Ha ha ha! No, he's not dead.  Cheesy

This thread is meant to rip Jimmy Carter and his presidency. I was a year old when he got elected, so obviously I don't remember anything from his four-year term in the White House. All I keep hearing is what a horrible president he was. So for those who remember his time in office, I pose three questions:

1. Was he really worse than Obama?

2. What is his presidency primarily known for? (The Iranian hostage crisis?)

3. What was it about him that made him such a poor president?


1. Yes, he was
2. malaise.
3. His inability to control his brother Billy.

On assuming office in 1977, President Carter inherited an economy that was slowly emerging from a recession.

He had severely criticized former President Ford for his failures to control inflation and relieve unemployment, but after four years of the Carter presidency, both inflation and unemployment were considerably worse than at the time of his inauguration.

The annual inflation rate rose from 4.8% in 1976 to 6.8% in 1977, 9% in 1978, 11% in 1979, and hovered around 12% at the time of the 1980 election campaign. Although Carter had pledged to eliminate federal deficits, the deficit for the fiscal year 1979 totaled $27.7 billion, and that for 1980 was nearly $59 billion. With approximately 8 million people out of work, the unemployment rate had leveled off to a nationwide average of about 7.7% by the time of the election campaign, but it was considerably higher in some industrial states.

And continued on for years into Reagan admin when rates went to 18+%

Scandal for Carter? Are you kidding? That guy was about as squeaky clean as one can get. And Billy Beer didn't help him at all.

You know what I think started all this? It wasn't Watergate, Nixon clearly deserved to be donkey punched. It was Iran-Contra. Oliver North shredding documents, admitting to it while thumbing his nose at Congress and then getting off with a smack on the wrist started all this investigation madness.

Fcuking you

President Carter was one of our better presidents and has continued to show his wonderful character through his constant work for others through the homes provided and the millions of lives saved throughout his work to eradicate the guinea worm.
He is our grestest


Carter was a well intentioned fool and one of the most incompetent presidents of all time. But he was sincere..........

One way to slow inflation is to run interest rates so high that no one can afford to borrow

Interest rates under runnie exceeded the worst of the Carter years (largely brought on by the OPEC embargo and American oil company price gouging) for more than 6 years. Resulting job losses were salvaged in standard repug fashion when the Reagan admin changed the formula for calculating unemployment in 1982.

Carter was alright with keeping a high top marginal rate and that negatively impacted small business. Carter wasn't blameless but obviously Congress had something to do with it too since they write the tax law.
