  • I liked Bill Clinton better than any president.
    My Mom used to say, "ou have more excuses than Carter has pills."
    I kow she did not make it up, but it was still funny when she would say it.

  • He was a HORRIBLE president. He was weak in foreign affairs and not much better on domestic issues. When he was president they invented the "misery index". Inflation was in the double digits and interest rates were in the high teens for a mortgage and in the 20's for other credit.

  • No. He was very hard on small business; tax rates and mortgage interest rates were at an all-time high; he blew international policy on just about every front; and inflation was sky high.

  • My Mom used to say, "ou have more excuses than Carter has pills."

    Funny saying but very old and it's not about Jimmy Carter. There used to be a medication Carter's Liver Pills. Apparently there were a LOT of little pills in those boxes/bottles.
