Anyone who doesn't think Washington is #1 is misinformed.

That's a ridiculous survey which elevates advocates of expanded Federal power (for the most part)

Depends on your bias and what you define as "great"

You know, 4 out of 5 dentists recommend....

That fucker was among the absolute worst, and probably did as much if not more harm to the republic as any other one.

The historians will however, write the history, so he will end up great.

Ask a hand picked group a question a certain way, get the desired response.

Academics are lefties, historians are no exception. Any left-wing political figure who's alive at the same time they are they're going to fall all over themselves for. In 30 years it'll be different. W will eventually be ranked well above BHO.

So a professor at a historically black university thought Obama should have been ranked higher? This is my shocked face.

Well Lincoln was #1 and FDR #3 so I think you know the mindset of those participating, lol

JFK in the top ten? For being shot would be my guess.
Give Newsweek credit though, all the fans and haters will click on the link and they'll make some change off it.

We still have historian factories here in America?  Cool!  I thought all that important labor got outsourced.

So basically, a panel of university professors rank presidents based on what? If you think about what George Washington believed in and compared that to Obama, you would either rank George Washington as the worst liberal president ever, or Obama as the worst conservative president. It's all subjective.

Keep in mind Washington had both Jefferson and Hamilton (read federalist and anti-federalist) in his cabinet.

Oh wait,  let me back up.  Washington fucking CREATED the very fucking idea of a cabinet. That's right.  GW hated tyranny so much he made a team of (four at the time) advisors to speak with on big decisions. And then he put the opposite political ideals at the time directly next to him.

Why? So he could make the best decisions for the country. A new country.

I'm sorry,  I'm not yelling at you.

I could go on a wall of text rant that George Washington is easily,  hands down the best president ever.

Until FDRs power lust, necessitating a constitutional fucking amendment,  it was so widely known George Washington was the best fucking president ever,  successors simply followed what he did. His precedents. Most of which,  including the title of Mr President (to de elevate the position), are still in use today.

Seeing Lincoln and FDR anywhere near GW is ignorant and triggers me.

Didn't bother watching the vid.

Just my opinion, but if there were such a place as a U.S. Presidential, Valhalla, and Obama came a knocking. I gotta believe they would all be in there, looking out the window, laughing, and saying, go watch the Trump vid. Could have been you buddy, sorry.
