Even Jimmy Carter thinks Obama the worst president

Still laughing about this one:

“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”

Carter declined to blame Obama for the U.S.’s dismal foreign policy outlook, stating simply that circumstances “have evolved.” However, he did state that the U.S. had suffered a reversal of fortunes in foreign policy since Obama took over from President George W. Bush.

“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.

Ya think?!  At the moment I’d say our “influence and prestige and respect” in the world is at its lowest since the turn of the century — the last century.

Carter, often sighted as the worst foreign policy president we’ve ever had … until Obama … is probably feeling a little frisky now that it is apparent even to him.

He’s bound and determined to ensure his “next to last” position in the “worst president” category now that Obama’s position as the worst seems assured.

  • Naw, naw, naw…!!!

    He’ll go down as one of the GREATS! Or should that be “grates”…as in the mouth of a sewer…?

    The Obamic Decline is an apparent attempted suicide in slow mo. It will reach maximum lethality after Barracula is out of Dodge. It will be a very dicey next few years.

  • “At the moment I’d say our “influence and prestige and respect” in the world is at its lowest since the turn of the century — the last century.”

    I’m sure the French will once again want our troops to serve under their commanders when they invade Greece or Spain (along with Germany) for failure to pay their Euro debts.

    • Instead, Obama got on the line to deliver a message about as big as it gets in politics.

      “Much in the same way that the Reagan Revolution required Bush Senior” to cement the legacy of a truly transformative president, Obama said, “we’ve got to make sure that we’re laying the foundation” for the next Democrat elected, according to someone who heard the call.

      • I’m for “cementing” Barracula’s “legacy”. With garlic.

        Then dumping it all in the Chesapeake Bay. Where the crabs can benefit.

        • Feeding “Garlic Barry” to the Chesapeake crabs may appeal to the psyche, but it will surely get you on the slist of both PETA AND the EPA…. I’d also think the fans of Maryland Crab Cakes would fail to appreciate the sour taste.

    Jimmmmmmmmmy Carter was a terrific president, but you dense righties are so focused on Reagan that you can’t see it. He did a whole bunch of wonderful things that I can’t recall right now, and he was absolutely not responsible for the 10% unemployment, 14% inflation, and 17% mortgage rates that accidentally and coincidentally happened while he was in the White House. Reagan was awful. Reagan was awful. Reagan was awful. Reagan was awful.

    {Replication loop in object graph topology detected. Randomizing output to escape repetitive looping.}

    Reagan started the trend of high deficits, and Democrats in Congress had no responsibility in that whatsoever. I was working in DC at the time so I know. And I was not either primarily a coffee fetcher. I also Xeroxed important documents. Documents which show definitively that it was Reagan’s fault. Because Reagan was awful. Reagan was awful. Reagan was awful.

    {Replication loop in object graph topology detected for second time. Changing topic to escape repetitive looping.}

    But even though Carter was a wonderful president, he is totally wrong here. Obama has a deft hand with foreign policy. Everything he has tried overseas has been a spectacular success. I am a foreign policy expert, so I know.

    OK, don’t start. Just don’t start about how I have no tangible accomplishments in a lifetime career in political science, and the only copies of my book on German foreign policy ever bought were those coerced by me and a couple of cronies. Or how the university bookstore marked the used ones down to a nickel, and after not selling any put them in a compost pile. Or how I never finished another book, even though I took public money from the university for a sabbatical to write it. Or how nobody with any brains listens to me because I work at a moose-infested rural “university” barely above a community college. Do. Not. Start. I live a magical life, in which I not only get to indoctrinate teach young minds about the glories of pragmatic moderate leftist politics, but also have plenty of time to study concepts such as the Higgs bison and other advanced quantum physics ideas. All of which blend seamlessly into my political worldview, amazingly enough.

    Obama is the best. He will go down as one of the greats. He will go down as one of the greats. He will go down as one of the greats.

