(Phoenix, AZ) – Senator John McCain (R-AZ) said Tuesday that President Obama (D-IL/Kenya) is a worse president than Jimmy Carter (D-GA). He made this comparison when talking about the Obama administration’s handling of the Syrian civil war, which as all Americans know, is completely Obama’s fault.
This assessment comes from someone who thought that Sarah Palin (R-AK) would make a good president in the event of a catastrophe. For most, picturing Palin as the President of the United States was a catastrophe in itself.
McCain and Palin ran against Obama and Joe Biden (D-DE) in the 2008 presidential election. Jimmy Carter served as president from 1977-1981.
“Senator McCain stands by his assessment of President Obama’s job performance,” said a McCain spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “In fact, he thinks Obama is the worst president ever. After all, he lied about invading Iraq … oh, wait … he poorly handled the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina … oh, wait … he ignored intelligence about Osama bin Laden’s determination to attack the United States with airplanes … oh, wait … you’ll just have to take my word for it. Carter was bad, Obama’s worse.”
McCain and other conservatives want America to get more involved in Syria, showing that they have learned nothing from the country’s recent foreign interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq. As a presidential contender in 2007, he sang “bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran” during a campaign stop.
As one of the Keating Five, it’s always safe to bank on the assessment of someone who was found to have “used poor judgment” during the Lincoln Savings and Loan collapse of 1989.
