President Selfie is 111th Most Influential Person in History

Jesus is most famous person in history ... and President Selfie is only 111th, according to internet searches. (The Evil George Bush is 36th.)

Who'da thunk it? Not to say that this ranking shouldn't be taken with a grain of salt. For example, George Bush ranks (pun intended, for my BDS friends) higher than Sir Winston Churchill (whose bust Obama removed from the Oval Office). One could argue whether George Bush saved the world, but there is no such argument about Sir Winston. Ronald Reagan, certainly one of our greatest presidents, and Charles Dickens both beat out the Apostle Paul. News flash! The Apostle Paul is one of the reasons why Jesus was #1! As much as I love Reagan (or Dickens), the Apostle Paul has been read by more people, and influenced more than both of them combined.

John Kennedy (71) beats Obama - that's a no brainer. But, for fans of President Selfie, consider that both Richard Nixon (82), and Robert E. Lee (76) beat out Obama, too.

Grover Cleveland (98), beats Obama by 13, yet, I can't think of a single accomplishment during his time in office. Oh. Yeah. Right!

Also interesting, is that if you take the standings of Mohammed (3), Hitler (7) Karl Marx (14), Stalin (18), Louis the XIV (26) and FDR (43), they all add up to 111. Coincidence??? Hardly!
