Carter's Second Term

Jimmy Carter’s one-term presidency was marked by a general degradation in the stature of the United States throughout the world community. The most unique degradation came from the crushing blow of oppressive economic policies that gave our economy Inflation and Recession at the same time … an effect that was never possible given the illustration shown by the college Economics 101 “Bell Curve”, where RECESSION is located on one side of the curve and INFLATION located on the other and an optimum economic balance is theoretically achieved smack dab in-the-middle of the curve (never should the two economic condition situations exist together).

Our country suffered additional insults under the Carter administration. The fuel crisis highlighted by short fuel supplies and “ODD/EVEN” rationing, Carter's return of the Panama Canal Zone to Panama which signaled a major reversal of U.S. claims of influence over parts of Latin America dating to the Monroe doctrine, the 1979 takeover of the American embassy in Iran and holding of hostages by Iranian students, a failed rescue attempt of the hostages by a Carter lead military, the "Misery Index", and the invasion of Afghanistan by Soviet Russia (an additional foreign policy nightmare that highlighted our weakness of influence throughout the world).

The Democrat Party stands at the precipice of, once again, placing a naive neophyte socialist with little executive experience (even less than Carter) into the Presidency of the United States with the nomination of the Junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama. A gentleman who professes that when he first assumes power as the President of the United States, he will begin the withdrawal of our military from Iraq immediately, and meet the leaders of rouge nations throughout the world … Without Pre-Condition.

This is a weblog focused on the potential run-up to and somewhat predictable outcomes of the politically-radical Obama Administration ... Carter’s Second Term!
