If only he had been willing to negotiate...
The shutdown could have been avoided if he had agreed to a delay before it happened instead of afterwards.
But continuing to blame Republicans after five years is a hard habit to break. Even with a democratic-controlled Congress for the first two years, he still blamed Republicans.
We can only imagine how hard it must be to break the addiction now.
The Magic Negro has lost many nights' sleep trying to find a way to blame Republicans for the Health.gov fiasco.

Stay Tuned. Maybe Rand Paul sabotaged it?

Don't forget his failed military attempt to rescue the American hostages from the Iranian Dipaer-Heads.
Somebody forgot to install "Desert-Style" air filters onto those rescue helicopters.
They crashed from sucking too much sand.
Carter was and still is a global-styled loser.
Oh, I see. So you think Carter should have run out onto the tarmac and installed the appropriate air filters himself.

And because he didn't, the mission failure was his fault?

You really are a buffoon.

The globe stopped warming a while back. They just kept milking it for all it was worth for as long as they could. But that liberal udder dried up completely.
I agree with you in large part but recent evidence suggests that they weren't milking an udder as they thought but another organ normally found on a Bull's underside.

Divided Republican party is wonder to behold.
Today Reagan would be a democrat of course
Reagan, of course, would not be a democrat. That party left him long before he became Governor of California and he wasn't the one who left it.

It's now a new democratic party and you've been hijacked by progressive socialist radical liberals. And you don't even know it.

You realize most of this is simply a list of generalized symptons without having provided any facts showing Carter as a causal factor. So as I suspected, you were not up to the challenge.
First, Carter inherited high inflation from Gerald Ford.
High interest rates were the decision of FRB Chairman Paul Volcker and this, more THAN ANYTHING Carter did, triggered the recession.
Consider this. Reagan liked Volcker so much, he reappointed him. Possible payback for Volcker having sunk the Carter presidency? I think so.
Ask yourself this. Why would Reagan want the same FRB Chairman who caused the economic breakdown (and was key in Reagan's victory)?
Lousy foreign policy? I asked you for specifics and all you do is provide some biased bottom-line verdict. You do know what specifics are, don't you?
Micro-manager? What does that mean? I want facts, hon, facts. Not your ratty conclusions.
Didn't like playing by the rules? Like what exactly? Seems you've forgotten who was responsible for Watergate and Iran-Contra.
Rising energy prices were a result of newly formed OPEC, which was able to manipulate the market by keeping output low.
Stagflation? You're being redundant as this is simply another form of inflation.
Sorry, Carol. Nothing you provide shows a connection between Carter's direct actions and the economic downturn which followed.
And he sure didn't leave behind two unfinished wars and 11.4 trillion in debt.
Now sit in the corner with the rest of the GOP dunces.
Stagflation is NOT "inflation". It's a stagnant economy, just like what we have now...and the term of the era it originally referenced was in part as a result of the "OIL EMBARGO" of the era.

Lousy Foreign Policy-Libya. We had NO business going "there" to start with.
Add to that eased sanctions on Iran. Is there some credible reason as to WHY sanctions would be eased, when there's been no compliance as far as nuclear production activities?

Carter was a TRUE diplomat and intellect, a humane and decent being- with a "resume" to prove it.

I just happened to see a video that made me extremely angry. I'm going to be mad just thinking about it for days.

Those guys would have had to rope and hog tie me and I'd still find a way to kick their sorry asses to kingdom come or die the frick trying.



Shit. I'm so pissed off I can't even see straight.

I say let's go to Mexico, find these Mexicans who have no heart and no soul and chase them until they get tripped by a rope and fall head over hills a few dozen times and break a few bones in the process.

Who the hell's with me????

I'm writing somebody about this and raising some hell. Apparently, this is occurring in several states as well - like Nevada and California.

Somebody's gonna hear from me about this and wish the hell they hadn't.

Everyone who cares a whit about animals, write or call Senator Mark Manendo in Nevada and raise hell about stopping this cruel and heartless treatment of horses.

And please go to this website and sign the petition.

I'm not finished looking into this. I'm calling the sponsors of these rodeos and anyone connected to putting on these rodeos and giving them an earful they soon won't forget.

I'm ashamed to call myself a human being when other human beings have no soul and no heart and act worse than animals who do.

Sorry guys, but I'm done for the evening. I'm much too upset right now.
