Carter actually comes off pretty damn well in that span.

Not sure that _any_ president during my lifetime has NOT been a "disaster" in one significant way or another (or in many ways) -- and I was born around the time Eisenhower was elected.
LBJ was actually a pretty good president, although his handling of Vietnam is a brought on his legacy.

Carter is actually the person who started off our current cycle by embracing the Chicago School’s policies, transferring wealth and power to concentrated finance. So while he might be less bad than his peers, his tenure was still destructive. As an expresident he has been exemplar. I wish more would follow his lead.

The Bernie Sanders Fox News town hall last night was in a Pennsylvania county which went for Obama twice then Trump. This is a very real group of people. And the Democrats’ inability (some would say “refusal”) to win them over through working class policies and politics will continue to put Trumps in office.

I can't believe I'm saying this but can we please talk about the Ron Howard movie instead?
