Hey once the conservative writers get around to writing about the Obama, W.H. 8 year's of nightmares, the rank of 12th will be dropping to 44th, a johnny come lately as Presidents go.

I find it interesting that James Buchanan is rated dead last primarily because 7 states seceded from the Union during his tenure whilst Abraham Lincoln is rated 1st because only 11 states seceded from the Union during his tenure.

The article states that Abraham Lincoln "emancipated the slaves". That isn't entirely true, he only emancipated the slaves in Confederate States, slaves in the Union States were not included in his Emancipation Proclamation.

That you have, Mikeyy. Doesn't make it so.

So get in your Ford, made out of steel produced in a plant started by Bessemer and Carnegie, financed by Rockefeller, drive on down to the restaurant and avail yourself of one of those Swift prime steaks. No need to worry about daylight, Edison, Tesla and Westinghouse worked that out. If you feel the desire, jump on one of those flying things invented by a couple bicycle makers and produced by Boeing. If you want to tell us about it, Al Gore did invent the internet. That counts for something. Or call us on a Bell phone. And have yourself a nice day.

Only a few slaves anywhere were freed by the Presidential rant we call the Emancipation Proclamation. None of the slaves in the South were freed by Lincoln. That would be Johnson.

These lists are nothing more than opinionated guesses. There is a list of the IQ's of the Presidents back to Washington. I doubt that few if any Presidents ever bothered to take the Mensa test. Especially after they were dead.

I must have missed the nightmare you folks on the right believe happened. But then I don't watch FOX fake news.
