    Hoover didn't have 8 years to ruin things, which is why I gave Bush the nod.

    Hoover:
    Prohibition
    The Great Depression

    Bush:
    September 11
    Afghanistan
    Iraq
    Katrina
    The Environment
    Valerie Plame
    Guantanamo
    daylight savings changes
    A bunch of stuff i'm forgetting
    The Great Depression part 2

    I'm not familiar enough with all of either Presidents policies so I'm withholding my vote. I will say that one had shanty towns named after him and the other was mocked for his constant good 'ole boy dipshittery, and told bold faced lies to the country on a number of occasions to get us into a smaller version of the Vietnam war. And Bush appeared to have an affinity for using the constitution to wipe his ass.

    The point is they both did a bang-up job
    Each are part of the bottom 5 for sure.

    Sorry, i should have said "daylight savings changes". The time zones are still the same, the time is just fucked up.

    (i work in IT and we're still fixing weird shit, twice a year, due to that pointless change).

    For Bush, don't forget the whole "Brownie" incident. That disgusts me.

    Why are these the only two choices? These guys were both very bad presidents, but I don't think either is the "worst" ever.

    I think Bush gets labeled the worst because his reign of terror is so fresh in everyone's memory. Not to defend him, he was very bad; I just don't think he'll go down in history as the worst.

    not to defend bush either but hating him kinda became trendy. The same way people started to support obama because Obey put him on t shirts that were sold at trendy clothing stores. And because he was black and young etc..

    True, but Wilson tried to veto it (at least according to Wikipedia). Hoover upheld the stupid thing until FDR had it overturned.

    I like how Hoover has 2 things in my list, and one is debateable

    if your trying to prove me wrong, dont answer with a dumbass post saying things like "eats babies for dinner" and "killed hundreds of thousands of people" because the literal meaning of your statement is he used his own hands to kill hundreds of thousands of people. your a fucking moron and are exactly the kind of person i'm talking about. My post, to not incite a full on political argument was simply saying that it became easy to hate him because everyone in the country was turning against him. I'm talking about the people who whether or not knew anything about what President Bush did in his 8 years started to voice their opinions on how terrible he was cause that was the easy thing to do, and when asked well what do you think that he did was so bad ? there response was "he fucking sucks and he's a hillbilly".

    Same problem I had with how it became almost a fashion statement to support President Obama. Am I saying he was the wrong choice ?no. I'm not saying anything positive or negative about him, rather his "supporters" who would wear t-shirts with him on it just because. I asked a couple people at my school who would wear his shirts very simple questions like "what do you like about him?" "what about his policies do you like?" and the response was bewilderment, and saying things "he's black" , "the obey shirt was cool".

    i totally agree with what you're saying about people hopping on media bandwagons and how it's cool to hate/like certain things. trust me, i'm not attacking that position. however, i feel that the opposition against bush stems from very real and very horrific policies he and his cabinet enacted. no shit, he didn't literally run around killing people. but he began military strikes and offenses that resulted in the death of thousands of people. the reasoning behind all that seemed questionable and not worth the cost.

    oh, and the eating babies thing was just a reference to a david cross standup. it made me laugh. sorry it pissed you off so much. anyway, you make good points and we're on the same side. smoke a bowl, have a beer and think before you start unnecessarily calling people dumbasses and fucking morons.
