The Carter – Obama Parallel!!!

Is this History repeating itself or what???

Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama have several similarities that parallel!!!
Let’s lay out what we know President Carter faced as he came into his Presidency and thru-out:
1- Carter’s presidency followed an embarrassing Republican tenure with Gerald Ford completing the impeached Richard Nixion’s term…
2 – Carter also ran on change and being a Washington outsider…
3 – Carter was known as the smiling president (a nice southern governor with strong southern valves.)…
4 – Carter’s term followed a very long hated war half-way around the world…
5 – Carter was faced with a problem with the Iran Hostage Crisis…
6 – Carter had to deal with fuel crisis and fluxuating prices…
7 – Carter had to deal with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan destablizing the region…

I believe that most American view Charter’s Presidency a failure. Ronald Regan ran against him in 1981, winning with ease and locking down the presidency for the republicans for the next twelve years… Changer and the outsider combined to equal failure…

Now let’s look at Obama and his potential presidency…
1 – Obama is running as an agent of change and Washington outsider just like Carter…
2 – Obama is following the very Unpopular Presidency of George Bush because of a costly war and poor economy…
3 – Obama will inherit a very poor relationship with Iran and for that matter, around the world…
4 – Obama will also have to deal with High Fuel cost and price fluxuations that effect all American citizens… Like Carter he could be blamed for all these problem…
5 – Obama will also inherit a very unpopular long war in Iraq and Afghanistan… There we see Afghanistan again…
6 – Obama is known as the gentleman or nice guy…
7 – Obama will have to overcome America’s falling dollar and very high deficits brought on due poor oversight by the Bush White House and this costly war…

As you can see, these are turbulent times that must be navigated with skillful, time tested, tactics that protect us from the bad guys, improve the economy and create new jobs … I believe Obama is a great orator but does Obama have the experience needed to navigate this ship through this fearful mine field???

Should we roll the dice?

Cross our fingers??

And take our chances???

I don’t think so…

I believe Hillary has the experience, the skills, and the doggedness to “Clean-up” Bush’s mess!!! It took a Clinton to clean-up the first Bush’s mess and bring the economic back in the back and restore our reputation around the world… Let’s let Hillary do “Be the Clean-up Woman!!!”

By the way, Carter was a Naval Officer…
Hummmmmm!!!

Now you know me, I like to keep it interesting… There is a way of accomplishing both…
Let’s really make “His-Story and Her-Story… Now all together boys and girls, “HeIrS-Story!” And you know what that means… 🙂
Here we go again,

“The Dream Ticket!”

If Obama calls himself a unifier but can’t start in his own house… Then Obama is as a sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal… And you know what I mean…
