assassination attempts on PresidentsWe have all heard about the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley, and John F.

Best U.S. Presidents

Here are the choices for the best five United States presidents.  Most people have a pre-conceived notion that Abraham Lincoln should be right on top.  I don’t think so.  The man was hated as a president in his time.  Note: he was assassinated.  He did a lot of unpopular things and all of them can’t be blamed directly on his presidency, but he certainly wasn’t the person we remember.  Similarly, FDR is famous for being the person that brought us out of the Great Depression and led us in WW2.  He served 4 terms as a US President, but I argue that he really didn’t do anything that Herbert Hoover hadn’t already planned to do, didn’t really stop the unemployment rate, and if WW2 hadn’t have happened, he wouldn’t have got us out of the Depression. 

Below are my best five.  See if you agree! If you don’t, tell me about it.
