Description

Growing up in a conservative household in the 1980′s, I cannot tell you how badly President Jimmy Carter was mocked and demagogued. In conservative circles, it’s just accepted truth that Carter was the worst president ever. The mantra I heard over and over was essentially that no one had left the country in so much of a wreck as Carter, and took the heroic efforts of one washed-up B-movie actor turned career politician to right all of Carters’ wrongs. Over and over again I heard about the “misery” index, run away inflation and the energy crisis. I wasn’t old enough then to have done my own research and figured out that a lot was pinned on Carter that just simply shouldn’t have been, nor could I have known then that Carter’s energy policy was precisely what we needed then, and still need now. Still, no matter what to this day you could ask conservatives and they’d tell you that Carter left the country in a shambles so bad that it proves no Democrat is worthy of holding the office.
