"Only God-fearing President in my lifetime"...while I do have to agree with that part of what you said and I'll add, I think he was a good guy at heart and meant well.
But...the nicest guy around with the purest heart does not equate, necessarily, to being a good president...Carter was the perfect example of that. He was worse than worthless as president. The manufactured oil crisis. The dismal economy. The malaise fire side chats...put a sweater on. The DOW jones being announced on the news day after day after day as down, down, and down, I started calling it the DOWN Jones. Interest rates at 21 percent.
No, he sucked as President. One of the worst until Ocrapper who was only outdone by whatever that thing is occupying the white house at present.
Jimmy Carter's reward for all the houses he built for the poor was living long enough to see himself elevated from The Worst to third from the bottom.
