Which should be the takeaway quote to this anti-Obama screed?

Should it be:

Barack Obama has now, in just a year’s time, become the single most inept president perhaps in all of American history, and certainly in my lifetime.

Or should it be:

Of course, I don’t give a [expletive deleted] about Barack Obama anymore, other than my desire that really ugly things happen to him as payment in kind for the grandest act of betrayal we’ve seen since Benedict Arnold did his thing.

The first is inaccurate (we still have a ways to go before James Buchanan, Warren Harding, and/or Jimmie Carter), while the second is frankly vile (if you want the President dead, just come out and say so so that the United States Secret Service can get on with investigating you to a fare-thee-well). So it’s hard to categorize which is more representative of the idiocy which is this article…

PS: What? Oh, sorry: the quotes are from a piece by Lefty professor David Michael Green, for CommonDreams.org. Via Newsbusters, via Instapundit.

PPS: Professor Green: the Charge of the Light Brigade consisted of several hundred men who actually managed to accomplish their primary purpose, despite taking almost 50% casualties. For comparison, the Battle of the Crater lost us nearly 3,800 troops in a single afternoon, with absolutely no result. Of course, the first set of military victims were mostly white British, while the second set were mostly African-Americans fighting for a government run by the Republican party; so it’s entirely possible that you think that the latter group had it coming.
