How Jimmy Carter Ruined America Twice

JT For Political Reform 2013/02/28 14:11:01

Until Barack Obama came along, Jimmy Carter held the title “Worst
President in U.S. History.” Now, Carter may have taken the title back.
You would have thought he’d be satisfied with almost destroying the U.S.
economy and almost breaking the spirit of our country once. But, no! Thirty-three years later, Carter is now instrumental in helping Obama finish the job he started.


As President from 1976 to 1980, Carter came close to wrecking our
economy and our entire country. An ultra-liberal, politically correct
do-gooder, just like Obama, Carter announced his Presidency would be
dedicated to “compassion” and human rights. And, just as had happened
during Obama’s tenure, the leftist gobbly-gook “feel-good philosophy”
led to disaster.


The Carter nightmare included four years of crippling high
unemployment, stagflation of 13.5 percent, unimaginable 21.5 percent
interest rates, record gas prices, shortages and gas lines, a doubling
of the deficit from $27 billion to almost $60 billion, U.S. embassy
personnel in Iran held hostage, an unsuccessful hostage rescue attempt,
the embarrassing decline of our military, and the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan. America almost did not survive Carter.


Along came a true patriot and American hero, Ronald Reagan, who
turned Carter’s malaise and misery and the worst economy since the Great
Depression into the greatest economic turnaround and expansion in world
history. Reagan showed the world that America was indeed the “shining
beacon on the hill.” Reagan made us great again and, by doing so,
exposed Carter as an incompetent, ultra-liberal laughingstock. To make
matters worse for Carter’s legacy, the U.S. hostages in Iran were
released on Reagan’s Inauguration Day. Carter never forgave Reagan or
America for leaving his reputation in tatters.


Carter wandered the wilderness for the past 33 years, growing more
angry and bitter with each passing year. He took out his anger by
embarrassing the United States and meddling in foreign affairs. He spent
the past 33 years denouncing Israel, praising nations that supported
Muslim terrorists, defying the U.S. travel ban to Cuba and praising
tyrants like Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Yugoslavian dictator Josip Broz
Tito and North Korean despot Kim Il Sung. He oversaw election fraud and
corruption in Venezuela and Haiti and declared everything fair and
square. The man has spent 33 bitter, disgraceful years venting his
hatred for America.


Now, Carter has finally gotten his revenge. Angry at America’s
success since Reagan, including those 40 million new jobs created since
the early 1980s, Carter might be the man most responsible for Obama’s
re-election, allowing him to continue the destruction Carter began all
those years ago in 1976.


How did Carter help re-elect Obama? Mitt Romney was poised to do to
Obama exactly what Reagan did to Carter. A brilliant businessman and
turnaround specialist, Romney was the perfect man to again save America.
He would have turned around this Obamageddon economy in two years with
low taxes, reduced spending and smaller government — exactly how Reagan
saved us from Carter. But along came that secret tape where Romney
discussed “the 47 percent” of Americans who want government to give them
checks and will vote for the politician who keeps the checks coming.
The release of that tape was the beginning of the end for Romney. His
reputation, likeability ratings and Presidential campaign never
recovered.


Well guess who released that damaging tape? It was Carter’s grandson, Democratic operative Jimmy Carter IV, getting sweet revenge for Grandpa.

Carter’s grandson said: ”I’ve
been hearing all my life people making fun of my grandfather, or saying
that he was a bad president, or things like that, and I’ve just gotten
used to it. And it’s nice to be able to hit back.”


Upon seeing the tape of Romney’s remarks, the former President said in an email to his grandson: ”James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa.”


It may not have been the only reason Romney lost, but it certainly
did more damage to his campaign than anything Obama said in months of
campaigning. And so, with the help of Carter’s grandson, history was
changed. Instead of a modern-day Reagan, we got stuck with a second,
disastrous term of a modern-day Carter. If Carter had been re-elected
back in 1980, there very likely would never have been 40 million new
jobs over the next 25 years. America’s military and economy probably
never would have recovered, and we’d have a lower standard of living and
gasoline prices of $8 per gallon — just like in the European socialist
countries both Carter and Obama want America to emulate.


But thanks to Carter’s grandson, it’s Groundhog Day. Carter gets a
do-over. We’re about to see what would have happened if we’d never
elected Reagan and had given Carter a chance to finish the job of
destroying America. We’re about to see if Obama can finish the job of
destroying the U.S. economy in a second term — all in the name of tax
and spend, compassion, fairness, social justice, and human rights.


Once Obama is done using Carter’s ultra-left policies to gain
retribution and redistribution, I can imagine only that America will be a
shell of its former self. America’s military will decline, the U.S.
economy will continue in misery and malaise, inflation will return to
unimaginable heights, debt will continue to rise, and gas lines and
rationing will once again be part of our lives. America will be anything
but exceptional.


Congratulations, Carter. It took 33 years and your grandson’s help,
but you’ve finally gotten your revenge on the American people and
American exceptionalism.


Sadly, just like a second term of Carter, I can promise you, this will not end well.


I’m Wayne Allyn Root for PersonalLiberty.com. See you next
week. Same time, same place. That’s when I’ll present to you the
solution, the perfect model to save America and the U.S. economy. Carter
and Obama won’t like it. But it is proven to work. See you next week.
God bless America.

    Before Barack Obama came? Excuse me were you asleep when George Bush was president? I guess so, I'm neither for the Dems or Repubs, but Bush was worse than Obama, it's close I'll give you that, however I'm sure you're so conservative all your going to say about Bush is that he kept us safe like these other punch drunk conservatives say. Kept us safe ha, the biggest attack on our country happened under his watch. We don't have to go into the "conspiracy theories", you are apart of the group that wants us to forget about Bush and all the other lousy conservative presidents. Typical blame the liberals for all our problems. You should go write a book with Ann Coulter.

