a huge, huge gap between Taft/Carter (who I'd put about the same) and those final 4 on the list...all of whom were probably at the very bottom of an overall list too. Though Hoover does get a pretty bum rap for being incompetent while the other 3 were outright criminals.

In some circles, 1 and 2 would be interchangeable. Teddy introduced standards for food (before, there was none), brought in the idea of National Parks (like Yellowstone), had no problem being on the front line of war, and thus far, has been the closest a 3rd party candidate has come to being elected President since the GOP replaced the Wigs (the Bull Moose Party).

Wilson did a lot of good things and very wisely kept us out of WWI until it was almost over so we got to massively build up our economy while not having to pay much of the cost of the most destructive war in history (up to that point). Because of that decision, if nothing else, we essentially took the UK and France's position in the world economy and both of those nations became massive debtors...as well as Germany for that matter. His biggest failures were his southern views on racism and his ego (leading to his humiliation at Versailles and his failure to get the League of Nations ratified by the Senate).

Nixon almost destroyed the presidency...so he has to be the bottom for me.

He also was largely to blame for causing WWII due to his inept handling of Versailles. He should have listened to Keynes. He also showed his incompetence in his inability to sell the League of Nations. He also resisted the shift to allowing women the vote, needing to be shamed before he capitulated, and he was a quack who regularly listened to a psychic's advice.

I would disagree there. He literally had almost zero influence on Clemenceau or Lloyd George. They were the driving force behind "punishing Germany". If you'll recall, he was against those retaliatory proposals. Clemenceau particularly was essentially the #1 person responsible for guaranteeing that Versailles was nothing more than a 20 year ceasefire rather than a lasting peace.

He was a massive failure at Versailles but honestly he wasn't the cause of the issues there. He just failed to stop the others. The Brits & French at Versailles are also the overriding reason we have the issues in the Middle East that we have to this day with their idiocy there.

To be fair on his failures with the League...his massive stroke and resulting incapacity had more to do with it than anything. Hard to campaign for something when you're bedridden and your wife is running things.

Other positives for him:

1. Transformed the US tax code with income taxes allowing for the development of a modern government.
2. He was against Prohibition and correctly predicted its total failure and collapse.
3. Creation of the Federal Reserve...again modernizing our economy from the vicious boom/bust cycle from before.

I can't overlook Versailles, Edgar Cayce, or his stonewalling of the suffrage movement. That puts him in the middle - presidents with potential, who at least had mostly good intentions, but fuc*ed things up.

So we have the great (1-2), the good (3-8), the meh (9-12), the bad (13-15), the awful (16-19)

Wilson was hardly alone in his support of Cayce. Its hard to condemn him completely for that given the views of the time period. People believed alot of crazy crap back then...Cayce was far from the only "new age psychic" of that time period.

As for Versailles, I think you are vastly overestimating his influence or even potential influence in the peace talks. The other powers were adamant in their desire to punish Germany regardless of what he said/did.

In defence of Wilson: the suffragettes gave you Prohibition (now known as the War on Drugs), so there was at least some reason to be unsure about the wisdom of that movement.

Personally, I think FDR stands head and shoulders above the rest. 2-5 are solid-to-great and are pretty interchangeable. They all had something of which to be proud. Truman/Kennedy/Ford get credit for not being stains on humanity, and Wilson, for all that he was a terrible person, also got us through WWI and at least had the right idea as far as international cooperation and leniency towards Germany.

The rest of them down the list are interchangeable as far as I'm concerned until Reagan. Reagan, Nixon, and Harding were criminals and belong on a tier of their own. Hoover/Coolidge/Younger Bush were just inept people doomed by the Peter Principle, and Clinton... well, lets just say I'm not sure why he's getting so much love. Leaving aside his personal conduct, what did he do that was so monumental or worth remembering? His only real claim to fame is that he wasn't part of the unbelievably criminal Reagan Administration (Bush Sr gets lumped in there) and the unbelievably inept GWB Administration.

1)FDR
2)Teddy

How much credit he should get for the strong economy during his tenure is open to debate, but he was pragmatic enough to realize that unpopular or not, that trying to repeal NAFTA, as it was already negotiated when he entered office, would do more harm than good. As for other accomplishments - he also signed the Brady Bill (I would prefer even something stronger in terms of gun control, but even just a return to this now seems impossible); he tried to get universal health care passed, it failed, but he did get parts of it through - mostly extensions of medicaid for poor children; he only got us embroiled in one war, Kosovo, which was justified, limited, and successful; he gave us two excellent supreme court justices - Breyer and Ginsburg. He also was a truly gifted and brilliant politician. Point to another man who could get caught getting a blowjob in the oval office, lie about it, and not only survive impeachment, but emerge as a hero that made the Republicans look like a bunch of hypocritical, incompetent, witch-hunting buffoons.

At the very least he deserves to be placed before Ford. Ford was a good man, and more pragmatic than Carter, who was a fool who was incapable of working with Congress, but he suffered from an awful economy, and all his attempts to right the ship backfired. And he pardoned Nixon. Ford did, to his credit, also grant amnesty to draft dodgers. He also continued setting the groundwork for detente with the Soviets, and he tried to finally get us to take a tougher, less blindly friendly, stance with Israel. He also, perhaps unsurprisingly, gave us a pretty decent supreme court justice - John Paul Stevens. Ford mostly just had bad luck, but he was one of the last of the old Rockefeller crowd, a memory of a time when there were actually reasonable Republicans.

Seems like we all liked Ike. I had him third. The highways alone earn him that ranking, but he also, even if it preceded his presidency, deserves quite a bit of recognition for how he handled the allied command in wwii. He also handled the Korean War quite well, and he understood the value that all of the New Deal programs had for the country. Some will likely take issue with his use of the CIA, and certainly, he was responsible for the coup that toppled Mossadegh, and sowed quite a few problematic seeds for us in the Middle East, but, on the other hand, he began the desegregation of the armed forces and famously warned of the dangers of the growing military industrial complex. And, he appointed arguably the greatest supreme court justice, Earl Warren.

Nixon? George W.?

The others I can see, to one degree or another, but those two? Even the most positive views on Bush are that he was "okay".

Nixon? I just don't get that one.

PS: I decided that was a shitpost, so here's a more substantial comment: your top 5 are basically cult of personality types. JFK? I mean, he wasn't terrible; he did some good things and some bad things. But he was more of a charismatic and he's mostly remembered for being assassinated. And this was supposed to be a list of 20th and 21st century presidents precisely because it's difficult to compare them with 18th and 19th century presidents.

In Southpaw's defence: technically, Dav did not specify which turn of the 19th century one should use. So picking the starting turn instead of the ending turn could be legitimate. Of course, that'd still exclude George Washington, but then, even for me it's difficult to properly defend right wing dogma.

Yeah he did...if you read the rest of his post.

(Though I do take your point. Typically "turn of the 19th" would mean the beginning.)

Yeah, that was a typo on my part, I meant 20th. It was explained in the context afterward obviously but I did make that initial mistake when creating the thread.
