Any within the last 50 years need not apply, frankly. I'd say JFK, but to be frank, he wasn't in office long enough to make that assessment. He was only in office for two years...
Before him, I would say you'd have to look at someone like FDR or Abraham Lincoln.
Reagan helped to pull the country out of a recession and played a huge role in ending communist rule in Eastern Europe.
I would say that was quite an accomplishment.

From a personal economic standpoint, I made enough money during the Clinton administration to retire at 40.
I long for those years of where almost everyone had tons of disposable income and spent like fiends.
GWB wasn't bad until the war started then that sucked all the extra dollars from the working man and gave it to the war profiteers.
