    1980 Presidential Election: Carter vs. Reagan

    Timing and charisma are everything. Carter had an underwhelming presidency, unable to work with Congress well and unable to persuade Americans. His presidency also saw the hostage situation, stagflation and the invasion of Russia. Reagan, who would've been seen as too conservative, thrived in...

    Jimmy Carter research led me to Suharto and East Timor

    Hi all, I've been reading a lot about Jimmy Carter recently and trying to better evaluate his presidency in retrospect. It seems to me that he wasn't as bad as he's made out to be when compared to chaps like Harding, so I wanted to follow this line of thought in my personal studies. I came...

    Was Jimmy Carter the opposite of a doughface?

    If a doughface was a northerner with southern sympathies, wouldn't Jimmy Carter be a southerner with northern sympathies (in a good context obviously). So, he related to the needs, lifestyles and values of the south without accepting any of the bigotry. Definitely a perfect pick in the sense...

    In Defense of Jimmy Carter

    I'm not saying Jimmy Carter was a good president. I'm saying that he wasn't one of the worst presidents. When all's said and done, I think he's average compared to the other 40+ men who took office. And yes, before you ask, I've had to wait 3 hours on line for gas before. He was overshadowed...

    Is Jimmy Carter unfairly maligned?

    He's been in the news a lot more recently following the success of Argo. Over the years his administration has become a byword for malaise and indecision but is that fair? By all accounts Carter was an very clever man, had a degree in nuclear engineering and would probably have been an admiral...

    Why did carter release collaze?

    Who attempted to assassinate Truman? And was this the right thing to do? We're many people not upset about this? Why did Truman shorten his sentence from death to life in prison anyway?
