    Third, I would have had him suspend any monies that were being wasted on the farce of Global Warming.

    Fourth, I would have had him appoint a working group of legislators from both parties to plan a method to remove power from washington and deposit it with the states.

    Fifth, I would have had him announce and execute a real reform to the tax code to simplify it and make it more friendly to those corporations driven off shore to other countries.

    Finally, I would have had him invite world leaders from around the world to meet in an effort to open borders to free trade encourage the exchange of ideas and guarantee the individual rights of all to express ideas in a free and open market place of idea on the internet.

    Sadly, he has done exactly the opposite of all of these things and we see the results.

    If he had done all of these things, the world would not be destabilized and we would not be in the situation we find ourselves thanks to his dithering and bumbling.
    Agree, except Simpson-Bowles was a good economic idea which was shoved in a drawer and ignored. DC likes to spend money!

    The expansion of the EU, to include oil and natural gas. A strong EU is a strong US.

    Average? I suppose that in the spectrum of presidential effectiveness, it's hard to arrive at a rating for him. How would you rate the effectiveness of Jimmy Carter?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Very below average. Did you think I was a liberal or something?

    Just trying to get a feel for what you are talking about.

    Most of the measurables for Carter were better than they are for Obama.

    What is another president that you would rate as average?
