Dan Quayle’s son is running for congress in the Show Me Your Papers state. He’s running a new ad wherein he states that he thinks Obama is the “worst president in history.” Really? REALLY? Think what you want, good or ill of Obama, but the worst president in history? James Buchanan? The pre-stock market crash triplet of Warren (scandal ridden) Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover? The “I was actually impeached” Andrew Johnson. Potato, Ben, Potato. I tried not to mention “W” because it sounds so partisan, but “W” does make the list of worst presidents in presidential scholars polls and lists such as this Siena College Presidential Expert Poll, and well, geez, Ben, sins of the father and all – potato.
