The Top Ten

Barack Obama
Where to begin? 1) No experience and it shows. 2) Considered a weakling by EVERY foreign leader, friend or foe. 3) His "recovery" was worse that the Bush "recession" and why? - more unemployed now than under Bush, and considerably more poverty than in the GREAT DEPRESSION! 4) Rammed through the stupidly named "Affordable Care Act" that simply won't work and will probably be the final nail in the US Economy. 5) Acts like Benghazi never happened despite the fact that the sole remaining err, "Super Power" just got it's foreign mission in Libya destroyed with 4 dead Americans, but hey, who's counting? And to boot, did nothing about it. Oh, did I mention he was hurrying to a Las Vegas Fund Raiser during this fiasco? 6) Hides and protects his equally IQ-Free Attorney General after the Benghazi disaster during Congressional hearings while putting an Executive Gag order on all documents, memoranda and E mail transmissions. 7) Railed against Bush as a then Candidate in 2008 about the loss of our moral compass via torturing suspects. Yeah, that was nasty wasn't it? Then proceeds to become the Drone-meister-in-chief slaughtering thousands BEFORE capture; that is to say-BEFORE getting any valuable intel from them. I guess this is why they gave him the Nobel PEACE Prize or as I now laughingly call it: The Jack-the-Box, Money for nothing' and yer Presidency for Free Prize. 8) Authorized the NSA to basically mind rape the entire country -and that is a fair interpretation of what those spooks are doing - via reading every E mail, listening to every phone call, etc. 9) On top of all of that, he remains a brazen, narcissistic, ego-maniac, out of touch, imperious RULER from on high who actually, for-real, thinks he's the greatest thing since Lincoln.
Yes my friends, we have here the Blue Ribbon, Gold Medal winner of the single biggest Presidential election BUST of All time. And let's not forget he's finally replaced JFK as also the #1 most Overrated President of all time. And he's still got the bulk of his second term to go. God help us.
Seriously, as a citizen who has no hand in doing anything to change the country for the better, what gives you the right to judge him. You would be a miserable and crude president. You couldn't handle the title, let alone the responsibility. As a lower level being, you're just jealous that he is where you will never be. Revel in your minute status. While you degrade him, you will never be able to say that you were a president of a great nation. It just kills you, and that's why you berate him.
Obama signed the NDAA into law- one of the most dangerous laws ever created in the history of the USA! The NDAA effectively shredded our Bill of Rights! He has a kill list and has murdered innocent men, women, and CHILDREN around the world! He circumvents Congress and the Constitution by use /abuse of executive orders! YEP- I'd say puts him in the top ten, but since he now has more power than any POTUS has ever known AND has used it to dismantle our Republic and take our liberty then that to me makes him the #1 WORST POTUS - so far! Oh yeah, let's not forget that now federal government now has control over our health and bodies through "Obamacare. " And GONE is all privacy between patient and doctor-or all privacy for that matter! I can't think of anything scarier than that! More loss of privacy and freedom has happened under Obama than any other POTUS! It has now become very dangerous to live in the USA! Oh yeah, and the continued bailouts and out of control government spending-more debt accumulated faster under Obama than any other POTUS! AND still no budget after four years! The fed. Continues over-printing the funny money and the extortion of the American people through the (euphemism for this extortion) "quantitative easing! " Total failed economic policy! And he is a war monger! (Who received a Noble PEACE PRIZE? How ridiculous is THAT! Elections have just degraded to celebrity popularity contests between puppets! )
What has he done? NOTHING! He seems to want to plunge us deeper in debt. It's sad we even consider him for re-election.
Wow, he actually got us out of debt. What are you talking about? It's either Bush or Hoover as the worst presidents of all time! Get Obama off this list!
[Newest]He let Ebola into the United States... he is helping Iran get nuclear weapons... and worst of all, he allowed the implement of Common Core!

