Yeah old Jimmy Carter, Peanut Farmer from Georgia, had some problems. Not least of which was his brother Billy (above) who along with selling his name for a model of his pick-up also put his now famous name behind a brand of beer, “Billy beer”.
As far as Jimmy’s presidency and his goals in foreign policy, ambrose says he was the least experienced, in fp, of the post-wwii presidents, and that his goals were wildly impractical, and none were achieved. Interestingly he was also the first postwar president who had not been a congressman, but rather had been a governor. Why does that matter?
Its a rather long list of problems Carter had. From arms reduction treaties, to iran, and don’t forget, Panama, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Chile, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Where he succeeded and where and why he failed, might be an interesting start to some comments.
