    Worst US President?

    We have a poll for the best, which has mostly devolved into a thread about the worst president anyway.

    My personal choice is Andrew Johnson, who massively screwed up Reconstruction and whose effects were worse than some other incompetent presidents around the time.

    Options chosen from those who are traditionally seen as the worst presidents, along with some names mentioned by DP members in the other thread.

    Re: Worst US President?

    Eh, I'm no history buff so I'm left with those presidents in my lifetime. It's almost a tossup between Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush, but since Bush had twice as long to **** things up and got us into two decades-long wars, George W. has my vote.

    I voted for Grant, though Taft had a pretty ****ty presidency as well. I don't even know why Bush or Obama are there. They pale in comparison to the worst of the worst, and neither one was/is really that bad.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    some have argued that if Carter had squashed the violation of our sovereignty we'd have far less cockroaches pissing on our boots over there now

    I completely agree, but in every thread there are people who want to vote for them, so I figured I'd put them as options.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    He was a complete pussy. And that was his best quality. That's why he's on my short list.

    James Buchanan.

    The mess that George W. left for Obama? Magnify that times about a hundred, and that's what Buchanan did to Lincoln.

    LOL I was just about to set this up. I agree, Johnson was the worst.
