Jefferson Davis. He led his country to total defeat.
My Pal Cal is in the top 5.
Since the idiot sockpuppet living in our White House is not Constitutionally qualified to hold the office of president, I can’t even put him on the list. Probably would put Carter, one of our first openly anti-Semitic and anti-American presidents.
and he hasn’t done all his damage yet.
Cal is awesome. :)
Even Bush, with Michael Moore and the entire left-wing news media establishment screeching about Iraq, won more of the popular vote in 2004 than he did in 2000. Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and even Richard Nixon improved their standing in the popular vote from one election to the next.
In my lifetime, the only incumbent who ever declined in his percentage of the popular vote, while still managing to scrape out a win, was Barack Obama.
Woodrow Wilson who set the country on a path of socialism and central government control.
worst and last president before presidential elections were abolished
They all stunk.
Each President has left office with a bigger federal government than he began with.
Worst president ever...
Is that limited to US presidents?
If not then I’m torn between Obama and Idi Amin Dada for worst president ever.
Sadly in my life I have seen a more terrible presidents then any other generation. Starting with LBJ, then Nixon, then Jimmy, then Bush and then Obama. The worst of the above has to be LBJ after that it’s a tie. I’d put Clinton in there too (Kosovo, China), but Clinton let Newt save his presidency domestically.
Hate to disagree with Medved’s assessments in many places.
Lincoln is overrated and possibly the worst in terms of carnage and tossing out principles of our government.
Certainly FDR is 1 of the worst, as are Wilson and Teddy.
Sometimes the best presidents are those you DON’T hear about, more obscure. They are more likely to have done as little as a hands-off government probably should do.
I prefer to judge them based on the amount of damage they did (or did not do) to the country and their fealty to the idea of limited government. Thus, the worst: Wilson, FDR, Lincoln, Obama, LBJ, TR, Hoover.
In my lifetime it is Carter and Obama. The sad thing is that we re-elected an epic fail. Cleaning up the mess of a bad president takes a long time; for example, we are still cleaning the mess that Carter left.
(every 20th century Democrat - Truman- JFK) + Obama + Jackson
In order, worst to bad:
His voter base doesn't care about jobs! They only want another hand-out!
Obama is the worst POTUS ever...to those who love America!
Buchanan did nothing with the country rushing to Civil War.
