Gonna buy five copies for my neighbors. Props.
Nice cover, but I would probably take the less PC approach and say either Lincoln or FDR. Definitely one of the worst, though.
I agree, Paul. Bush II probably belongs in the same league of awful contenders along with Wilson and LBJ.
Adams, or at least his Congress? Don’t forget them.
FDR is probably the worst, but why do you say Lincoln? I don’t really know to much about him, just curious…
I say Lincoln mainly because he was the first to institute an income tax, and also was instrumental in pitting the North and South against each other economically, which led to the Nation’s split in the first place.
A lot of the time he’s romanticised as someone who saved the union and freed the slaves, but he’s the one who split the union in the first place, and he didn’t seem to care about slaves at all until he could use it as a rallying cry for war.
I’d have to say Woodrow Wilson was the worst. Ten points to anyone who can tell me why!

The League of Nations?
ROFLMAO! Thanks Steve! Im gonna buy a copy… make that two…. maybe three…. wonder what David Duke thinks….
The worst President in history?
I’d have to say Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Overall historians’ ratings of the presidents:
One historian/law professor’s ratings:
Wilson might be my first choice (for last place), too. There is soooo much to hate:
Federal Reserve Act
16th Amendment (Income Tax)
17th Amendment (Direct election of Senators)
18th Amendment (Prohibition of alcohol)
World War I
Sedition Act (yet another)
Federal Trade Commission (and other “progressive” agencies)
One hardly knows where to stop.
It’s a coin toss. FDR and Woodrow Wilson
