Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, this is my point of view.  I'm not a historian but I do have a memory of what I've lived through. My "Presidential Memory" begins with the assassination of JFK (I'm 11 years old; wasn't paying attention to world affairs, etc. at that time; just knew the guy was dead, so JFK doesn't count ... you always get brownie points for dying on the job) and then follows:

  1. LBJ ... war-profiteering scumbag

  2. Nixon ... don't get me started

  3. Ford ... son of don't get me started

  4. Carter ... the only bright light in my memory

  5. Reagan ... the true beginning of the end

  6. Bush I ... senior sack of shit

  7. Clinton ... the sociopathic set-up man for

  8. Bush Jr. ... and here we are.

These are the Presidents that I compare Carter to.  Go ahead ... you rank them.  Let me know how that works out.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
