J Buchanan (0-3) First to lose to a dead cat, vs C Arthur (0-3)
M Fillmore (0-3) vs J Tyler (0-3)
B Obama (0-3) -bye -

Again, this is a triple-elimination tournament with pairings set up by initial random draws. This is not to be taken seriously, but to exercise perspectives of how different Presidents faced their duties, crises, and opportunities.

As before, no actual politicians were harmed in the creation of this post. The cat, while dead, is feeling much better.
