Who in your view is the single worst President ever to serve in these United States?
Vote in poll and discuss in thread.
Also I voted Ronald Reagan that man single handedly destroyed the Republican Party, the last good Republican President we had was Richard Nixon, other than that watergate thing.
But Ronald Reagan made Barry Goldwater's predictions a reality.
My top 5 worst presidents are
1. Harry Truman - Is responsible for creating Israel and made FDR's policies worse
2. LBJ - Made Niggers dependent on welfare, behind the assassination of JFK, and continued the war in Vietnam
3. James Buchanan - Pretty much let the civil war happen by not taking any action to prevent it
4. George W Bush - The Iraq war and the Patriot Act
5. Barack Obama - Worsened relations with Russia, Obamacare, increased racial tensions, got into unnecessary wars like the one in Syria, and made actions that led to the rise in ISIS
LBJ, hands down
You guys can bitch and moan about Dubya and Obongo all you want, but basically every problem with america today stems from LBJ.
Immigration from 3rd world shit holes leading to america only being 63% white as of 2016? LBJ
Social welfare programs that dismantled the traditional family unit (children no longer needing to take care of their elderly parents) while at the same time turning into a bloated financial disaster that is going to crash our economy? LBJ
More welfare programs for nignogs in order to lock in the black vote and reward them for being scum? LBJ
And let's not forget the escalation of Nam. Thanks for that.
Runner up is Wilson for starting the fed.
I would say Wilson or Franklin Roosevelt for all-time, but in my lifetime Obama has been the most destructive. George Bush Jr is a close second.
Wilson goes way beyond the Fed.
>Wilsonian idealism ruining our foreign policy
>getting us into WW1
>Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918
>introducing the income tax
>endorsing for the 19th Amendment
Pretty much all of America's problems come from Wilson selling us to the merchants.
Backstabbing, and unethically racist asshole who passed one of the most detrimental bills in American history, which was to permit the Federal Reserve to print money on Christmas when all the Congressmen and Senators were spending the day with their families.
The only thing he ever got right was predicting WW2 due to the unfair treatment of Germany in the Treaty of Versailles
He was just guilded era corrupt. he appointed his friends to high offices that made the US resemble a corrupt 3rd world country. He wasn't absolutely evil in the same way that Wilson was, or Franklin Roosevelt, or Johnson.
>Coolidge has one vote
>Grant has 2
come on /pol/, Grant was one of the most actively corrupt presidents in history. Look up the Teapot Scandal. Great general, horrible president.
I will even be fair to Coolidge in that he mostly stuck to his non-interventionist guns, even when the country wanted and needed some Keynesian intervention.
He let the country's economy collapse, but it was because he believed that the economy would fix itself. Which it never did until FDR stepped up intervention, and WW2 caused the government to take over everything.
so where is Abraham Lincoln? I don't see that fucker on the straw poll list and he is a heavy weight fuck up for how he handled the civil war and basically caused it to become extremely dragged out and bloody by his sheer incompetence
>called for the culling of numerous towns of the south
>terrible tactics lead to victory by throwing as many bodies on top of the enemy as possible, using an unlimited forced draft
He was a terrible person in general, but Wilson was a much more damaging President.
Grant was a drunkard
Andrew Johnson was a class-a cuck who no one liked.
Lyndon B. Johnson is the reason black people vote democrat 24/7. He loves welfare
Obama stirs racial tension and
Truman: FDR on steroids with down syndrome
FDR: Socialist fuckwit; gets credit for singlehandedly ending WW2 just because he was president during it and for singlehandedly saving the economy using his magic.
Lincoln: Suspended Habeas Corpus; loved to stomp on constitutional rights
George Bush Jr: Patriot Act; WMDS!!!
Ronald Raygun: Bad: Iran-Contra; Amnesty to Illegals Good: Showing them commies who is boss
John Adams: Alien and Sedition Acts; general cunt.
Buchanan: Spineless wimp
>and made actions that led to the rise in ISIS
should be in the G.Bush bit ;) Obama had literally nothing to do with ISIS.
It was a combination of the Iraq war (G Bush) and the fact that syrian civil war dragged on long enough for extremism to take root.
When it was just the FSA vs Assad there was no ISIS or Nusra - had there been an end then... maybe there would have been little chance for ISIS to become a thing
But, if there was no Iraq war, then ISIS would have been impossible.
>Obama had literally nothing to do with ISIS.
ISIS grew from the syrian rebels, who Obama was arming to overthrow Assad. Obama had a direct hand in creating them. Also he helped with th \e arab spring which launched a bunch of these caliphate groups into power.
Back then we had a good legislator, Henry Cabot Lodge who worked hard to derail the insanity that was Woodrow Wilson. Woodrow Wilson nearly doomed this country.
>insanity pic related.
Obama supported rebels aka "brave freedom fighters" who later allied with ISIS. People were speaking of the extremism of the rebels back before ISIS became a major group. His supporting of the rebels caused the war to drag on. They were well equipped and I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of their weapons weren't in ISIS hands by now.
There are much worse; Idk about you're schooling but my school didn't even mention him or Grant.
Thanks. It gives me no pleasure to shit on Wilson because I get my middle name from him, but he was 100% the worst president in history.
There sure are some close runner-ups though
WW1 would've been a stalemate if the US hadn't gotten involved. We had no reason to bail out a bunch of useless cucky European empires. None, but Wilson was never far from a 'really good idea'. He fucked us.
