    Is there any question that Jimmy Carter has either an agenda or is a loon?

    Jimmy Carter has been trying to be significant ever since the american people dubbed him the worst president in modern history and kicked him right to the curb.

    I think he accepts the existence of the polls, but questions the method. Just as we might accept the existence of bears yet conclude that they don't eat people.

    Well, when you start from a basic position that America doesn't deserve to exist as a nation because it is the very definition of evil, that's a fairly easy conclusion to reach.

    I'm not saying that. I'm saying that we propped up the Shah, who was not a democratically elected official, and was not a proponent of individual freedoms.

    Regardless of what's there today, to say that we stand up for freedom and democracy after keeping him in power - especially after we helped him overthrow a democratically elected government - umm...not always.

    Well, after we kick Obummer to the curb, he'll be second worst Prez in modern history.

    I love it when being Chamberlain is an insult. He did exactly what he was elected to do, and had the support of the British people who had no desire for war at that time. In fact, Daladier (the French foreign minister who also negotiated with Hitler) was greeted as a hero when he returned to Paris. Chamberlain's problem was that he believed his own press that somehow Hitler was going to sit back and that war would not be necessary.

    Basically, saying "appeasment" is saying that Britain and France would be better off starting the war in 1938 rather than 1939. War was likely necessary anyway, but sometimes buying time is good (if you use that time to get ready for what's coming).

    Depends on what you mean by "modern." Between Harding, Hoover and Nixon there's a lot of competition in the 20th Century. Some here say that Roosevelt was the worst ever.

    Agreed. Without that extra year there would have been no Battle of Britain because there would have been no effective air defenses in place. Chamberlain's 'Peace in Our Time' may have ultimately won the Second World War.
