Worst president of all time


There have been a lot of bad ones and a lot of good ones, who gets the prize for worst.

Note: There area forty four and I can only post forty, so I won't put on any of the presidents on Mt. Rushmore

Delete, I think you are setting up a poll now perhaps.

Grover Cleveland is counted twice, as #22 and #24, so there are really only 43.

Obama is the 44th President of the USA. but Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th President. since he served non-consecutive terms. Therefore, 43 men have served as President, not 44.

I'd advise that you don't post anyone after 1990, as that is after Historum's cut-off point for history, and you'll risk having the thread closed as contemporary politics.

I fear that many people are going to vote the ones freshest on our minds, like I did. Honestly, I think that Andrew Johnson would give any bad president a run for his money.

You could ask a moderator to do it. Just PM one of them.
