    Ryan says Jimmy Carter era was better than Obama's | General Headlines | Comcast

    Paul Ryan delivered a scathing criticism of President Barack Obama's stewardship of the nation's economy Monday, arguing that even conservative punching bag Jimmy Carter's presidency was better as Democrats streamed to North Carolina to nominate Obama for a second term.

    "The president can say a lot of things and he will," the Republican vice presidential candidate told more than 2,000 supporters in East Carolina University's student recreation center, about 230 miles east of the Democratic National Convention site in Charlotte. "But he can't tell you that you're better off. Simply put, the Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are right now."

    Sad but true, obama has done nothing in 4 years except create hardship on millions, Ryan was was right on to kick his dick int the dirt and step on it.....:eusa_clap:

    I agree. Carter was bad, but didn't permanently damage the country. At least he showed some respect for our constitution. Obama's policies have all gone against the constitution. His czars have unlimited power and usurp congress at every turn.

    Undoing the damage from Obamacare will be difficult, but can be and will be done eventually.

    The thing that will be the most difficult is getting more people off the doles and into a life of independence since too many know no other way of life.

    No question about it.

    Carter didn't have anywhere near the unemployment.

    It's true in some respects. Then again, the Carter era was better than Reagan and both Bushs in those same respects.

    Based on what? Unemployment Bush didn't have a single above 7% month until the last few. Most of his term was between 4.5-6%. Some area's I'll agree.

    I was referring to median income, which increased while Carter was in office, but has been on constant decline since (except for a couple of years in the late 90s).

    I lived through the Carter years and had voted for him. I voted for Reagan the next time. Those years were very bad. Interests rates (inflation) so high no one could buy a home or much of anything and the Iran hostage crisis consumed most of Carter's energy. He gave back the Panama canal which was a mistake and many other disastrous things. He boycotted the US summer olympics also.

    2,000? I read that there were "hundreds" at this rally, but read that a rally about 3,000 for Biden was "thousands". Ha.. Funny how the media plays things.

    Everybody remembers the ages of 6-10 as good years.

    Of course Ryan looks back on that time in his childhood fondly.
