Uhh, What do you mean is Obama's Carter moment "nearing"? I thought it came and went on election day.

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.

There isn't a name for it that has become part of popular culture.

Doesn't need one. "The BP Oil Spill"--you say it and everyone knows what you're talking about.

"They haven't built a popular new television program around it -- yet"

Not true, CNN 10pm-12pm EST.

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).

Barack Obama has not yet moved into the category of the late-night patsy that Jimmy Carter became...on the other hand Carter was never stupid enough to grandstand in front the nation insisting he was certainly in charge of all that was going on and would take care of everything for the country when in fact there's virtually nothing he can do about the situation - he'll hit that category soon....

He is talking about a tipping point. He is not there yet because of his skin tone and because most Americans are idiot sheep who watch TV and are brainwashed by TV including Fox/Saudia.

Most Americans will glady trade liberty and freedom for cable/sat TV and ball games.

I think we’ve had many “Carter Moments” over the past 18 months or so....

His Carter moment is nearing as far as the media is concerned. For normal people, it arrived a year ago last January.

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.

HELPLESS???? The US was NOT helpless. We just had an idiot as POTUS.

the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico that dominated television coverage and was into its second month with no quick solution in sight. * They haven't built a popular new television program around it -- yet.

Somebody is not paying attention. The video feed from the ROVs is the most engrossing thing to watch since the raw video out of Baghdad in 2003.

Obama, the MSM, and the Democrats are still celebrating shoving ObamaCare down the throats of the American people.

It was all based on lies, lies, and more lies. "Cost savings." "Better care." "Keep your own health plan." "Coverage for all Americans." "No rationing." "Reduces the deficit."

We all knew it was a lie, but then again, most of the people on this forum have an IQ way above 70 and are/or are not ideological Communists.

Obama-ding-dong preaches Government for everything. It gives him and his thugs more power, more adulation, and more vengeance against those they hate.

But, Government is very limited. There isn't a "Ministry of Oil Rig Explosion Fixers" out there - although many in the public think there is. Obama has made the situation much worse by his inaction, and by not allowing BP to burn off oil or use the type of chemical dispersant needed because of his slavish devotion and his party's to the environmentalist wack jobs.

Now we are supposed to believe that Obama and his minions, who can't control a single oil spill, are capable, responsible, and intellectually prepared enough to take over our nation's Heath Care?

Europe and Canada are exploring ABANDONING their grand Government Health Care Giveaway, and yet we are adopting it.

If the GOP gets even House in these elections, they need to shut down then entire United States government budget process until ObamaCare is killed - PERIOD!

Is President Obama's Carter Moment Nearing?

I think so.
Rumor has it that he's developed a Slice and now has the Yips when putting. Plus, he's starting to use a 1 Iron off the tee.

When all that happens, it's pretty much over for you.

This is when you know you are truly harpooned, when your problem has become someone else’s meal ticket.

and yet, somehow, the republicans will allow themselves to take the blame for it. Heck, by NOV, the repubs will be blaming themselves!

As one freeper stated in another thread, “they always manage to become the long black hair in the spaghetti.”

Right now, I don’t give a crap about the politics of this!
I want them to plug the damn hole!

“Obama keeps popping up in new settings, sounding as if he is in command, and he has refused to be confined to the White House as Carter was by the hostage crisis.”

Oh, and that is what a good leader of men is made of!

They are continuing to fondle Barry in hopes that HE will rise.

Yeah, new settings, like the golf course, a basketball court, a party with McCartney, fundraisers for Democrats ... he’s just really IN COMMAND!
