Jimmy Carter? History lessons are apparently needed, all around. This is just sad. Reagan destroyed the economy. Carter took the long term approach to
attempt a SYSTEMIC fix. Reagan repealed it all.
As usual, americans were FAR to short-sighted and ignorant to see that a short term hardship would make for long term prosperity. They couldnt see
passed their noses.
Funny how history repeats itself.

What history books have you been reading?
Jimmy Carter had sky high 18% interest rates and sky high tax rates.
Don't you remember the Reagan recovery?
Jimmy Carter & Obama are the worst presidents this nation has ever had.
again, short term view. Its really sad that people think the only way to judge a president is by how things are when they are in office. A little
note-you cannot know how good a president was until at least 20 years after their term. Clinton is a GREAT example. He was thought of as a great
president while in office. The further things go, the more those of us with mental aptitude realize that he mortgaged our future, and was a major
factor in where we are right now.
You can cite interest numbers all you want-that is the exact reason that nothing changes. You all are too ignorant to realize that it is about more
than numbers, that numbers are skewed, and that, again, numbers for each president are as indicative of the PREVIOUS president than they are of the
one in office.
Seriously. Just sad. And people wonder why its not changing. Whats that old adage? Oh, yeah...."definition of insanity-repeating the same actions
expecting different results".
This country is doomed.
