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.
