Clearly better than Obama (third worst), GWB (second worst), Wilson (worst), Carter, Hoover, Taft, Harding, GHWB (souter WTF), LBJ, Ford, Clinton (China WTO/NK/OBL, illegals)

Based on his record so far clearly inferior to TR, Eisenhower, Truman, FDR, Reagan. Might still overtake them

somewhere around Coolidge, Nixon would be my rating

So 6~8

Reagan was a mediocre president at best. He embraced the globalist agenda and gave amnesty to illegals.

Truman should have stopped fighting with Japan and instead joined with them in conquest of China.

you seem to have conveniently forgotten the countless naval battles/invasions and serious loss of life that US and its allies suffered in the Pacific theater between Pearl Harbor and Truman becoming president. Not to mention Pearl Harbor itself

what kind of retard thinks that we should have conquered China? We didn't even bother conquering Mexico next door. You are looking at it from the geopolitics perspective of 2018. china wasn't worth shit in 1945 not to mention that Japan and US had no mutual interest or affinity

an intensely patriotic and zero sum guy like Trump would have nuked Tokyo for good measure after what Japs did to US troops even after their surrender

Joining with Japan would imply that we had shared interest and there was none on both sides. and china was of zero interest to US in 1945 bcos it was of no economic or strategic value as a feudal, agrarian state with no industry then and didn't even register in our strategic radar. why would we ally with our mortal enemy and serious threat like Japan to conquer china, a country that was of no use and irrelevant to us in 1945. Japan on the other hand was hell bent on dominating the pacific and had to be eliminated

You are evaluating Truman as if he should have predicted all the world events (globalization, industrialization and rise of china, pacification of Japan) leading upto 2018 in 1945

your response is seriously so insane that i cant resist responding to it. you might have a slightly better argument regarding Hitler - He never threatened or attacked us so US intervention there was more about principles than national interest

Well, yeah, I am evaluating him based on how things turned out in the future. LBJ is obviously the biggest disaster from this perspective, but you could also say that his bad results were much more foreseeable. I'm not really saying Truman was a bad president, just that I think that certain things could have been done differently then that might have worked out better.

Right now he's #3 GOAT in that time behind Reagan and TR. Could easily surpass TR by end of first term if things go at current pace. Surpassing Reagan after 2 terms would require essentially winning the war against illegals, permanently disarming NK and Iran, or something similar.

Unlike FDR he didn't botch up WWII and played the end game pretty well. FDR was a disaster in 1945 - gave away the store to Stalin. Konigsberg to Russia? Stettin to Poland?

WTF

Truman was 180 in how he ended WWII and more importantly he realized the threat from Soviets and handled them brilliantly unlike FDR. And rebuilding of Europe and Japan will go down as one of the greatest accomplishments of any POTUS ever.

On the domestic front he didn't fuck up anywhere too bad. He also did some good things like reorganizing the US armed forces, starting desegregation etc

All good points but you're being unfair to FDR for marshaling resources and talent to put us in the position for Truman to get it over the line. Who knows how FDR would have treated the Soviets after the war but it's hard to judge now since we know just how shitty the Russians are and how quickly they would get the bomb. I don't know the story about how accommodative FDR was to them

Eisenhower and Truman are both overrated by being chill 180 bootstrapping bros. I love that Truman dropped the bomb but think FDR gets more credit for recognizing need for Manhattan Project very early and for managing the war in general. I put them both somewhere a ways after Trump at #3 and FDR at #4. Despite the New Deal, you win WWII as POTUS, you've earned a high rating imo

FDR fucked up Europe by being too soft on soviets. and manhattan project was completely irrelevant to the western front. also we would have just fire bombed japan even if we didnt have the manhattan project. he is definitely behind Truman for sure

FDR would have tried to destroy Germany even after WWII (Morgenthau plan) and with him Stalin might have tried to venture beyond poland. thank god he died when he did

you have to look at it based on where the country/society was in 1960s/1970s before Reagan. after FDR the idea of small government, low taxes, political conservatism was completely out of vogue. Reagan era is rightfully called a revolution because he essentially birthed the modern GOP including its cuck GC aspect on free trade

Reagan was one of the most consequential presidents in modern american history based on how much he changed politics
