James Buchanan

There are many historians who consider James Buchanan as one of the worst presidents of the White House. That’s mainly because he took no action to try to unify a country that was sharply divided over slavery, and did nothing to stop the Southern states from seceding in the lead-up to the Civil War.

While his pre-presidency resume was quite impressive, he blew it during his presidential years. He allowed the residents of each territory, and not the U.S. government, to decide whether or not they should allow slavery. Every step and every action he did as a president made the country grow even more divided.

  1. I would bump Ike to 6th best, and move Theodore Roosevelt to FDR’s spot. On the worst list I would put Barack Obama somewhere on the list. Actually, I believe the 5 worst list should be expanded to 10.

  2. You missed Trump under worse president ever! Hard to miss him since he lied almost 40,000 times while in office and almost took back the presidency, that he lost fair and square, through a violent insurrection. You can’t be a chicken Shit like everyone else or this country and the democracy we stand for will soon perish. Grow a pair dude!

  3. Ronald Reagan was one of the worst presidents ever. He was responsible for arming and training the contras. He made the rich richer and the poor poorer. He almost eliminated the middle class. We are still paying for his programs. Ollie North brought heavy drugs into the US (at Reagans request). Instead of going to jail, he ran for public office…and won. He was behind the prisoners being held captive until after the election. No Mr Nice Guy!! There’s more!
