All the government is good at is throwing money at problems. We all know that wall street is nothing more than a money pump designed to milk the cows who decide to play with the big boys. Right now the boys are looking for the bottom so they can start buying again. All a big game. nothing to do about the Govt

People have been making piles of dough the past month going short on stocks. We went short on GM a month ago and liquidated our position 2 weeks ago. I wish I had waited longer. If you think the market's bottom is still further out, buy a future position on the DJI. It is an easy thing to do and a good bet if you are so sure BO will be a disaster.

I find it odd that lot's of people vote these two as the worst presidents of all time, yet they are the only two that made it through the white house without strapping us with more debt. I'd prefer a triple dose of Clinton before I take another Bush pill.
Right again Freddy

I bought my home during the Carter adminsistration and interest rates were in the mid teens. Not his fault. He was I believe and honest man which is hard to come by in politics. He also only "lusted in his heart." :lol:
Your right. He was just too nice of a guy to be a politician, look at the work he has done for Habitat for humanity (hands on work)

If we had listened to Carter on energy policy 30 years ago we wouldn't be in the middle east now and the twin towers would still be standing.

He was a lousy communicator and not much of a personality, but he was right.

He sure was right about the Ayatollah Khomeini too, wasn't he? That is why the towers are gone, not oil.

The towers are gone because the US put troops in Saudi Arabia to protect Saudi and Kuwaiti oil. This is not really disputed by anyone who studies the region. If you read UBL's declaration of war on the US that is very clearly stated.

Go ahead and read it. Original sources are much better than hysterical blogs.

Oh God, couldn't you have used a source other than the PBS? That is a good as an outright lie around here, regardless if it was a recorded interview.

And just where did that idiot come from? When Carter sent that "harmless man of God" back to Terhan, he gave us UBL.

The Ayatollah was the replacement for the Shah. Which SURPRISE the USA installed by having the CIA overthrow Mohommed Mossadegh in 1953.

That was brought to you by Eisenhower. The guy who warned us against the "military-industrial complex". Guess he would know......

This thread is foolish. Trying to pick the "worst" president is like trying to pick the "best" STD.