2George W. Bush
Bush II is the worse president in my lifetime by far (I am 63). One of his first acts was to transform a budget surplus created under Clinton to a huge and ever growing budget deficit by cutting taxes on the rich and invading two countries. Has any US president increased spending like Bush II and cut taxes at the same time? Don't ever be fooled by the neo-cons name... They are anything but conservatives... They are merely shills for the wealthy and powerful. Bush II also engaged in social engineering. Basically except for the medicare reforms for prescription drugs I think Bush II was basically wrong about every major issue. For example, look at Bush II's invasion of Iraq. First he lied to the American people to obtain support for the invasion. Instead of assembling a multinational coalition of nations like his father did in the first gulf war Bush II invaded with only some weak support from nations he was able to strong arm. The invasion itself was executed poorly... How could they invade without a clear plan on what to do after the conquest of Iraq. It appeared as though no thought was given to how to govern the country after its inevitable conquest. Also, after 9/11 he did nothing to investigate the lax actions of our military during the attacks. The Air Force, the branch of the military most likely able to repel the attacks of 9/11 were totally caught off-guard by the attacks and were not in any position to defend the nation from these attacks despite billions of dollars in taxpayer money paid to create what we were all told was the greatest air force in the world. Bush II was a total disaster as a president.
George W. Bush was a complete disaster and the worst president this country has ever had. He was an embarrassment and a mistake that never should have happened. We'll be decades trying to repair the damage this man caused our great country. He pushed our economy into an oligarchy, he destroyed our freedoms by trying to turn us into a third-world theocratic state, he destabilized the Middle East, was far too careless with the lives of our troops and with our nation's finances, and ruined our reputation abroad. Plus, he was horrible for our national unity. The hatred Americans feel for each other was stirred up to a fever pitch by Bush's policies. I believe Bush may have been well-meaning in some areas, but he had incredibly faulty judgement and the worst leadership skills of any president in memory. He never seemed to be in charge and let Cheney get away with all sorts of corruption.

The only thing that George W. Bush achieved was to make his father look like he had a stellar legacy in comparison. George H.W. Bush was far from a great president, but he was at least a competent one, and he's been a very good ex-president. His son hasn't even stepped up to the plate in that regard. I hope no one will ever come close to being as horrible a president as "Dubya" was.
Obama number one?! Please! Get your facts right. He's a darn good president. He had to clean up after the worst president ever- George bush jr. What did he do for the country? Nothing! He is responsible for a war that should not have happened. Gas was up to 5.00 a gallon or more. Then bush gives us a joke of a tax check then bails out Wall Street pure corruption. What about Cheney making war profits from Iraq? And bush? Bush is a money hungry cold hearted jerk that can't even speak right. His book decision points about made me puke. That idiot didn't write that book. And where is he now? Hiding in his ranch. He should be deported with Cheney. War criminals. I could go on and on Making fun of Obama for winning the peace prize is a ridiculous. He deserved that award and then he donated ALL the money to charity. Would bush do that? No! He couldn't even manage the Texas rangers and you idiots voted for him. A crook and a killer
Truly His hands were tied. IN our opinion He Is The Best President too Represent the People. ,And We truly Love and Honor His Service To the People Of America. , And We Honor His Accomplishments In Foreign Policies. ,WE Honor Him As The Man Given To Us. , Able And Well Prepared for battle.
[Newest]This knot head in my thoughts should be number 1, he is like a banty roster always need to make-up for his short comings. He said as long as he was in office there was going to be war, and in his war all suffered. A reporter once ask him if he was a tree what would he be? Answer:I would not be a tree, just a bush.

3Jimmy Carter
Jimmy Carter is the WORST PRESIDENT EVER! Here are my top 3 worst.

1. Jimmy Carter- not a leader, raised the gas taxes, and did nothing. (he is worse than obama and jackson which I both hate)

2. Barack Obama- hey, you are leading our country EXTREMELY BADLY. DID NOTHING GOOD.

3. Andrew Jackson- a jerk and loser, a MEAN GUY. I know what you say, what am I thinking. well think about this, if you were a native American and a loser like a puny andrew jackson saying you have to go to Indian territory (aka Oklahoma) which was called the Indian removal act. HE COULD HAVE RECEIVED MORE LAND LIKE JEFFERSON WITH HIS Louisiana PURCHASE, a HUGE SUCCESS BY THE WAY. instead, he behaves like a jerk and is a bully to the native Americans

If you don't like this, JUST don't PUt THUMBS DOWN, ok
Jimmy and Obama, one and the same
This guy hates America cause he didn't get re elected. He should just fade away back from where he crawled out of and never be seen or heard of ever again. A total loser he really brought the country down. I would laugh if it were not so horrible his time in office. Hell his brother Billy couldn't have done much worse.
[Newest]Peanut farmer and no more!

