That's just more immature memes.
Carter inherited the sins of Johnson and Nixon, who jointly took us off silver and bled us dry in vietnam - not to mention getting public confidence back in the very idea of a presidency, after nixon screwed the pooch on audio tape. You don't have any idea the level of sin-eating that Carter had to do. And it was his monetary policies - which reagan continued - that got inflation under control. Reagan is credited with "saving us" with the very monetary policies which carter implemented and reagan continued.
Here's a little puzzle for you. The pet economists of wall street - that priesthood which justifies and rationalizes their parasitism - teach that inflation, unemployment and interest rates are interactive indices which push each other so predictably and inexorably that any time two of the three are in double digits, the third will be pushed into single digits.
Carter had all three in double digits at the same time.
But that rule is still taught.
Why would a falsified "truism" continue to be taught to the priesthood, son? Maybe the fix was in to keep carter a one term pResident?
The fix was not in...people couldn't afford the greatness Carter wanted to bestow upon them...they needed to eat TODAY....
