    Jimmy Carter should keep his mouth shut. Let's see how he responded to terrorism in the late 70's when Iran became the worlds first Islamic state. He turned his back on an old friend the Shiah of Iran. He allowed over 50 Americans to be taken hostage and kept for over a year as radicals took over the American embassy. His response was to send two helicopters to rescue the hostages which crashed in the dessert. The state sponsored taking of hostages is an act of war. If we would have invaded Iran I doubt if we would be dealing with this world terrorism.

    What can you say about a man who has ensured only one Dem president has held office since he disgraced the Presidency? Jimmy has got to be in the top 5 of the worst Presidents of all time, IMO.

    Now that his buddy from the Hostage Crisis in 79 is President of Iran, I guess he felt compelled to run his suck.

    What I find most interesting, historically speaking, I think he is the only president that has first been perceived BETTER after his presidency than during it; only to turn around and wreck that subsequent improvement to his legacy.

    I'd currently rate his as the 2nd or 3rd worse presidency, likely to fall further in the future.

    He was at least the second worst President of the 20th century. Perhaps Herbert Hoover was the worst. After his presidency Jimmy started Habitat for Humanity which I thought was a unique and noble thing for a former president to do. Now he is becoming Castros buddy and critizing our current president, in effect ruining all respect I had for him.

    Hoover wasn't as bad as Carter, IMO. Grant certainly came close, perhaps even surpassed in substance-hard to tell yet.

    More than anything else, Carter destroyed the DNC by pulling the rug out from under the moderates and handing their votes to the Republican party.
