Harding is up there as one of the worst. I'd give first place to James Buchanan. Half the country took off while he was in office and he did absolutely nothing. Half the country tried to take off on his watch and he didnt lift a finger. Just passed it off to the next guy. The mess Obama inherited was nothing compared to the one Lincoln got. People can hate Obama or Bush jr all they want - but the country was still in one piece when Bush left and I imagine it will be when Obama steps down.

Indeed, he was a bit of a jerk and covered stuff up but a number of good things happened under his administration too. I would not say he was one of the worst.
