History doesn't repeat, it rhymes as has been said, but this is very much like Jimmy Carter. I was a baby banker and bank officer at a regional bank during Carter. It was traumatic. Carter destroyed oil and gas, instituted boycotts, inflation was out of control by printed money. Capital was in rebellion, flight and hoarding. Business was collapsing. Banks were in trouble. His foreign policy was a disaster leading to the collapse of the Shah of Iran and the rise of fundamentalism in the middle east (He kissed up with the Ayatollah). He gave away the Panama Canal, a continuing national security risk. He was lecturing and cranky to the American people, proposed people should give up things like light and heat and travel and in fact turned off municipal and state lights in the country. Lowered the speed limit to 55 mph, making private auto trips, difficult, long and expensive. Keeping families apart, just like Biden's lockdown. He employed his Puritan ethics over the country. Biden is far from a Puritan, that is a difference, he appears Satanic, Biden champions all sort of perversion and freakishness. I hate what misery may be ahead for the country. Wish I could see an off ramp.
Amen Nikki! People have forgotten just how bad Carter was and how much he hurt the country. He believed the Ayatollah Khomeini was a reformer and supported him over lthe Shah. When told the Shah was on the phone Carter gleefully shouted "F$^k the Shah!" in contradiction to his carefully crafted image of a good clean Christian man. He made us a laughing stock. There was the "killer bunny" incident where he beat a rabbit with a paddle in a canoe. There was his hemmerhoid surgery. There was his "I have lusted in my heart" interview with Playboy. And his ridiculous sweaters to stay warm since he turned the heat way down. He blamed America for his mistakes "malaise". He was sanctimonious and stupid. He lied, about being a nuclear physicist (he was a tech on anuclear sub and had take a class or two in physics). Democrat House Speaker Tip O'Neal said of his Administration "those guys came in like Pricks and went out the same way!k". Oil prices were sky-high, when you could get them. He imposed wage and price controls. He cause stagflation,,something the Keynsian economists he was listening to said was impossible. Interest rates rose to almost 20%. Inflation up, interest rates up. economic growth way down. We were laughing stocks too. The Ayatollah held American hostage for so long Ted Koppel made a permanent program from his special report "America held hostage". Reagan's landslide couldn't come early enough. Sadly most people forget that because the media immediately started trying to rehabilitate Carter's legacy and now most people are unaware of just what a buffooon that guy was. But I'd take him in a heartbeat over Joe Biden.

People have a very different perception of him now because the media actively promoted lies that made him look good.
