Asking which President was the worst, will get you many different answers, but most historians and experts will agree – the title goes to James Buchanan.  His resume was one of the most impressive in the history of the White House, but his obsession with being a Presidential People Pleaser may have ultimately been his demise.  He flip-flopped a lot on important issues, and contradicted himself repeatedly, leading many to blame him for finally igniting an already tense situation that would tear the country apart.
