    Your problem is that you do not understand how politics, polling, and the mass media work. When Bush's numbers were in the 30s, he was constantly under attack from the mass media, which with the exception of Fox News, is largely compliant with the left. Journalism by it's very nature leans to the hard left. Obama would just about have to be caught in the act of eating live kittens to get his poll numbers into the 30s. Not to mention, many of those polls giving Bush those low numbers were caught stacking the respondents towards the left.

    However blaming Bush for the poor state and local response(In louisiana) in the aftermath of Katrina was a combination of political and moronic.

    Also, there were no "seriously damaging Obamacare mandates" but I do concede that the anti-Obamacare media campaign was highly successful. The facts however, were that myths didn't meet the reality.

    No damaging mandates? Right! My health insurance went from $250.00 a month for a $1200.00 deductible, to $678.00 a month with a $6000.00 deductible. That is what the first obamacare mandate did to me. You may not think of that as damaging. I do. Why have health insurance if you cannot afford to use it? I dropped out of the private health insurance market.

    Yeah, I don't know how the media works. LOL.

    Unskew the polls, man. Worked for Romney.

    I am confident that if we compared those two policies side by side, you didn't have the great insurance policy you think you had.

    Under Obamacare, there are indeed winners and losers. The winners are the poor, old and sick while the losers, the young, healthy and rich pay a bit more. Overall, healthcare costs are under control and everything the right predicted did not happen.

    Let's come back and talk about this in 30 years after everything has a chance to settle down.

    These days Carter is a mere afterthought. Probably half on this talkboard were of an adult age when Carter was president.
