The End of 100 Days; An New Federalism Amendment?
I would also like to introduce the Aesthetic Capitalist's Real-Time Ranking of Worst U.S. Presidents. I came up with this idea shortly after the election. Unfortunately, I did not have time to implement it until now, and given President Obama's ability to act counter to fundamental ideas of individual rights, capitalism, and a rational foreign policy, he was able to jump to the top of list and thereby rob me of the "drama" of moving him up the list while explaining each new ranking.
It is certainly arguable that Obama's first one hundred days is already worse than all of Carter's presidency. But I do think Obama is going to need at least another month to three to wreck our economy and self-defense to extent that President Carter did.
I am hoping over the coming weeks to fill in the reasons why each of the following presidents are so bad.
1 tie) Jimmy Carter
1 tie) Barrack Hussein Obama
2) Franklin Delano Roosevelt
3) George Walker Bush
4) Lyndon Baines Johnson
5) Woodrow Wilson
