Jimmy Carter

We Miss You, Dutch.

The Gipper died ten years ago yesterday, and he left himself quite a legacy. All GOP presidential hopefuls since have measured themselves by his yardstick and all the Democratic hopefuls have twisted his legacy, some even comparing themselves to him! Here are a few quick facts that the lefties cannot dispute, followed by a hilarious video that so aptly illustrates what those on the left just can’t fathom. Reagan Results: Number of American taxpayers who claimed more than $1 million in income in 1980: 4,400 Number of American taxpayers who claimed more than $1 million in income in 1987: 35,000 […]

More Signs That Obama is Jimmy Carter 2.0

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 […]

Taking America Back One Bit At A Time – Part 4: The Taking of America Continued

Parts 1, 2, and 3 of this series Taking America Back One Bit  At A Time can be found here, here, andhere. The Taking of America continued In Part 3, The Taking of America, we talked about how from day one there were those who wanted to manipulate our new government in wats that would benefit them financially; the practice of  cronyism began in earnest and powerful bankers also took advantage of the potential of America through their investments and very importantly they applied their influence to get our government to establish a national bank that they could control. We talked about how it took the […]

Nothing Fair About Media’s Foul Play

The mainstream media, or more accurately Barack Obama’s Propaganda Corps, has abandoned all pretense to journalistic integrity in order to ensure the re-election of their skinny Marxist hero. Murders? Intelligence failures? Riots? Wars? Hah! The only news fit to print these days is whatever can be spun to cast discredit on Gentleman Mitt Romney, such as Romney’s entirely accurate statement regarding the 47% of cast-iron dependents … uh, voters … thought to reside in Obama’s left pocket, a private remark serendipitouslyprovided to the radical rag Mother Jones by none other than Jimmy Carter IV, grandson of the former worst president in the history of the Republic. If […]

The First Liar Does’t Have A Chance

Assuming that there were some distortions of the truth that emanated from the Republican National Convention in Tampa, the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte has taken advantage of the truism that “the first liar doesn’t have a chance”. Not surprising, of course, because the Democrats have always been superior liars and probably would have out done the Republicans even if their convention had gone first. I forced myself to watch a good bit of the DNC last night. Thanks to the Fox News live streaming of the conventions, I was able to watch and  listen without having to put up […]

And This Man is Supposedly a Genius?

We’ve heard a bit lately that Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barak Obama are super-ultra-mega intelligent, and, in fact, too smart to be POTUS.  Of course, lefties then contrast that claim with the supposed dullards; George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.  But, like all really  super-smart politicians, Carter dropped the following comment… To quote RS McCain, “WHISKEY-TANGO-FOXTROT???” You know, I kinda consider myself a reasonalby intelligent guy, and I think I can help out the former, and epically failed POTUS… 1.  The NORKS have, arguably, the most repressive government on the planet. 2.  That government is of the Communist persuasion, […]

Carter insults Reagan in his Diaries

History sees Reagan as a great president and that is how the country saw him at the time, judging by the two huge landslide elections that he won. But to the man he beat in the 1980 election, Reagan was anything but a great president.

Forget Suspension of Disbelief, We’ve Entered Suspension of Reality: MSM Attempts to Rewrite Carter Legacy

We’ve seen the MSM’s work over the last eight to ten years.  They harrassed Bush on every policy topic (some of it deserved).  When they couldn’t dig up dirt on him, they used forged documents to try to steal an election.   They were persistent; covering or exagerrating failures, and refusing to cover successes.  We all watched it.  In the end, they carried the Democrat’s narrative to the people, turning the perception from a mediocre presidency, to a terrible one. Then came Obama.  Triumphs, real or imagined, were touted.  Failures and past associations were ignored.  Lies were glossed over, and blatent contradictions […]
