From the Patriot Post:
Carter and Obama: An Unfair Comparison
Carter was inept, but Obama is totally incompetent.
Back in 1979, our nation was in severe decline.
We were in the throes of a crippling recession, any hope of economic growth had been blunted by excessive taxation and regulation, and fuel prices were high — the result of Middle East turmoil, particularly in Iran, which posed a grave threat to our interests and to regional stability.
To make matters worse, the nation was experiencing a crisis of confidence under the leadership of a Democrat president, Jimmy Carter, who subscribed to the errant notion that government was the solution to our problems.
Fast-forward three decades, and there are remarkable parallels between Carter’s failed leadership and that of Barack Hussein Obama today. In the words of that sage Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”
