Does anyone else remember the world conflict/turmoil during the Carter presidency?

Seems that what is old is new again. The world is currently in huge turmoil, civil unrest is at a high pitch, oil prices going through the roof, inflation is at hand. We just need some odd/even gas days, lines at the pump and a few hostages and it's 1980 all over again.

Oh, and Oblama's approval ratings are at an all time low. Must suck to be him or one of his devoted grovelers.

Yes. But it's way worser now than during Carter 1.0.

I truly don't know where this is leading.

What would you say the sum of all those events equals...or what is the common denominator that each of those events has.

I can even tell U the week that this all started..

I know where this is leading. I have described it in exquisitely painful detail many times here on this board.

It's all about lack of leadership in the White House and the world's lack of respect. Hate to name drop.

Agreed. Once Carter bungled the hostage rescue (444 days in captivity for those folks!) they realized they were dealing with a militarily ineffective leadership and it was open season on the US and US interests.

If McCain were in office right now, we'd at least be having foreign governments and unaffiliated outlaws fearing and respecting the USA, not mocking it openly and thinking they can have their way with us.

The locus of the problem is systemic and not personality specific. The personality in question adds to the problem with his method of governing.

the week after the elections wherein obama won the presidency and the rest of us lost. actually, it started when GW gave the 'stimulus' handouts. its been accelerating ever since.

does anyone else find it interesting that the saudi monarchy is giving out stimulus handouts?

the sum tally of that list of problems is a vote of "no confidence" by the banks and by the people.

your idea of "way up" is significantly different than mine.

Dumass[sic]? Wow Rweeb, you are going schoolyard, aren't you? You'll probably want to tone that down just a notch or two.

Not at all - that's just RWeeb spilling a little blood in his own way.
