It got so bad under Jimmy Carter that even he IN AN ELECTION YEAR had to admit how bad things were (except of course he blamed the citizens) in his "malaise" speech.
As bad as his domestic policies were, his foreign policy was worse. His policies led directly to the rise of radical Islam and also helped the Soviet Union to nearly achieve their goal of world domination.
Obama's policies are NOTHING more than Jimmy Carter's policies and they not just failed, they nearly destroyed the free world.
Yet there are idiots who never learn from history and buy into his idiotic "change" mantra.
He preaches resentment and class division - and the press bills him as someone who can bring us together.
We will get what we deserve if we elect this empty suit.
He is not qualified to run the local Kmart, yet the idiots in the Dem party have hung out a "no experience necessary" sign for the most important job in the world.
