Jimmah? That you?

Ugh. I’m sorry. I keep pulling the cord, but the engine won’t start. I’ve been staring at my Twitter stream today, swinging between horror and smoldering resentment. And, at this stage of the game, I don’t know how much of the information I’m getting is true.

There is that eerie familiar Jimmy Carterish stench hovering over the whole business, though. Which made me think…for as long as I can remember, excitable young men periodically pour into the Arab street, go “rabble rabble rabble!” and burn an American flag. I’m still unclear what they hope to accomplish by this.


I don’t like Jimmy Carter. Does it show?
sock it to me

I’m old enough that I just can’t get beyond the thought that ‘we’ve been here before’. It’s all so damn familiar and we know how it ends. Sadly so.

I keep trying to pick Jimmah Cahtah in the Dead Pool, but other readers of yours are quicker than I.

If I win the Dead Pool for JC, I’ll bronze that dick and hang it on the wall. That way, I can tell guests it’s JImmy Carter’s dick.

Rest assured that you are not alone in your disgust and resentment. I just hope there are enough pissed off voters to throw Obama & Co. out on their terrorist appeasing asses this November. Another four years and we’ll be staring Sharia law in the face over here.

In a few weeks, he’ll be 88 years old. His mother kicked the bucket at 85, his dad at 58 and his 3 siblings at 51, 54, and 63. All of them died of pancreatic cancer. You have to wonder what’s in the water down there.

PEANUTS KILL!!!!1!!!!

I never could understand why Jimmah thought he could win reelection with the hostage situation going on. But he soldiered on. Thankfully he didn’t win.

I have to say, you did an excellent job with the picture, SW. That’s one ugly dude.

Yeah when I said Obma would be Carter II, I didn’t realize it was going to be this literal.

Actually I REALLY hope he doesn’t kick off before the election. You know the press would beatify the man and completely gloss over his miserable failures. Hell they’ll even tell us what the “Golden Age” his 2nd term could have been if only that bastard Reagan hadn’t won. This would be the promise that the Empty Chair would use to bolster his candidacy – a second Carter term? YES, this is what it could be!

Much as I hate the dirty bastard, I learned a valuable life lesson from watching Jimmah crawl helplessly in front of some Persian so poor he wore a towel hat- a lesson that served me well in my business life.

1. Never assume that your opponent thinks like you do.
2. Never assume that your opponent would not do something just because you wouldn’t do it.
3. Focus on what your opponent does and ignore what he says.
4. It is valuable if your opponent views you as unpredictable, easily provoked, and irrational. ( I actually learned this part from Reagan. Between the election and actually taking office, he very publicly gave Iran the impression that he not only wanted to nuke them but wanted to push the button with his tongue. It works. Your opponent will often roll over rather than take the chance that you really might just do something that stupid.

This perspective and approach served me very well, both in political infighting in the firm, and while doing labor negotiations with the union.

Having said all this, I’ve been saving up my money for years to make sure that I can take the trip to piss on Jimmy’s grave.

Jimmy Carter was the perfect example of the Peter Principle. Of course, that was before the advent of Barack Obama.

Or, as my mother used to say, Some Veg: first establish the fact that you’re a little bit crazy.

I thought that was the most compelling reason to stick with Bush. Don’t you want the bad guys to think your leader is a trigger-happy cowboy who shoots first and asks questions later? Isn’t that the best way to make sure your embassies don’t get attacked and your tourists don’t get molested abroad?

Scoob, in one of my less tasteful efforts, I did do Obammah.

Believe it or else, Obama has screwed the Middle East response up so much even Carter has felt the need to correct him (http://nation.foxnews.com/jimmy-carter/2012/09/13/jimmy-carter-corrects-obama).

Skeptic,

That was only so he could name drop and let everyone know that he and Morsi were BFFs. They probably give each other pedicures and compare notes on hair products and state-controlled energy policy. Meanwhile, Hezbollah has him on speed-dial, so they can ask his advice on nuclear technology.

Then he makes a funny

He added that Morsi was dedicated to peace and a democratic government.

Yeah, personally I think Obama’s error here was undiplomatically speaking the truth. The new Egyptian government may or may not be the ally that the old Egyptian government was, but has not proven itself to be an enemy. The problem, of course, is that diplomatically we NEED to maintain the polite fiction that they remain an ally until such a time as we definitively decide that they are not, otherwise we could push them into being an enemy when friend was still possible. Obama’s inexperience shows.

Believe it or not, mojo, my mother liked Jimmah. Thought he was “a good man.”

Someone who knew him described him as “spiteful” – that seems nearer the mark.

He was a classic “Reform” pol – which means that if you could convince him that the winds were blowing your way, he’d be off like a kite, until somebody else got to him. He had the moral spine of an invertebrate.

The only reason he got elected was the stench of the Nixon pardon coming off of Gerry Ford.

Oh goody, just what we all need: 35 years of this new Stuttering Clusterfuck of Miserable Failure self-righteously babbling while ineptly screwing around in world affairs. Damn, I wish Carter had been taken hostage & eaten by the Norks.

And being a Southerner. Carter swept the South, winning 10 of 11 “Confederate” states, the only Democrat to do that since FDR. In 1968, 1972, 1980, 1984, and 1988, Democrats won two Southern states total. Carter was the huge exception; he was the first Southern candidate since 1860. (Not counting LBJ, who was a Texan, instead.)

That’s not from The Devil’s Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce, which is formatted like a real dictionary:

POLITICIAN, n. An eel in the fundamental mud upon which the superstructure of organized society is reared. When he wriggles he mistakes the agitation of his tail for the trembling of the edifice. As compared with the statesman, he suffers the disadvantage of being alive.

The aphorism is a quote from Simon Cameron, a notoriously corrupt Pennsylvania politician of the Civil War era.

Shame this bumbling fool is still dribbling his senility around the globe on our behalf but we had to lose Reagan.
