    Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, and he was on the hook for those thoughts. That was not Idealism or intellectual debate, the Crown would have hung him for Sedition if they had caught him.

    John Adams, same risks, put his life on the line, and did so to defend the British who (may or may NOT) have fired on the civilians, risking his own livelihood to defend them, especially in such incendiary times!

    (in the same vein, almost if not ALL of the framers have to be paid the same respect, but I think those 2 really went over and above)

    Reagan. Defeated the apologist Carter administration, restored faith and hope in our country, built our nation back into a proper super power and ENDED the COLD WAR by crushing the Soviet Union. "Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

    Dubya Bush. (please keep in mind, I dont even like the results or the record of his administration in many regards!)

    BUT!!!!!!

    Show me ANY other president that had to deal with the volume of catastrophic events! NOBODY!!! The only one even close is FDR with WW2 and Pearl Harbor and next runner up would be Lincoln.

    9/11
    Katrina
    dot(.)COM bubble burst
    Housing bubble burst (significantly CAUSED and affected by 20 years of administrations BEFORE him!)
    Restored the original democratic power to Iraq, as it was before the Baath party started killing everyone.


    And the blue ribbon first place winner is.... Bush. I had to change my vote from Reagan, who I respect deeply and consider myself FORTUNATE to have served in the Corps during his Administration... but now that I look at the factual adversity of the Bush Administration vs. the rest of the outside world... yeah, Dubya has shortcomings, dont we all, but look at what he DID. We're still here after all of that! (dont get me wrong, I'll spend days going on about flubs or just pure stupid moves, but NOBODY tops his list of adversity while in office, not even Lincoln)

    Im with ya Hatch , I also served under Reagan in the Corps (G co 2nd Bn 5th Marines) ,I too think Bush has been undervalued (mostly the sheeple have followed the media to a T) , but I think Reagan made America proud again (I was still proud with Bush) , Reagan made being an American something to be proud of , it made you feel superior to any others , and for all you weaklings , I still feel superior , our country should feel superior because we are!

    Can you just imagine where we would be today if obama would have been President back on Sept. 11th. They need to go back and check his phone records and chances are he was on the phone with one of his cousins when they were in the air just before they crashed into the twin towers.

    I too believe that history will vindicate GW. I've always said that one day GWB will be recognized as one of this nations very BEST presidents.

    Unlike our current POSPOTUS, GWB had some of the toughest problems this country has ever seen to contend with- AND - definitely unlike our current POSPOTUS, GW never shyed away, punted the ball or kicked the can down the road!

    Sure, he made some mistakes. But, he ALWAYS had the country's best interest at heart; and he did NOT place a socialist agenda or re-election aspirations ahead of the HARD decisions.

    AMEN Very well said. obama is too busy trying to run this country in the ground and Clinton was only interested in what he could get away with in the ORAL OFFICE.

    +1 on Dubya, and his father, too. Did they make mistakes? Sure. But it's a far different story when you err on the side of America, rather than setting out with an intentional agenda to destroy it.

    A previous post with my thoughts and experiences with Reagan:

    The obvious followup thread would be, "What President has done the most harm?" But, of course, we'd all have the same answer.

    I would have to say Reagan, followed by GW.

    Both did step on some rights of the people.

    if your talking resent times then yeah Regan but if your talking all presdents ever then I would say Thomas Jefferson was the best presdent we have ever had.