4Richard Nixon
Get your facts straight. Nixon was not impeached. He resigned when Congress was preparing to impeach him. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached.
He was half and half. Great in foreign policies and installed the Clean Air Act. If he wasn't so paranoid and ended the Democrat's mess of Vietnam, he would have been regarded as a far better president.
That was actually both the Democrat's AND the Republican's plan. No wonder so many hippies were Independent.
So my grandpa was a good friend of his but seriously rigging an election that you are winning and doing in the night in a building that has like 1 million security guards and using bright flash lights wow what a dumb thing to do


[Newest]I'm no crook, was what he always said, check history and that is all I need to say, he is pushing the number 1 spot.

5James Buchanan
Bush was an idiot but seriously? This guy basically caused the civil war
Anyone who thinks Obama is the worst president is obviously bias for several reasons, but the most obvious reason is that he is the current president and since Nixon time it has been cool to hate on the modern president. I don't think he is a great president but at least he didn't let the nation literally fall apart under him. Enter James Buchanan who pretty much basically let slavery spread and did nothing to prevent the Confederacy from forming. It is lucky that we had Lincoln afterward or else the United States wouldn't be the same.
He's universally accepted as the worst president the country has ever had. End of story


[Newest]Worst president ever end of story

6Lyndon Johnson
Why this President isn't number one is beyond me. He didn't lead anything. The CIA is the one who pulled his strings. In fact if Kennedy wasn't killed, he would have been the first Vice President in history to go to Jail just like his grandmother said would happen. He was saved by the CIA who he then owed everything to and let them lead the country for those four years that put this country in the dept that we are in today. He was the one who started it all. In fact, we would have been dept free if Kennedy's plan would have stayed in place. By Johnson not being number one, shows me that the American public doesn't know exactly what this man has done in the history of our country which is a shame.
A cowboy who sent thousands of young america to die in Vietnam because he couldn't keep his ego and pride in check. To loose kennedy and get shacked up with this man is perhaps the worst political event that has ever taken place within america.
Do we know who was the master mind behind JFK's assassination. Was JFK's death the only way this guy could avoid going to jail? Why did so many people who knew a lot of inside information get mysteriously killed? Shouldn't this guy be on top of the list?

7Andrew Johnson
I think Johnson Should be number 1 or at least in the top 3. He ruined everything Lincoln worked for, and set back Black rights for years. I'm even disgusted that there is an elementary school in my Town that's for named after him. Obama might b the most hated on president but I honestly think that he wouldn't have stood a chance even if he Was the best president that Walked This earth. Majority wasn't Happy that there Was a black Man in office. I'm a white woman who Lives in the south, and As soon as he was Elected, I never heard more Racist remarks in my life. Everywhere I turned. Bush Jr. And ronald Reagan and jackson should be up near the top too. Reagan was the very first start to the economic hole were in Right now. Reaganomics. You an start to blame him first and work your Way down The line.
You think invading the Middle East is bad? How about forcing people, who's land you already took and who have adapted to your culture, out of their land because of their skin color?


Andrew was HORRIBLE. Obama actually is quite decent compared to this guy. Nixon wasn't a bad president. He was one of the best politicians to live. But jackson was THE WORST.
[Newest]I saw a video by John Green that claims that his real name is Andrew "the third worst president in the United States" Johnson. He should at least be number three.

8Bill Clinton
Yeah, he cheated on Hillary, and that was horrible but he did do some good things for the country so I'll give him that.
Republicans in the house and senate haves the country a surplus and a fantastic economy and Clinton takes credit for it
Why is Clinton so high on here? Sure, he was impeached but that shouldn't be what we remember him for. We should remember him for his intelligence, personality, leadership, and fantastic decision making skills. Clearly, Clinton's presidency was a prosperous time for Americans.


