I included Carter because he was an excellent moral leader, who had some great ideas that never really came to fruition. I also count all the humanitarian work he has done since his presidency.

Obama is in there because he was the president who saved this country from meltdown and has kept it afloat, who finally reformed healthcare (even though he didn't go far enough), who for all intents and purposes ended the war in Iraq, who oversaw the death of Bin Laden, and who was the first preident to endorse gay marriage.

Jimmy Carter was negoitating for the American held hostage in Iran for 444days to be relased and was the majority reason they were released, although it was Reagan's inauguaration day. Obama is responsible for Insurance companys no longer being able to deny people for pre-existing conditions.

I would have Clinton in my list. I saw him overnight on Piers Morgan. He is a very brilliant person. His morals weren't good, but didn't hurt his presidential duties.
So far as what they are doing since being president doesn't count as being the greatest presidents.
We knew truth would add the present president. He hasn't spent 100% of his time being a president. He would rather be some kind of a star, which it seems he thinks he is. He had no experience, and shouldn't even have become our president.

But at what costs? Probably unaffordable, and with a cut off limit that will affect everybody. Did he also fix it to where the insurance cannot drop you after a certain dollar amount?

Yes, the ACA eliminates lifetime caps. Insurance companies can no longer drop you after a certain dollar amount. I think it's to early to put Obama on the list yet. If he gets a second term and manages to get comprehensive immigration reform passed, that coupled with health care reform would put him in the top five.

Some of you talk like you have no idea what is going on out there.
If he is elected there is no way he will even make the top 40. Do some searching, and know something about his plans; his plans and plans of those who groomed him, and are spending billions to keep him in there.

Obama's already ranked in the top 15 by an average of presidential historians after one term. The immigration policy will put him in the top 5 if he gets a 2nd term and gets it through. Presidents have been trying to get health care reform and immigration reform passed for the last 90 years.

I have a hard time putting Lyndon Johnson in the top 5 because he escalated the Vietnam War but he did accomplish a lot: Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965, Immigration Act of 1965. He created medicare (giving the 1st two medicare cards to President Truman and his wife Bess), medicaid, headstart, foodstamps, work study, urban renewal and federal aid to education. He oversaw the space program that resulted in a man on the moon in 1969. His presidency was characterized by a fight on poverty and removal of obstacles to the right to vote.

1. Ronald Reagan
2. George Washington
3. John Adams
4. Thomas Jefferson
5. James Madison

Founding fathers (except for Reagan) who would be appalled at the current state of our country and that moron in the oval office. There is no president throughout history with the stones these 5 men had. Reagan is easily the best president we have had in the last 100 years. He was proud of America. Not an apologist for America.

I'd have to disagree with John Adams simply because he signed into law the Alien and Sedition Acts which most historians agree threatened the constitution at a time it could ill afford it. That marred an otherwise excellent presidency. Reagan was a good president. I don't think he deserves to be in the top 5 because he lied about the Iran-Contra affair when he told the American people he never traded arms for hostages. He later admitted he did. I find it interesting you include the first four presidents, but list only one who's held office since 1817. I think overall our founding fathers would be both surprised and proud that this fledgling nation they dreamed of 200+ years ago has accomplished so much and is still going strong.
wishful thinking maybe

Still going strong? Really? No...REALLY? lol We have been circling the sewer drain for awhile now, morally and economically. One thing Obama gets top honors for...he is taking us down the drain at super-dooper Obama warp speed. Did Reagan admit he lied or did he admit that he didn't know of all the details when he made the statement and then came back after he found out and stood up like a man and accepted responsibility because it happened on his watch and he said he should have known about the arms trading for hostages? Hell, Clinton was impeached during his presidency because of lying to a Grand Jury and to Congress but that seems to be just another fun fact bump in the road that democrats fail to remember.

JFK ordered the first combat troops in to start the Vietnam war. It was dropped in Nixon's lap and he went down in history as losing the Vietnam war. JFK's democrat halo is still shining even though he started the war.
