Pot Calls Kettle Black (although kettle is not, in fact, black)

Jimmy Carter calls Cheney a disaster

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former President Jimmy Carter on Wednesday denounced Vice President Dick Cheney as a “disaster” for the country and a “militant” who has had an excessive influence in setting foreign policy.

You know, if anybody understands disasters, it’s Jimmy Carter. A President whose tenure was so bad, we actually had a “Misery Index.” How soon people have forgotten how bad  ’77 to ’81 really were. Democrats always get away with it.

Look at Bill Clinton.  He came into office just after the end of the Cold War, when people were done with the major drama, just after a big U.S. victory in the Gulf War, and technology (cell phones, computers) were just taking off. His eight years would have been a good presidency for anyone. Clinton just happened to be in the right place, at the right time. He really didn’t contribute much of anything to the general prosperity, in fact, he lowered the bar for what we expect of a President. Yet people look back at the ’90s as some wonderful care-free utopian wonderland, and think it was because of him. Well, it wasn’t because of him, and the ’90’s weren’t that great. His wife may get elected as a result of this revisionist history.

    Jimmy just needs more dictators to cozy up to.

    Remember the gas lines? Hostages? Inflation? Unemployment? America being viewed as weak and indecisive? Good times, Carter times.

    Gas lines! I do remember! Can you imagine if that happened today? There would be full-on riots if people had to wait in line an hour for gas.
