I would say "Ronnie" (Ronald Reagan)...(just MY opinion, not a debate)

Listen to his speeches from the 80's when he was President--what a great & compassionate speaker!

He defended our country (not apologize for it), economic prosperity via Reaganomics, less taxes, low unemployment, strengthened our military, fall of the Berlin Wall, he made us proud to be an American...

Dozens of historians agree:

Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

FDR is the highest ranked 20th century president in every single poll listed.

Uh, it's entirely my opinion, especially since I think it's not even close. I was just noting that it's a fairly common opinion.

Reagan, hands down.

Those historical polls? Most historians are lefties.

If you looked at the link you'd see that in one of the polls they split the historians by political orientation and the conservatives chose 1. Lincoln 2. Washington 3. FDR

Not that it matters to you, of course.
