"Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday that if he were back in the White House, he would work with Republicans and Democrats to secure more funding for affordable housing and urge more flexibility in resolving differences involving the critical issue."

"I would work as harmoniously as I could with other members of the Congress, and with both Democrats and Republicans, to figure out how we can face a time of great deficits."

Not exactly from the Obama playbook.

The Tea Party faction in Congress would eat Jimmy Carter alive. Now you know why Carter only served one term.

Carter served only one term because of the economic mess he caused for the American people. His efforts for the disassembly of the American military and those good paying civillian jobs, didn't help his chance for a second term.

I'm curious how any POTUS can create an "economic mess" much less within his first term? 
By that reasoning are we to blame W entirely for the 2008 meltdown?  That came well into his second term which must then mean it was his policies that derailed the markets and the economy.
