As Everett (O' Brother Where Art Thou?) would have put it... this guy Felzenberg is "dumber than a bag of hammers."
The best; Washington (could have been king, but set the standard that nobody has yet surpassed.), Jefferson, Jackson, Reagan.
The worst; FDR, Lincoln (destroyed state's rights), Wilson.
Zero is honorable mention in the worst category, but it's still early.
The most ignorant part of the article, this on Jackson; "Old Hickory" hated banks per se (was ignorant as to how they worked)
Au contraire! Jackson knew EXACTLY how (central) banks worked, which is why he hated them and fought to end the central bank of the time. (Oh how we need Jackson now!)
Ignorant historians love presidents who make history. Wise Americans like presidents who leave us the h*ll alone!

Jefferson was a Jacobin who was clueless about finance (no wonder he had to borrow money to go to his inauguration). Jackson was a mixed bag (have to love a guy who wanted to hang John Calhoun for even mentioning secession).
My faves: George Washington, Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Ronad Reagan.
I am firmly convinced that Woodrow "League of Nations" Wilson was likely a sign from the antichrist.

I think the worst are: Lincoln, FDR, TR (he was the catalyst behind the constitutional amendments allowing the income tax and direct election of senators), Bush II and Wilson. However I could be persuaded to reorder 3-5.