    "Until Barack Obama came along, Jimmy Carter held the title “Worst President in U.S. History"? He "held the title" only with the deluded denizens of Right-Wing Fantasyland!

    Scholars, on the other hand, give that title to Warren G. Harding. President Obama is tied with LBJ for 14th BEST! Carter is ranked #27, ahead of George W. Bush (#34) and Richard Nixon (#32). Even the Wall Street Journal ranks Carter ahead of Nixon! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    This is not true in the sense of being easily blamed on Carter.

    There were nearly 8 million jobs created under his Administration, which is actually more than Reagan created, during his first term that is. However, the labor force kept on expanding faster than that.

    Already Inflation had reached high levels under Ford, and to an extent Nixon. By the time Reagan was entering office though, it was already falling. Reagan was not responsible for curbing such inflation, but rather Paul Volcker.

    Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan
    Carter was the one who initiated the arming of the Afghanistan fighters in the region, although Reagan accelerated it. He also created the "Carter Doctrine" promising to defend the Middle East against Foreign Aggression. Reagan just expanded to Internal Disputes in the region.

    "Ultra Liberal Carter"
    Carter did quite a lot for de-regulation. Mostly for transportation, with increased airline deregulation, increased motor vehicle deregulation, increased railroad deregulation. Hardly an ultra liberal communist socialist statist eh?

    Gas Lines:
    This happened under Nixon too. But since he's a Republican, obviously can't be blamed! It isn't Carter's fault, and if we had taken up on his ideas regarding greater efficiency in regards to our energy utilization, America would not be in nearly as much of a pinch as far as oil prices go today.

    And now, greater clarity, transparency, and the ending of secrets, with the revelation of Romney's attitude towards so many Americans, is now an attack by the Democratic Party to destroy America? There was no spin there, we just released what Romney said.

    Also just because somebody is a "Brilliant Businessman" doesn't mean they're actually going to succeed well in running the economy. Herbert Hoover was a businessman. And a great man too, he saved millions of people in famines around the world, worked his way up to high social level, immeasurably improved the lives of Belgians during ww1 by delivering them relief supplies, and was an integral part of rebuilding Germany after the second world war. But as a president, he did not succeed in keeping the American economy strong.

    If there were so many jobs created, how come unemployment was so high? How come interest rates soared under the Carter Administration? He had one of the worst jobs policies on the planet but then I can't expect plantation dwelling progressive to ever think for themselves and to do that you have to break the chains that hold you slaves to the socialist agenda.

    Are we not being a little too naive here? The "47%" didn't bring Romney down. The "Americia" didn't bring Romney down. The Romneycare, no it's not, didn't bring Romney down. The "grits ya'll" didn't do it either. The "etch a sketch" didn't do it either. The "corporations are people too my friend" wasn't it. The lack of growth in Massachusettes didn't do it. The "binders of women" didn't help, but didn't do it. The "stop whining" to all the other republican, presidential candidates didn't do it. The "military not having horses" wasn't it either. Neither was the draft-dodging for the Lord, please get me out of here, I wanna go to war now, wasn't the biggee. It was everything Romney did he "didn't do it" unless he said he would but he couldn't cause he already did.
    As a republican, I didn't like Romney always lying. That's what did him in. God didn't even want him to be president of the United States......he would bankrupt us to Communist China.

    I should hope not. The "good" you talk about that Romney did was to hurt people.He took their lives savings. Ruined their American dreams. That's not help.
    Now, what "he'll" tell you is different from the many other transcripts. But there's too many other witness's to count.
    GOD is Great JT........Romney proved you shouldn't use the name GOD in vain. Check it out. It's all there. Dive in...............GOD made sure he wasn't president of The United States. Nobody else put Romneys words in his mouth but Romney.
    And if Carters kid heard Romney ( and there's proof of that too) say what he said, doesn't mean Romney didn't say it. Or, only Romney can make you believe that?.....Oh, that's rich.

    Very good summary of what a complete failure the Jimmy was. How his "feel good" approach was met with open arms after Nixon and his paranoia and Jack Boot style leadership. But America saw very quickly that Jimmy was just a paper saviour. And what he tried and tried to do NEVER worked but in fact worked in REVERSE. Exactly like Obama.
    The difference today is, the University system has been teaching liberal gobldey gook for 40 years now, and the younger Americans (often even the under 50 crowd) just don't know the difference between Promises and Results. They also are too many years removed from knowing and understanding what evil comes from destroying liberty and perverting justice. guess history will repeat...not Carter getting ousted, but OUR country falling victim to its own success!

    Russia and China are both preparing for war and I seriously doubt they want to fight each other. Their target is the destruction of the United States, which each has wanted for over half a century. And Obama is busy preparing a way for them. More than decimating the military.

    Even of Obama shuts down the military completely when push comes to shove at least 90% of us who have been in uniform will step up. That would be about 3 million. Right behind them another 60 to 70 million deer hunters will step up. No matter what kind of equipment they show up with, when they are up against 70 million who don't like to waste ammo, they lose

    Hopefully you are correct. The problem is, they still have the upper hand with equipment that they don't even have to get their hands dirty to annihilate those of us on the ground. Will they move on us is more the question here. I would hope not, but I will be prepared to do battle once again if necessary. You have to remember, Obama has been weeding out those Generals and Admirals who would not go against the American People, that's why you see so many high ranking members retiring. I would think there would be many of them to also take a stand.
