I, too, lived in the Carter era. Unlike Bush, Carter acted with
the necessary calm and resolve that the "hostage" crisis
called for. True, his prudent act of compassion for the hostages'
safety and well-being probably cost him the election, but as
a result of his action, the hostages were safely returned home.
On the contrary, thanks to Bush and his pre-emptive strikes on
a country that lacked weapons of mass destruction, we are now
involoved in trying to put a military fix on a political problem.
In addition Carter also took on Big Oil in an effort to have
them pay their fair share of taxes, and wasn't Carter the first
president to encourage the use of alternative sources of fuel,
to lessen our dependence on oil? What stopped him? His own
party, the Republicans, and a cast of a thousand lobbyists.
It's true, it's hard to trust a guy who wanted to give the Panama
Canal back to Panama, admitted to having lust in his heart, and
now spends his time building homes for the homeless.
Yeah, Mark.... Bush is definitely a man of the times, Unfortunately.
