McCain Calls Carter “Lousy” President

By Wyatt Earp | June 28, 2008

Whoo hoo! Miss Mud Puddle can no longer refer to me as Captain Obvious. That title now belongs to Senator John McCain.

Jimmy Carter was a lousy President. No kidding. In other news, water is wet, Michael Moore is fat, and New Yorkers are obnoxious.

(CNN) — John McCain directed his trademark straight talk toward a former president, flatly calling Jimmy Carter a “lousy” commander in chief.

The Arizona senator has long attempted to portray Barack Obama’s policies as in the mold of Carter’s, though the Republican has previously held back criticizing Carter so directly.

But in an interview with the Las Vegas Sun published Friday, McCain was decidedly more blunt than he has been in the past. McCain, who is a proponent of nuclear reprocessing, was asked why he thought Carter was against the process when he was president.

“Yes, because Carter was a lousy president,” McCain quipped. “This is the same guy who kissed Brezhnev.” (H/TCNN)

It could have been worse: Carter could have slipped Leonid the tongue. Ha!

    Maybe Carter had a thing for the bushy eyebrows.

    Finally, someone in politics, of a high rank, has stated what I even knew as a child. It only took a couple of decades.

    RT – Yeah, they’re a little slow on the uptake.

    Well of course he was. I remember his malaise ridden term very well. Luckily, I didn’t live where there were gas lines (there are some advantages to being in small town Kentucky). The entire atmosphere of his presidency was a gloomy one. Thank God for the optimism and clear thinking of Ronald Reagan.

    I was only 12 but I remember those gas lines. In California if your plate ended in a even number you got gas on an even day, if odd then on odd days. He was possibly the worst ever!

    Hey, whats wrong with bushy eye brows??!!!!!

    Ky person – Can we vote for Reagan this year?

    Admiral – Slowly, but Shirley.

    Sssteve – Bushy eyebrows are the least of your problems. What about your bushy back hair? Ha!
