    Seriously though, probably Woody. Alien and Espionage Act, Interventionism in Latin America, Federal Reserve, Treaty of Versailles where he threw away a lot of what probably would have reduced international wars for an toothless League of Nations, Prohibition, increasing racial segregation in the government. No matter what your ideology is, this guy has probably done something to piss you off.

    Obama is very tame compared to many past Presidents... it is just the Hate Bandwagon that can't see past their own hand. Hating the present is so much easier than studying and hating the past. Groovy too, you can bitch about it and it plays like a NBA game.

    I have studied American history from January 20, 2009-present.
    Of all the presidents in the time frame, he is clearly the best worst.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I agree that Truman was a good President and maybe one of the most honest down to earth people to ever in the White House, not counting Washington, Jefferson, Adams and Lincioln and a couple others.

    Teddy Roosevelt was a good Rough Rider and one of the first Environmentalists of note. However his politics were Progressive and therefore not in the best interest of the Nation.

    One of the worst ever turned out to be Richard Nixon who got caught at things I think many in that office do with dirty tricks.


    To be perfectly Frank it is no surprise that the leader of the "Trifecta of Doom," Obama is the hands down winner of the this poll he's been anti-American in most of his actions but always talks a good game.

    Obama has a bunch of Radicals in his cabal that do his bidding including Unions, ACORN, and the Obamedia propagandists on TV, Radio, and papers.

    As to womanizers J.F.K. springs to mind, as does L.B.J.

    Before becoming President Dwight Eisenhower allegedly began an affair with his very attractive British driver, Kay Summersby, but after that nothing ever came up and he was a very good President.

    THOMAS JEFFERSON: Is believed Jefferson secretly father children by slave Sally Hemings.

    GROVER CLEVELAND: Ten years before Cleveland's presidency, store clerk Maria Halpin named him as the father of her illegitimate son.

    WARREN HARDING: Harding got around. One mistress, Carrie Phillips, took $20,000 in hush money from the GOP while Harding ran for president. Another, Nan Britton, bore Harding's child in 1919 while he was a senator. After Harding became president he continued to 'entertain' Britton, sometimes in a small anteroom just off the Oval Office. Clinton style.

    FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT: FDR's affair with Lucy Mercer was discovered by his wife Eleanor in 1918. Over and above him being a Progressive who was so much dislike for some of his actions prompted the Constitutional limits the office to, two terms.

    BILL CLINTON Had a rather one sided tryst with Monica Lewinsky that he tried desperately to keep in the closet. lol. And there was of course the story I happen to believe about Paula Jones, who was suing Clinton for sexual harassment.

    its too early to declare Obama the worst
    but his first two years are the worst I have seen in three decades though Carter was close. Obama might have some accomplishments though-so I wouldn't rate him the worst

    Probably nobody cares about this but me, but Harry S Truman was a Master Mason and was at one time the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Missouri. Evidently he still participated in lodge functions while president as well. All of his Secret Service agents were Master Masons and he would go to nearby lodges from time to time to participate in the raising of other Master Masons. That would have been fun to have been a part of!

    Good God, GWB speeches alone rank him as the worst ****ing president ever. That and getting thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis dead. There are tens of thousands of damaged American veterans who owe this jackass a special debt. That and overseeing the melt down of capitalism as we know it. That and being the biggest goddamn moron on the ****ing planet.

    I'm amusing for thinking GWB is the worst president in American history? You're amusing for being the most forgetful person I don't care to know.

    Fun fact for today!
    Wrong!

    Ford was Minority Leader, not Speaker.

    Unbelievable.

    Bush couldn't put a coherent sentence together.
    Bush didn't know the difference between tactics and strategy.

    Bush made the most telling statements of any president, and yet the middle-class Republicans weren't able to pick up that they were just his pawns.




    Bush lied and got us into an unnecessary war, over 4000 Americans were killed and as many wounded.
    Anyone who thinks Bush wasn't the worst president is just in denial.

    The part about exclusion due to ignorance and not being ready for the job. I don't think that should exclude him from being in the running.

    Non-logged in voting. Happens. It would be interesting to see if the IP of the guest voters matches a user here.
