AP: CARTER DISTURBED BY DIRECTION OF U.S.

As a person, a human being, as one who really does care about his fellow man, Jimmy Carter is the best. But his presidency was a miserable failure. Even his own party would not work with him because he was so liberal that most of them would not have gotten re-elected if they had supported all of his proposals.

Remember the double digit inflation, under Carter? I do.

I could write a whole post on the failures of this man. But the fact remains, this country is a hell of a lot better off than when he was steering the helm.


Wash. Post: DEMOCRATS LOSING RACE FOR FUNDS UNDER DEAN
The Democratic National Committee under Howard Dean is losing the fundraising race against Republicans by nearly 2 to 1, a slow start that is stirring concern among strategists who worry that a cash shortage could hinder the party's competitiveness in next year's midterm elections.

Not surprising, when you consider the next brief.

DNC CHAIRMAN HOWARD DEAN REFUSES TO APPEAR ON SET WITH RNC CHAIR DURING TOMORROW 'MEET THE PRESS', SOURCES TELL DRUDGE... DEAN ONLY AGREED TO BACK-TO-BACK INTERVIEWS ON NBC WITH RIVAL... DEVELOPING...

Carter wouldn't even support him for president during the primaries, after Dean flew down and attended church services with him, unannounced.

Want a bigger failure than Carter? Look no further than Howard Dean. But at least Carter was not a coward and Dean is.

Pretty much sums up how I feel, too.

That's sort of like saying someone is very dead. Once your dead, does "very" really matter? Bigger failure? ;) Toss them both out with the bath water as far as I'm concerned.

In all fairness, Carter did broker a peace deal between Begin and Sadat. But, it didn't result in a lasting peace, did it? He got them to chill out for awhile, at the same time he was screwing up the Iranian crisis.

Here is the title of Carter's op ed today:

"This isn't the real America"

This guy is really something else. Probably the greatest living embarrassment today.
