Topic: Bottom 5 Presidents – History of American Politics HIUS-341
Every so often, a ranking of presidents is compiled by leading historians and scholars. Most people have their top 2 or 3 favorites. Some may have a top 5. Far fewer think about the worst presidents in U.S. history. While this course has not discussed every U.S. president in detail, it has covered the entire width of United States history and touched on every era’s major political issues. You have learned enough to make an intelligent argument about whom you think are the 5 worst presidents in American history.
In your thread, first provide a basic list, 5 to 1 (with 1 being the worst) of the presidents in your bottom 5. Then, in 100150 words per president, state why each man has made your list. You have a minimal amount of space, so think carefully. The point here is to critically assess what really matters in American politics and make a reasoned argument in a small space. In your replies, you must once again play devil’s advocate. Pick 3 presidents from each classmate’s list to whom you respond, and offer an argument as to why those men should not be in the bottom 5. You do not need to claim these men are your favorites, although you can. You are simply stating why you believe they don’t deserve to be in the bottom 5. You might actually have them on your own list, but you need to offer a different perspective in the replies.
To note. – Donald J Trump is the worst. – You can add that to the top of the worst list and leave Obama out of this. Do whatever else you want. Thank You
