I agree with you. She’s killed as many people as Hitler or Stalin.
There could easily be 200 names on the list of the 25 worst...
Walter Cronkite, Peter Jennings, Katie Couric, The rest ot the far left Journolist Cabal.
I think Chomsky has done a lot of damage, warping college kids.
Abraham Lincoln , not Booth
We need a bigger list.
John Maynard Keynes
Harry Hamilton Laughlin
Not if you’re a Mets fan
Criminals like Capone are debatable when you're talking about essentially political figures (and yes, Capone was a political figure, too, with his bribes, etc.); but if you start including common criminals like Capone and Hinckley, they get shoved aside pretty quickly by Lecter-esque figures like Ed Hein, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Gacy. And let's not forget monster-woman Carolyn Wuornos, the first female serial killer ever identified and captured.
But if you're just talking about political people, you'll see LBJ and the Rosenbergs are already on the list. Huey Long is a good suggestion. And I'd add Henry Wallace, Stalin's man in the 1948 election, and Ayers and Dohrn, James Earl Ray, Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, H. Rap Brown, Stokeley Carmichael, Wm. Kunstler, Mario Savio, Tom Hayden, Donald "Cinque" DeFreeze of the SLA, Jim Jones, Alfred Kinsey, the dynamic duo of Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, Aaron Burr, Alan Greenspan, the Walker family, John Brown, Tokyo Rose, and David Koresh.
And while I'd disagree that Woodrow Wilson, Al Gore, and Harry Reid are significant enough to remain on the list (they tend to drop off from insignificance), I'd argue for Tom Daschle replacing all three of them, for having invented both the Obama campaign (he was its architect) and the government shutdown in 1995 that enslaved so many government check-cashers to the Clintons.
There are plenty of other candidates.
Really had to fish for that one.
9) Timothy McVeigh (11)
He shouldn’t be on the list. In the grand scheme of history he did very little and it didn’t have a lasting national effect.
Woodrow Wilson should be where he is or closer to the top.
Federal Income Tax, Federal Reserve.
And a whole lot more. Wilson and FDR, neck and neck for worst President.
“I would have added John Dewey to the list.”
Yes, and Colonel House
Ditto Howard Zinn. These people are poison.
Actually not a bad list....and I can tell that with some of the names that this were some conservatives....and not some GOP Liberal Globlaists, who put this together
Nixon not a surprise....when you figure he pandered to Communist China...and signed all those environmental bills. Watergate was nothing compared to the Liberal Globalist nonsense Nixon got America involved in
Woodrow Wilson was obvious....Income Tax replacing tariffs....our first Liberal Globalist president
Tired of seeing Nixon on everybody’s bad guy list. The break-in was a minor incident. The cover-up would not brought down his Presidency if he was a democrap in the current news environment.
Overall, wasn’t that bad of a President. At least, not enough to make an all-time list.
I think Sears should be on the list. If I am not mistaken Sears gave us withholding income tax from the pay check. Things would not have got so bad if people had to wright the check for tax every quarter.
I nominate William Taft. He pushed for the Income Tax. That cancerous amendment made the explosive growth of the federal government inevitable. It passed under his watch.
