Vote other. Carter is nowhere near on my list to worst. Hoover, Harding or one of the idiots that did nothing to stop the Civil War top my list. Honestly. Carter cannot even compare to those who let 500,000 Americans die because they lacked the courage to do what was necessary.Jimmy Carter - which I'm surprised is not on your list.
Great humanitarian - horrible, horrible POTUS.
I'm curious. What about Harding, that I said, do you disagree with?Aside from the Harding issue, I agree. I feel that historical presidents are far worse then contemporary ones. Maybe people have short memories? Honestly, nothing any recent president has done comes close to letting the Civil War happen IMO.
Half a million Americans dead. And you refused to do what was necessary to stop it. No contemporary president can top that.
Pierce was certainly in the bottom 5, and the signing of the Kansas-Nebraska Act... repealing the Missouri Compromise which pretty much made the Civil War, imminent was a pretty bad decision, but it was on Buchanan's watch that the US "dissolved" and he did nothing to try to stop it.Pierce for doing absolutely nothing to help save the union.
And setting the state for the Civil War.
Abe's job was to protect the union wasn't it?Abe Lincoln
Suspended Habeas Corpus
Allowed Union troops to commit war crimes
National take over of private industry
600,000 plus killed
Abe said: "if I could save the union without freeing a single slave I would do it. If I could save the union by freeing all the slaves I would do it. If I could save the union by freeing some and leaving others enslaved I would do that"
Abraham Lincoln Quote
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”
(1809-1865) 16th US President
Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858
(The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-146.)
From what I understand, the Civil War was pretty inevitable. The South just would not give up their economy and culture based around slavery, and slavery was not an issue that the President had much control over. Remember - Lincoln penned and signed the Emancipation Proclamation, yes, but that only pertained to the slave states that seceded, which he did via executive order as Commander-in-Chief of the military. However, Lincoln did not free the slaves in the Union - that still required legislation from Congress. That came about in the form of the 13th Amendment, which was written by Congress and sent to the state legislatures for approval, which they granted.Vote other.

You're either being intellectually dishonest or have very limited understanding of the policies of his predecessor.Obama has been the worst. No other president has risen our debt so high in such a short time.
They have and will.His policies have repeatedly failed, and his lies outnumber the truths. I remember how he said his bill would reduce health insurance costs,
Far-right dishonest talking point.I remember how the stimulus was supposed to boost jobs and keep the unemployment level below 8%.
More far-right radio regurgitation...The debt is too high, Obama is spending like a teenage girl with daddy's credit card, and his policies are failing. I don't really know of any good policies he has passed.
Prove me wrong.You're either being intellectually dishonest or have very limited understanding of the policies of his predecessor.
They have not, and the opposite is true. Insurance companies are raising costs, and many small businesses and employers can't afford to cover their employees. How Obama Health Care Bill Hurts Small Business | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.They have and will.
No, it's Obama's dishonest rhetoric. PolitiFact | Will: Obama said stimulus would cap unemployment at 8 percent Obama lied and used dishonest figures when pushing his stimulus bill. The data he provided said unemployment wouldn't rise above 8%.Far-right dishonest talking point.
I am not on the far right. Are you willfully ignorant of the facts? Obama has spent drastically more than other presidents. Above, I have provided proof to each one of my claims.More far-right radio regurgitation...
Do you guys on the far-right ever have an original thought?
It looks to me like maybe people without accounts are voting multiple times?How are the hyper-partisan hackies voting more than once? Do they all have multiple accounts?
