There is an optimist's convoluted view of stupid, and that is that it cures itself, one way or the other.

The Democans must be running for the November bunkers, heads down to dodge tomato projectiles. Soylent Greens have gotten their wish, a numbskull who listened to them. Republicrats will rally and save the Democans by arguing there is another way to kill the economy and reduce CO2.

Prog vs Prog, the drama rolls on, and when all the lemmings rush the cliff, it is hard not to get swept up in their hubris care taking river of good intentions.

Putin must be laughing his head off.

"The lawlessness of Hitler's Germany, beneath a veneer of legal forms, was absolute. As Goering put it, "The law and the will of the Fuhrer are one." Hans Frank: "Our constitution is the will of the Fuhrer." Hitler worked entirely through decrees and ordinances, as opposed to law, here again resembling Lenin, who never showed the slightest interest in constitution-making."

Ol' Jimmy's looking better and better in hindsight. He may have not done all that much for the military (in fact, he was pretty bad in fighting for the military budget...) but he at least nominally believed in the need for a military that could project force around the world.

Obama... well, it says a lot when Jimmy Carter's looked at with increasing respect in hindsight.

I see no evidence that Carter hated the US. With the current putz his contempt for the country oozes from every pore.

My impression of Jimmy Carter was that he tried to govern by opinion poll, unfortunately opinion polls at the time clearly demonstrated that people wanted to have it both ways on all issues. Your current president's governing philosophy would appear to be based more on Saul Alinsky/Frankfurt School.
