hey guys did you hear that jimmy carter was an unremarkable president


that is the joke

Still the best ex-President the US has ever had, by a large margin.
 
2012-12-12 10:43:48 AM
I'll never forgive Jimmy Carter for driving up the deficit to astronomical numbers from which we still can't recover, widening the disparity between the wealthy and the poor, and arming the Taliban.

THIS IS WHAT CONSERVATIVES ACTUALLY BELIEVE.

I'm fairly certain that Jimmy Carter is a better man than me, you, or subby. No, he didn't have a good run as President. I firmly believe he was too good of a man to be an effective President. Too high-minded, too moral.

But, his after-the-Presidency life is where he really shows what a 'good man' is. If we were all a bit more like Jimmy Carter, this world would be a better place.

On topic: Good on Jimmy.

So, when the right yells how we shouldn't talk about past presidents, they just mean republican presidents, right?

Try taking some vitamin B complex, vitamin C complex.. if you have a beer, go ahead and drink it. Just remember you're a living organism on this planet, and you're very safe. You've just taken a heavy drug. Relax, stay inside and listen to some music, Okay? Do you have any Allman Brothers?

Jimmy Carter understands that the most harmful thing about cannabis is, in fact, its illegality.

He's a pretty bright guy.

I figure most Republicans are already on drugs, it is the only way to explain the large bout of amnesia that lasted from 2001-2008.

He was a pretty terrible president. Thought he was a pretty good ex-president with the humanitarian work he undertook, but his swing in the last ten years, embracing our enemies, going hard anti-israel, has caused me to lose alot of respect for the guy.

As for Carter's presidency, he certainly outperformed the dilhole that succeeded him.

Jimmy Carter's term ended several years before I was born and none of his policies farked things up to the point of affecting modern-day America (unlike Reagan, for example). Why am I supposed to care about how "Bad" he was again?

This is a big indicator on how out of touch the GOP narrative is getting. They're still beating on the 'lolcarter' drum long into the 21st century when most of their audience never experienced Carter's administration and only know of him 'because' of the narrative that he was a bad President. Hell, most of the audience that they should be targeting either doesn't care about Carter or don't even know who he is.

Of course, their Carter boner doesn't even compare to their "The dead vote Democrat" derp.

The last time that happened? 1960.

Yeah, but after the whole 'ex-President/inside story' thing wore off, would you really want to hang out and get high with him?
 
2012-12-12 11:00:55 AM
Carter is a very smart guy who was bad at politics. He wanted to cut spending to tackle the deficit, work towards energy independence, stop supporting violent monsters just because they fought the Soviets, and start supporting gay rights. He just didn't have the political savvy to carry all that stuff through and ending up quarreling with Congress and firing most of his cabinet instead. It's too bad because we'd be a lot better off if more people had listened to him.
 
2012-12-12 11:00:59 AM
Yeah it really sucked how many countries he invaded for no reason and how many rights he took from us in response to that huge terrorist attack on our soil. Truly history's greatest monster.
 
2012-12-12 11:02:14 AM
CSB time: My piano teacher is an acquaintance of Carter (one of his speech writers is a close friend of hers), has met him socially several times, and says that in private, he is exactly the man you would expect from his public post-Presidency behavior.

I guess that means that my Carter Number is 2.

NeverDrunk23: From late Jan 2001 to early Jan 2009, NOTHING HAPPENED.


That's ridiculous. We know a ton of things happened.

First, there was a massive economic downturn caused by Clinton policies, then a horrific terrorist attack that occurred because Clinton was too busy getting laid to go after Osama. Then, the congressional democrats endangered America by questioning the Iraqi war and hamstringing the economy by stonewalling needed changes. Then, of course, their reckless spending caused housing prices to fall. Finally, we saw in mid-2008 how the threat coming from impending Obama economic policies caused massive economic crashes.

Lots of things happened.

He was the most terriblist President evar to not be able to single-handedly fix the dislocation caused when Nixon unilaterally ended the gold standard and by consequence, the Bretton Woods framework.

/surprised the gold bugs never remember this when scorning Carter

Not one of them can say what was so bad about it.

It's hilarious that you think an obscure southern governor who managed to snatch the Democratic nomination from some of the brightest lights in the party - including the powerful scion of 20th century America's most successful political dynasty - lacked political skills.

I met Carter before a Braves game several years ago. He actually remembered my name and asked me how school was going when I saw him a few weeks later. A friend of mine bought a Carter portrait at a flea market as a joke and we photoshopped a picture of him in to a framed picture in the background. We got Carter to sign it and he thought it was hilarious.

Hang out, yeah. Get high? No way. I get way too flat-headed when I smoke. Being a total stoner idiot in front of Jimmy Carter would be embarrassing.

My bad - Kennedy didn't seek the nomination in 1976. Still, Carter managed to outmaneuver Jerry Brown, "Scoop" Jackson, and Mo Udall.

Yes, any day. I'd help build some houses too. The farker was a nuclear engineer, so he probably knows all kinds of things. I have a lot of respect for smarts.

I know a lot of scumbags. I don't know know very many people that I think are probably decent all the way around.
