Discovery's Greatest American: The Winner Is
You talk'n to me... You talk'n to me?
I was actually hoping for Lincoln to come in first followed by Reagan, but honestly I'm just happy they even recognized him for his accomplishments. After the MSM's attempted smear campaign went down in flames last year, I wasn't sure what to expect.
One thing that is for sure is this man is still my hero. I'm curious as to how things would be different if he were running the show. The Soviet Empire and the GWoT are two different enemies, but it would have been great to hear Ronnie's take on our newest foes. His image and words still inspire and uplift me to a level that G.W. has never been able to equal.
With regards to the top ten list, Thomas Jefferson should have been in there and well ahead of Oprah and Elvis. Makes you wonder who did the voting. I was never thrilled with this concept of voting for the 100 Greatest Americans because it's taking these important people and turning their accomplishments into a VH-1'esq episode. I guess these days I'll settle for any discussion on the history of our nation and it's important historical figures. You take what you can get.
