Skip to comments.The Carter-Obama Comparisons Grow (Walter Mondale himself sees a parallel)
Posted on 09/21/2010 8:28:25 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Comparisons between the Obama White House and the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter are increasingly being madeand by Democrats.
Walter Mondale, Mr. Carter's vice president, told The New Yorker this week that anxious and angry voters in the late 1970s "just turned against ussame as with Obama." As the polls turned against his administration, Mr. Mondale recalled that Mr. Carter "began to lose confidence in his ability to move the public." Democrats on Capitol Hill are now saying this is happening to Mr. Obama.
Mr. Mondale says it's time for the president "to get rid of those teleprompters and connect" with voters. Another of Mr. Obama's clear errors has been to turn over the drafting of key legislation to the Democratic Congress: "That doesn't work even when you own Congress," he said. "You have to ride 'em."

Carter he was at least a seaman in the nuclear navy obama what did he do o yeah party planner or organizer some chit
Take away the teleprompter and you get uhhhh...ahhhhh....raise taxes, more government...ahhhh..uhhhh....
Don’t think that will work.
I said back before the election that Obama would make Carter look like a good president.....(Shudder)
At least it looked like Carter knew how to use a shovel I doubt that BO has ever held one before that photo op.
but... but.... we elected a Totus
Is the Ebotus the next in succession? (Ear bud)
Walter Mon-dull agrees.
If only it were simply a cycle we were in.
When he was younger Obama was a semen in a submarine race.
I was relatively young (and therefor by definition not interested in politics) but I dont seem to recall Jimma blaming all his problems on Ford
You know it’s bad when Mondale is offering advice...
Now That Is Racist! Carter shoveling peanuts and 0bama shoveling sh*t!
Hey I waiting for the Bubba Clinton sign “Miss me yet” to appear.
He tried connecting recently in a Town Hall style meeting where one of his supporters, a “middle-class black woman”, told him point blank (and I’m paraphrasing) that she is “exhausted” with trying to defend him and that she wants to see the meaningful kind of change she voted for. So dropping the teleprompters isn’t going to help, only governing to the will of the People will help and I’m afraid it’s not within this President’s capability to do so.
It’s funny how the liberals keep thinking it is just his presentation is off. It never occurs to them that the people just don’t like his politics and policies now matter how they are marketed. Liberals just do not fathom that people do not want Marxist policies. Would you rather stand in a government soup line for your needs or get them from a vibrant free market economy? The liberals assume the people want the soup line (What’s a matter with Kansas?).
This November it will be de je vu all over again.
Or for the red diaper doper babies like Obama it will be nasty LSD flash backs.
The other observation Mondull missed is he and Biden. Both were unelectable blowhards for president.
I enjoy that this idiot actually thinks he sees a parallel between rotten presidents doing irresponsible things angering the voters and those voters turning against said president like it is something new. How novel.
Now who was Carter’s Larry Sinclair?
My tagline says it all.