    I am confident that all of Obama’s efforts will turn out to be perfect. Obamacare is perfect. His deft handling of Arab Spring is perfect. His approach to ISIS is perfect. His handling of China is perfect. And don’t bring up that fake scandal of Benghazi. Fake, fake, fake. Well, except for the four bodies. I don’t think those were fake, though I can’t be sure.

    My confidence comes from my faith in his christlike visage and magnificent intellect. Because he thinks like me, as I’ve often said. Yep, he’s going to be the next figure in Mt. Rushmore. I become more sure of it with every slurp from my Obamacok Oral Therapy Device (version 2 with squirting action!). [suck, suck, suck, squirrrrrt] Yes, that’s much better. Obama is the best.

    • Can someone make a note to turn the tracing off?

      I will note however, that random jumping does much more effectively mimic the genuine article 🙂

    • I want to shoot me one-a them-air Higgs bisons. I hear they’re mighty energizing when cooked right…

    • High deficit spending started before Reagan by far, especially if you look at the inflation adjusted version (thanks Jimmy).

    • I already have this on my list …

      Questions we need to ask Presidential candidates:

      what is your plan to deal with a Higgs Boson disaster ?

      … I figure it’s about as useful as that question, 2 elections cycles ago, about the “Bush Doctrine.”

    • Are we doing the “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” thing?

  • Really though, even Cater wouldn’t have agreed to a treaty that would allow Iran to continue enriching uranium to weapons grade, with no inspection of their sites for accountability and accepted their pinky promise they weren’t going to do anything bad with the output from their centrifuges.

    Obama, he’s not only going to agree to it, (along with Mr. Magic Hat Christmas In Cambodia not MY Medals), he’s going to claim it as part of the centerpiece that makes up his accomplishments and legacy as President.

  • Caaata would not just break-over like a shot-gun for Cuber, either.

    We got nutin’. And the Castros are laughing their old, wrinkly tyrannical asses off.

  • We all know that the Iranians hated Jimmy Carter, but I doubt that they will let a little thing like “who is the worst foreign policy President ?” get in the way of humiliating Barack Obama.

  • Ahh…but Jimmy still has the distinction of being the worst one-term president of the modern era.

    • Yep. He’s the WINNAH…!!!

    • Well, technically that’s correct, but I think Obama was worse in one term than Carter was in one term. And then like old fish he just stunk more when he was elected to stay for a second.

      But I take comfort in knowing he has screwed many of his supporters with the same self centered clueless abandon that has screwed those of us who voted against him. The good news being we expected to get screwed, and they’re just beginning to realize they are too. Black unemployment, immigrants to take their jobs and unions losing their nice health plans thanks to obamadoggle.

      • …equal opportunity screwer. A dubious attribute…

        • It’s lonely up there at the top of the greatness pile!

          Say maybe when the idiots who want to rename things named after slaveholders get around to Washington they’ll consider Obama DC and they’ll suggest rechisiling Washington’s head on mt Rushmore into a bust of young bigears!

          So much stupid to look forward to here in the new millennium now that we’ve twittered into the dubious future.
          Only if Allah wills it of course.

        • Say, didn’t Mohammed own a slave or three?

          • His peeples still do…

          • Do you suppose that certain ethnic groups will shun ol Moe as a result?
            To the best of my unstudied Christian knowledge that nice young Christ fellow never owned or advocated owning any slaves.

    • The idea of shedding the Mantle of Worst President probably has him taking the blinders off sooner than the rest,

      or

      Its time to think of the next election and Obama is actually bad and extremist and we need the more moderate level headed Billary to take over.

      People are in the mood for a change and they have to create a viable sounding narrative that Billary would be change. That may mean taking the One down a notch or two.

      • Did you notice him yesterday talking about his job being vied for by the republican clown circus ( that clown part was mine not his). Almost like he thought he could go another round.

  • When you’ve lost the peanut …
