Why is Herbert Hoover one of the worst presidents?

I find it odd that you judge Hoover to be one of the worst presidents and do not know why you hold that opinion but think someone else may be able to tell you.Hoover came into office at a bad time. The stock market crashed soon after he took office and the country was thrown into a great depression. He may not have acted quickly enough to improve the economy but in his day the government did not try to control the economy in the way it does now. After two years he had a hostile House and lacked a majority in the Senate so he could not do much.

Who are the greatest and worst presidents?

There is no scientific way to measure the quality of presidents. Historians and newspapers come up with ranking from time to time. Politics always seems to play a big role in the rankings, especially when it comes to judging recent presidents. Moral values and personality may come into play. Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson are almost always given high marks. Both Roosevelts, Wilson and Jackson were considered to be strong presidents and get high marks if you like what they did. Pierce, Buchanan and Harding are found near the bottom on most lists. Both of the Adamses , Hoover, Carter, Ford, and George H. W. Bush were voted out of office by the people and so must have lacked something. Not too surprisingly, recent presidents are often loved by some and hated by others.