[Newest]Slick willy, or $3 bill, worst time of the era

9Herbert Hoover
Hoover was not a bad president, he did not create the Great Depression. In fact, he tried very hard to prevent it. But an economic collapse of the stock market is uncontrolable. Hoover saw the nations economic boom in the 20's; and knew by the way it was going things were going to be bad, but not as bad as it got. He tried many different strategies before and durring the great depression to prevent and recover. Hoover was just in office at the wrong time. If people actually studied him, they wouyld realize that Hoover was a good president. Naturally the man in office durring the Great Depression would be the blame. Not fair.. So don't point fingers to quickly until you study the subject of the matter.
I have to agree with you. Hoover did not cause the Great Depression, and his methods of trying to combat it with a small government and a handful of federal programs were better for the people and at least constitutional compared to FDR's New Deal that turned the presidency into an imperial office.
The fact that makes him bad is that he believed that he should not give money to the poor. He instead game his money to banks to help them recover after the stock market crash but everyone knows that did NOTHING.
Even if he tried to solve the Great Depression, he only made it worse.
[Newest]It is because hoover made the great depression get worse even no he tried to solve it

10Woodrow Wilson
I disagree. The guy who talks about Woodrow Wilson causing WWII obviously has no idea what he's talking about. The Treaty was signed by Clemenceau and Lloyd George as well. As a matter of fact, Woodrow Wilson was the least harsh in that he wanted to avoid punishing Germany too severely for fear one day they might backlash.

Secondly, Wilson was actually quite progressive for his time period. He's indirectly responsible for the UN and was keen on seeing other countries gain independence. Although not the best president, he certainly doesn't deserve the title as "worst president" either.
Woodrow Wilson was a racist and only backed women suffrage for the votes. He also passed Sedition Acts that not only contributed to the Red Scare, but allowed it to run rampant in government. He encouraged self-determination, but only for European, or, rather, white nations. He denied the right for African and Asian countries then under imperial rule the same opportunity to choose their own leader and government style.
Federal Reserve Act of 1913, signed into law by none other. This and the NDAA are the two worst bills in US history, making Wilson and Obama the two ABSOLUTE WORST PRESIDENTS EVER!
[Newest]He is among the worst

The Contenders

11Warren G. Harding
Harding was clearly one of the worst US presidents, although he is relatively unknown today. I believe his own words were, "I am not fit for this office and should never have been here. " Harding enjoyed being liked more than he prized being a good leader. While president, he busied himself with golf, poker, and his mistress, while appointees and cronies plundered the U.S. government. (They were dishonest cheats, who came to be known as "the Ohio gang. " Many of them were later charged with defrauding the government, and some of them went to jail. )
He cheated on his wife, only played golf and poker, and drank during Prohibition. Also, along with Coolidge, was the cause of the Great Depression. Horrible president.
He lost the White House China while he was gambling, because he ran out of money to gamble!

12Andrew Jackson
I honestly think that the whole "Indian Removal Act" was a blackmail from the bankers, I mean come on!
-JFK was blackmailed for going after the bankers, he was said to had an affair with his spouse, and the whole "Monroe" scandal. Not to mention he got killed by the bankers.
-Abraham Lincoln went after the bankers, got killed.

Andrew Jackson won against the bankers, and you guessed it, he got blackmailed... with the whole removal act against the Indians.
How is this idiot not higher? His whole government system was completely crooked and he nearly got kicked out of office for trying to fire his secretary of war. Really, is there anything this guy is known for other than being impeached? At least Obama is imaginative and full of determination. He even caught Osama Bin Laden! Plus half of his mistakes aren't his fault because of a partly democratic partly republican congress. And what did Andrew Jackson do. ABSOLUTELY damn NOTHING!


