I did not like him as a president, but I do realize that he was very important in his actions of forming the new political parties, which competed against Jeffersonians that "ruled" before. His Indian removal act and bad economic policies did not leave a good impression on me. He did make a successful and commendable victory at New Orleans, but at that point the war was already over. Because of this, I do not hate him, but I simply do not like him.
You guys are forgetting a lot of other stuff he did. He greatly expanded the nation, encouraged so many people to vote and got the highest turnouts in history, and also ended the nullification crisis. Yes he made some mistakes, but he was one of the better presidents we have had.
