The Worst President

I thought I'd change things up a bit this morning.

With the call in Congress yesterday for impeachment, I did some research into the bottom 10 Presidents in the history of the United States. 

There are a couple of sources and they do not agree.

I found it interesting that Andrew Jackson is on one list in the bottom 10 and made others in the top 10

James Buchanan
Generally recognized as the worst President for failure handle the problems
that led to the Civil War
There is great disparity in the lists. Those prepared by historians and scholars generally have James Buchanan listed as the worst president. The lists prepared by popular vote tend to focus on recent presidents and frequently overlook some of the more historic presidents. 

The CBS list already has our current president listed as the worst. I think that is a bit premature. It is interesting that Trump is already supplanting Buchanan who is almost unanimously recognized as the worst president in the history of the country. 

There remains time for the current president to cement his location in the list--apparently, he can only go up from here. The circus that is The White House needs to settle down for him to relinquish his current ranking as the worst!
