Out of all the gangsters, serial killers, mass murderers, incompetent & crooked politicians, spies, traitors, and ultra left-wing kooks in all of American history -- have you ever wondered who the worst of the worst was? Well, we here at RWN wondered about that, too, and that's why we decided to email more than a hundred bloggers to get their opinions.That sounded interesting. Then I read the list. Here's the top 10:
9) Aldrich Ames (11)That's right, incompetent one-term president Jimmy Carter is the worst figure in American history, followed by incompetent one-term ( hopefully) president Barack Obama. They are somehow not only in the same league with, but worse than Aldrich Ames, Tim McVeigh and Benedict Arnold. This is the kind of "thinking" that gives ammunition to those who want to paint conservatives as a bunch of crazies.
9) Timothy McVeigh (11)
7) Ted Kennedy (14)
7) Lyndon Johnson (14)
5) Benedict Arnold (17)
5) Woodrow Wilson (17)
4) The Rosenbergs (19)
3) Franklin Delano Roosevelt (21)
2) Barack Obama (23)
1) Jimmy Carter (25)
The rest of the list is no better. Here's just one example: Hilary Clinton. What has Hilary done that could conceivably justify including her on a list of the worst Americans of all time? Hilary has been a first lady, an unremarkable senator from New York, and a largely ineffective Secretary of State. I'm no fan of Hilary, but in what universe is she somehow one of the worst Americans in history? This list is good for one thing and one thing only: making right-wing bloggers look bad. Thanks a lot.
