My favorite Carter story:

A female college or high schooler was helping Jimmy Carter build a Habitat for Humanity home. She was having some problems talking to Carter while she was trying to drive a nail.

"This is hard to do."
"Well, hit the damn thing."

puffy999: HedlessChickn: Brits are that stupid.


Speaking as a Brit, I am in full 51.9% agreement with this statement.

HedlessChickn: fusillade762: There is no remaining chance that it will agree to a total denuclearization, as it has seen what happened in a denuclearized Libya and assessed the doubtful status of U.S. adherence to the Iran nuclear agreement.

This is one of the many things 45 doesn't realize. If he backs out of the Iran deal without a good reason the rest of the world is never going to trust us in any kind of negotiation for as long as he's predisent.

Yes, he does understand all of that.

He's not content with the U.S. being chaotic, he has to make the entire world chaotic.

What if, and this is a HUGE what if, Trump and Putin both want the world to themselves.

Putin is driving wedges into every single country he can (Brexit, Catalonia, etc.) so that he can conquer them.

Trump think's he's going to get a part of it as well by going along with it. Of course, Putin has absolutely no intention of doing so, but he plays to Trump's narcissism to get what he wants.

I know it's easy to deride Trump as stupid. He certainly appears to be. But it's possible that everything he's ever done, from even before the election, has come from a misguided sense of overwhelming greed.

He doesn't care about the U.S. He doesn't care about the world. He cares about himself and his offspring. (Except Tiffany for whatever reason.)

And all of the "good things" that he does for his idiotic base is to shore up his power in any way he can.

If his ends get threatened in any real way, expect him to go ballistic. And I don't mean just throwing temper tantrums.

Even if Mueller finds damning incontrovertible proof.
Even if the House votes to impeach.
Even if the Senate moves to remove him from office.
Who is going to make him leave if he does not choose to do so?

This also includes him losing in 2020, assuming that he even allows an election to take place if he doesn't think he will win.

To what extreme will he go to ensure his family's success in this endeavor?

And to what extreme will he go if he realizes that he has no chance to succeed?

Donald Trump is looking at Stephen Paddock right now and thinking to himself this motherfarker was on to something.

FlyingBacon: Hes one of those do nothing president. Only last 4 years. If he thinks he got all the answers, why didnt he win another 4 years?


If the hostages got rescued he would have been seen as one of the greatest Presidents. The rescue attempt didn't go well, and so we got Reagan. That's how it goes.

This is why I'd take the threats Trump makes seriously. He knows that no matter how farked up his term may be, one big military score would make him a hero. He knows he could easily own the next election if he could hit the jackpot somewhere. Obviously it not going to be in the usual suspects(Syria/Iraq/Afghanistan). So where does that leave?

One military operation defines his presidency?    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  That's a good one.

Why not?  The LACK of one military operation is often the first thing cited by his detractors to define it.


I define his presidency by that cardigan sweater.  That's why.

Ed Grubermann: We didn't elect him to be a good administrator. We elected him because he was an honest man, and we needed that after the Nixon debacle.


UsikFark: Carter is a wonderful, dusty man.


jso2897: As an administrator, he beats the living, bleeding shiat out of the thing that sits in the Oval Office today.


Okay, now get the stars out of your eyes.

It's fashionable for good and wise progressives (just ask 'em) nowadays to treat Carter like the second coming of Nelson Mandela - but during Carter's term in office they were all set to toss him aside in favor of Ted Kennedy, the walking, talking, pantsless-staggering, waitress-fondling embodiment of the limousine liberal don't-you-know-who-I-AM it's-okay-when-we-do-it ethos.

Michael and Sonny were gone so they wanted Fredo, basically.

Last time Carter tried to help out on North Korea was 1994. It went badly.

Carter came back from his freelance meeting with Kim Il Sung waving some "peace in our time" horseshiat agreement around, Clinton was royally pissed but bit his lip and played along...and we got rolled.

Wonderful man, Carter - but a piss-poor judge of international leaders' intentions, and with a particular blind spot for dictators. 

You know that feeling you get when Dick Cheney says he's going on a hunting trip? Same thing, only with nuclear weapons.
