    10 Worst Presidents

    US News: 10 Worst Presidents

    Source: US News & World Report (2-19-07)

    It's too soon to judge the current one, but for past presidents, the verdict is in. U.S. News has averaged the results of five presidential polls to make a gallery of the worst chief executives. The years before the Civil War produced an era of failure: Six of seven presidents who served from 1841 to 1861 made the list.

    Buchanan
    Harding
    A. Johnson
    Pierce
    Fillmore
    Tyler
    Grant
    Wm. Henry Harrison
    Hoover
    Nixon
    Taylor

    What about Roosevelt, Bush Sr./Jr., LBJ, JFK, Clinton, Wilson, or even Eisenhower ...?

    Re: 10 Worst Presidents

    Sadly shows the statist mindset of current day voters. The supposedly "bad Presidents" are the ones who cut income tax after war, balanced the books, pursued fairly non-interventionist foreign policies.

    American Presidents should not be venerated for their "greatness", they should be respected if at all, by judging their respect for the Constitutional limits upon their office.

    My three worst Presidents would be Lincoln, FDR and Bush Jnr. Most of them have been bad.

    Let's not forget, even George Washington violently forced Americans to pay the whiskey tax.

    The years before the Civil War produced an era of failures: Six of the seven Presidents who served from 1841 to 1861 made the list.
    To be fair, William Henry Harrison died a month after taking office. The other presidents had to deal with divisions over slavery & tariff policy. The fact that they didn't overstep their authority & manage to keep the Union together under difficult cicumstances sholud be seen as an accomplishment. Abraham Lincoln's election finally caused the Union to come apart. Lincoln lead us into a civil war that killed 600,000 & radically changed our form of governance, but is considered one of our greatest presidents.

    Re: 10 Worst Presidents

    I personally don't think its worth much time to rank the worst Presidents of the United States anymore. I just find it depressing because I have been getting the gut feeling that our Republic is so *#@%ed that each new president that is elected over the course of the next generation will probably be worse than most of anybody's list of 10 worst out of the 43 we have had to the present day. Its all been going down hill for a while now. If we were able to have one of those ten from the 19th century travel through time to be President today, they would be magnitudes better than any of what gets elected to office now.

    Re: 10 Worst Presidents

    I am only going to comment upon Presidents I remember. I CAN remember Truman, so I will start there.

    Worst at the Top

    Bush, G. W.
    Carter
    Johnson
    Truman
    Bush, G. H.
    Kennedy
    Eisenhower
    Nixon
    Reagen

    Yes, already George Bush is at the top of the list. Carter's economic policy was a total disaster. Johnson bungled us into Viet Nam but he had help from Kennedy. Truman was almost as stupid as G.W. Bush in foreign policy and as bad as Carter in economics. George Herbert Walker Bush led us down the mountain Reagen had built. Kennedy was fine but short lived. Eisenhower does not get credit for building the USA into the world power it became. Nixon got us out of Viet Nam and normalized relations with China. Reagen ended the Cold War without firing a shot (true, he had help from Gorbechev).

    OK, I'll add two more from history. Abraham Lincoln (bad) Lincoln was warned by several Southern states that if he ran for President and was elected, they would ceced from the Union. Lincoln put personal ambition ahead of what was best for the country. He ran, was elected and presided over the destruction of the USA. He never cared for Negroes any more than I do and only released them from slavery as a calculated ploy to hurt the South during the war.

    Andrew Jackson (Good) Jackson beat the British at New Orleans during the War of 1812 and as President and broke up the Central Bank which was the Federal Reserve Bank of those times. Jackson was a populist and did the right thing for the average American, not special interests.

    Where is Clinton on your list? You do remember Clinton or were you in a coma during the 90s?

    Does Pat Buchanan run for the next govermental elections? He is the only US politician I know who would be quite good.

    Last time he ran he picked a black woman as his VP.

    There is no worst president then President Bushowitz, he is a Zionist puppet who sent thousands of Americans to die for Israel, and I believe that he, the VP etc, along with the Zionists in his administration, Wolfowitz, Perle and the Government of Israel planned the 9/11 attack on America, and all those involved should be tried for treason, and they should all get the same faith as Sadaam.

    Buchanan isn't running. He did pick a negress to be his running mate in 2000 (Reform Party), but he had no chance of winning. I believe he ran to try to focus attention on immigration issues but it didn't do him any good. Usually, presidential candidates avoid discussing immigration, but this election cycle the Republicans will have to face up to it.
