Since leaving office on that grand day when Ronald Reagan took the Presidential Oath in January of 1981, Jimmy Carter has been thought by many as the worst President in the modern era and among the worst in our Nations history. His weakness as a leader, progressive policies and ability to even look out of place among world leaders much less deal with them gave us hyper inflation, a decimated military and an over all feeling that our best days were behind us.
Never once through his bumbling and weakness as a President though did I even think that Carter did not love this country nor in his own misguided way have, in his heart at least, have the best interests of America in mind. I never thought for a moment that although he weakened our nation domestically and on the foreign front Carter never threatened the very principles our Nation was founded upon nor the Constitution in which he took an oath to, “preserve, protect and defend.”
I cannot say the same about Barack Obama. He has failed in every aspect of the Presidency as bad or worse than Jimmy Carter. But the major difference between he and the bumbling Carter is that from the very beginning of his Presidency, Obama has made it very clear in his words and actions that changing the fundamental principles and traditions that have been our heritage and what has made our country great is not only his dream but his goal as President.
Carter even through all of his faults loved this country and made it clear that he did. Obama on the other hand has shown a hatred for America and Americans that not only makes him far worse than Carter but dangerous to who we are and what this country has stood for throughout our history.
Now don’t get me wrong this is not a defense of Jimmy Carter by any means. Carter was a bumbling idiot who could not lead nor handle the Presidency which is why he failed so miserably as President. When he actually expressed to the American people in several speeches that we should accept a lesser way of living and his approach to the Soviet Union was an acceptance of the communist expansion and we had no choice but to allow it was not only one of the lowest points in our history but also one of our weakest.
In almost every aspect in comparison Obama has not only failed more than Carter but his goal of fundamentally changing America from a free Republic to a socialistic government ruling over forced dependency on the same for Americans pales Carter’s bumbling and his misguided handling of the Soviets. Carter bumbled and mishandled almost everything but sincerely thought he was doing the right thing.
Obama’s failure comes from an agenda that is destructive and a foreign policy that seeks to weaken America and place us on a balanced footing with every country in the world while appeasing our enemies. Unlike Carter this domestic and foreign nightmare at the hands of Obama is intentional and calculated to destroy the America that even the hapless Carter tried to defend and protect and rebuild it into a weak socialist utopia where money is redistributed by government and The United States is no longer a super power but an, “equal,” partner with, as Obama sees it, other nations we have, “oppressed,” by our imperialistic policy of the past.
Carter was a failure as President because he simply did not have the ability nor the strength as a leader to handle the complex and awesome responsibility of being the Chief Executive of The United States and the most powerful man in the world. Obama is a failure, yes because he does not have the ability to handle the Presidency, but in a much greater sense because he sees the Presidency as his destiny to rebuild America in a socialist image and even the playing field for the rest of the world.
Carter did try as well as he could to represent America and Americans but failed miserably. Though bumbling he was not divisive and looked upon himself as President of all Americans and sought to fulfill that responsibility. Obama only represents his own self interest and agenda. He favors whatever path looks most favorable to him at the moment and if he needs to back track later he will do so. He is the most divisive President in our history playing Americans against Americans by class, race and even religion.
Carter at least tried to do right by our country and our people. Obama could care less about both the country and the people. He only cares about his agenda and his vision of fundamentally correcting what he sees as flaws in our Constitution and our nations standing in the world. Which is also why even foreign leaders see Obama as a problem. Complain as they do the rest of the world does not want America as an equal partner but as the strength and power they can lean on when times of trouble comes.
Carter failed but was never a threat to who we are nor what our nation fundamentally stood for and the principles which have guided us since our birth as a country. Obama is a threat to both the people and the very foundation of our nation which also makes him extremely dangerous because through he and his agenda come the seeds of destruction of our freedom, our heritage, our strength and our very way of life.
