    The other three lead a pack of really terrrible chief executives. aGolf Twitler is in a class of his own. A true waste of skin.

    I always thought Franklin Pierce, until now, his level of corruption was unmatched. Now it looks positively infinitesimal.

    And GWB thanks God every day that Trump was made president, saving him from that dubious honor. Being only the second worst president in Modern US History pales in comparison.

    Trump, by far, is the dumbest, greediest, deceitful, cold hearted waste of air in history!

    Trump would have to work hard to reach the heights of the James Buchanan presidency.

    Sorry, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he wins, but it’s too damn early to rate Trump. I firmly believe that you don’t rate a presidential administration until 50 years after it’s over. Gives time for the partisan rancor to die off, and to find out everything that really happened during that administration. Prime example: We hated Nixon back in 71, but if you had claimed back then that he prolonged the Vietnam War to win the election, you would have been relegated to the tin foil hat brigade. However, as it turned out . . . .

    Also, Andrew Jackson was, historically, the most effective president we had between Jefferson and Lincoln. His downplaying is totally because what he stood for (and the majority of the country supported at the time) is anathema to current political sensibilities. I can think of lots of better candidates for that fourth slot. Start with Millard Fillmore or Andrew Johnson.

    It’s not just about who was the worst. It’s about the weaponry this maniac has as compared to those ancient ones. Also about the internet as this maniac spills his colonic contents for all to see on Twitter just about every night.. late at night most often.

    In twenty years youngsters will ask “Granddad, why did you vote for Trump” and the answer will be shamed silence.

    @ZomVee – HAHAHAHAHAHA! A few actual historical notes:

    James Buchanan allowed the South to secede, and to pillage Union Army property, meaning they were instantly equipped for war. (And check on Andrew Jackson and the Nullification Crisis of the 1830s, to see what he COULD have done instead.)

    Dubya: Killed the Clinton budget surplus by giving it away to the rich, launched the Afghanistan and Iraq wars for oil while claiming it was to make up for 9/11 – proof being that Iraq had nothing to do with it, and Obama tracked down Osama bin Laden after Bush decided to give up – two wars we’re STILL paying for.

    Lyndon Johnson: pushed through the Civil Rights Act, Medicare, and other laws that JFK probably could never have succeeded in doing, leveraging his experience in the Senate and the shock of JFK’s death to get things done.

    Barack Obama: too soon to say, but reset the economy on a positive path after the Bush Recession so well that #45 is trying to take credit for it now; saved the auto industry; established a precedent for a national health insurance approach despite dedicated opposition; re-established a positive view of America globally in the wake of Bush’s disasters.

    Woodrow Wilson: were it not for him, WWI might have ended years earlier in a negotiated peace like previous wars, we would have saved the lives of over 110,000 US soldiers, and the groundwork for WWII would not have been laid. He also undid many of the civil rights of the old Republicans and promoted the KKK.

    FDR: Were it not for FDR, Britain would have fallen to the Nazis, and with it, all of Europe. Period. Were it not for FDR, we would not have developed the atomic bomb (and Heisenberg might have, with more time). He should not have put the Japanese into concentration camps, a permanent stain on his record, but he can claim greatness.

    Sadly, there’s nothing so good that a modern Republican president, aided and abetted by a complicit and corrupt GOP Congress, cannot wreck.

    You can always be “best” as long as you get to define the metric.
