  • Good question! I think the last Bush will down as the worst President in history. He once said "Let history be the judge of me". I really dont think history will be very kind to him or his administration. Sad part, he was in a incredible position to really remake the image of the world through the internet and the US leadership. But he managed to alienate almost every nation on earth because of his ignorance and his policies. +5
  • James Buchanan takes the cake. He set the stage for the Civil War that Lincoln inherited. Nothing quite says "Bad President" like causing the country to tear in half and go to war with each other. More Americans died in our civil war than in all other wars we've been in combined.
  • No comments. lol +5
  • As of today, I'd say Jimmy Carter. I reserve the right to modify my answer in three years. It will probably change.
  • Obama takes the cake on that one. Hands down.
  • I know that everyone is going to say Bush, but Harding was TOTALLY worse.
  • It is such a toss-up to knowingly get DRd: Johnson for holding cabinet meetings in the bathroom while he took a dump. Reagan for leading the country with Alzheimers. Bush for being torture-hungry, war-hungry and out of it. Nixon for being power-crazy. I just can't pick. +5
  • In my lifetime I would say Jimmy The NitWit Carter! lol +5 Amber. Best, Jonathan
  • I'm only familiar with presidents while I've been alive, and I would say Carter, then Clinton.
  • Probably Ulysses S. Grant
  • Carter. Mr Do Nothing.
  • I would have to say George W Bush. He did absolutely nothing right.
  • Jimmy Cater
  • Richard Nixon must win that title hands down!!
  • hillary!
  • Jimmy Carter and/or Franklin Pierce
  • Calvin Coolidge, he spent most of his presidency either in bed or in the tub. Bit if you are speaking in terms of accomplishments David Rice Atchison. he was only President for a day.
  • all of them
  • Obama.
  • LOL So many to choose from! Wilson allowed the FED to form, possibly the greatest tool for stealing value from the American People. Kennedy got us within minutes of WWIII. Carter allowed the economy to stagnate while simultaneously boosting inflation. That's a REAL magic trick! Bush II once referred to the US Constitution as 'that goddamned Constitution', and boosted our speed as we careen toward Authoritarianism. And Obama is accelerating that headlong rush even faster!
  • To answer those who keep claiming "Clinton left a surplus" he did not. --- 4,167,872,986,583.67 (Jan 1993) --- 5,706,174,969,873.86 (Jan 2000) -- http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/NPGateway If there was this huge surplus why did the national debt go up? By Roughly 1.6 Trillion
  • wow. this one is hard to answer, considering they were all so terrible ...
  • Since they all were politicians, they all were bad.
  • They've all had pretty terrible records in terms of acts of international aggression and terrorism. In recent years, Reagan probably did the most damage, although GWB gave him a run for his money.
  • GWB by far - his policies completely ignored the people of the US and served his own selfish needs.
  • George W Bush's foreign policies were a disaster. He didn't make any friends, anywhere around the world. When Barack Obama was elected there was a collective sigh of relief everywhere.
  • Considering how many dips have had their finger on "the button"- it'd have to be in order of uselessness: Bu$h jr, Reagan, Nixon, Bu$h Sr, Carter.
  • Hoover usually gets the blame for the Great Depression, and thus is on the bottom of most presidential lists. I think when the long lens of history has a chance to reflect, though, the dishonor will shift to George W. Bush. He came within a nats eyebrow of giving us depression #2. His sycophants claim he kept us safe, but the truth is he lost more Americans on his watch to terrorism than all the previous US presidents combined. He added more money to the US debt than all his predecessors combined. He presided over the failed response to Katrian. Instead of pacifying Afghanistan and getting Bin Laden, he launched an unnecessary and disastrous war in Iraq, and did so with a pack of lies and distortions about WMDs. His administration savaged the US Constitution and rule of law with torture, illegal wiretapping, suspension of habeas corpus, signing statements in place of law and refusals to submit to Congressional oversight or even answer subponeas.