Obama did NOTHING to catch osama, except say go do it. Seal Team 6 did, never EVER give that dumbass the credit


Andrew Jackson. I have only one thing to say about him and I'm going to cut to the chase. I'm going to flat out tell you people that he was one of the worst presidents this country ever had. If you people don't believe me, then fine be that way, I don't care, just don't rub it in face! There is no need to start an argument like those stupid people on YouTube
[Newest]Trail of Tears 'enough said.

13Franklin D. Roosevelt
ARE YOU SERIOUS? He helped lead us out of the Great Depression, tried to prevent another one. HE LEAD US THROUGH WWII. Sure he was unorganized, but he lead us through on of our darkest times when Hoover didn't do anything.
FDR fundamentally changed the relationship between the individual and the government and quite possibly eroded the democratic process (pertaining to the individual) more than any other president. Two thumbs way down.
Ultimate big government socialist. Failed New Deal policies which let Great Depression extend years beyond what it needed to be. Prototype of a bigger, harder left, Obama failed presidency.
[Newest]Eisenhower should have tossed his limp little behind off the Statue of Liberty the moment he sent his own citizens to interment camps. Disgraceful scumbag.

14Ulysses S. Grant
One of the greatest generals ever, but one of the worst presidents, sadly
Terrible president. Did nothing.


He was not a good president

15George H. W. Bush
Inarticulate, oblivious, a stooge of the far right, a legend in his own mind, replaced leadership with photo-ops, huckster, charlatan, not a Republican but a radical, a Reagan wannabe without the leadership skills


A crook, a person who has manipulated and stole from people since day one. Everything he has ever done has been done in secret and by cheating someone else. A terrible President and an even worse person. Not to be trusted.
He is the one that started all the that his son continued and Obama tried to clean up (which backfired critically).

16James Polk
Sacrificed men, just to start an unnecessary war with Mexico, easily one if the worst
The only president to support the extermination-not just treating unfairly-of actual citizens. See Mormons being hunted and eventually kicked out of their homes in the early to mid 1800s.
Broke every treaty he made with Native American tribes.

17Gerald Ford
Get a life and win a election clearly
Just a do-nothing President.
Come on! You guys need to be happy he's better than nixon, carter, and H.W. bush. Bush did end the cold war, but he was forgeteble and raised the taxs when hen promised Amirica not to.

18John Tyler
He never did anything. how would he be in the whig party? Voters after 1833 have no common sense 1840-1844 as presdient... is there anything he is known for? Should be higher up probley the worst presdient of the reconstrounction time along with andrew johnson

19Martin Van Buren
Typical. Blame the man in charge! The only reason Van Buren is considered a bad president is because he was blamed for all of the atrocious things Andrew Jackson done in his presidency. I also pity the foo who thinks Obama is Satan or other nonsense the media tries to convince us is true. People nowadays are just so ignorant and feeble minded to believe in propaganda that bashes out Obama like Fox News and all that baloney! Seriously, what is this world coming to!?!?!?
Was known as the Little Magician
Was president during the panic of 1837
Enforced the Indian Removal Act

20Millard Fillmore
Millard Fillmore created the can't help a slave escape law or something in the times of the Underground Railroad that's just mean
I would rather have James polk than him. Sense!? 1850 would be a shame.
Stupid not a part of history.

21Zachary Taylor
If he had lived longer perhaps history would have judged him better. As the last US President to be a slave owner, he was just on the wrong side of history.


Taylor was the last president of his generation (the first age of presidents) and we moved onto perhaps the best political and presidential generation in history, or worse in some ways
@singhj Dude, U. S Grant was the last to own slaves not taylor. Why don't you know David rice atchison? Was presdient for 1 day like the guy said when he was already in this list... Poor list. Putting wrong pepole at the top.

22Franklin Pierce
Franklin Pierce behind FDR? FDR is arguably our nation's greatest president! Pierce was a drunkard in the War of 1812 and couldn't even fight. He basically won the presidency because his good friend wrote a book about him. Let's not also forget the Kansas-Nebraska act basically spread slavery out west.

23William Harrison
He was alright even though he served a month
Served a month, cheap.

