Are you upset with the Obama Administration? Well before you start getting on his case just consider all of the work he has to put in so that he can clean up the mess from these past presidents! This list details the 10 worst presidents in American history. Believe us, there were some crappy leaders in this country, even before George W. Bush came along. (Still, he is pretty bad.)

We hope you learn a bit more about these presidents and why their terms have left a bad taste in the mouth of Americans as well as a stain on our record. From goofy gaffes to flat-out lies, these leaders have exhibited some poor strategic planning and wacko decision-making. If you thought being the president of the United States was a hard job, you might at least think you could do a better job than these guys. Maybe it is time that this country had a female president...

With the elections approaching and the candidates coming forward, now is a good time to reflect on what a president does not want to do for his (or her!) country. We hope you enjoy reading this list and remember that we could be in a much more complicated place than we are now.

Ah, George W. Bush. This is a crappy presidency that is still ripe in most of our minds. Bush is despised for such a variety of reasons that we could make our own list of them. He was a proud supporter of the death penalty, he bought and bribed his way into office, he backed down on climate change, and he cut ties with various global partners. He is blamed a lot for the war in Iraq as well as the trouble and deaths that the United States suffered in Afghanistan. He portrayed himself as fully incompetent and unabashedly neglectful to the advice of the United Nations and other global leaders.
