James Buchanan (1857-1861) Democrat

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.

Runners up:
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.
When Lincoln became President, Buchanan said: "If you are as happy entering the presidency as I am in leaving it, then you are truly a happy man."

This example of his idiocity proves that he truly is the worst president ever.
