Skip to comments.34 Months vs. 444 Days: There Jimmy Carter Goes Again, Blaming America for His Failures
Posted on 07/28/2004 6:20:24 AM PDT by Robert Tracinski
Those looking for "a virtually unbroken series of mistakes and miscalculations" might be tempted to remember, not the past 32 months, but the 444 days of the Iran hostage crisis, when Carter stood passive and paralyzed, his only attempt at action ending in a pathetically under-supported, doomed rescue mission. If one were to look for a moment at which America lost credibility and respect in the world, this would be it.

If we out here in the hinderland were not so stupid we could remember what it was like when he was in office.
I have never been able to understand Jimmy Carter's support of the ultra-liberals in his party, given that he is a Christian, and a Sunday School Teacher...a man that knows the Bible quite well..everything the libs in his party stand for, are quite the opposite of Christian teachings...also, not a very successful president..I also noted he was sitting next to Michael Moore the other night at the convention...I'm sure they had a "nice" visit.
HOW IN GOOD CONSCIENCE CAN THE DEMOCRATS SPEAK OF "DISHONESTY IN THE PRESIDENCY" WHILE AT THE SAME TIME PANDER TO BILL CLINTON THE GREATEST LIAR EVER????
Amen to that!!! Clinton should be in prison not on the lecture circuit!!
I remember a Carter term: "stagflation"
yeah...especially when Clinton was seen striding out of church with his Bible under his arm...and yes, Carter made no secret that he was a Christian...but let Dubya say anything about his faith, he's criticised by all the libs!
It was Carter that made me a conservative. I left home to run my own household in 1977, and I couldn't get a job, couldn't buy a house, and couldn't afford rapidly rising groceries.
His "malaise" speech will live in my memories, also. Us selfish Americans. Egads. Reagan swept in like a god. It was morning in America again.
We made a big mistake when the Iranians took the hostages. It should have been made clear to them that same day that unless our folks were on a plane at 0800 the next morning, Iran would cease to exist as a country. Then followed through. The Mahometan filth don't understand anything but death and destruction.
John Kerry = Jimmy Carter II BUMP
