Jimmy Carter 39th President of The United States of America
A: "Not too well...I got a 20%. I really Jimmy Carter-ed it"
"I knew Jimmy Carter...I worked with Jimmy Carter...and you sir may be the worst failure in modern history, but you are no Jimmy Carter"
Sold a book that sucks
He lacked the ability to work with Congress - even members of his own party - Democratic - couldn't work with him. Apparently, he antagonized many members of congress with his preachy & pious attitude.
Senator Edward M. Kennedy's 1980 presidential race against an incumbent Democratic president served notice of the discontent that many rank & file Democrats had for President Carter.
History will view the Carter presidency as below average in terms of the presidential rankings of presidential achievement & performance.
As a former president, Jimmy Carter has done many many good things - in fact, he has been a far better former president than he was as president. His humanitarian projects have been superb - he deserves much credit & respect for his post-presidential work. In many ways, Jimmy Carter has - with much success - defined a first class extremely productive post presidency.
Jimmy Carter is a very honorable, decent and kind human being -- he was perhaps too kind & gentle for the rough & tumble world of presidential politics.
It was an honor to see President Carter receive the Nobel Peace Price - a well deserved honor for all of his humanitarian work.
