Installments will cover the economy, foreign policy, human rights, dealing with dictators, fighting Communism and the Democratic leadership in general during times of war.
FRmail me if you want on or off the 'Jimah Carter The Incompetent' Ping List.
If he was tried for his real crimes ... national security arena ... rather than sex and perjury, it would be a much different story. Another lesson in the GOP caving to the Dems.
This says it all.
Thanks for the post. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Carter is better at fighting rabbits than Bush.
Carter also sees flying saucers better.
I am not torn. President Carter was the worst President in History!!!!!! I will stand by that til my dying day. There was NOTHING good at all during his Presidency!!! President Clinton at least had some highlights (I know you won’t agree, but I stand by Carter being the worst!!!!).
This is so revealing that Carter was doing things in the 70's that didn't work and that liberals are proposing the SAME DAMN THING: "import quotas, windfall profits taxes and increased spending on alternative fuels to combat higher oil prices charged by OPEC." I wonder how people will like it when there are gas shortages because gas stations won't sell at a loss. Just like the freakin' 70's.
What do you mean there was nothing good during his presidency...the marijuana trade exploded under Carter ;-)
But seriously it was precisely because of his weakness that we are in the mess we’re in.
I second that! Clinton may have committed adultery with others; Carter said he did adultery in his own mind. Yes, Carter was always f*k'n himself up! I hated him and those 4 years he was president.
In retrospect and having watched Carter lowering himself further and further in a desperate attempt to be relevant, I can clearly see that he has been one mean incompetent little chit right from the start.
Clinton wasn’t close.
Jimmuh was the worst foreign policy President of modern times, LBJ the worst domestic policy President. It’s a toss up which was worse, overall.
I, too, used to think Carter was well-meaning but stupid. I’m in your camp, now.
Another Carter disaster I just remembered.
Castro cleared out his prisons and sent them to us.
That was my take also. He was too nice to step on anyone's toes, leading to indecision.
But he really is a nasty little man.
The highlight of his Presidency was following the escapades of his brother Billy.
Then I remember just who he (Billy) was riding around with when he stopped the limo for a leak. Seems even back then, the Carters were in bed with the Saudis.
I still put Clinton ahead as worst President.
Giving away missle secrets significantly contributes to a future problem that is bigger than Islamic fundamentalism.
Clinton did nothing...NOTHING...to stop Al Qaeada or Bin Laden. His apathy was a significant contributor to 9/11.
He allowed the UN “Food-for-Oil” fiasco to continue without restriction.
I also suspect that the FBI files issue influences a lot of the unusual political decisions we see today (like, Senator Kyl supporting amnesty?!).
Don’t dilute the seriousness of perjury and obstruction of justice - these were serious crimes. People in the Bush administration are being forced to resign for far far less serious infractions of judgement.
His presidency may very well give us Hillary as President; there is no way that she would win if she wasn’t a Clinton.
He had 8 years of prosperity that was handed to him by prior Republican management of the economy...and did nothing with it. His only significant accomplishment (welfare reform) was a Republican initiative that he rejected twice before being faced with a veto override.
And yes, the sex thing was an embarassment.
Carter was a classic example of the Peter Principle.
He rose to the level of his incompetence.
And then we had the press trying to canonize his mother, Lillian.
I always thought of Lillian as fairly honest, in that she took a look at what she had begot and promptly took to drinking herself into oblivion every day.
