    I knew this was coming and now I am hearing this on the news. President Carter has the worst President in history reputation and now the news media is calling it the Carterization of Obama.

    I wonder how President Carter feels about being de-throned from his first place position in this category??:lol:

    It's about time they realized this, I did the minute he signed the 787 billion dollar stimulus plan that felll flat on it's face the micute it left the gate. About time.:clap2::clap2

    The presidential approval rating ceiling doesn’t have to be raised, but the floor might need to be lowered soon.

    Yep--this country invented the misery index during the Jimmy Carter administration--I imagine it won't be long before we have the Obama misery index too.

    The only person in this nation (according to polling data) that can lose a race against (no-name) is Barack Obama--:lol:

    I don't even think Jimmy Carter held that title.--:lol:

    You might get an argument from a liberal on this.
    Fasten your seatbelt.

    What do a peanut farmer and a community organizer have in common?
    Evidently, everything.

    I think he is worse than Carter. Carter had heart- he was and still is a "true believer". Carter's policies were wrong, he was a total failure as a President, but at least you know he cared. He still cares- in all the wrong ways! But he is clearly passionate about his beliefs. I disagree with Carter, I think he was a terrible president, but I respect the MAN because of the kind of person he is. I cannot say the same about Obama.

    Obama is cold, uncaring, and dispassionate. It's as if he's only doing the job for the pension....

    I believe you should run for president so everyone can make crass statements about you also.

    I never believed Carter to be a socialist--he sure didn't use the rich vs. the poor rhetoric like Obama does repeatedly.

    And there is no doubt in my mind that Obama set out to do what he intended--to rebuild this nation into a European style socialist nanny state country. And getting away with spending 4.3 BILLION dollars a day does just that.

    In my opinion--and I survived Jimmy Carter while in our own small business--Barack Obama and his policies have hurt this nation--much more than the Carter administration.

    Carter may have been in WAY over his head as the POTUS, but at least he was an honorable and honest man who served in the U.S. military and owned his own business.

    Obama has NONE of those traits, except for being in way over his head.
