For essentially waffling his way out of his own party's nomination for a second term on the subject of expansion of slavery into new territories. Compromise is good when it gets things done, but compromise to pass the buck isn't impressive.

As the first VP promoted upon the death of the sitting president, he created the "Tyler Precedent" which clarified part of the US Constitution which left it unclear as to whether the VP actually became president or merely acted as president until an election was held. He wasn't the best president once he was in office, but he did manage to avoid a potentially disastrous constitutional crisis following Harrison's death.

I mentioned this already, but paying farmers to destroy crops and livestock in the middle of a depression really is crazy. It would be like paying people to start tearing down houses today because house prices are too low. Destroying real, tangible wealth like that is just absurd. When people are already suffering in the midst of a depression, it's criminal.
