George W Bush, because of his mishandling of the situation after 9/11 and the situation after Katrina.

What a load of Democratic bull, show me one bit of evidence that Hoover deliberately crashed the economy of the world (and how would one man manage to bring down the entire world?)

O_o
Hoover single-handedly decided not to help the public during the Great Depression. He believed government intervention was bad, but at the time it was what saved our butts. Because Wikipedia is the only reliable source. FDR came in afterwards and started groups like the CCC which boosted everything.

So by not helping to fix a situation, you are responsible for the situation existing.

and since when did Hoover have control over the economy of the world?

And since we are trying to point out faults in other presidents, type "unconstitutional" into the find box (ctrl-f), and note that even the "great savior", had his faults.

The Dust Bowl was inevitable considering how dumb farmers were back then relative to today. Black Tuesday (stock market crash) was controllable, but ended up being a mess because Hoover refused to help. No one even caused Black Tuesday, all things considered. it just kinda... happened.

Hoover refused to help, and by doing so the situation was extremely exacerbated by the time FDR popped into office.

Desperate means call for desperate measures. Sure, FDR did some things that weren't granted by the constitution, but he never did them directly. He used the power of bully pulpit (popularized by the first Roosevelt) to influence congress's decisions. Directly, he did nothing unconstitutional, but his influence caused a lot of things to happen that he couldn't do himself. It's like a loophole.

I think, that the worst president is our president Václav Klaus. He is internationally famous by that stolen pen, methanol cause and that january amnesty... :/

LBJ was the most crooked. Obama is the next.

No mention of Franklin Pierce? The guy who got elected president because Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote a fictional story about how great he was? The guy who was so unpopular that he couldn't even snag his own party's nomination after his first term?

Talk about a useless historical figure. You can't get any worse than complete incompetence.

Wikipedia is a relable source?
If I want real reliablity I use Bobby Goram's most useful detective tool; a library card.

Sorry for going offtopic.
I'm now interested in Franklin Pierce.

While I agree he was basically a blank figure, that's sort of what saved him from being hated; he was blank. He didn't do anything, positive or negative. There have been presidents (e.g. Hoover) who were looked upon as being great men until they were elected. Then all they did was screw stuff up.

I was kidding. But I did skim through to make sure there wasn't anything extremely inaccurate, and it looked Ok.

just look for the sources of the info if you do not believe it.

also is every change on wiki monitored by over 6mill people every day. if something is really wrong they get filtered out there. and then there is the company itself that checks the info on popular pages.

95% of wikipedia is reliable. the other 5% has just changed or slipped past the checks mainly because no1 is interested in the info.
