    Jimmy Carter is running out of time to salvage his legacy. At this point, it is just to try to not be the door-mat of Presidencies. He wants that honor to be all Obama's. Jimmy is content to just be the door-sill.

    Oh, c'mon. Carter is a nice guy and bein' a peanut farmer is cool in my book, but he's been wacked-out for a long time. The UNDHR is a very good reason to carry out the drone strikes.

    How could partisanship possibly play into this? Carter is attacking the policies of a current Democratic President running for re-election. If we were to be partisan we would be making excuses for Obama. But in this case, Carter is absolutely right.

    Lol, remembered by whom? People in their 50s? That's how old you'd have to be to even begin to grasp the political climate of the late 70s. Even if this country was made up entirely of 50 year olds, you're probably more likely to find Nixon/Bush as being the worst president than you are of finding Carter. At worst Carter is considered to be mediocre. Something like his predecessor.

    Doubtful, unless of course you have the supremely flawed belief that your opinion is in the majority....

    There are many defenders of Bush and even Nixon, but no defenders of Carter. Hat is willing to call him mediocre; that's probably the best defense Carter will get.

    Really? It appears that's what this thread is all about.

    A former U.S. president is accusing the current president of sanctioning the "widespread abuse of human rights" by authorizing drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists.

    You're starting to bore me with your dishonesty or just plain ignorance of the facts:

    Carter CONSISTENTLY ranks above Bush AND Nixon on scholar opinion polls for worst president:

    Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As far as public opinion goes:

    Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    2010 Gallup poll
    A Gallup poll, taken on November 1921, 2010, asked Americans to say, based on what they know or remember about the nine most recent former presidents, whether they approve or disapprove of how each handled his job in office.[30]
    John F. Kennedy (85% approval/10% disapproval)
    Ronald Reagan (74% approval/24% disapproval)
    Bill Clinton (69% approval/30% disapproval)
    George H. W. Bush (64% approval/34% disapproval)
    Gerald Ford (61% approval/26% disapproval)
    Jimmy Carter (52% approval/42% disapproval)
    Lyndon B. Johnson (49% approval/36% disapproval)
    George W. Bush (47% approval/51% disapproval)
    Richard Nixon (29% approval/65% disapproval)
    Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Carter is CONSISTENTLY considered to have been a better president BY THE MAJORITY.

    Actually, I said "at worst, he's a mediocre president" - ie - that's the worst you could say about the guy. I wouldn't call him a great and fearless leader, then again - I wouldn't call any president that - however the guy wasn't bad.
