Lincoln's first year was horrible. He looked weak and the country was falling apart. It was one terrible thing after another. And that kin his first 100 days. Yet he is rated number 1 by CSPAN. James Buchanan was a terrible President and from the start was considered a poor leader. Andrew Johnson refused to work with the Republican congress and was nearly impeached. Warren G Harding's administration was plagued with scandals. How about Martin Van Buren When he became President the economy was booming but in less thatn three months, businesses and bank were failing and Van Buren impliment policies that historians all agree made things worse. "President Jimmy Carter, for instance, took office with large majorities of his party in the House and Senate, as has President Trump. But Mr. Carter’s inability to connect with congressional leaders, in part due to staffers who expressed disdain for legislative leaders, stymied his agenda from his first months. Congress refused to go along with his proposed cuts to “pork barrel” spending projects. They rejected a Carter consumer protection bill and labor reform package." "The Reagan administration suffered from intense infighting in its top ranks during its first months. Secretary of State Haig – who famously and wrongly insisted that “I am in charge” following the assassination attempt on Reagan by John Hinckley – was not the only casualty. National Security Adviser Richard V. Allan was eased out after only 11 months, in part because he could not referee stronger personalities in Reagan’s security circle." "Mr. Clinton’s first months were chaotic. His first two nominees for attorney general, Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood, both eventually withdrew due to revelations that they had employed undocumented immigrants as nannies. He became embroiled in controversy over his attempt to allow gays to serve in the military, ending in the “don’t ask, don’t tell” compromise policy. His secretary of Defense, Les Aspin, proved to be too disorganized and not decisive enough to run the enormous business of the Pentagon. Mr. Aspin, a former member of Congress from Wisconsin and chair of the House Armed Services Committee, barely lasted a year in the job." https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Polit...ear-troubles.-Trump-is-the-same-and-different FLASHBACK: Bill Clinton’s Chaotic, Confused, Failing First Year As President Clinton’s presidency was such a disaster in only four months that Time Magazine devoted a June 1993 cover story to his long string of failures. The cover featured a tiny Bill under the large print title, “The Incredible Shrinking President.” Inside the magazine, the headline asked: “Is Clinton up to the job? Americans are starting to wonder.” Time Magazine “Reports of chaos, confusion, and infighting seem to leak out of the West Wing on a daily basis. The president is his own worst enemy, easily distracted, obsessed with minutiae, and uninterested in instilling much order in his administration, the Atlantic wrote a month earlier. “His staffers, many of them young, don’t really know the ropes, and it shows.” http://thepoliticalinsider.com/bill-clintons-failing-presidency/ https://freedomoutpost.com/flashback-bill-clintons-first-year-president-chaotic-confused-failing/ https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/slideshows/the-7-worst-us-presidential-scandals?slide=9 Hey Barbarian, do you want me to delete you from all the CE&P forums or will you just bow out gracefully?
