For my choice of best I mainly measured by Johnson's great society and for my worst it was a tossup between W. Bush and Ronald Reagan but i think Bush just barely edges out Reagan worst due Iraq and Afghanistan.

I did the same. I think his Great Society was such a positive move that it overshadows his Vietnam blunder.

Ultimately, at the end of the day, I feel the foreign policies of every Post-WW2 U.S. President were ultimately atrocious - some were just better in a RELATIVE sense.

I'd mostly agree with you here, which is why I'll generally grade the presidents on their domestic accomplishments, since I've nearly always disagreed with their foreign policy.

I am being as unbiased as possible.

Best: Trump (due to, in my opinion, being thrown into the hardest position since FDR, with NK, Russia, unpopularity, debt, Iran, ISIS, and tons of other thlngs his predecessors left for him)

Worst: Ford (was really unprepared and ineffective)

Obama is worse than Nixon?

I'd certainly say so, Nixon was an ok President, he was a Moderate-to-Conservative President with some ok policies who had one major scandal. Obama on the other hand has had dozens of scandals all covered up by his administration with policies that have sent America on a dismal path.

A dismal path? Which Trump has segwayed off in his own direction off the precipice into a bleak road to oblivion, or at least ruin? You Americans really know how to elect your leaders, don't you?

I presume you're talking Watergate but you may be forgetting the Cambodian Invasion.

"Won us the war"? Saigon is gone, we lost, and 1,353,000 people, most of which were civilians were killed, if that's your definition of victory what's a defeat !?