24Benjamin Harrison

25John Adams
John Adams was an amazing man, but he wasn't a very good president. He didn't spend enough at the capital, he never really did anything for America, and worst of all, he passed the Alien and Sedition Acts which were terrible.


I always thought he was a humdrum, everyday kind of president, that is until I realized and remembered that he passed the Alien and Sedition Acts which were supposedly unconstitutional. I say this because it violates all of our 1st amendment rights and freedoms granted by the Constitution, which shouldn't be abridged.
He was a great president, he stopped us from starting a war with France.

26William Taft
He should be higher on the list than 22. You seem to forget he almost destroyed the Republican Party. He was non existent as President, and was responsible for raising tariffs and breaking treaties. In fact he was so unpopular at the time that his mentor, Theodore Roosevelt ran against him, bolted the Republican Convention and ran as the Progressive Party candidate. Thus led to the Presidency of Woodrow Wilson.
Fattest president that ever lived he was the 27th president he was 350 the only thing smart he did was add more banks for Delaware since he said that was the best state Delaware was also the first state.

27Chester A. Arthur
Arthur was not bad, but enforced garfiled. He came from the New York senate

28Harry S. Truman
He bombed Japan not the USA
A nuke was quicker and less bloody than the alternative invasion.
Harry Truman had the guts to say and do what he thought was right. He took over from the popular FDR, and ended WWII with a courageous decision. Japan's rulers didn't care about their own people, all they wanted was to have the U.S. in the war. Well, they got us, and Harry got them. Go Harry Truman, a True American.

29John Quincy Adams
His presidency is just as bad as John Adam's, but at least John Adams didn't use bribery to win the election, unlike his rich, spoiled son, John Quincy Adams.

30James Madison

31William McKinley

32David Rice Atchison
Although he only served as president for one day due to zachary taylor's "issues", dude was a huge pro-slavery guy and was very violent during bleeding Kansas.
Who the heck is this dude? I don't recognize him anywhere in any history books That I ever read

33James Monroe

34Rutherford B. Hayes

35Dwight D. Eisenhower
Though Eisenhower was a military genius, this man's response to ANYTHING was to nuke it or overthrow it. Chinese conflict at Qeymoy Island, "Let's drop a nuke! " Lebanon Civil War..."Drop a nuke! " Democratically elected officials who WERE NOT murdering their people in Iran, Guatemala, Tibet, Indonesia, Cuba, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo! Some of these countries had just democratically elected new leader, but their new leaders could pose a threat for some corporations in the U.S. so Eisenhower had them overthrown. Some of these coups were epic failures causing the deaths of many innocent civilians and led to wars that caused the deaths of millions more. More than Truman ever "killed" during the atomic bombings.
He also refused to do anything about Senator McCarthy and his witch hunts, nor did he even touch the crumbling situations in the American South.
This man was not a great president and should go down in history as such.
One of the best. He was truly concerned for the country and it's people.
He was a great president with a tough childhood he should be at 42

36James A. Garfield

37Theodore Roosevelt
He shouldn't be on this list, wanting to preserve nature, helping stop the Russo-Japanese war, shot in the chest and gave a 90 minute speech, wanting some equality between whites and minorities.
I wish we had this guy today cause we would be shooting guns on the white house lawn. He was so cool not like these ferries we have today like who we have now. He was a real man. Not like this sweet pea we have today. I don't think Teddy would like Barrack at all. He would give him a 30 second head start and by sun down his head would be mounted on the oval office wall as a trouphy. But he would take it down as it would really detract from the d├ęcor.
Why is he on this list?

38George Washington
Whoa whoa whoa! Why is George on this list? He's technically the reason why we're a free country!
Every president is on this list. George Washington is the 6th-best president to the people of There we go. Capiche?
There wouldn't be a United States if it wasn't for him we would have probably lost the American revoulition and if somehow we did there would be a king
For all of you idiots who think he should be on this list, let me give you a newsflash. The reason this country even exists is because of him! Without him the revolution wouldn't have started, and we'd still be under Britain's heel for much longer than we were.
[Newest]Whoever voted for this has some MAJOR issues and should move to Northern Canada... Just saying

39Grover Cleveland
Simple he was elected once lost office than regained office. why does that seem mind boggling to you and I'm a ten year old.


