Stupidest U.S. Presidents
The Top Ten
I'm not surprised that this mentally ill; poor excuse for a human being is doing so poorly as a president of anything. He is our first mentally retarded/mentally ill president in history. He does and says things that only an idiot might say and is proud or filled with self indulgent fake superiority and intelligence as only he can explain. He brags about "tapes" and impedes constitutional and unconstitutional laws just as other famous past presidents (Richard Nixon) have done and met their Watergate. He hasn't even learned that he might just be a "Crook" as well as an "Idiot". He should stop before he shoots himself in the head or his wife by mistake. He might as well make himself the head of his own investigation of himself.
Multiple Presidents of the past were mentally ill to some degree. - floral
A unexperienced celebrity/businessman who's trying to make America worse (by spreading hate to muslims and the disabled, "celebrating" the military, hiring white supremacists in certain roles, dumb decisions etc). He's pretty much turning America into the next Nazi Germany (no Trump you're not like Lincoln, you're like Hitler or Stalin, heck Russia's trying to mess with us all with their propaganda that helped you win.)
Trump gets along fine with all dictators and hate all the leaders of the democratic countries. If he had his way (if he had more time and a minimum of intelligence), I'm sure he could be as bad as Hitler and Stalin. He said there were fine people among white supremacists, the way he's talking about immigrants is a bit like how Hitler spoke about the jews at the beginning. He even said about Kim Jong-un that his people obey him without question and that he wants it to be the same way here. Wake up, that man is a narcissistic scumbag who will be remembered in history as America's biggest shame. - lilyflower
Have you heard his views on Andrew Jackson and the Civil War and now you can add his version of why Napoleon lost in Russia (because of extra curricular activities) and how the Russians defeated the Germans in WWII (one night of -35 degree temperature, just because of this one night). Plus he brags, "I'm like a smart person" or the infamous "...I have a good brain" and so it goes...
Ran for the office to become President. No other agenda, just wanted to be President. Unfamiliar with the second amendment, no knowledge of Federal Court appointees, no opinion on abortion, until the Republican Party told him what to believe. Unfamiliar with the Constitution of the United States. Can't wait for the books which will be written after he leaves office.
not smart, not evil, just not smart at all (only president dumber is Trump). unfortunately he had Chaney who is/was an evil mother f'er
Get your facts straight. This man did NOT inherit a recession of ANY kind; he inherited a SURPLUS because of how good our country was in financially and otherwise with a BOOMING economy! Those you disagree need to look for other sources that are NOT Fox News or MSNBC. Him and the Republicans in Florida cheated the 2000 election from Al Gore.
He destabilized the Middle East when he took out Saddam Hussein. His conies said the war wouldn't cost the U.S. much that oil $ would pay for it and we would be treated as liberators. Where did they get their intelligence from?
He sent our country into the most severe recession since the Great Depression.
Tax breaks for the rich in a time of war was a bit too much for our economy to handle.
He is a joke and an embarrassment. Shame on people who voted this puppet president into office twice.
Signature domestic achievement: No Child Left Behind is now considered a failure by even the most strident conservatives.
Signature international achievement: The war in Iraq is a dramatic failure that has made life much worse for millions of people. Made worse by the fact that his own Father said that this would be the case 10 years earlier when planning the first gulf war.
OK, lets compare Obama to Bush for a second..
Obama's regulations got the economy back to pre-recession levels, and now the US is doing fairly well by international standards.
Bush removed all regulations and allowed corporations to destroy the economy.
Obama's policies created 7.7 million jobs.
Bush's policies created 2.6 million jobs.
Obama orchestrated the successful assassination of Osama Bin Laden and withdrew from both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Bush lied to the American people, attacked Iraq to obtain it's oil reserves, created a vacuum of power eventually filled by ISIS and gave Bin Ladin time to escape from Afghanistan.
Obama responded to terrorist attacks by trying to ramp up public security and discouraging reactionary violence.
Bush responded to terrorist attacks by starting wars and killing more people than the attacks themselves.. by a lot.
Obama put restrictions on the NSA.
Bush gave the NSA the ability to spy on ...more
I also agree with everything you said. Bush is awful. But trump is the worst of the worst. - CostcoHotDogs
I can guarantee that EVERYONE who is so against him and are on this site are either racists. Even if you claim you're not a racist, if you genuinely say think he's a terrible president, I promise you, you're a racist piece of trash at heart, even if that's unconsciously.
Obama managed to clean up the mistakes Bush made. Bush was able to ruin all the good things Clinton did.
Also, the person said something about how the US needs to team up with Ukraine to defeat Russia (even though there's no actual war going on) and how Obama's bad for not doing that, did you ever maybe consider that the Ukraine-Russia conflict has NOTHING to do with us and that if we attacked, we'd be beyond screwed?
Barack Obama was the best president The United States of America has ever had, the only reason why he is hated is because those who hate him are the typical right right wing racists and capitalists. The reason why he is liked around the world, is that his politics were in line with the rest of the world. He did his job well and opened up new opportunities for everyone in the states. As Americans you should be glad that you had him as a president, since your current president Trump has begun to destroy human rights in your country, making the rich richer and the poor poorer. You will see by the end of this year 2017 that there is nothing good left in your country. Instead you will probably have a new civil war at hand or a revolution if Mr.Trump is not stopped and imprisoned.
