What makes a good President? Well, ideally you want someone who can help usher peace and prosperity for all Americans. Or, if things go wrong, you want a President who can take charge and guide America through its trials and tribulations with the nation coming out stronger on the other side.

Anyway, here are some more bad Presidents, each one slightly less bad than their predecessor.
