“Just a Good Guy…With a Few Bad Habits”

The Worst President?

with 4 comments

Last Friday, in a case of the pot calling the kettle black–if you could call President Bush the “kettle”, which you can’t– former President Jimmy Carter stated that the present administration is the worst in history. Before President Peanut thinks everyone has forgotten his “enlightened” administration, or the “effective” foreign policy work he has conducted since being turned out of office, let’s take a look at some of his greatest hits: 

The Carter administration brought us 16% inflation, and unemployment rates nearly double what they are today. In the face of OPEC production cuts, Carter placed crippling restrictions on domestic oil production. The Carter administration also saw fit to raise interest rates to unheard of levels (20%) in an attempt to tame inflation. An attempt that only succeeded in killing the housing market in this country. And those are just a few of the more glaring economic examples.

On the foreign policy front, Carter was equally successful (I hope the sarcasm is coming through loud and clear here). Carter oversaw the installation of the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran, we all know what a boon an Islamic Fundamentalist government in Iran has been to the United States. And who could forget his adept handling of the hostage crisis? A foreign government kidnaps 52 Americans, holds them hostage for 444 days, and all this effete little man could muster in response was a lot of talk and a failed “rescue” attempt.

Carter likes to style himself a champion of human rights, but saw fit to praise Yugoslavian dictator Josef Broz Tito as “…a man who believes in human rights,” and “…a world leader who has led his people and protected their freedom almost for the last 40 years.” That’s right, that Tito, the communist Tito. Carter’s affinity for totalitarian regimes is well documented.

Since being shown the door by the American people, Carter has sought, whenever possible, to undermine American foreign policy. During the run up to “Gulf War Won,” Carter conducted back channel diplomacy by writing to the heads of state of all permanent members of the UN Security council, urging them to drop their support of a military solution to remove Saddam Hussein from Kuwait, and asking that they oppose any military action. Had they followed Carter’s sage advice, Hussein would still be robbing, raping, and pillaging Kuwait, and most likely Saudi Arabia, instead of having gone on to his just reward.

Carter showed his skill as a negotiator when Bubba sent him to deal with the North Korean communists. What did his efforts bring? Oh yes, a North Korea on the verge of aquiring NUCLEAR WEAPONS! Enriching urainium with reactors supplied by who? Why the good ole U.S of A, of course. Good goin’ there Jimmy, you are one smooth operator. 

So, Mr. Carter, before you go “pointin’ the dirty end of the stick” at anyone else, remember there are still plenty of us alive who haven’t forgotten your woeful performance as President, and your ineffectual, nearly treasonous actions as an official representative and private citizen of The United States, and we aren’t about to let you forget either.

  4. Well, I used to live in “totalitarian” Yugoslavia and now I live in United States. Well, by far, life in that Yugoslavia was much better that here in US. It can’t even be compared. Over here I have to kill myself working to survive, and over there there was a healthy balance of work and life in general. It was totally free society (maybe not the period from end of world war 2 to maybe 1955) and life was the way life should be (enjoyable, fun, healthy, smart, pride, honor, loved, better food, better schools (free education), free health care, very low taxes, no overtime, guarantied one month vacation, almost guarantied job, FREE SOCIETY (you don’t have to worry if someone is watching you), beautiful, beautiful land, no greed, no wall street, no need to buy land). That was Yugoslavia. But in this shit hole called USA, there is only work and work and even more work to make 1% of population happy. Depression, anxiety and other mental diseases were not very much present in former Yugoslavia. Over here, crazy is good, and nice is bad. I lived in both systems, and it’s just not in the same category. Also, TITO was accepted everywhere and everybody respected him (mostly for what he did to Germans in world war 2 and to Russians in 1948 (that small communistic country of Yugoslavia, told Stalin to fuck off and keep his hands of Yugoslavia). There are many more things to say about this (I could write a book), but I just wanted to let you know about real, honest view of former Yugoslavia. Of course, TITO made some mistakes for not preparing any successors after he died, so the whole region plunged into the civil war, that was very much supported by USA and Europe. I guess, so much about your view of “totalitarian regimes”.
