Obama is looking more like the second coming of Carter every day.

Obama echoes Carter with ‘shoot first’ criticism of Romney




September 13, 2012

“Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” President Obama said in a CBS interview last night, criticizing Romney’s reaction to the embassy attack in Cairo. Romney criticized the Obama administration’s ‘apology’ in response to the attacks on the embassy and subsequent failure to condemn the attacks right away.

Obama’s remarks, however, echo frequent criticisms made by President Jimmy Carter of Ronald Reagan, then his opponent for the presidency.

Carter criticized Reagan’s views on foreign policy during his speech at the Democratic National Convention in 1980, slamming Reagan for living in a “fantasy world” and noting his inability to understand the “complex global changes” in foreign policy.

“It’s a make believe world. A world of good guys and bad guys, where some politicians shoot first and ask questions later,” Carter said, “No hard choices. No sacrifice. No tough decisions. It sounds too good to be true – and it is. The path of fantasy leads to irresponsibility. The path of reality leads to hope and peace.”

After Reagan’s nomination in July 1980, Carter criticized Republicans calling it “a party with a narrow vision, a party that is afraid of the future, a party whose leaders are inclined to shoot from the hip, a party that has never been willing to put its investment in human beings who are below them in economic and social status.”

As Philip Klein noted on Twitter, the Carter campaign ran fearful “man on the street” ads during the campaign, fretting that Reagan would be a president who would “shoot from the hip.”

Flashback 2008:

Barack Obama Used Troop Deaths To Ding Bush, McCain Support For Iraq In 2008

The Obama campaign hit Mitt Romney for using the “tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya” to “launch a political attack.” On a July 2008 appearance on CNN, then-Senator used the death of U.S. troops in Afghanistan as talking point to ding John McCain and President Bush for their support of the Iraq War.

You're a little late. JamesL already did the Talking points cut and paste on this nonsense.

Once again, slowly. Carter had a debate. Carter had a debate with a strong and smart orator, Mr. Reagan. Are we ok so far? Good.

Now, we have debates coming up, right? Obama just has to beat the hell out of Romney, got it? No comparison, right? OK, good.

Hope it sinks in, Romney is no Reagan, even with all his flaws.

The only part I agree with is that Carter/Reagan were a helluva lot more impressive than this current duo.

Obama is even worse than Carter. Carter didn't take office intending to destroy America. Obama promised the beginning of the end to America as we know it. The change Obama promised isn't the change the vast majority of Americans would like to see.
