On this President's Day, I want to go on record that I support Barack Obama and look forward to voting for him this year.
I will go so far as to say that of all the U.S. presidents during my lifetime, President Obama is the one I admire and support the most. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
(Link is to his PolitiFact record evaluating his statements.) - Stephen Mack
I'd say the same, though I don't remember Carter's or most of Reagan's administrations very well. - John (bird whisperer)
I still have a soft spot for Carter. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I was young during Carter's administration but I remember the gas lines well. I maintain he was a lackluster president, but an incredibly effective ex-president. - Stephen Mack
He seems to be like John Quincy Adams in that respect. - John (bird whisperer)
The more I think about it, the more I come to believe that Nixon inexorably screwed Carter by scrapping Bretton Woods. Stagflation was pretty much inevitable. It's kind of like how W may very well end up screwing Obama by having bequeathed him the Great Recession. - Victor Ganata
Victor, the Nixon shock, you mean? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Stephen Mack
I admire Carter a great deal. He made some mistakes but if this country had continued in the direction Carter set us on, we'd be #1 in solar power right now instead of Germany/China (and have the manufacturing jobs that would bring), we would have spent tax dollars on education and infrastructure instead of several wars in the Middle East. - Spidra Webster
Gary, I'd nominate Universal Healthcare (for ending rescission if nothing else) [http://www.politifact.com/truth-o...], financial reform [http://www.politifact.com/truth-o...], and ending the war in Iraq [http://www.politifact.com/truth-o... and also killing Bin Laden, http://www.politifact.com/truth-o...]. I'm also pleased with ending use of torture [http://www.politifact.com/truth-o...] and the beginning of reforms for No Child Left Behind [http://www.politifact.com/truth-o...]. - Stephen Mack
Restoring honor and dignity to the White House. - Steele Lawman
