In my opinion the worst presidents in history, were the current George W. Bush, George Bush Sr, Jimmy Carter, and Herbert Hoover.


George W. Bush is the first President to start a totally unprovoked war and lie like Satan to get support for the war. Bush's policies are aggression and terror based, and his financial policies are against the American People.

George Bush is the first President that didn't give a f_ck about the nation he served.

George W. Bush: stupid to assume anything with out the benefit of retrospect.

George Bush Sr.: Again, little retrospect.

Jimmy Carter: Camp David accords.

Herbert Hoover: Largely a victim of circumstance, the Depression was long in coming before Hoover was president.

I think it is impossible to tell how you would rate Presidents before the 20th century. As for me though, the three worst Presidents were 1.) Warren Harding, 2.) Little George Bush, 3.) Lyndon Johnson. The reason for Harding being number one was that he was perhaps the most corrupt and his isolationist policies lead to the Depression I think. Little George Bush is second most corrupt and his little wars have gotten us entangled. I also think he is overseeing the merging of business and government in a neo-fascist state. Lyndon Johnson was third because he created the most screwed up socialized system in history.

Lyndon Johnson was third because he created the most screwed up socialized system in history.
Johnson's 'Great Society' visions were askew but not the most screwed up system in history. It implemented the Civil Rights Act, Medicare, domestic reform of education, housing and welfare. Loopholes abound and these had their share. Also, these were things in discussions during Kennedy's term-as liberals go, Johnson as a VP was relatively conservative and was chosen as VP to counter Kennedy's liberal views, Catholic upbringing and sway the southern vote. Johnson's downfall was not his social reforms-it was southeast asia-something Eisenhower got us into, Kennedy increased our presence and Johnson saw no way out and instead, furthered our involvement thinking erroneously it would end the conflict sooner. Once he saw the error, he 'abdicated'-choosing not to run again and serve out his term as quietly as possible(which turned out not so quietly). The nation as a whole experienced good prosperity under his term, but was becoming disillusioned as the war in Vietnam escalated. Prosperity wasn't enough though and Johnson saw no easy way out of Vietnam-something he deeply regretted the rest of his life, even with his successes with Civil Rights.
When researching 'worst of' lists, it's interesting to note that many presidents who actually implemented good programs were making these lists based on their persona and the mistakes made while 'best of' lists use persona and forego the mistakes. Kennedy almost got us blown to bits! During his term, the mafia thrived. He plunged us further into the illegal war in Vietnam. But he makes almost every best president list you can find, based on charm, charisma and the economic good times we were experiencing-nothing having to do with his policies or solid achievements(unless you call the President's Council on Physical Fitness and the Peace Corps solid achievements)

Like saddam was totally just chillin in Iraq minding his own business when we totally like flew in there and bombed a bunch of nursery schools. Bush like totally hates Iraqi babies. Saddam is like totally peaceful and muslim and stuff.

What? Saddam invaded Kuwait and stole every car off the streets and robbed all the banks? No dude. That was like totally a conservative LIE man.

What? Saddam threw men into wood choppers in front of their families? No way dude. Saddam is like a super nice old guy. Just like Stalin. Totally harmless dude. Another conservative lie.

What? Saddam's son Uday kidnapped a college girl off the street, shot her boyfriend in the face, raped her for a week, then covered her in honey and fed her to his dogs? Laughing while they tore her apart? No way man. Saddam is like totally a good father and would never let his kids do that.

Yeah man Bush is a facist man. He is worse than HITLER man. He totally invaded iraq for no reason at all just for the oil.

Wait hold on... I have to go. My mom is yelling at me again to get back to my homework.

But in seriousness, a guy whos name on a POLITICAL forum is "dragonslayer" shouldn't be taken seriously.

People that live in D&D fantasy land don't always have the best political opinions. Emphasis on the word fantasy.

I hope this will enrage the liberals. Hahaha. I'm just joking, I'm not sure who the worst President was.
Clinton was too impotent (no pun intended) to be the worst president in history. The conservative congress at that time prevented him from passing his communist wife's insane proposals.

Too late for that. She's going to be the next President of the United States.

Although I had issues with him too, Bush's father was a better President.

what exactly was that reason? (that he invaded iraq?)

According to his press secretary and himself it was originally to;

"prevent the mushroom cloud" (woops.... you mean the fission bombs that we have stockpiled over the years?)

Then it was to;

"liberate the iraquis" (woops.... you mean the people that we have basically denied any form of civil rights, independent or 'free' thought, basic logistics (such as water and electricity), and implanted false media?) Perhaps they should be just like us here and have to pay uncle sam to breath the polluted air and sacrifice their dreams and hopes at the will of elite corporations and militant industries.

Now it is only to;

"relentlessly agree with the Bush Administration (pnac) and to be a good blind American and never doubt the intelligence of the Bush administration nor their subservient followers" A league of Sycophants. Toads. People who haven't the faintest clue of what the words liberty or justice mean.

Bush - Owned by the House of Saud, utter mismanagement of the war on terror, borrow and spend nightmare of a budget killer, right wing Christian stooge, assaulting the 4th amendment, etc.

Nixon- Assaulting the constitution in many ways, broke the bonds of trust between government and governed in a way that has gotten worse rather than gotten better.

Reagan - Sold arms to terrorists, exiled our children's future to the phantom zone of unimaginable debt, ignored the AIDS epidemic for years till it killed a friend of his, was the first of the GOP line that has created the current GOP Noise machine that relies utterly on disinformation and libel/slander. Hugely corrupt administration.

Harding - Almost as corrupt as Regan and the current Bush.

Filmore - his bumbling made the civil war inevitable and destroyed what had been the most powerful party in the US at the time.

Yes, all of these men were horrible Presidents except Reagan, though himself was only mediocre.
