Hotzendorf1918

Hoover, Tyler, and Van Buren don't belong in the bottom 10 tbh


stupid-cat-with-face

I didn’t know who else to put


Hotzendorf1918

Well I actually like all of them so that's why I said they shouldn't be in the bottom 10. For clarification, I think Tyler was a good president but a bad person for defecting to the Confederacy. Meanwhile, I think of Hoover as a slightly above-average president and Van Buren as an average president, but like their careers outside of the presidency.

>I think of Hoover as a slightly above-average president What


Hotzendorf1918

Hoover's response to the Great Depression, white undoubtedly extremely flawed, was far less neglectful than many say it was. The Great Depression famously began with the stock market crash of October 29, 1929. However, the stock market started to decline a few days before this, on the 24. Hoover was already planning his response to what he knew could become a severe recession or depression during that 5-day interim. Furthermore, almost immediately after the stock market initially crashed, Hoover called a meeting of prominent American businessmen where he urged them not to fire their employees. Then, throughout the crisis, he routinely urged the rest of the government to commission public works projects to increase employment and provide Americans with a stable income, an idea that would become central to the New Deal. He also called on states to work with private charities to help those impacted by the depression. Of course, certain aspects of Hoover's response to the Great Depression actively made the situation worse. Specifically, his tax hikes and signing of the Smoot-Hawley Tariff both intensified the depression's severity. And obviously, Hoover deserves immense criticism for those decisions. However, his response to the Great Depression wasn't entirely ineffective/counterproductive. In 1931, Hoover convinced a group of banks to band together and establish the National Credit Corporation, which used money from a $500,000,000 deposit to assist struggling banks. Now, the bankers in control of the NCC didn't want to give away money during an economic crisis, especially during one as severe as the Great Depression. So, the NCC failed. However, Hoover then established the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. The RFC was very similar to the NCC but was an actual government agency, so it was far more effective and actually did improve the situation. Moreover, Hoover did a lot of good outside of his poor, but still underrated, response to the Great Depression. He was a devoted advocate of indigenous rights, even having a Native American vice president named Charles Curtis. He drastically increased spending on indigenous affairs, and in the process, ultimately improved living conditions for Native Americans. Additionally, he established the Federal Farm Board to issue loans to struggling farmers. Furthermore, he placed 2,000,000 acres of land under conservation, commissioned the Hoover Dam, and founded a set of organizations tasked with studying and providing the government information about social issues such as poor health in children and corruption in the judicial system. Under Hoover, overcrowding in prisons was more or less resolved, as Hoover commissioned numerous new jails to space-out inmates. Hoover's foreign policy was also amazing. He attempted to quell Chinese-Japanese tensions in the aftermath of the Mukden Incident and the ensuing Japanese invasion of Manchuria. While he did fail in this endeavor and deserves criticism for that failure, he also deserves credit for trying to do so. Additionally, he reduced US influence in Latin America and convinced the militaries of Japan and Britain to downsize.

Even if I take for granted that his response to the great depression wasn't very bad, he had a bunch of other blunders, like Lilly-White Republicanism, supporting prohibition, and the Bonus Army Debacle.


Hotzendorf1918

>Even if I take for granted that his response to the great depression wasn't very bad Not to be pedantic, but I do agree Hoover's response to the Great Depression was very bad. I just think it was better than some say. >he had a bunch of other blunders, like Lilly-White Republicanism, supporting prohibition, and the Bonus Army Debacle. I would have to do more research on Hoover's involvement in the Lilly-White Movement and his support of Prohibition, but I have read about the Bonus Army incident. I agree that Hoover deserves a lot of criticism for his response to the situation, but it should be noted that after it, he did increase the pensions of WW1 veterans. Sure, he did only do it because of public pressure, but he still did it.

Narrow-Bug230

Why Harrison at 10?


HarryMcCockner

Harrison approved the wounded knee massacre & approved the army for giving out medals of honor, like they were candy, for the soldiers who committed the massacre. He also saw the oversaw the abdication of the Queen of Hawaii and it's annexation, one of the most shady parts in U.S history imo.

Least Bad is #10 —> Worst is #1 10. Warren G. Harding (needed #10, was generally pro business and was corrupt) 9. John Tyler (Really was just stubborn about the bank, he annexed Texas which I think was rushed, also just needed a #9) 8. Donald Trump (honestly just not effective, the stuff he did do is against my political views, and generally I think he just made America worse with his rhetoric) 7. Franklin Pierce (Kansas-Nebraska act, ineffective) 6. Martin Van Buren (ineffective, technically did the mishandling on Natives that caused the Trail of Tears) 5. Andrew Jackson (My main reason is the Indian Removal Act, if I'm being honest I never can decide my opinion on his destruction of the bank, because on one hand I want the common people to have as much power as possible, but I'm also not the biggest expert on specie economics lol) 4. James Buchanan 3. Ronald Reagan (This one is probably my only controversial one, I’m a hardcore leftist so he is pretty much the antithesis to everything I stand for which is why he is bottom 3) 2. Andrew Johnson 1. George W. Bush

Where do we begin? 1. Support of the Sandanistas is having negative repercussions today. 2. Was too focused on Middle East peace which never lived up to it's goal of being a roadmap to peace. It actually created alot of division. 3. Ineffectively dealt with a poor economy. 4. His decisions directly caused the Iranian Hostage Crisis. 5. Had a disorganized and chaotic administration.

The Great Society was counterproductive, and Vietnam was one of the biggest foreign policy failures ever. He also cratered the economy by the end of his term.

It wasn't his fault that he was ineffective. Jackson destroyed Adams' popularity - and by extension, ability to pass legislation - through his rumors of a "corrupt bargain."
