IBD agrees with QandO readers about Jimmy Carter
Posted by: Billy Hollis on Wednesday, May 30, 2007

Last week, in the comments on a Jimmy Carter thread, I started a fairly frivolous poll on how to describe Carter. McQ referred to it in another post, and over sixty QandO readers responded.

As of this writing, the winning description of Carter is "Worst President in American History". You can view current results here, or vote in the poll yourself here.

Well, Investors Business Daily has a series entitled "Profile in Incompetence: A 10-Part Series on the Worst President in American History". Right in line with McQ and QandO readers!

My own preferred description, "Highest Ranking Useful Idiot in American History", is tied for second. I still maintain that it's a better description, given the fact that we've had some really awful presidents. Commenter Jeff Medcalf, for example, proposes James Buchanan for "worst president", and that's certainly defensible.

Of course, Carter has his defenders. Commenter Scott Erb has referred to Carter as "A middling President, a great ex-President, and one of the most respected individuals in the world". I included that as one of the options in the poll, but right now I'm afraid it's languishing at the back of the pack.
