    Of course it is. He is a former Dem POTUS.

At the end of his presidency the the nightly news broadcast the misery index which set a record for all presidents of over 20 in June of 1980. As an ex president, he can't keep his big yap shut, as is the tradition of all presidents when it comes to criticizing current administrations. In addition, suggesting the UN be involved in anything requiring military action is like believing Santa is real and windmills need chasing. The UN is run by despots and it's only useful function is the distribution of wheat. Now we have suggestions from the two worst presidents in our history. One wants to unilaterally bomb Syria and the other wants to turn the problem to the UN, which watched as hundreds of thousands were slaughtered in Rwanda. We have the blind leading the blind at this point in our history.
    Do some research before engaging the 'yapper'. There was an even more significant gas shortage in 1973 during the Nixon administration. The shortage gave us the 50 mile per hour national speed limit, which was later raised to 55.

    BTW... neither Carter nor Obama is on any of the credible lists of 10 worst presidents.... they are both pretty much thought of as average...

    Don't need Wiki. I was driving during Nixon. My personal experience was that the gas shortage during Carter was much much worse. His presidency was coupled with double digit interest rates and the bungled hostage crisis rescue attempt. I remember Carter losing the election and feeling a huge sense of relief. In my lifetime, my personal list has Obama at the bottom and Carter just on top.

    I'll see if I can get a password to alter the Wiki post. Check on it tomorrow for some more of your research.

    So you're going to vandalize wikipedia until it supports your political beliefs? WTF? Just go to conservapedia if you need to validate your hatred that much.

    I thought the Pentagon bungled the rescue? Or was Carter in his flight suit out there leading the mission. I was in the army during the Carter administration. The military and the MIC wasn't too keen on the peacenik, he didn't throw them many bones, there were large complaints that parts and equipment was thin. But my buddies that stayed on told me Ronnie "fixed" all that.

    With all the kooks watching, licking their chops wondering if Bush43 was as lame as Felonious Bill Clinton, what would you have done when evidence back to the Clinton years indicated he still had WMD?

    Bush43 was an honest guy; if anything it was that perception that helped get himself elected... especially after the scandal-a-month Felonious Bill & Hillary Clinton administration.

    Here's to hoping we get someone who is honest... you can't expect it from the left because they never tell us the truth about their schemes. Instead we have to pass trillion dollar bills to learn what's inside. They're The Cracker Jack Party... SURPRISE! I'm not post-partisan! SURPRISE! I'm not a uniter! SURPRISE! There were no shovel ready jobs, but except to shovel money to our supporters! SURPRISE... suckers.

    You're right. It appears by his actions that Obama is a closet Republican.

    Well, Montecresto, Obama is also a "constitutional scholar". Beware selective bias.

    The Pentagon didn't bungle the rescue so much as we didnt' have the proper Joint Doctrine to support that kind of integrated effort. Then we had an aircraft collision in the desert. If you read Charlie Beckwith's book, he was actually very impressed with how Carter handled it.
