Top Ten Worst Presidents Ever!

Chin up, Mr. President Bush, sir! It's not all bad! OK, yes, 98 percent of historians think your presidency has been a failure, but that's just a silly survey. I found an amazing list of the Top Ten Worst Presidents, and you're not even on it!

There are a whole slew of scandals (Teapot Dome, Black Friday) an impeachment (nope, not him — think way back) a Great Depression even greater than the one we're hurtling into now, and a Folly! You haven't had an official folly yet! Get crackin'!

Here are the top (worst?) five from the hilarious and not historically unsound list of top ten worst:

  1. James Buchanan (oops Dred Scott...)
  2. Warren G. Harding (there's your Teapot Dome!)
  3. Franklin Pierce (Kansas-Nebraska Act?)
  4. Richard Nixon (Ohh, Watergate.)
  5. Andrew Johnson (And we have impeachment!)

So you see, Mr. President sir, there's a whole lot of history just as bad as what you're up against. But take a second to read the list, will you? There are quite a few months left of your big job! Let's learn and laugh together!

So. Do you think George W. Bush should have made that list?

G. W. is the worst. You could travel 100 years into the future and he will still be the worst. There should be certin qualifations to run for president. Brains, common sense, and most importantly admiting you were wrong( takes a real man to admit that. )He has none of those. I also feel that a son should be exculed from running for office( this president really realy makes me feel strongly about that rule)But everyone will just forget and son of another president will be elected somday. In closing Obamma could not be as bad as G.W. even if he tried. Good Riddence.

Don't forget Jimmy Carter! I remember as a boy how hard things were under Carter! We had high inflation and high unemployment! I remember my mom having to work in a mall kiosk while my dad who was a highly trained mechanic could not find a job because the economy was so bad! I remember how no one could buy a new car and when someone could do it it was like a holiday seeing a brand new car in the neighborhood! I remember eating cube steak and TV dinners every meal! This guy is a joke! He criticizes our election process but raves about Hugo Chavez and Palestinian terrorist organizations!

"I have to respond to something that Misskastar made concerning Bush & Katrina. I'm from Louisiana, and I can tell you that if anyone failed the citizens of New Orleans it was ex Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin. The state government took funds from the Feds that were intended for building up levies and wasted it on useless pet projects! That combined with the fact that they had no real evacuation plan helped to create the post-Katrina disaster. Everyone in Louisiana knows that the state government's corruption and ineptitude is the true source of the tragedy. The city's slow recovery is ultimately a result of years of a broken state government, a deteriorating infrastructure and a weak economy. Respectfully, anyone who blames Bush for all this is very misinformed"Thank you for this! I wish the media didn't try to circumvent reality. In the eyes of so many, BUSH made the Hurricaine!, he refused to send effective aid!, he was incompetent! It was his fault! But in reality, Katrina just revealed the inherent weaknesses of government bureaucracies like FEMA (A federal organization), and the Louisiana state government.

"98% of historians think your presidency is a failure"-politics isn't history for a least 20 years, and probably alot longer than that.-historians get their degrees in history, not in the immediate effects of Mr. Bush's two terms, why are their opinions even considered?-Historians are by profession, a liberal crowd, just open up any high school textbook and you'll see why the study/writing of history is far from objective. It involves quite a bit of opinion.

I'm both impressed and encouraged by the intelligence that has been shared in this blog. Every generation believes that the challenges they face are the worst the human race has ever experienced. That kind of thinking is a result of people who don't have any understanding of history. I have to respond to something that Misskastar made concerning Bush & Katrina.

I agree with the statement that the worst presidents should not include the last 5-8. Politics is still too big an issue. I acknowledge that W isn't the best president, but to call him the worst, or among the worst is idiotic.

"Gasoline prices in the United States, which have recently hit record highs, are actually much lower than in many countries. Drivers in some European cities, like Amsterdam and Oslo, are paying nearly 3 times more than those in the U.S."-CNNWhy? The government taxes Europeans much more than the American government.

OK, for the last frickin time, criticizing the President or the war does not equal criticizing the troops, personally or generally, so people with family in Iraq need to stop being so sensitive to critical discussion. People who criticize the war are largely criticizing the unnecessary endangerment of troops' lives, so if anything they are their BIGGEST supporters.I read some of these comments and I'm just appalled at how misinformed some people STILL are, five years later. Bush and Blair both thought they had sound evidence connecting 9/11 to Hussein? WTF? Ever heard of the Downing Street Memo? Maybe the Valerie Plame scandal? Bush and Cheney decided to fix "evidence" around policy, Blair knew that, and anyone who protested got screwed. That's not a democratic conspiracy theory, that's documented fact.As for the magic button of gas prices and domestic drilling -- it's too big of a topic to get into here, but anyone who thinks that the administration has no control over pump-gouging knows little about regulation, inflation, and our rapport with OPEC nations.

W is the worst for both parties, bc he's destroying the Constitution, the country's reputation, our privacy rights, checks and balances, and human rights.People who suggest JFK for this list don't know their history. He did a ton of wise and ethical things for this country, and as for getting into Vietnam -- he TRIED to bring the troops back and that's why the flipping CIA had him killed. Even people IN the CIA have said that.

Thank you Hunterme - you are absolutely right that our troops deserve support. And if someone thinks I was shrugging off a trillion dollar war - they couldn't be more wrong. I have family who fought there. I know what kind of pain this war has caused. But that doesn't diminish the good that can be accomplished by the sacrifice. People get so wrapped up in hating George W. Bush that they just don't see the big picture.
