Andrew Jackson? Trail of tears, anyone?

Glad someone threw that out there quickly.

Andrew Jackson was an asshole and a bad president, but he was a really interesting person.

lincoln pulled a little shady shit, sup suspension of habeus corpus
Yes! Glad someone knows their history, Lincoln was not particularly noble. And some of the other usual favorites are just as bad. I believe both of the roosevelts, for example, spent their entire tenures overstepping boundaries, expanding their power as president, and making economic decisions that were generally unsound. And alot of the early presidents were slaveholders at one point in time, so no one's perfect I guess.

Possibly because he's only 16 and hasn't had the opportunity of "being schooled" yet.
No. I put him there for the economic prosperity of the 80's, his tax increases, amnesty, and for his "tear down this wall" speech in Berlin.

Trail of tears and indian removal act were rerrible, but Jackson did do many significant things.

Eliminated the national debt.
Stopped a seccession effort in South Carolina with the force bill.
Killed a national bank, sort of ahead of his time in seeing that big banks were touble for the economy.
Beat down an assassin with his cane. (Not politically relevant, but badass.)

He also defeated the British at New Orleans in 1815, but before becoming president.

I don't understand how you can put Bush on your list. He's been out of office for two years, you have no idea how Afghanistan and Iraq are going to play out. What if those countries' democracies succeed and foster peace in the Middle East. In no way am I saying that's likely or that he's a great president, but it would be unfair to judge him at this point.

I'd agree, I'd even say it is still too early to look at anything from Reagan on since opinions on him and the following presidents are still pretty divided.
