    I expect the usual, "Carter was crap" statements from the GOP clones here , but is there anything in 'Bomber King' Carter's quoted remarks that is actually wrong?

    Hmm, despite his own shortfalls whilst in his own term of office, I tend to agree with Carter's sentiment.
     
  3. Bush's popularity usually ranks as the lowest in US history...

    That said, i hardly think Carter has anything to talk about, having let the Columbians murder DEA agents at will with no recourse and a bunch of Arabs taunt and make a mockery of the US for over a year with only 1 rescue attempt even planned. Should have just written them off and turned Iran into a parking lot.

  5. issue isn't about why it happened, it was that carter failed to realize diplomacy was not going to work to get our people back.
     
  6. Jarhead, he tried, it failed spectacularly. The appetite for another go at it was lost, diplomacy resumed.

    He did try. At least he didn't launch an operation against a foreign power under the flimsiest of false pretences
     
  7. that is very true ptpongo.

    Bush consistently has the lowest approval rating of any US president ever, including the south's approval rating of Lincoln (there were comparisons to Satan made of him by southern politicians btw) before the civil war.
     
  8. Diplomacy did work in the freeing of the US hostages. After 444 days they were released just minutes after Ronaldus Maximus was inaugurated. The problem with the diplomacy was that Iran [in it's inimicable way] used it entirely to Iran's own advantage.

    Back to Bush; we will not know whether Bush will be judged as one of the worst presidents in US history until he is out of office and some disinfecting sunlight has been shone on the dark recesses of what he and his cronies have been up to. Certainly his approval ratings are the lowest ever seen for a US president and the harm that he has done to the United States in general and the GOP in particular is spectacular.

  9. And Bush just made it worse on himself; dignified silence is more appropriate in this situation. Whatever carter did or didn't do, he's known as a highly respected statesman and pointing fingers at someone like that is only proving their point.
