    Aint none of us in a position to really know, honestly.

    But from what I know I would say Reagan hands down. 'Reagan Era' and 'Reaganomics' are two terms we still hear to this day. Reagan was hated specifcally for his policies against minorities.

    Bush spread the love with his hate. He was hated universally

    Reagan was disliked but really people had mixed feelings cause he was known for his conservative ways as a actor but people liked his movies. His real actions came after he was president with the Iran/Contra scandal.

    The first Bush was only one term. Clinton was already doing his thing as a up and coming candidate. Clinton was want Jimmy Carter should have been.

    Even people who don't follow politics know Reagan is the devil. I was born in Apr of 84 but I follow politics and listen to dude's speeches today and wonder how the hell he got elected.


    The media machine has lightened up on Reagan a lot lately, I'm sure you all saw the cover of Time Mag with "Obama ♥ Reagan" on the cover...that alone tells you that the revisionist history of that time period is going to begin.

    I feel u... American mainstream media will never admit we can have "bad presidents" all they will do is wait 20-30 years and hope people who are alive are too young 2 remember what happened or simpily 4got how bad it was during dat time

    Reagan was the president during his time in office. The Cold war made him a favorite. If it was no cold war Reagan would be a failure. I very young during his time in office but remember the Berlin wall speech. The Movies during that time reminds me of propaganda movies. But the scare of the Russians was real! People was really scared of Nuclear war.

    Hindsight is 20/20 though so it seems like he should have been hated back then.

    typically, you hate the president in office the most, because the current president is always the WORST EVER or the BEST EVER

    Ford is not the BEST example, considering he was only president because Nixon resigned; however, you might also be forgetting how much people hated him at the time for pardoning Nixon. do we not recall his popularity?

    Carter not hated? wow.

    but really, my theory is that you were not alive for either presidency, which is basically my point: when Carter was president, people HATED him. now? it's in the past. whereas Obama is the WORST EVER or BEST EVER president, or maybe Bush II is the WORST EVER or BEST EVER president.

    U are rite I wassnt born so all I can go off of is peoples opinion and what I read.. But the reason I said carter wassnt hated or loved was because most presidents have that 1 agenda that people kno u for and as far as history is concerned it dont equal the agendas of other more "famous" presidents...

    talk to people who were around for Carter's presidency and you'll see some of that emotion.

    Funny thing about Regan is he didnt start out as a Republican..nor was he conservative in his acting days or while he was head of the Screen Actors Guild..

    They originally wanted Charlton Heston to run but he refused to run so they persuaded Reagan to fall in line..Reagan was their guy way before he announced, they groomed him for years then when Carter's term was up the Republicans swooped in and got their guy in office..
