Being president of the United States is a tough job. While presidents like John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan are often praised for their time in office, have you ever wondered which presidents may have been bad for the country?
A book called "9 Presidents Who Screwed Up America" attempts to answer that very question.
Author Brion McClanahan takes a new look back at American history, stating that the nation's current problems are attributable to nine men who served as commander and chief.
For McClanahan, the issues facing Americans today "didn't start with Obama."
"Americans seem to have resigned ourselves to the exact form of government that the framers and ratifiers of our Constitution feared most: the tyranny of an elected monarch," McClanahan writes.
The Daily Caller's Brent Smith says the book, "lays out a case, in plain English, how each of nine presidents 'Screwed up' our country." Smith continues, "It is a fascinating and factual accounting of presidential usurpation of power ... This book is entertaining and educational – a feat which is all too difficult to achieve. I must say, I am smarter for reading it."
"9 Presidents Who Screwed Up America" comes just in time as the country prepares to select the 45th U.S. president.
Hopefully whoever's elected doesn't end up being number 10 on McClanahan's "Screwed Up America" list.
