    I think at the least some of those who voted ‘James Earl Carter’ as the worst president of the 20th century, namely, Agent Ferris, apdst, bicycleman, Dav, EpicDude86, Goshin, LadyLiberty, LaMidRighter, Missouri Mule, Partisan, Porchev, ptif219, Redress, Vader, should explain their vote and help us understand just what acts he committed that in their eyes causes him to deserve this scourge.

    All of the 20th century presidents violated their oath of office.

    Care to back that up? That every President since 1900, and until 1999 has violated his oath of office?

    Perhaps, you can offer more than a word as to why ‘Iran’ earns Carter this criticism.

    Well let's see:

    Roosevelt: Progressivism and railroad regulation
    Taft: Dollar Diplomacy
    Wilson: Draft
    Harding: Regulation of the telegraph
    Coolidge: Support of farm subsidies (in general)
    Hoover: Intervention into the economy
    Roosevelt: New Deal
    Truman: Took over the railways
    Eisenhower: Expanding social welfare programs
    Kennedy: New Fronteir
    Johnson: War on Poverty
    Nixon: Price controls
    Ford: Education for All Handicapped Children Act
    Carter: Chrysler bailout
    Reagan: Iran-Contra
    Bush: ADA
    Clinton: Energy tax

    Its like having Jack Abramoff, Bernie Madoff, and Rod Blagojevich as the president at the same time.
    Ah, good. That's what I was waiting for someone to bring up. I'm not one for having a favorite President or least favorite, but what I was waiting for was someone to bring up the perception of Harding's presidency in those terms. It was quite the popular sentiment towards his administration, hence why I was kind of surprised at the lack of attention towards him.

    You mean that we actually take the constitution literally as it's supposed to be read?
