    What an interesting introduction? Did they really have to include skinny dipping? I thought I was funny when they said John Quincy Adams “fortunately lost the next election.”
    He didn’t really seem good for the presidency and it sucked for Andrew Jackson that he lost due to a bargain with Clay and Clay never got to be President.
    After J.Q. Adams was done being president, he found his place in the House of Representatives.

  2. John Quincy Adams was the son of the second president, John Adams. John Quincy Adams then became the sixth president of the United States after he had won the election of 1824. John Quincy Adams ran against Andrew Jackson and even though Jackson received the most votes, Adams ened up winning the election because he had promised to make Henry Clay his secretary of state. Adams was very formal and would read the bible. He only served for 4 years and then went on to serve in the House of Representatives.

  3. According to the Law of United States everything and everyone should be treated equals. Then why did John Adams became the second president even though he had an less votes then Quincy?

  4. Moral of the story for Clay, “Dont settle for second place.” Adam won because he chose to give Clay an ultimatum.

  5. As John QUincy Adams was running for president, no one had one more than 50% of the vote but Adams still had won because Adams promised to make Henry Clay the secretary of state. Adams was a go getter and was up 5 am every morning reading the bible. Adams was considered formal and proper. Adams then again went against himself, being self righteous, stubborn, and irritable. After his career as the president, he started a new one in the house of represntatives.

  6. the election between john Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson was to me unfair considering the fact that Jackson had the most votes. just because Adams promised Henry Clay if he won he would make him his secretary of state. so clay tipped the poll in Adams favor.

  7. John Quincy Adam was a man who is thought to have won his presidency election by brivary . It is said the he promised to make Henry Clay his secretary of state in hope the scales would be tipped his way. Coincidently he was granted presidency but later kicked out of presidency to remain in the house of reps.

  8. John Quincy Adams was the son of the president and he also was the author of the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine was the policy that opposed European colonization with independent nations. Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams were both elected for president, and at first Jackson got more votes and Adams was runner-up. But because Jackson didn’t get over half the votes The House of Representatives chose between the two to pick the new president and Adams won. After his four years of presidency he made a career in The House of Representatives.