IMO, if you factor out recency. Obama and Bush being number 1 and 2 respectively, it look like Woodrow Wilson is our winner in third, despite having left office in 1921.
Also, to that one person who voted for Teddy. You are a faggot, kill yourself.
Your school didn't mention him because he was a shitty president that didn't make it a full term. He was Lincoln's VP that took over after his assassination and tried to continue Lincoln's reformation of the union after the effects of the civil war and he basically fumbled and broke his ankle. Wasn't prepared for the task at hand and they created laws just to get someone else in the office
Lincoln was bad, and power mad, but are you seriously going to compare him to Wilson the Destroyer of freedom?
Obama had alot more to do with ISIS than you believe.
The withdrawal of U.S. Troops in Iraq's Cities and Country side allowed ISIS to take over these areas through intimidation and rule. The refusal to send them back in was also a major part in it.
After that his negligence in Libya, where he knew there was a rising threat, even with the incident in Benghazi leading to the rebels demolishing Libya's standing army, and then afterwards end up joining ISIS to the point Al-Queada isn't even active in Libya anymore.
During that time he also tried to start a war with a major opposing force (Assad) against ISIS, and then ended up fucking up and sending weapons to ISIS indirectly to certain rebel groups.
Then he fucks up even more.
Now Iran has just declared war on ISIS which gives them a Diplomatic Immunity to charge into Iraq and seize the Eastern Oil Fields.
And to even fuck that up even more, his IRAN DEAL literally gave the Americans No-Pros because he can't even do that right. Iran got everything they wanted.
He didn't even start the war, you dummy. That was Buchanen. Lincoln was riding on the anti-Slavery and Anglican vote at the time and ended up with the mess on his lap.
>People voting for either Bush or Obama
FDR is objectively the worst, although Lyndon Johnson and Woodrow Wilson come close.
>implying Wilsonianism isn't the source of all our Middle Eastern troubles
You don't have to be /pol/ to accept that he opened the door on these idiotic "exporting democracy" excuses.
DO NOT RESPOND
They are trying to figure /pol/ out with these threads and then how to manipulate
This isn't fair, no one even knows who John Tyler is. And why is William Henry Harrison on there? Why is William Henry Harrison included on any 'rank the presidents' poll?
But then again, thank you for not including Jefferson Davis like they sometimes do for legit surveys they ask historians.
During the African American prime, Reagan authorized a false flag to incite the Drug War by allowing the CIA to fly in millions of pounds of coke and crack into specifically African American communities to create the current police state.
When it started seeping into white areas, he then subtely stopped the operation.
>he literally started the drug war he was whining about to get elected
At the same time, this man could have been elected too.
Too much lib butt hurt from who the obvious winner would be.
my bad. I was thinking of Hoover. My vote still went to Grant, desu.
I still take points from Coolidge for being the inspiration for Reagan.
I would also argue that the conditions for the Great Depression where made during Coolidge's presidency. I can't really blame Hoover for the mess Coolidge inadvertently helped create.
>inb4 get out, commietard
It wasn't specifically that Lincoln was power mad, was that he was a Civil Interest President in a war time. Just like Bush Jr.
They'd be better presidents if they weren't in the middle of a war.
Also, the only President mentioned in this wiki is Kennedy for rejecting it, never said anything about Reagan. Still waiting for proof from an actual source not wikipedia or the fucking huffington post.
>believing one organization planned to kill Kennedy
Obama isn't good, that's a given, but yes these men did A LOT of damage especially LBJ fuck him.
We all knew that Obama would be first because the people on this board feel a great deal of pain through actual thought.
Voted Obongo. He completely annihilated our foreign relations and destroyed race relations. In addition he has polarized our country meaning congress will never be able to compromise again.
>listed as a negative
I won't deny he was a raging alcoholic, but his vicious pursuit of total war won the Civil War.
Granted, the Union was already winning on pretty much every other front in the war besides the Virginia/Maryland front, (and Grants success in the Kentucky/Mississippi front is what led to him being promoted in the first place.), but he helped put the final nail in the coffin.
War has always been an awful, winner-takes-all affair, especially so with modern conflicts. Being ignorant of this is a big problem with America today.
Oh, look. Threads dying cause I started posting the Gary Webb shit again.
>you have been visited by le executive order nigger of the United States of America
>good luck and a 2 term Trump presidency will come to you but only if you say "impeachment now" in this thread
Adams, by far.
Daily reminder that his Federalist policies almost turned this country into a literal dictatorship, and only by the grace of Jefferson were we able to escape a one-party status (federalists=Big Gov, so it would basically be 200+ years of Hillary)
Other: John Adams.
The alien and sedition act almost destroyed our nation when it was still in its infancy. Thank goodness Jeffersonian idealism supplanted his Euro-cuck style federalism long enough for our nation to develop its own separate culture.
bush jr hands down. ive lived through the memory of nixon, ford, carter, reagan, bush, clinton, bush and obama. nixon was the most evil of those, reagan represented the beginning of the end for america, and bush may have put the final nails in the coffin. more unnessary dead under his watch, and unlike all the pre ww 2 prez's, he is a world leader. the earlier ones could only fuck up america. bush fucked the world. I dont even think he knew what he was doing, which is worse than being evil and setting out to do what you do. ill give props to nixon for that.
no, his ENEMIIES did that, and kept him from acting. he's like superman vs lex luthor. superman has morals, lex doesnt. repubs will burn the house down and drown the baby to get what they want. what you want is a dictator who can simply destroy the opposition.
