Ben Quayle: Obama is "Worst President in History"

Ben Quayle, the son of former Vice President Dan Quayle, is running for Congress with a brash message in a new ad: "Barack Obama is the worst president in history."

The 33-year-old is running for Rep. John Shadegg's open congressional seat in Arizona. His new ad is strikingly simple. Quayle somberly delivers his message in a darkly lit, out-of-focus room.

"Drug cartels in Mexico, tax cartels in D.C. -- what's happened to America?" Quayle asks. "Somebody has to go to Washington and knock the hell out of the place."

Quayle came under fire this week for ties to a gossip website. Special Report: Campaign 2010
