Do you remember back in 2008/2009 when it was said that Obama’s presidency would be like Jimmy Carter’s second term?
Dan Balz, WaPo—
When President Obama was elected in 2008, his victory signaled a generational change and the prospect of renewal for the Democratic Party. Instead, the opposite has occurred. Over the past six years, the party has been hollowed out.
You may also remember that some of us said that Carter’s second term was a best case scenario.
Politico reports that Jimmy Carter is critical of Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS.
Neville Chamberlin was unavailable for comment.
Writing about President Obama, Glenn Reynolds notes—
So a couple of weeks ago he was being called incompetent by Jimmy Carter. Now he’s being lectured on commitment by Bill Clinton.
American Glob notices that Democrats always seem to cite a Republican president when they want to compare Barack Obama to someone successful. (H/T, Instapundit)
The only Republican I would put in the same league as Barack Obama is Herbert Hoover, and I see him as more like other Democrats such as Jimmy Carter or James Buchanan.
Stacy McCain has a post up about a Democrat congresscritter who has introduced a constitutional amendment to repeal the 22nd Amendment, the one that put the two-term limits on Presidents. Yes, some Democrats are already talking about a third term for Barack Obama.
I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating. In 2008, some folks expected that Barack Obama’s first term would be, in effect, Jimmy Carter’s second term. I was one of the people who viewed that as a best case scenario. Given the abundance of coverups, it may be that Barack Obama’s second term will seem like Richard Nixon’s third term.
Remember the riff about the Obama Administration being Jimmy Carter’s second term, and how some of us predicted that as a best case scenario?
Does it seem that Barack Obama’s second term is turning into Richard Nixon’s third?
