Obama Is Jimmy Carter 2.0: The Evidence Continues to Pour InPosted: August 9, 2011
The evidence is mounting more than ever to suggest that President Obama is morphing into failed Democratic President Jimmy Carter.
The latest comparison was made by dour New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd in her column on July 30. This is some of what she said:
“Democratic lawmakers worry that the Tea Party freshmen have already ‘neutered’ the president,” as one told me. They fret that Obama is an inept negotiator. They worry that he should have been out in the country selling a concrete plan, rather than once more kowtowing to Republicans and, as with the stimulus plan, health care and Libya, leading from behind.
As one Democratic senator complained: ‘The president veers between talking like a peevish professor and a scolding parent.’ (Not to mention a jilted lover.) Another moaned: ‘We are watching him turn into Jimmy Carter right before our eyes.'”
Dowd who once loved Obama is now souring on her liberal-media-created sensation and now she believes that the comparison of Obama to Carter is a valid one.
I have been saying that Obama is looking more and more like Jimmy Carter for some time now, so I was pleased to see that others are observing the same similarities. When even Maureen Dowd is talking about how Carter-esque Obama looks you know there some meat to the comparison.
The above article provides a nice list of comparisons for those who have not been following this meme.
