Thirty years after Jimmy Carter's malaise speech, we return to the days of rising joblessness, an unresponsive economy, deference to dictators, gutting the military and an energy policy tilting at windmills... As history repeats itself on the anniversary of the speech MSNBC's Chris Matthews wrote, we wonder if the "Hardball" host, who has worked for four Democratic politicians, is still getting tingles up his legs. The Democratic Party apparently has learned nothing in the past three decades. Will we see a return of the misery index? The only thing that's different is the sweater.

Welcome back Carter
Welcome back, your stagflation got you kicked out,
Welcome back to that same old country that you dragged down,
Well the names have all changed since you brought us down,
But your ideas have remained, as long as Barrys around,
Whod have thought wed get ya (Whod have thought wed get ya)
Back after Reagan kicked you out (After Reagan kicked you out)
Yeah we thought we were free cause you were gone from the scene,
But welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
The stole the name from the season premiere of "Eureka". Isn't anybody original anymore?

Carter (as I remember him) was merely incompetent.
I fear Baraq is much, much worse.....
pray for gridlock in 2010.
Actually Carter’s 7% unemployment sounds great about now.
