Carter is trying to build himself a legacy that doesn't include "that guy between Ford and Reagan, he sure sucked, didn't he?"
Carter clearly belongs to the Democrat camp which believes "George Bush is a moron and Dick Cheney is calling the shots".
Hey Jimmy! Yeah, you, peanut farmer! Cheney is the vice-president, he's not running for office, and at least this administration isn't presiding over:
- double-digit inflation
- a huge economic recession
- an energy crisis, including gasoline shortages and rationing
- doing basically nothing after an act of war was perpetrated against us
- a botched covert rescue operation attempting to rectify the latter
Comments posted after that article pretty much hit the nail on the head: Carter doesn't have the right to say anything about how this administration has handled things, much less call it the "worst in history".
