    Don't you remember reading that unemployment under Obama is the worst it's been since the early 1980s. That's the recession that Carter started and Reagan ended.

    Carter also had the highest Misery Index of any president in history.

    Carters
    Proposed Energy Policy
    Other Primary Resources
    That is the concept of the energy policy we will present on Wednesday. Our national energy plan is based on ten fundamental principles.
    Yep, too bad his own party shot him down. Guess they thought his policy was bad for the country.

    Really?? I guess you didn't read the misery index in the link I provided:

    Carter - 16.26

    GW Bush - 8.11

    Less than half of Carter's.

    That means alot, since the misery Bush created started right when he was about to leave office. No president caused more damage to this nation than Bush or left the country in worse condition. Misery index? We will be feeling Bush's for decades.

    Yes it's too bad.. In the long run it would have led to energy independence. Too bad elected officials are only concerned about the present and getting re-elected.

    We'll see. We've definitely been feeling Carters for decades now.

    Obama could easily give Carter a run for his money though... he's already above 10, two points over Bush's average over 8 years.

    Funny thing though... Bush's dropped almost half a point during his presidency, Obama's has risen over three points since he became president.

    Guess that blows a few holes in your liberal wet dream.

    What was so bad about Carter? Inflation? Gas Prices? Interest rates? A president has no control over any of those things. Nixon tried to control inflation and gas prices with his "wage and price freeze" and that only made them worse.
