Why did you start at number 45 on the list of best presidents?

Rachel Maddow’s Red Glare,
Liberal heads exploding in air,
Gave proof through the night,
Donald Trump is still there!

Her friends the Communists,
Massive fail last Wednesday!

Every time I’m looking up,
The Left is after Donald Trump

I’m gonna soak up the sun,
I’ve got my 45 on,
So Trump can ride on!

The only President from the past 50 years to make my top five list is Reagan.

Next most recent is Ike.

Obama wasn't as bad as many conservatives make him out to be. Overall, I think he was no worse than George W. Bush. I think Bill Clinton, who receives far too much credit these days, was worse than both.

Bush 43 was the worst president ever! hands down. Woodrow Wilson did some bad stuff too. Clinton's tenure was a major success. Obama, The tea farty pretty much ruined his presidency and to be fair, John Boehner's tenure as Speaker of the house.

Reagan, I think is a bit overrated and a lot of the history in his 2nd term seems to get whitewashed, The Soviet Union would have fell apart Reagan or no Reagan. Still, he acted presidential and brought back confidence to the office.

Eisenhower was a well balanced president as was Bill Clinton. Teddy Roosevelt did many good things. Mixed feelings about Truman, FDR, Nixon,.

MW I agree with you except for Clinton. We got real Welfare reform under him. I also did well personally under him. I didn't vote for him first time but did the 2nd time. I would put him top 10. I will give Bush credit for his handling of the 9-11 attacks. His finest hours in my opinion. I mean his handling of things here, not overseas.

Funniest president of all time, George Bush Jr.!! Yep, David Letterman joked about that in "Great Moments In Presidential History" during the "Late Show"!!

Just as an outside observer, I liked Ford, Carter, Bush Sr. and Obama.

The sleaziest, Nixon Clinton and Trump.

You can add JFK to the sleaze list. Same as Clinton when it came to womanizing. And like Monica at least one of JFK’s women worked in the white house.

Eisenhower, Pappy Bush, FDR, and probably others all had extra-marital affairs that are documented. Even as far back as the founding fathers. Sex with slaves, etc.

If you want a US President and Congress free or nearly free from sexual and/or criminal sleaze - elect Americans who aren’t men.

I didn't even consider their sexual indiscretions in my sleaze characterization. Clinton, on his final day in office, in his final hours, pardoned some of the worst criminals in the country.

No need to explain why I labeled Nixon and Trump as sleazy.

Sleaze is sleaze.
It means the person elected to office is willing to lie to, cheat on, and steal from his/her family and voters alike.
Greed-driven, lust-driven, and/or deranged.
Sometimes not just disrespecting public trust - but actually placing the public in danger.

Carter was incompetent but also a victim of circumstance, dealing with the aftermath of The Vietnam war, inflation, and Iran. No president could have stopped some of that, he was just in over his head.
