The US has had some giants among men as presidents, right?
A presidential friend once was asked if his friend was up to the job of the American president……and his reply is priceless…..Harry Daugherty said, “Don’t make me laugh. The days of giants in the presidential chair is passed. Our so-called Great Presidents were all made by the conditions of war under which they administered the office. Greatness in the president is largely an illusion of the people.”
Keep hold of that statement.
This post is about the underrated presidents that we had in our country……..Harding, Polk, Jefferson (believe it or not), McKinley and Grant.
Historians make the president in our memories….but were they all that memorable?
Although Americans love to trash their most hated presidents, this list is dedicated to appreciating the men who very capably served as president, but have been criticized or under-appreciated by both historians and modern Americans. Each man on this list has warts and flaws, but all strengthened and improved his country in at least one key way.
I do not agree with them but then this article is an opinion and you may not agree either.
My list is Carter and Carter alone but then I am not a presidential historian just my personal opinion based on his policies.
I am sure that you have some thoughts on this as well…..What say you?
