Federalist: John Adams (pretty easy choice, since it's between him and Washington)

old Republican: James Madison

Whig: Zachary Taylor

Democrat: a dead heat between Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan

Republican: tough choice, since there have been so many bad ones. Maybe Calvin Coolidge, for his priggish ultra-conservatism that did so much harm to the country.

It's rather pointless, but I love rating presidents.

Federalist
John Adams: Extremely partisan presidency, tried to destroy opposition with the repressive Alien and Sedition Acts.

(Democratic-)Republican
James Madison: Recklessly jumped into the War of 1812 and dangerously mismanaged the first years of the war. The Treaty of Ghent left the issue of impressment of American ships, one of the causus belli, unsettled.

Whig
Millard Fillmore: Passed a stronger law against fugitive slaves. The Compromise of 1850 satisfying no one. And he was an anti-Catholic bigot who later was the presidential candidate of the Know-Nothings.

Democrat
Franklin Pierce: Considered going to war with Spain to conquer Cuba. Supported the coup of pro-slavery filibusterer William Walker in Nicaragua. He supported the Kansas-Nebraska Act which led to Bleeding Kansas, dragging the country one step closer to the Civil War. His successor James Buchanan is a very formidable challenger for worst Democrat however, because he too did nothing to stop the Civil War and it was during his presidency that the hostilities began.

Republican
Herbert Hoover: His handling of the Great Depression was disastrous. He offered no hope to Americans during the crisis and his economic policies were actually rather leftist. He raised tarriffs and taxes, which made the crisis worse, and his spending was "reckless and extravagant" as Roosevelt stated.

Federalist
John Adams

Democratic-Republican
Don't know enough about Monroe and Quincy Adams to say

Whigs
Milliard Fillmore  (Zachary Taylor was the best Whig President)

Democrat
Grover Cleveland- For refusing to help people in need during the Panic of 1893

Woodrow Wilson- For re-introducing segregation to the federal gov't and destroying America's chances of being in the League of Nations due to his own temper.

Franklin Pierce- For being a weirdo

Andrew Jackson- Trail of Tears, and publicly ignoring Justice Marshall's decision in support  the Cherokees.

Republican
I suppose George W. Bush, but I'll say Ronald Reagan, because it annoys me the way Republicans worship everything he ever did. He's a god to them Roll Eyes

Democratic-Republican: Unfair, primarily since there are only three, who each had ups and downs and by leading a young country had to learn on the job.  Monroe was the BEST out of the three, however [I classify J.Q. Adams as a National Republican].
Federalist: No Answer [Unfair to ask seeing as how John Adams was the only official Federalist President].
Whig: No Answer, All of them had their ups and downs in about equal proportion.
Democratic: Woodrow Wilson.
Republican: George W. Bush [His policies are nearly anti-republican in every way, and he gives lipservice on everything else].

I'm not even going to list the first 2 parties as it isn't worth going through a couple of guys for each. Why's this thread resurrected anyway?

Whigs
Millard Filmore(I still don't think the FSA was necessary, but then, I'm not up on the debates, apart from the fact that Taylor wouldn't compromise

Democrats

Woodrow Wilson. Pierce is slightly behind somewhere


Republicans

George W. Bush seems easy, but remember that Grant and Harding were also incompetent, even though we never got in any major wars under them(I'm thinking Latin interventions of the 20s here, which weren't exactly wars per se, except maybe in a few places like Nicaragua with Sandino)
