The neo-con historians strike again. Should we not expect this from the National Review? Of course, but a recent piece by “conservative” Jay Cost on “The Worst Presidents?” is particularly bad. Eric Foner could not have written it better. In fact, I wonder if Foner guest wrote the column. Cost considers Pierce, Buchanan, and Andrew Johnson to be the worst presidents in American history…after saying that ranking the presidents is impossible. There are so many problems with this piece, so I take it apart in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
