This writer sees a strong resemblance between Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter:
IS IT POSSIBLE that America really wants to return to those depressing days of gas lines and leisure suits? Of malaise and shock over the aggressiveness of America’s enemies? The days when the policies Obama is advocating raised unemployment rates, interest rates and inflation rates into the double digits? When America’s enemies looked the President of the United States in the eye — and found he really wanted to kiss them on the cheek?

Speaking of Obama and Carter, here’s what Obama said on April 11 regarding the former President’s overtures toward Hamas:
I’m not going to comment on former President Carter. He’s a private citizen. It’s not my place to discuss who he shouldn’t meet with.
…and on April 16, he “clarified” his position a bit:
Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama on Wednesday disagreed with former President Jimmy Carter’s overtures toward Hamas, saying he would not talk to the Islamist group until it recognized Israel and renounced terrorism. …
“That’s why I have a fundamental difference with President Carter and disagree with his decision to meet with Hamas,” Obama said.
