    What a national disgrace Carter is. Nothing could blacken America's reputation more than this endless pontificating from an ex-Pres. to the foreign press. One of the greatest mistakes ever made by this country was sending that buffoon to the White House.

    Carter: Sympathy for The Devil
    By David Limbaugh
    August 17, 2006

    Want to know where the Democratic Party stands and where America would be under their leadership? Just ask Jimmy Carter.

    President Peanut is a great example of the modern Democrat party.

    Only with the Dems, can someone be a total failure and be elevated to hero status.

    I lived thru his four years as President.

    Double digit unemployment, double digit inflation, and double digit interest rates.

    Morgage rates near 20%

    Amercian hostages held for 444 days in Iran. His answer to the hostage crisis? A bungled rescue attempt where the bodies of our troops were left in the desert.

    Gas prices doubled and gas lines. Carter's answer to the energy problem? He wears a sweater and tells America to turn down the thermostat.

    Carter is a perfect wake-up call for Americans, just as Clinton was. In both cases, the only two Dem's to hold the Presidency since 1968 were elected by the disgruntled moderate vote not happy with the status quo. And in both cases, look what we got .... worse than what we had.

    At the rate we're going, it'll happen again.

    I do not think it applies to Republicans.

    I ask all Republicans who are not happy with the current makeup in Congress the following:

    Do you want Nancy Perosi to be third in line for president?

    Do you want John Conyers to be able to start impeachment proceedings?

    Do you want Charlie Rangel to head up the Ways and Means Committee?

    Do you want Sen Kennedy to decide which Judges get confirmed?

    Do you want Sen Reid as Majority leader and setting foreign policy?

    If so, stay home and not vote

    Oh, ITA. I doubt they'll learn it. It cost them the election in 92 when disgruntled Republicans voted for Perot.

    What I don't get is the shortsightedness. The mentality of I'm mad at you so I either won't vote, or I'll vote for the other guy, without any thought being given to the long-term consequence of that action.

    IMO, the true moderate vote ("true" as opposed to those who claim to be moderate; which, is just about every lib) is the swing vote. They determine the outcome. Unfortunately, they are teh ones who suffer most from the aforementioned shortsightedness.

    Having read Mr. Limbaugh's piece, I find nothing more than a diatribe against a man who beleives in the values this nation was founded upon, namely, the rule of law and the America's heritage of not engaging in needless wars of aggression. Mr. Limbaugh's essay had the tone of an embittered man who feels that life has somehow cheated him of his rightful place.

    I would suggest you actually read Mr. Carter's book "<i>Our Endangered Values</i>" before you summarily pass judgement on it. You might actually learn something useful.

    The only thing Carter knows how to do is grow peanuts. Other then that, he is a total failure.

    His four years were so bad, the Misery Index was created to show how bad the US economy was doing.

    Not to mention his total failure to confront terrorists.

    A telling response .... attack the author.

    I'll pass on the book. I already suffered through his Presidency. More than any other former President, Carter has actively interfered in international politics and criticized the standing President.

    Your boy is THE one that took the Dem party to the extreme left. He's an unrealistic, tree-hugging leftwingnut kook.

    Libs rant how bad the economy is today. What would they about Carter's economy?

    The Prime rate in November of 1980 (when he was thrown out of office) was 17.00%

    When he Carter office is was 7.00%

    The inflation rate when Carter left office was 14.73%

    The inflation rate when Carter took office was 4.88%
