President Carter is smart ... the American public dumb
President Carter stands out amongst presidents as he didn't go around starting wars, he pursued a very 'quiet' US policy. Carter fought the economic woes of inflation and unemployment. By the end of his administration, he could claim an increase of almost 8,000,000 jobs and a decrease in the budget deficit, measured in percentage of the GNP.
He reformed the civil service, he expanded the national park system including 103 million acres of Alaska territory. He created the Department of Education, strengthened the pension system, and imported record numbers of women, blacks, and Hispanics into Government. He also deregulated the trucking and airline industries.
BUT he made no wars.
He has used his retirement for the betterment of others - no subsequent president can claim THAT!
And what he said about Snowden is so right.
