If you loved Carter, you’re going to love Biden

Back in 1976, I voted for President Ford after supporting Governor Reagan in the primaries.  It was a close election, but Texas and a few others went blue that year, and Governor Carter was in. Around 10 AM the next day, the election went for Mr. Carter, and I felt a bit depressed.  How did this happen?  After a few days, I said to my friends that the country would regret this decision.  Honestly, it was the same feeling I had when Mr. Biden assumed the presidency.

A day ago, I saw this article by Daniel Gallington, and it makes a lot of sense:

The reason Mr. Biden will fail so soon is that many more millions than voted for him will realize — and quickly — that they made a mistake.  In some ways, it will be a similar reaction … to the election of Jimmy Carter in 1976, when many of his voters quickly realized they had screwed up.

So why/how did we elect the wrong person — both in 1976 and again in 2020?  The exact reason for this was/is the focused public voter reaction on a single and very specific set of circumstances, rather than as an endorsement of a generalized political agenda.

Isn’t that the truth? 

President Biden’s administration will quickly fail for two reasons, or maybe I should say two executive orders:

  1. Gas prices will go up because you can’t destroy supply without affecting the cost at the pump.  It’s great to talk about “green energy,” but we are still going to put something that comes from fossil fuels in our cars.
  2. The border will explode.  You can’t tell people you are going to reverse President Trump’s border policies without giving inspiration to many to walk north and get legalized.

Just wait, buyer’s remorse is coming and coming fast.  In a year, many voters will remember President Trump’s low gasoline prices and the order on the border.  They will want those good old days back, including the tweets!

  1. The electorate has, uh, deteriorated significantly since 1976, not that it was ever all that discerning.

    But great photo–Biden looks totally phony, and Carter looks, well, cringeworthy at best.

  2. Well, did the pathetic and corrupt hack of Biden really “win” – at record numbers? Can someone say installed… I think the problem this time around is more profound and does not pertain to the electorate (although, I agree, it has deteriorated).

    After all, Ford has the distinction of being the first, and to date the only person to serve as president without being elected to either the presidency or the vice presidency. In that sense, Carter’s victory made far more sense than Biden’s.

    As for his voters, the weak-minded, stupid, and cultish usually get rude awakenings. Soon they will also be turning off CNN and finding a new reason to exist.
