President Obama has created more problems than he has fixed. He has said he wants to lower taxes for the middle class, 5 years later that still hasn't happened. He's also said that he wants to "get rid of the Constitution". He says; "It's out of date." Then, he wants to get rid of guns, all that's going to do is make it harder for the good guys to get guns and the bad guys are still going to have guns. I do agree we need to fix the school shootings problem. However, President Obama wants to go about this the wrong way. Gas prices instead of decreasing have increased, he has put us in more debt than any other president has ever. He's put us more in debt in four years than a president that had been in office for eight years.


I pretty much despise President Obama, and he is one of the worst Preisdents ever, but he isn't the worst President we've ever had. Let's look at some really, really strong candidates for 'worst president ever':

Warren G. Harding - One of the most utterly incompetent Presidents in history. His administration was chock-full of scandals such as the Teapot Dome scandal, where the Secretary of the Interior basically took bribes from oil companies to sell oil production rights to them on the cheap. He mostly rewarded his friends (the so-called 'Ohio Gang') with high-level jobs. Not the best way to run the country.

James Buchanan - Refused to deal with the looming crisis of secession, despite sterm warnings from the Commanding General of the Army, and once it started he was utterly inept in handling it. Outside of it, he was very close to being impeached due to supposedly bribing Congressmen for their votes.[2]

William Henry Harrison - Served for a total of 32 days before dying, leaving a massive constitutional crisis in his wake.

Richard Nixon - Watergate.

Jimmy Carter - Poor economic manager, even worse at foreign policy.
