More Signs That Obama is Jimmy Carter 2.0

Share

Those of us old enough might remember the following speech from Jimmy Carter…

Well, it appears that Obama is becoming the Jimmy Carter 2.0, and Newsmax can explain why.

Americans’ optimism about their country is at its lowest since when Jimmy Carter was president in 1979, a new Gallup poll has found.

The survey of 1,011 adults conducted Jan. 7-10 found that only 39 percent — or fewer than four in 10 Americans — rated the country positively on a 1-to-10 scale, Gallup reports. While the number is about the same as in 2010, it is at its lowest since 1979.

However, they were more optimistic on where the nation will be in five years — with 48 percent giving a positive response — but that is also as low as in 1979.

However, there are two very sad differences between now and then.

1.  Million of brainwashed or dependent people voted for more of the same, if not worse.

2.  Mitt Romney was no Reagan.  NOT EVEN CLOSE.  There was no real Conservative message-no real alternative.

So, while Obama is actually worse that a Jimmy Carter 2.0, the slippery slope of indoctrination, dependency, and general failure is allowing Obama  to do what Carter could not-destroy our economy.

    I think Jimmy Carter 2.0 just bluescreened our economy for good.

    The majority of Americans today look to the government to make their lives better rather than themselves. This not the America I grew up in. Romney was no reagan, but he was a far better joice to turn the economy around. The average American saw a rich man they could not identify wit and they voted for the guy they had to know would make the economy worse. Insanity!

    I think a lot of us believe that Carter begat Reagan; I know I do. The funny thing is that Reagan had to fight his own party’s Rockefeller/Ford/Loser wing just to get the GOP nomination. The Republicans had to be dragged kicking and screaming to victory. As soon as they could, they reverted to their country club roots and nominated Bush the Elder.

    In 2012, the Democrats did their part and nominated Carter v 2.0. The GOP establishment was just too entranced with Mitt The Magic Moderate Vote-Getter to nominate a winner. Unlike 1980, the Republican blue bloods won, and thus America lost.
