Obama is having a bit of a rough start to his second term.
But there are some presidents who would kill for his problems right now, i.e., a second term.
1. George H.W. Bush
Three-way race? Who cares. My kid will get me the keys back in 8.
4. Herbert Hoover
Depressions are a bummer.
5. William Howard Taft
Lost reelection in 1912. But now has plenty of time for riding! Poor horse.
6. Martin Van Buren
Van Buren lost a campaign for reelection in 1840 to William Henry Harrison. But Harrison died shortly after taking office. So joke’s on him.
7. Benjamin Harrison
Beard? Check. Reelection after the U.S. Treasury went bust? No.
8. John Quincy Adams
He lost a campaign for reelection in 1828 to Andrew Jackson. But Adams was the first president to be photographed! Cool.
9. John Adams
Our second president lost to Thomas Jefferson. Whatevs.
