Correction, that was Andrew Johnson for the Civil War.
I like him and his thoughts.
Me too! I love how inclusive he is.

The Civil War is not Buchanan's fault. It's the fault of the idiot slave owners in the south who claimed to be Christians while "owning" other people.
@AbleLearner Fair point. I'm not blaming Buchanan for the institution of slavery. Just saying his presidency was unable to solve a really, REALLY serious problem and the failure to do so led to something that was truly awful. So he gets worst all time in my books.
Look on the bright side, he (and Mitch McConnell) might just have highlighed all the ways the system can be corrupted, allowing for constitutional amendments to, for example:Get big money out of politics.Remove the electoral college (the small states still have senators to fight for their rights), the president represents every American.Require 60 votes in the senate to confirm any federal judge, 67 for SCOTUS.Have presidential pardons subject to confirmation by congress with a simple majority vote.(Off the top of my head.)
@goaded : You make some good points.
Thank you. To hear the media talk about him you'd think he committed genocide. All he really did was offend some white women.
Harding did not appear to be personally corrupt but did hire corrupt subordinates. He died of a heart attack.
You're just jealous cuz he got some action. What a winner he was.
Being male is not my choice
Hoover: Let the economy collapseLBJ: Great Society that ended the decrease in poverty and Vietnam WarW: Killed over 500,000 Iraqis in an unnecessary WarTrump: makes people mad with the stupid things he says.Your standards need adjustment.
@Liam_Hayden Ahh yes, that's accurate. I can't believe W singlehandedly created ISIS and triggered a sunni-shiite civil war like that.I might give you Hoover, not for 'letting the economy collapse' but for signing Smoot Hawley. I imagine trump idolizes him. Being president when shitty things happen doesn't mean you were a bad president. The world has been lucky that Trump hasn't had to deal with much other than his own twitter feed.
Someone biased talking about bias. Hypocrite.
Some say he was in on 9/11. Personally I don't know what to believe anymore.
@OfDeath 9/11 was a controlled demolition, search 9/11 tu delft for all the evidence. Ill leave it up to you who had access to both the security to the building and military grade thermate.
Even President is a narcissist. Who else would want the job?
Jimmy had a good heart.
#standardguy When the president has the lives of millions in their hands I'm not interested in good hearts. I want someone who thinks.
Do you think he was in on 9/11?
