    It's hard to peg Carter. In the heart of hearts he's a good man, but he never ever should have become President.

    The tales of his micro managing are unreal. Russia is invading Afghanistan and ol Jimmeh is scheduling the tennis tournaments at the White House. YOWZAH!

    He's gotten one thing right over the years. You have to have voter ID before the Carter Foundation will come in and monitor an election in any foreign country. To prevent fraud.

    :D

    I'm down with the Jimmeh on this one.

    I don't like fast-track presidents.

    From FDR.

    FDR paid his dues.

    So did Truman.

    So did Ike.

    So did JFK.

    Much

    as I dislike th SOB - sp di d LBJ,

    So did Nixon.

    So didFord.









    Then Carter - a gov from a small state nobody heard of.

    Reagan paid his dues.

    So did George HW Bush.

    Clinton - a nobody gov from a small state - not...

    Much as it pains me to say this - George W Bush - a ceremonial gov - NOT (I still voted for because I despired Gores arrogance in 2000)

    Obama - NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT

    Romney - paid his dues.....................

    Hmmmm, according to your barometer, Lincoln didn't. Mitt's running mate, Ryan, hasn't. How has Romney "paid his dues"? He is a former one term Governor. President Obama has more overall legislative experience than Willard. How does Bush I make your list, but Carter does not? Nobody ever heard of the state of Georgia? WTF?
