You don't consider Iran hostages and turnover of Iran from friendly Shah to fanatic Imams damage?
Carter gave away Panama Canal in spite of Panamanians not wanting him to. Now redChina is on our southern doorstep, running the canal.
Carter never met a dictator he couldn't like (except those friendly to the US)or a dictator's wife he couldn't give a toothy grin and a compliment.
Carter handed Iran to terrorists by backing Khomeini rather than the Shah. We are still fighting them.
He was awful, very destructive.
Don't hold back; tell us how you really feel! :-)
Oh, really? Arming the Taliban?
Carter is rolling in his formaldehyde. ..
He was the only American president who was a "lifelong bachelor." See a pattern?
Wealthy old leftys seem to grind on forever...90 yrs old last month...
Carter tried his hardest to not allow the Shah to come to the US for medical treatment. President Nixon probably had a lot to do with convincing Carter to let him come.
Nevertheless, the Shah wasn't allowed to stay in America and probably would have turned him over during the Hostage Crisis.
What a gift obama is.
I see what you did there...
1. Barack Obama
2. Lyndon Johnson
3. Franklin Roosevelt
4. Woodrow Wilson
5. Jimmy Carter
“carter didnt do any permanant damage.”
I don’t care if it was permanent. I liver through that crap, it sucked, he gets on the list.
Besides he’s responsible for Iran being a problem and at least partially responsible for the current situation in Israel.
That is just off the top of my head in less than 60 seconds.
I was stationed at Barksdale AFB, LA when that idiot was elected. I was sitting in Pugey’s Bar watching the returns come in. When Mississippi put him over the place went crazy. Everybody in the bar but me and a couple of my GI buddies had voted for this idiot. The reason? He was a “Christian man” from the South and he would bring back honor to the White House after the Nixon years. The longer I stayed in the bar the drunker I got. Ended up cussing out a few of the Carter supporters and was told to leave Pugey’s and never come back. What pissed me off was I was also a Southerner and knew this buck tooth idiot was just another liberal democrat that was only elected because of Watergate. Nixon had more intelligence in his big toe than Carter had in his empty head. And, what a lot of people don’t realize is even after Watergate Ford should have won that election. It was that close. The pardon is the reason he was defeated by the clueless peanut farmer. Oh, and I did go back to Pugey’s because she liked me!
Canada where I live is a socialist wasteland, but still we don't match the pure evil of the US Presidents the US has suffered under. Something has gone wrong, but I don't know what it is. Is it a sign that Federalism has failed? Were the founders wrong in wanting an Executive?
Curious about Buchanan. Perhaps he was right not to go to war. After all, all the progress of the Civil War was undone by the Jim Crow laws and racist Democratic political dominance in the South. Unless I am reading this wrong.
Carter is STILL stoking the fires of Islamonazi terrorism and imperialism.
Are you serious? The corruption stuff is basically revisionist history by liberals. I regard Harding as one of the best, massively reducing the scope of government. Personally he was abominable, being a philanderer who paid for an abortion, but as President he was great.
Once you say that saving the Union was important, you have to admit that merely delaying the Civil War was important because the economy of the North was growing so much faster than that of the South.
If the South had seceded in 1850 the North wouldnt have had the logistic capability to defeat the secession, and might have realized it (or quickly been taught it) and come to a modus vivendi with it.
In a certain sense just doing nothing in the 1850s was success.
