In reply to comment: Can we all agree on Woodrow Wilson (see in situ)

FDR was worse, IMO

The New Deal was about as socialist a policy as one could imagine short of actually abolishing private property. Then he intentionally provoked Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor so that he'd have an excuse to take the country to war, not to mention that he was already illegally fighting the war in the Atlantic months before Pearl Harbor. Plus Japanese internment. Plus the attempt to pack the Supreme Court. Etc.

In my book, Wilson gets second place (which he shares with Lincoln).
