Posted on 08/14/2009 6:20:22 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
For nearly one-out-of-three voters (32%), Jimmy Carter is the living ex-president who has done the best job since leaving the White House, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Carter, who served in the White House from 1977 to 1981, ranks first among the four surviving presidents. George W. Bush, who has only been out of office seven months, comes in last with nine percent (9%) support.
Bill Clinton, president from 1993 to 2001, made headlines again last week when he successfully brought two imprisoned U.S. women reporters home from North Korea. He is viewed by 29% as the ex-president who has performed best since stepping down as chief executive.

“Voters Say Carter Is Best of Living Ex-Presidents (Barf Alert!)”
Were did they poll; the Palestinian territories? Anyone know that the best of the ex-POTI right now is Clinton. Bush has not been “ex” long enough and Carter is as anti-American as they come.
He (Clinton) is viewed by 29% as the ex-president who has performed best since stepping down as chief executive.
I’ll buy that.
Well, It’s pretty clear the Rasmussen Report isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. Who’d they survey? The Carter family?
When Jimmy worked with Habitat for Humanity, he could have maybe qualified for this. When he started gracing our airwaves with his international perspecitives, he blew it.
I would guess this explains the present occupancy of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.?
Oh gosh, let me weigh in.
He’s the president I hope most gets a three day old egg salad sandwich. Once it’s been sitting out in the sun.
He GAVE us much of the crap sandwich.
Dumbest president until this one, who is going to set a few records.
I didn’t hear that both the Bushes and Clinton had died.
Thoughtless responses based upon current events that have Jimmy Carter’s name being repeated constantly, therefore name recognition without the association to the dripping wad of excrement associated with the name.
Same with Clinton, but associated with the saving of two Damsel’s in distress places him over even Shrek who rescued only one.
Ya ask Tinkerbell, and ya get these answers.
“Best job” at what? Being an asshole? He has my vote then.
It doesn’t surprise me at all the media always give little vignettes of Jimmuh and Habitat for Humanity and going overseas to oversee voting in third world countries, they don’t listen to what the Communist astard says and believes.
Oh yeah, he has constantly kept himself in the news too.
Does this includes voters who were either children or weren’t even alive during his Presidency?
If you prefer an ex-president who routinely undermines Republican policies, he is your hands down winner. If I had been Ronald Reagan, I would have invited him outside for an attitude adjustment.
That terrorist loving sonuvabitch is the very reason why Iran is in the hands of Islamofascists threatening the extinction of Israel, underwriting terrorists throughout the region and the world, and when the Buffoon from Georgia checks out, I already have the number one spot reserved for pissing on his damn grave, by God I intend to do it.
Just check my tagline.
We are getting a reminder of Carter right now. Bad policies, failures, double digit inflation and interest rates and double digit unemployment, not to mention shortages and national humiliation. Carter was a one term blunder, a lesson that should have been learned but wasn’t. That’s why we have 0 in the White House.
History will treat both much better.
But, since he insists on continuously running his mouth about all things under the sun, people will never forget.
Better to be thought a fool, than to open your mouth an confirm it.
because Carter never misses a photo op with Habitat for Humanity and Bubba never misses a chance to get his mug on TV. The Bushes on the other hand have wisely gone to ground, so as not to get in the way of the impending Obama implosion
I would love to know the ages of those polled. I bet those who gave Carter a favorable rating were not around or very young during his tenure.
This question is a little misleading because it says since leaving office. A lot of uninformed just see him associated with Habitat for Humanity since he left office. They forget all his embarrassing foreign trips (N. Korea springs to mind). I used to think Carter was the most incompetent while president, but King Barry has caused me to change that somewhat.
“That terrorist loving sonuvabitch”
Stop! Nuff said.
I’ll pee on his grave too.....after a six pack of Billy Beer.
CArter is one of the worst presidents EVER, and definitely the absolute WORST ex-president EVER. He is a fool, anti-Israel, anti-America, and does not know when to keep his pie-hole shut.
I guess none of those voters ever had the pleasure of waiting in those long gas lines.
Sorry, but H4H is just his personal Section 8 crusade. He has done worlds of damage in our home town with these sewers.
I like to tell this true story:
My 80 year old father had a stroke. He lost his speech for awhile and had some memory problems as well. He was rehabing at my sister’s home, so we often would sit in on his therapy sessions...the speech therapist was helping with speech and cognition.
Even though he was a man who had “lived” for sports, he would sometimes have trouble recalling 10 famous baseball players of the past, or 10 present football players, but the therapist kept pushing.
One session he asked my dad, “Name the best and worst president of your lifetime.” Without missing a beat my dad said, “Reagan, best; Carter, worst.” At that point we knew he was going to be okay!!!! He eventually fully recovered.
It’s all in how they phrased the question: “Do you think Jimmy Carter is better out of the whitehouse?”
Actually, the number seems to match those who strongly support bH0. That says a lot about mental illness in America and just how much statistical sauce is being added to make the Libtards look respectable in the polls.
I’m actually not that surprised. Carter is thought of as a humanitarian by many for his work with Habitat for Humanity and other causes. Far fewer are likely aware of his stances on specific issues and the implications of his post-Presidential diplomatic efforts (read: meddling) abroad.
“the living ex-president who has done the best job since leaving the White House,”
Maybe they thought the question was which ex-president did the best job BY LEAVING the White House...
That reminds me to ask, where did they bury the communist Walter Cronkite?
As much as I despise the Clinton Presidency, he has been a fairly good Ex, all things considered. Jimmy is an embarrassment to the nation. Other than building some houses in the past, he has been nothing but a complete douche bag in his involvement in world affairs.
In Moscow, next to Lenin’s tomb......between the hammer and sickle.
What parallel universe was this poll taken in?
carter couldn’t pour pi$$ out of a boot with the directions written on the heal.
Consider no one born 1965 or later had a drivers license during the Carter disaster.
A bitter old phony self-righteous nutcase who evidently wasn’t satisfied with the damage he did during his term of office.
I like retired presidents who actually retire.
Everyone here misses the point:
COMPARED TO HIS PRESIDENCY, Carter is the greatest retired President, ever.
On the other hand, the fact that apparently many people have never heard of the "Misery Index" created for the Carter Administration is sad. I'm thinking a 30-year white-washing by public education of the Carter years has rehabilitated him as much as possible.
If this is representative of Rasmussen polls, Obummer must REALLY be at a negative 90%.
Carter was the most incomptetent boob in my lifetime, and has repeatedly proven himself a traitor not only to the US but to logic itself.
Certifying Chavez’s election
LMAO at your tagline- priceless! LOL
What about all of the bad Obama pols from Ras? Now I wonder how accurate they are.
we have a couple h4h areas locally, probably more than I realize. and they seem decent. last time I drove thru in my 10-year old car with 130k miles on it, they almost all had newer/nicer cars than myself. ok, it is a volvo, not as bad as it sounds. but still...
I think they meant Carter is the President voters were happiest to see leave the White House.
People who aren't paying attention only know about the Habitat for Humanity thing, which I believe Carter got paid a lot of money for doing.
