For the under 40 crowd, who do not really remember the Seventies, I have some good news for you. You are getting to relive them. No, we do not have disco. No, we are not recycling leisure suits and John Travolta is not making a comeback.
We have the rerun of Jimmy Carter.
Yes, Barack Obama really is another Jimmy Carter.
From US News:
Marking the similarities between President Barack Obama's time in office and former president Jimmy Carter's is nothing new. But as of Monday, Obama has hit one more Carter benchmark - both saw gas prices double in their first term of office.
In fact, while just barely, Obama has seen an even higher gas price increase than Carter dealt with under his administration.
Under the Carter administration, gas prices increased by 103.77 percent. Gas prices since Obama took office have risen by 103.79 percent. No other presidents in recent years have struggled as much with soaring oil prices. Under the Reagan administration, gas prices actually dropped 66 percent. When Bill Clinton was president, gas prices grew by roughly 30 percent, and under both Bush presidencies, gas prices rose by 20 percent.
Barack Obama is just like Carter. Carter was merely incompetent. Obama actually wants to see gas prices rise.
Anyone remember Stephen Chu?
The Obama energy secretary said he wanted to see gas prices rise to European levels. Does anyone remember what Obama said in 2008?
He had no problem with the high gas prices, only the rate they went up.
In 2008 Obama was being interviewed by CNBC and he said:
Harwood: So, could these high prices help us?
Obama: I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. But if we take some steps to help people make the adjustment, first of all by putting more money into their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly U.S. automakers, then I think, ultimately, we can come out of this stronger and have a more efficient energy policy than we do right now.
So when Obama tells us he wants lower gas prices, it is just another case of knowing Obama is lying because his lips are moving.
Obama is an illegal alien, therefore he cannot be a traitor.
Yes ! "Can't be a traitor from something thsat you have never belonged" (-:) !
Too many people are pushing the idea that he is a traitor, but as I said he is not. Which also means that he cannot be impeached as that would make his presidency legitiment. He is not eligible to be President, so he must be removed from office in hand-irons as a spy and saboteur.
Jeff, are you forgetting Carter gave away the Panama Canal? Just GAVE IT AWAY!!!! I guess he didn't realize it wasn't his to give, maybe? Where the h--- was Congress on that one? He should have been impeached!
The only reason Carter wasn't as destructive as Obama is that he was a blooming idiot!
I was probably preoccupied with the 22% interest on home loans
Postscript to above: I just realized the Panama Canal giveaway is Goal 44 of the 45 Communist Goals: Internationalize the Panama Canal. I remember quite clearly there was no rhyme or reason given, Congress didn't object, nobody appeared to object. Except me.
In school we were taught how grueling the work was for the American citizens who built it and how malaria was rampant. It was agreed by all that even though it was located in a foreign land it belonged to the United States because we built it and it benefited everybody.
And that peanut brain gave it away! I thought he was just stupid. Now I can see he was a stupid COMMUNIST!
I bet you choked on that.
Interesting! Below is a quote from Judson's post from March 12, 2012 titled "Obama: Simply clueless or lying?"
"The president said his fight for a payroll tax cut last year will help Americans afford higher gas prices."
Now, here is a quote from above.
“Obama: I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. But if we take some steps to help people make the adjustment, first of all by putting more money into their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly U.S. automakers, then I think, ultimately, we can come out of this stronger and have a more efficient energy policy than we do right now.”
So, how about: Obama: a) Simply clueless or lying
e) pure evil
I say all of the above!
Well people if that obama guy stays in another 4 years he will finish off America
and we will most like be under a Marshall law if he has another 4 years and will
put himself a dictator and there be nothing anyone can do. So don't vote for that Muslim
he says he's not but he is and he wasn't born in America got everyone's eye blinded
So watch it he'll going to get back in there are enough morons to keep him in
Watch be very careful people. Watch and see he'll lie to millions and give many faults hopes
I am in my 50's and do rememebr Carter. I was in the Army stationed in Germany when he was President. Carter was a complete idiot and did not know what he was doing. Obama on the other hand does know what he is doing and everything he has done is on purpose. He wants the US destroyed and is working very hard in doing so.
And it looks like he might get the opportunity, Raymond. He has some very convincing techniques to Get Out The Vote! http://www.westernjournalism.com/dial-o-for-murder-voter-fraud-inti...
At first I was worried he would do something to thwart the elections. Now I'm thinking maybe WE should do something of the sort.
I am sorry, Judson, but I cannot agree. Jimmy Carter was a "well-meaning" fool, whereas B0 is Dangerous with intent!
Jimmy Carter thought himself a patiotic American and a "moral" Christian sort. BO,of course, is neither moral nor
patriotic to America! He is Muslim, Maxist, and admittedly not for America.Have you seen his decor in the Oval Office?? It's a big slap in the face to every son of the Red, White and Blue! How can we tolerate this blatent Treason??
His desire and behaviour is in every way to be Dictator of a Military State! He has already made the middle class and
every one else for years to come SLAVES to an insurmountable exploding deficit! He flaunts his distain for Congress, his contempt for the American people,the unborn and the old. Even the Justices on the Supreme Court are not exempt
from his machivellian threats of illogical omnipotence! Why do all his "friends", past and present, range invariably from
the corrupt, criminal, and Amercia-hating ranks? Why is the list of "untimely"murders closely connected with people who stood to expose or threaten him in some way growing by the day?
No, Jummy Carter was dumb and almost naive, but not so with BO who WILLFULLY works to destroy the US. This
creature is called Evil!
