WHY would the Democrats put Jimmy Carter up criticizing Bush's record? He sure didn't do a good job when HE had the chance.
In fact, If I recall the economy of Jimmy Carter was called Stagflation. High Unemployement, High interest, high taxes, no growth economy under his watch.
In fact, Militant Islam got a foothold in Iran under his watch. In fact, terrorism got a foot hold under his watch. Remember the Iranian hostage crisis? Remember the botched attempt at a rescue.
In fact, the moral of the US was much worse when HE was president. Why anyone would listen to him is beyond me.
