He’s worse than Carter and he’s already passed that point. Tie him to every RAT running in November; he’s an anchor.

This is just Broder fantasizing that things aren’t as bad for his side as they might be, and that people really aren’t saying, “Carter II.”

Sad, really.

I was thinking back to when another Democratic president, Jimmy Carter, found himself stymied in another seemingly endless ordeal. Iranian militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979 and held 52 officials and workers hostage for 444 days, while the United States was helpless to free them.

Uh, Iranian muzzie militants have been holding three American BACKPACKERS hostage since last July and are suggesting they could be swapped for Iranian TERRORISTS incarcerated in the US.

I guess their parents must be retarded, or Democrats, because they don't seem to care that Obama is doing NOTHING to gain their release.

I gotta admit I would prefer to see them held until President Palin forces their release myself. The parents would be forced to say thank you on camera. I can hardly wait until they spit those 'thank yous' out.

Just how stupid did the kids have to be to be backpacking where they did?

In a cabinet meeting discussing the Iranian hostage rescue mission, 3P(Plains Peanut Panderer) asked that the rescue be implemented in a way that doesn’t harm any Iranians. Obama made a similar request saying he didn’t want any fish in the gulf to get hurt.

We don't have a hostage crisis. Yet.

The difference between a Carter hostage crisis and a BO hostage crisis is that BO would side with the captors.

Personally, I think Obama is already worse than Carter.

Carter was a weak leader and made many bad decisions, but he at least tried to lead the country and he did have some small successes - the Egypt-Israel peace treaty, a slight reduction of debt as % of GDP, sending Harold Denton to Three Mile Island. Carter was also a key force behind the deregulation of the airline industry, which led to enormous benefits in the 1980s under President Reagan.

Obama has done none of that. He’s antagonized Israel for no purpose, debt is higher than at anytime in our nation’s history, and he has completely fumbled the BP oil spill. And he’s only halfway through his term. And frankly, I think Obama’s idea of leadership begins and ends with implementing his agenda.

It's much deeper than that. Right about now, Jimmy Carter is cackling with glee over the fact that, as of now, he is guaranteed to not go down in history as the weakest, worst American president ever.

Obama keeps popping up in new settings, sounding as if he is in command . . .

David, the Dean of Washington Journalists, going senile? Obama was singing along with "Hey Jude" last night. Friday morning he is campaigning at a truck dealership, meeting with a soccer team, flying down to the gulf for a few hours to talk to somebody or other about the spill I guess, then flying back to D.C. Last weekend he spent partying in Chicago. One venue was across the street from Farrakhan's operation.

Oh..and his wife...in the morning she kicks off a "Chefs Move to Schools" program. She's flying in top chefs from Chicago to advise on revamping school lunches.

I think Jimmy still wins worst, by default, Obama is not even trying to be a president. He’s more like a party animal living in the white house, not a president. At least Jimmy tried (and failed).
