Much, much worse
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid recently stated that President Bush is the worst president that this nation has ever had. Either Senator Reid has a memory lapse or he has reached the age of senility.
As I recall, when Jimmy Carter was in the Oval Office, we had stagflation, Russia invaded Afghanistan, Iran took over the American Embassy in Tehran and held umpteen hostages, Mr. Carter allowed the overthrow of the Shah of Iran, gasoline lines lasted for months and the economy was in the tank.
In the midst of all this, the country was in a state of malaise (his assessment), wondering what little Jimmy would do next — give away the Panama Canal? Perhaps Mr. Reid should review his history to jar his memory. Carl E. Jones San Jose, California
