Top 10 Overrated U.S. Presidents

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Rating: List Type:
His do-nothing approach resulted in the Great Depression and a huge agricultural crisis. Him being more highly regarded than Hoover and Harding constitutes being overrated.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Average listal rating (91 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 0
Not a bad president, but a lucky one. His tenure (unlike that of previous and later presidents) was conveniently devoid of crisis.
Lightning Francis's rating:
He was essential to the country's history in many ways, but it's often forgotten that he created a huge recession by embargoing France and Britain at the same time.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Average listal rating (4 ratings) 2.8 IMDB Rating 0
Inherited a good situation. He was a passive president (especially on slavery), and even the Monroe Doctrine had little involvement from Monroe himself.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Was an idealist who had a grand vision, but he sent the U.S. to war unprepared and refused to compromise with Congress, resulting in the failure of the U.S. to join the League of Nations.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Had more mistresses than legislative accomplishments and he nearly started World War 3.
Lightning Francis's rating:
He had a lot of positive accomplishments in civil rights and health care but Vietnam caused so much damage, that even to this day, public trust in the government has never fully recovered.
Lightning Francis's rating:
He was a strong charismatic leader, but his policies were disastrous. He started the spoils system, enacted Indian Removal and his anti-bank policies caused a huge depression.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Doubled the national debt. Mass incarcerated black drug addicts while endorsing right-wing guerillas who shipped drugs into the country.
Lightning Francis's rating:
He declared a second war against Britain, which nearly threatened the existence of the United States. The White House was burnt on fire during his administration.
Lightning Francis's rating:

1) This list is my opinion only.

2) I tried to be as balanced and as non-partisan as I could by including a balance of both Democrats and Republicans in this list.

3) Overrated doesn't necessarily mean bad. It's possible for a president to be good, but also way overhyped.
