Overall, probably Harding.  His governmental policies were similar to Coolidge, but their personalities were way different.  Coolidge was analytical, very introverted, philosophical.  Harding was an all out badass, party animal that enjoyed the White House and the priviledge that went with it.

Come on, now! That guy was incompetant.

how so?

The Brits endured a series of slimebags in the 30s while in the 70s the United States endured dumb (ford), dumber (carter) and a crook (nixon).

Personally, I like to refer to them as the wizard of Oz characters.  Nixon was the TinMan, Ford was the Scarecrow, and Carter was the Cowardly Lion.  Smiley

You've gotta remember, M&C is a super libertarian so a guy who does nothing and allows people to do whatever they want while not trying to stop them is their perfect guy.

He appointed corrupt officials, was completely ignorant of several significant scandals in his administration, and was generally overwhelmed by his presidential responsibilities. In his own words, "I am not fit for this office and never should have been here."

I am devoted to Franklin Roosevelt.  In my family, my grandfather thinks FDR is a great man, and I agree.

Theodore Roosevelt is by far my favorite. I also like Coolidge, not for his policies (at all), but as a person, as well as Truman and the other Roosevelt.

Nixon was also cool.

At the very least, this turn of events seems to validate my prediction that Americans are ready and willing to fully embrace fascism.

FDR followed very closely by LBJ. 

FDR really laid the foundations of any well-being that commoners had during the 20th century, and residually have even now.  LBJ merely extended that.  His real accomplishment was in doing something that he knew would destroy 'his party' - making some minor moves towards freeing the slaves in the South.  There is something rather impressive about that gesture.. thoug obviously they're still largely subjugated people, and nothing will change that.
