McDonnell makes list of 'Americans most hated' by the left

Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell has arrived. He made Townhall's list of "The 100 Americans the Left Hates Most" -- coming in at #47.

This should dispel any notions that our new Republican governor isn't nationally known -- or isn't disliked by those on the other side of the aisle.

Here's what the magazine says about him:

After Virginia voted for President Obama during the 2008 election, it was an uphill battle for GOPers to reclaim the traditionally red state. The efficient and effective
campaign of Bob McDonnell beat the odds and rode the wave of political discontent to victory by a huge margin. His gubernatorial victory in Virginia marked the beginning of a
conservative political resurgence.

The only other Virginia to make the list was House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, who came in at #50.

Topping the list are Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush and Ann Coulter. Check out the full list.

Hmmm. You failed to mention that the "Townhall" is a conservative publication. I wonder why many conservatives think that people who disagree with their ideology hate them. That attitude is unnecessarily divisive and provocative. It is also dismissive of any other idea or perspective.

Most of the hatred I see on a regular basis comes from conservatives and is directed at anyone and everyone who dares to disagree with them.

I disagree with most conservative ideology, but I do not hate anyone who embraces it.

Another example of the right's delusional paranoia.
It's a shame that think so little of their own leaders, that all they have to tout is how much they are perceived to be hated.

being hated is not something worth putting on a resume.

And Cuccinelli wasn't on this list?

kpharmer, surely you jest. Liberals are the most intolerant people on the planet. They are the ones who accuse Obama detractors as being racists, pro-lifers as being "radicals," and members of the tea party as "teabaggers." You are quite delusional if you think conservatives perpetuate hatred.

alan8228- and the right calling everyone to the left a socialist, baby-killing, communist is all about love and bunnies?

I clearly recall a fox news report on one of the first tea party events where participants were throwing tea bags around and calling themselves "teabaggers".
I laughed because clearly they didn't know the more common use of the term.
You can't blame the left for that one.

The left is the source of all Tyranny, misery, destruction, mass murder, and general hell on earth around the world and across history.

National Socialism: 6 Million Dead before WWII deaths.
Communism: 15 million dead in Russia (Lenin, Stalin, etc.), 20 million in Mao's China, and multiple generations suppressed since 1917.
Socialism: Millions suppressed.
Feudal Tyranny: work for the collective.
Liberals: Destroy the individual.

Thanks you Wacko Fringe Left wing Kooks for giving the Conservative movement it's mojo back.

The USA has liberated: Our Colonies, a group of Americans wrongfully denied their god given rights, Europe - two times, Communist Russia once (thanks to Ronaldus Maximus), Iraq, Afghanistan, Japan once, and all we have ever asked for in return is a place to bury our honored dead.

Do you think your honored Chairman Mao or Che were thinking about making people more free and protecting their rights as they killed all who opposed their Marxist Collectivist philosophy??
