    Without doubt, Jimmy Carter is the most incompetent and unproductive president in America’s history. When he was president, inflation was greater than 20% and the U.S. suffered the most embarassing political debacle in our history. He did not do anything right, even the so-called peace deal with Begin and Sadat was fundamentally flawed. Now, he hopes we have no corporate memory, and he ponificates on the economy. Only an utter and total fool would pay him any attention, and I for one will never forgive him for his demeaning of our country. Shame forever on Jimmy Carter!!

  • D.C. Irving:

    Such notations on the Jimmy Carter years overlooks a point: money matters, economics, etc., are manipulable by greater forces far beyond the office of the president. That holds true for every man serving term(s) of office. Once thought to be the Invisable Hand that effects economy, it is in the hands of those who control the banks, stock markets, world trade. One person can not be held solely responsible for the economic mess then or now. Fixing blame serves only to remain blind to the real causes of economic highs and lows.

  • That may be true — but it also is just as fair as Carter’s silly claims about Bush.