This is in possible that he was president 22&24
With a name like grover he had to be a dork.

40Thomas Jefferson
Just because he owned slaves does not mean he is a bad presdint. George Washington owned slaves and you treat him like he's awesome { even though he is}
He was a great president!


He owned slaves and slept with a slave. an had her kids work for him till they turned 18
[Newest]He was a man of many talents

41Calvin Coolidge
I'm just voting for him to try and push Lincoln out of this list..
The man whose corruption led to the Republican party changing from liberal to conservative values... Abraham Lincoln would have been ashamed
Created the trickle down theory which Regan used that rocked America
To be the worlds greatest country hands down!
Just by that he shouldn't be on anybody's worst list.

42Ronald Reagan
Are you for real? He was a great president. 1. ) He basically ended the Cold War 2. ) Helped get the Berlin torn down
Reagan did not end the cold war... He merely was sitting in office when Gorbachev ended the cold war.
Iran-Contra, raising taxes on the poor and middle class, Savings and Loan scandal, Busting the PATCO--the air traffic controllers' union--the union's complaints were legitimate), catering to the Religious Right, ignoring AIDS, refusing to crack down on Wall St excesses, reducing funding for college students, attempts to dismantle reasonable environmental laws, tripled the national debt, forced all social security disability cases to be formally reviewed because he believed that most of the beneficiaries were cheats (cost a lot more money than was saved. ) spent money on Star Wars missile defense system that was regarded by expert scientists and engineers as unrealistic and risky, promoted 'trickle-down economics'--which put a lot more money in the hands of the wealthiest.5% with little benefit to the rest of us... Closed the mental institutions and woefully, inadequately funded community mental health centers, creating a huge homeless population.
Ronald regan rules one of the best not worst stupid list how bad are you what's next lincoln
[Newest]Ronald Reagan was the best president of all times next to Abraham Lincoln.

People who think Ronald Reagan was a bad president was either not around when he was in office, was a child and didn't know what he had done for us, or is to far left and think all Republicans was a bad president.

43John F. Kennedy
I do believe that he is overrated, if you read "Killing Kennedy" you will see why. He put many personal issues above his presidency. But this does not necessarily make him a bad president. Definitely overrated, but not bad at all.


One of the best Presidents ever! He was going to do some things that no one else had the guts to do until his life was cut short. He knew things and didn't believe in secrecy in government. That is why he was assassinated.
Kennedy could not simply handle his own family "issues" and his own "cravings"/"temptations" so why trust him to be the head of your entire nation!?!? He was better than most and LBJ was a murdering traitor, who surrounded himself with only his kind! See who LBJ's buddies were and you will find the root of evil in your country! The problem is the US government, it is no where democratic, and even the days the people vote mean nothing! The elections are won before the first vote is cast... Largest campaigns, the richest friends... I mean Baby Bush wins both elections... Laugh out loud... He was not where he was out of popular vote or by intelligence! Fixed elections and daddy Bush was good buddies to LBJ and another traitor, Nixon, and oil money!
[Newest]Well he is 44 which is all the presidents so this makes sense

44Abraham Lincoln
Your kidding me? Lincoln is awesome! GET LINCOLN OFF THIS LIST!
We can't. There is 44 US presidents. All of them are on here. Therefore, to the people, Abraham Lincoln is the greatest president of all time. You're American, right? Well, I'm a 12-year-old Canadian, thank you very much. LEARN!
The person who put Abraham on this list needs to smack themselves in the face, Lincoln is AWESOME!
The person who said Abraham Lincoln didn't free the slaves has to be a far left wing Democrat and must think that all Republicans is bad.

There is good and bad in both parties and Abraham Lincoln was and still is the best president of all times and Democrats just need to get over it.

I have done deep research on all US presents unlike this person trying to say he didn't free the slaves, I didn't find anything showing that didn't free the slaves.

The Republican party always been about freedom for all and if people would do their research they will see that trying to stop slavery is what created the Republican party in the first place.
