Wouldn't be my list. Only 3 who would have made it were FDR, Clinton, and probably Teddy. Wilson, possibly. Jury is still out on Obama.
Ike, Harry, JFK, LBJ, Ronnie, no way!

In my lifetime:

Too young to remember Harry
Jury still out on Obama

1. Slick Willie
2. JFK
3.Ike
4.Ford
5.Carter
6.Ronnie
7 Bush
8. Nixon
9.LBJ
10. GWB

Clinton was good. JFK and Ike were okay.
The rest were do-nothings like Ford and Carter or helped destroy the country like the rest of them.

I agree with all of the selections, but I would replace Reagan, with Carter, who correctly tried to send us on a course away from fosile fuels, and correctly predicted the on-going threats we would have to face, if we did not stop buying foreign oil.

Jimmy Carter, IMO, is the most unappreciated and undervalued president, and Ronald Reagan, the most glorified, when in fact he was a liar, who should have been impeached for breaking our laws and failing to address terrorist attacks throughout his administration, sending the signal to the growing radical terrorist organizational threats that there would be no response when they murdered hundreds of our Marines.

Bush one followed up by ignoring the terrorist attack on the TWA Flight.

both were in business with America's enemies.

The absolute worst presidents, were both named Bush. Both of them in bed with, and in business with our Saudi enemies, both of them covering up for their involvement with and growing radical threats, al Qaeda, etc., etc., threats against our country, both in business with the Saudi Royal Family, and the bin Ladens, who financed, and continue to finance, radical Muslims, and Terrorist attacks, around the world.

Bush one released and protected the crooks in the Reagan Administration, saving many of them from serving jail time.

Prescott Bush, whle not a president, was in bed with, and in business with none other then HITLER!

Nixon, obviously broke our laws, and was not only mentally ill, but a crook!

Ford, who covered up and much as he could, illegal activities of the Nixon administration, and let Nixon off the hook for all of his illegal activities.

Bush two, covered up and deep sixed much of the illegal activities of both his father, and Ronald Reagan, as soon as he crashed the Oval Office, illegally.

All of them should have been impeached.
