He wasn't a hero he was zero.

Spoils System

Jackson used The Spoils System by rewarding his political supports with government jobs. This is a reason why he was a zero, because his people did not think on their own and just followed Jackson's ideas. Also his people did not have the experience needed for a cabinet position.
