    McGurn: They Once Loved Jimmy, Too - WSJ.com

    In a polarized nation, on the eve of another divisive contest for the White House, those seeking a unified America are not without hope. For amid the partisan bickering, there remains one principle on which all Americans are agreed: Any comparison to Jimmy Carter is always and everywhere a put-down.

    Given Mr. Carter's Democratic affiliation, it's mostly Republicans and conservatives who traffic in Jimmy Carter allusions. That makes for something of a yawn, as Mitt Romney is finding out with his claim that the community organizer from Chicago is worse than the peanut farmer from Georgia. More in the man-bites-dog category is when one of Mr. Obama's own sticks the Carter tag on him.

    So it must have stung when the New York Times's Maureen Dowd recently quoted an unnamed Democratic senator moaning that "we are watching him turn into Jimmy Carter right before our eyes."

    Thank you and so true, the three things that Carter and Obama have in common is that they are both inept and incompetent, they both have high IQ's and they both are Nobel Peace Prize winners. We will send Obama down to Mexico to help Carter build some houses there in 2012.:lol:

    Barry ain't as smart as Jimmie was and he doesn't have nearly as much political fortitude but he is slicker and he has the desperate media on his side. Jimmie Carter had his brother Billy as comedy relief but Barry calls the woman who raised him a racist so there ain't much comedy relief there. Barry's father was an alcoholic bigimist and that's not much to laugh about. All in all Carter was an honest fool who led us down the path to disaster but Barry is a sleazy dishonest slickster with media support and a band of radical reolutionaries who would do anything to get him reelected and he is far more dangerous.

    Both great men. Carter had bad luck- the Iran Hostage crisis killed him, along with Teddy and the Dems- he wanted austerity, a la Raygun (nobody knows that). Obama knows D.C. much better. Will go down as great if he can get reelected. Today's GOP is a total BS nightmare...

    Exactly.

    Barry Obolshevik ain't even that.....He's a spoiled rotten little manchild, with a major chip on his shoulder.

    Whereas Carter was merely incompetent, Little Lord Obammyroy is a blind ideologue who didn't get the memo that the 60s' hippies and bums lost.
