The Barack Obama/Jimmy Carter battle at the bottom
As fallible human beings it is extremely important that we can look at ourselves critically and be able to say, "Hey, I made a mistake." I have made one of those mistakes and I am here today to come clean, clear the air and provide a remedy.
For some time now I have been saying how lucky Jimmy Carter is to have had Barack Obama ascend to the White House. How being known as the worst president of all time is a tag that no one would ever want to wear, but that is about where Jimmy Carter always placed. Until Obama of course.
After two plus years in office I would say, Barack Obama had easily supplanted Jimmy Carter at the bottom of the totem poll position. And believe me that was no easy trick!
I WAS WRONG ! Barack Obama/Jimmy Carter flip-flop!
In my book the decision to put Jimmy Carter back squarely on the bottom rung and move Barack Obama up one notch is a no-brainer. All that it took was this:
A) Jimmy Carter: The miserable failure of Operation Eagle Claw attempting to free the Iranian hostages back in 1980.
B) Barack Obama: Osama bin Laden is dead!
Congratulations President Obama. At least in this case it was a job well done.
