Poor Jimmy Carter, bless his bitter, old, anti-semitic heart. President Barack Obama has totally stolen his thunder. First, Obama had to horn in on Carter’s “I received a completely unwarranted Nobel Peace Prize” mantle. Now, this! What does Carter have left now? A few rancid cases of Billy Beer?
From Story Balloon:
It looks like we have another winning billboard making fun of the current administration. This time they an ad to point out how people have compared Obama to Carter’s horrible presidency. The billboard reads: They Can’t Call Me The Worst President Anymore!
Obama might be a tad confused. The sign was put up by an organization of small business owners. Having never worked in the private sector, it’s quite clear that Obama does not even realize that small business owners, you know, exist. All he knows is government work and he even stinks at that. That’s two Teachable Moments in one!
This isn’t the first billboard that has popped up recently. First was the George Bush “Miss Me Yet” billboard in Minnesota. And a Ronald Reagan billboard, featuring the idea of real Hope and Change ™ appeared recently as well. ABC news has more:
Obama truly is creating and saving billboards!
I never thought I’d see the day when there was a President worse than Carter. The similarities truly are uncanny, however. Rampant unemployment? Check! Bailing out auto companies? Check! Dismal and delusional foreign policy? Check! Attempting to grow government to unsustainable and freedom-squashing levels? Check!
Besides their symmetry in policies (or lack thereof), they are alike even down to names: Carter is fond of Billy Beer — Obama is buddy buddy with Billy Ayers. Spooky! Well, guess what, Carter and Obama? While that old "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me" axiom is true, I have a feeling that shame will be corrected in 2010 and in 2012. I’m certain that the rest of the Country is feeling the same way.
Obama’s Carter qualities may actually help us in that regard, ironically.
The Obama team — both political and economic wings — seems to feel that their base has nowhere else to go, and all they need to do is drift towards the right in a moderately confused fashion to assure re-election for the president.
Jimmy Carter had the same sort of idea.
Heck of a job, Barry!
