Mea maxima culpa! Osama bin Laden, Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter

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.

  1. As an old CIA hand I might point out that the very first reports out were that a CIA team did the hit. That report immediately vanished but their is little doubt that CIA were the "show" runners and that the Seals were in there at CIA direction...but whatever the REAL story is,which none of us will ever know it was a damn nice job..well the double tap.
