Jimmy Carter's ghost stalks Obama White House
FOXNews.com ^ | 8/5/2013 | Liz Peek

Posted on 08/06/2013 4:08:21 AM PDT by NCDragon

Vague terrorist threats shutting down nineteen of our embassies, Russian strongman Putin thumbing his nose at President Obama, Iran jerking our chain – the U.S. hasn’t looked this cowardly on the world stage since the Jimmy Carter administration.

Here at home, too, we’ve gone back to the Carter future; unemployment is high, Keynesian economics are all the rage, our professorial president is increasingly whiny and ineffectual; all that’s missing is a cardigan sweater and that infernal violin.

Our recent contre-temps with Russia is a throw-back to the weak-kneed Carter era. President Vladimir Putin has granted temporary asylum to NSA leaker and fugitive Edward Snowden, despite frantic efforts by the White House to take the traitor into custody.

Mr. Obama is said to be livid; after all, he has pursued a chummy relationship with Putin for years.

At least, Carter was an American, so there was
something of America to recover.

The treason of the undocumented pRes_ _ent has gone
light years beyond that.

Because of the inept, greedy, treasonous,
thieving, docile US Congress that abhors
the US Constitution and the "little people"
and wants its imposed laws to ONLY be for others,
it may be too late.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan

“Yes Mr President, regarding Edward Snowden, how much am I offered for his return? Surely you don’t expect his return without paying a price” purred Putin

What difference does it make? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the similarities. What matters is the fact that Obama is an idiot, a tyrant, a murderer and a traitor. WORST POTUS EVER and NO ONE is doing anything to impeach the SOB.

Putin must be hugging himself over how this is working out.

If America's enemies can't get it all their own way NOW with the idiot we have in the WH, they never will.

I am surprised that more of our enemies have not challenged us and over MUCH more significant things than this!!

With the fop of the millennium in office, with America adrift and vulnerable, it is incredible that nothing worse has happened to us.

You are right. Carter was terrible, but Carter wouldn’t make a pimple on this creeps buttocks.

This guy has set America’s race relations back 100 years, destroyed our economy and made us a laughing stock.
people are out of work and students are in debt for Billions. The best health care in the history of the world is about to go down the toilet, and we are being invaded by people coming for the entitlements we cannot afford to give.

We watch as our service men are set up and killed and all we do is replace genuine heroes with queers and women.

Obama is implementing Carter’s former National Security Advisor’s policies: Zbig Brezhinsky, he is the main culprit for both Carter and Obama’s bumbling of Foreign Policy.

Great piece! Putin dispises Obama and most of the world see him for what he is—a man out of his league. We can blame the Media, Oprah, and Yes, Hillary for geting him in the white house. the GOP have been his helpers—only the Tea Party and Glen Beck have opposed Obama and his minions. And what did they get? Obama has the IRS mute the Tea Party, and his MSM friend slander them and cast them as a new KKK. Glen Beck was fired and forced to labor in the wilderness of Cyberspace and the radio waves. But, as the truth comes out—the day will come when Obama will be the most hated man in America.

I totally agree I pray though that Obama’s ego and arrogance does not get in the way of stepping down after his term. I fear his thugs will be working overnight to keep him in power.

According to my demented liberal relatives everything is the fault of Bush, GOP Congress members and corperate fat cats.

They didn’t drink the Koolaid. They mainlined it.

I was about to put some water proofing on my boots so I could “pay my respects” at this gravesite.

When the time comes, I hope he’s buried with adequate drainage.

Glen Beck was fired and forced to labor in the wilderness of Cyberspace and the radio waves.

Nice sentiment, but not true. Beck had bigger dreams and being on another TV station was holding him back.

He is building radio, TV networks, book publishing, journalism and who knows what else for the day they try to stop him here and there, he will be everywhere, somewhere else.

But I'm pretty sure he wasn't fired.