One of the greatest statesmen the United States has ever had,
This man was one of our last good Presidents, based solely on Peace, Liberty, and Constitution as ratified. Should be lower on this list.
Gave government jobs to his crooked friends. He only won because he was good looking
The original Donald Trump
Where are the Idiots I voted for?
Business man who was president during the Depression. Oh wow, next business man to be president and there's a global depression. I'm sure it's a coincidence.
Honestly, I pity Hoover. I'm not a republican, but I think he was not half as bad a president as people make him out to be. He did not cause the depression. Indeed, I have to say, though, his politics were stupid, as non-intervention cannot solve a huge crisis (nor can it solve any crisis). So not too smooth to do that. But saying he caused the depression is excessive. Definitely not the worst president.
What an idiot! Yeah, you're lucky that FDR came after you to clean up your Great Depression mess.
Hoover did not start the Great Depression. It came unexpectedly. - IcetailofWishClan
What the Hell is this?
Really? How can harry truman be stupid save on of the top 20 richest country in the world as our ally? Buchanan said that we need to calm down the south when the north are still angered!
His arrogance caused the civil war.
It was just his stupid arrogance that somehow got Lincoln killed, too. - IcetailofWishClan
Here is a thought: send troops to the Southern US.
He's quite intelligent. He's got an IQ of 141. He's just a terrible president.
His name starts with an u!
Richard was not stupid. On the contrary, he was quite clever, devious and cunning.
Richard was a great president. Then he was involved in the watergate. He has done WAY less lying than hillary clinton, and he was to be impeached. She, however, is allowed to run for president.
He just retired
Thief, cheater, and general ass
He was a drunk. He learned to read and write until he was married!
Called the energy crisis the "Moral Equivalent Of War," the acronym for which is "MEOW," the sound a cat makes. Botched the rescue operation in Iran for lack of a single helicopter when the U.S. military had 5,000 in its inventory at the time.
Why did he increase gas prices?
no economic sense
Why the hell did he increase gas prices?
Throughout the knowledge of what I know of him, he was at the very least a decent president, not a bad one. He cared dearly about the country, just like other good presidents. He’ve done many things to help this country grow,
We were in the black when he was president not trillions of dollars in debt like we are now!
Hes one of the biggest reasons for our economy. Everyone blames Bush but it goes back to Clinton
Him, obama and bush followed and are following orders from one organization. Federal Reserve Bank. Open your eyes America!
He should be above Trump.
Certainly the dumbest. He didn't take mommy's advice to put on a coat or stay inside by the fire.
What? We don't know much about William Harrison's presidency.
All he did was give a hour long speech in a blizzard without a jacket, then die from a cold.
He had no education and couldn't even spell his name.
His name should have been Andrew Jack Ass.
Why is he on our money?! He literally committed mass genocide.
- Hated paper money, yet is placed upon the $20.
He didn't actually get stuck in a bath tub but he had two other bath tub accidents.
Got stuck in the bathtub. Enough said.
Taft rhymes with daft
His bathtub could fit four men.
He looks like william henry harrison but harrison is uglier
Cheney did NOT pull the strings for Bush 41. Bush was directly in charge of how to deal with the Soviet Union as it was collapsing.
- "He really never was President. He was only a Puppet with Cheney pulling the strings".
liar, cheater, continued bad policies of republican party
Yeah he is the worst president because he gave birth to JUNIOR BUSH
pardoned Nixon, Nixon should have gone to jail for what he did
Ford was an idiot.
started the prion disease that has eaten away at the republican party and our democracy
I saw what happened when his "trickle down" economics trickled nowhere. I saw the cuts he made to mental health and the streets of San Diego where flooded with people talking to themselves and shouting unintelligible things. How ironic that he himself became afflicted with Alzheimer's and maybe that was his problem while in office.
This president attacked every right of All Americans and did things in contrast to the constitution of the United States.
Although popular nowthat he is gone I remember having to live through10% plus inflation every year he was president.
And below is a clone of Lyndon.
He was the best president shame people shame
Someone misread the title. He is the greatest president of all time.
Someone misread the title.
A felon that did not let states act under the 10th amendment, he should have been shot!
This guy was way too smart. Clever and sneaky enough to completely ruin the country with his unconstitutional policies (income taxes, federal reserve act, etc.), lying the nation into a second term and then right into WW1 which he said he would stay out of, and to keep his insane racism on the down low.
Say what you will about his presidency, he was the only president with a doctorate and was certainly a very capable academic.
Sold out the country by signing the federal reserve act. Death bed regret of oh my god, what did I do
Sold out American by signing federal reserve act. Death bed regret of what he ha done to country
Best president ever.
Harry was an idiot and wasn't truly elected.
The best President this country has ever had. If he had not been deliberately assassinated by powers that be, we might still have a republic government with constitution and the law of the land
BEST president ever, he wanted America to have peace
He was intelligent. He was in the Peace Corp.
Best president in the whole world.
Uh... No. John Quincy Adams was actually the smartest president, in terms of IQ. His presidency just wasn't that good.
He had over 300 slaves and had kids with one of them he’s just a psychopath
