I think he was a good president because he was the first so he had no one to tell him any tips or advice. Like other leaders before him they were usually monarchs who only cared about jewels and having things go there way. But with Washington he took others opinions into consideration
George Washington was not exactly a good president. It's true he never took tips OFTEN, which led to some downfalls. For example, with a small army he tried to invade other countries that had greater armies because he had not gathered more soldiers. If it was not for advice from the council, we would have been smashed, defenceless and been slaved while poor innocent people tried to defend would have been killed or slaved.
