2. He has doubled the spending of the presidents before him.
The 2009 budget, the last one submitted by the WPE, was $3.1T.
Jimmy Carter was not President in 2009.
Jimmy Carter didn't start two wars on credit, proceed to lose both with
disastrous tactics, have a depression and financial panic on his watch,
abrogate the habeas rights of a US citizen on his own say-so, authorize
torture of prisoners of war, and fire USAs midterm for political
reasons. Carter didn't ignore intelligence about an attack on US soil,
and he didn't let the planner of that attack escape in Afghanistan.
The head of Carter's FEMA was a personnel specialist with experience in
the War Department, the AEC, and the Civil Service Commission. In
particular, his only experience wasn't as the head of the American
Horse Breeders Association, and he didn't preside over the inundation
of New Orleans. During Carter's administration, the GSA didn't violate
the Hatch Act, and the VA outpatient system didn't turn into a scandal.
If you think Presidents control the job market, consider that the WPE
had an annual job growth of half a percent for his first term and
shrinkage in his second. Carter's average was 2%. Carter inherited a
deficit of $287B and passed on a deficit of $192B. The WPE inherited a
$304B surplus and passed on a $1460B deficit. (Yeah, those are constant
Otherwise yours would have been an amusing quip.
