    I didn't vote for Carter but I respect him.
    Carter made a fatal mistake. He took on Tip O'Neal and the north eastern liberals. They black balled him for it and nothing got done. One has to only look at the next convention to see the under handed tactics they did to try and get Teddy as the nominee when Carter won all the primaries.
    Obama and Carter? No comparison at all. Totally different Presidents.
    Too early to tell. Give it another 2 years.

    Not too sure why you are comparing him to Carter. The worst president in my life time (born during LBJ) is Bush II by quite a considerable margin...followed by Raygun....

    Worse indeed. Carter, while good at pouting, wasn't good at hardball. Obama is, though looks like the time of effectiveness is on the wan.

    Yes, he is. I used to think that Jimmy Carter was the worst President that the US has ever had but Owe Bama has him beat hands down.

    His numbers in some areas are not as bad as Carter's but his debt alone probably tips the scales in his favor as being worse.
