This comlete imbecile failed, and made no determined effort, to prevent the bloodiest conflict in American history, the Civil War.
The guy above me claiming George W. Bush is the worst president ever should go read a book on American history.
What's worse? 2000 killed fighting insurgents in Iraq. Or over half a million Americans killed IN AMERICA fighting EACH OTHER.
He didn't seek re-election in 1861 because he didn't want to take responsibilty for the world of shit that he knew was coming.
His successor in 1861 was, perhaps, the greatest president ever. Abraham Lincoln.
If Buchanan hadn't been a complete jackass, maybe 970,000 Americans wouldn't have been killed or wounded from 1861-1865.
Andrew Johnson (1865-1869) Democrat/Republican
Herbert Hoover (1929-1933) Republican
This defintion is coming from a Canadian author, someone who has every reason to take shots at George Bush. But instead I give you unbiased analysis on who was probably your country's worst chief executive.
This example of his idiocity proves that he truly is the worst president ever.
The Canadian guy above me is a complete retard and needs to re-read his "history book". I'm a 9th grader in America, and just finished reading about the Civil War. Aberham Lincoln was in office when the Civil War began dumbass. And the Civil War wasn't something that killed thousands of Americans for no purpose, dumbass. It was to free, slaves and to re-unite the united states, dumbass. So before you start running your mouth, maybe you should re-read some of your books, a?
