Are we trying to convince people that Jimmy Carter was a great President? If so, why would you use President Trump as the benchmark?

Can you say Iranian crisis?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_hostage_crisis

Jimmy Carter was a great guy, good husband, excellent farmer, decent governor, but as President he failed miserably. And citing his low number of EO's and legislations is hardly a compliment of his work in the most demanding job in our government.

Iran is the nemesis it is today because of his decisions (and indecisions). And frankly his involvement in North Korean negotiations for President Clinton, laid the groundwork for their Nuclear capabilities today.

Builds Houses???? Habitat for Humanity right?

A great program Carter founded yes but,,,;Jimmy hasn't held a hammer for 20 years or more. Anyone here ever participated? I have. Good work for the many who "earn" their equity with sweat. But it is a private foundation, not a government one. Manned by private citizen volunteers, not bureaucrats.

It is not the job of our government to provide housing. President Trump's job right now is not to build houses, but make it possible for all Americans to have the opportunity to build or buy them. So at the end of the day, your comparison is a foolish joke at best, and an insult to honest working people at worst.

But please, do enjoy your morology.

That'd be more difficult than Paris Hilton goin' on a 5-game winning strak on Jeopardy.

At least Trump didn't hit the greens right after Americans were beheaded in a sh*t-hole desert.

Correction;
My bad.

Apparently Jimmy has held a hammer recently.
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/fo...-a7842551.html

But then he isn't PRESIDENT and has the time.
Speaking of which, why isn't Former President Obama swinging a hammer?

I still maintain it is an unfair comparison.

He has not finished the course on how to use a hammer, I suspect.

On the contrary, and I recognize the satire, Jimmy Carter is a damn good worker and furniture designer and builder.

Problem is furniture building and Presidenting are two different things. Carter was not our shining moment in the countries leadership.

I applaud wholeheartedly his home building efforts. Beats the crap out of Section 8. People voluntarily giving their time and money and recipients having skin in the game, all without government intervention, is a good thing.
