They really should structure this so that people could “pick 3” or something. As it is, Bush leads in the “worst” category, Obama is a pretty close second, and very very few people have noted that Jimmy Carter was also a terrible failure. With multiple choices, you could make a broader statement about what kind of president hurts the country. With one choice, Carter gets off scot free.

Ha. “Historians” vote W the 5th worst of all time. Get real. Damned liberal professors.

The comfort here is that 20 years from now they will have a new Republican to vilify and Bush will be forgotten by them.

Anyone who votes a recent or current President as worst ever is simply being a kneejerk. Although Obama has huge potential still he hasn’t come near bringing about the disasters for this country that Woodrow Wilson and LBJ did. And Dubya? Not even close, though definitely in the bottom 1/2. Anyone who thinks he was the worst President in history is a fool. If Zero is dumped in 2012 then he may not end up the worst in history. LBJ and WW will still be on the absolute bottom. That’s why these lists show leave a current or even recent President off. There’s still too much passion involved for an even partially objective measure.

Obama is just over half way through his term. Imagine what more he can do in the next two years.

You are correct. It takes at least five years and probably more like ten to even begin to evaluate a president's legacy.

We do, however, have some fair indicators where ObaMao is going.

He is divisive as James Buchanan on domestic policies.

He is as naive and incompetent (or worse) than Jimmy Carter on foreign policy.

He is worse than FDR in arrogance.

And more thuggish than LBJ.

Look at the criteria they are using to determine the worst POTUS (of course they had to include GWB in there):

“The historians scored the presidents in 20 categories ranging from “relationship with Congress” and “foreign policy accomplishments” to “communication ability” and “imagination.” When the scores were added up, these 10 had the lowest totals”

Really? What about keeping our country safe, keeping us out of massive debt, maintaining a low level of unemployment, abiding by the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was found?

What Republican could possibly have a good “relationship with Congress” with Pelosi and Reid running things? And who cares if someone is a great communicator if all they do is lie anyway? And “imagination”? This is NOT a quality we need in a POTUS; instead, we need pragmatism.

Another useless study.

Buchanan, Grant, Harding, Hoover, LBJ, Carter, Obama

Harding I can see making that list but Hoover? Sure, he had some undeniable streaks of RINO in him, but he did believe that the government shouldn't hamper business. I think that if FDR hadn't been elected, the economic recovery would have happened in due time.

The all time worst? Without a doubt that's Franklin Diablo Roosevelt, a Socialist to the nth degree. So much of what's wrong with America today is directly attributable to this utterly evil, mendacious man. The line from FDR to BHO is absolutely clear. The stench of sulfur permeates both of these truly wicked men.

My candidate for the all-time best president was also a favorite of Ronald Reagan: Calvin Coolidge. His small government, pro-business stance is evident in this classic speech from Coolidge.

if those who hate America and what it stands for left then this country would be so much better .

I saw earlier where a group of muslims in CA at a campus did not let the Israeli ambassador speak.
When M Kelly had a professor on defending these muslims all the professor could say was that it is their first amendment right, OK but what about the Israeli.

Then it comes out, these muslims have been doing this for years and have shouted anti American slogans etc then add the idiotic far left fools who shout the same.

Now imagine if all of them left and only good patriotic hard working men and women stayed. This country would be so much better off

This is not statement against immigration but
I say this as someone who did come here from England and who read the constitution, how America was founded why it was etc and have the most up most respect for my new country and yes I am proud to be an American.

If these anti American fools do not like it and want an islamic/left wing loon country then let them leave, hell I’ll even chip in for their airfare.

where is this rag located?

Allentown, Pennsylvania, which does not have RIGHT TO WORK. As a result, I'd surmise that the Lehigh Valley is overpopulated with angry, out-of-work leftists whose unions killed any chance of industry thriving there. The bitter anti-business local residents from Allentown and Bethlehem are probably voting early and often in the poll.

“but he did believe that the government shouldn’t hamper business”

Really? Where’s the evidence for that? He was the first chief executive to treat economic downturn as a national emergency akin to war. FDR followed his playbook.

“The all time worst? Without a doubt that’s Franklin Diablo Roosevelt”

Yes, I admit, I fell into the trap of judging presidents by a sort of Might Makes Right standard. FDR was practically successful, as he was able to placate the public, win frequent reelection, reorient not only his own party but the entire federal government for more than 40 years toward his ideology, and trick the history books into telling it his way. The reason I list Hoover, then, and not FDR, is that people saw through Hoover. He was never so powerful, and failed at the ballot box and in the history books.

This is not the best way to judge politicians, in my opinion. For sometimes their success is the country/world/freedom’s loss. Judged by the criteria of freedom, limited government, constitutionality, etc., he was an abysmal failure. Similar things can be said about the apparent success of Jefferson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Wilson.

I’m right there with you. What history did to that man, as well as his Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, is unforgivable.

I also highly recommend the all but forgotten Grover Cleveland.

The astounding thing to me is the widespread notion that George Bush was the “worst president ever.”

What on God’s green earth did he do to justify that judgment?

Was it increasing the budget of the IRS? Appointing flaming queens as US Ambassadors? Fighting evil in Iraq and Afghanistan? Refusing to purge government agencies of Klintonistas? Signing bills that increased spending and taxes? Firing only seven or eight US Attorneys late in his administration when Beelzebubba fired them *all* first thing on day one?

What did he do that limp-wristed, one-worlder, gun-fearing, pansy-assed, chicken-choking, globalist, metrosexual, Twinkie-addled, Starbucks-sipping, Dixie-Chicks-admiring, godless, pierced-nose, Volvo-driving, America-hating, France-loving, tofu-chomping, pickle-smooching, neo-Nazi pedophile vegan weenie perverts would hate him?

What fevered lunacy, what opium dreams, what deranged imaginings won him such malicious loathing from the lamestream misleadia, Dembicile simps, and other crystal-crunching nutjobs?

To rip off Churchill, never have so many hated so few for nothing at all.
