You must remember different economic times under Carter than I do. I 
was graduated from college in 1978 and remember the terror of looking 
for a job (there weren't any) if graduate school plans didn't work 
out, rampant inflation and ridiculously high interest rates(18 
percent mortgages). My memory is of a country with little or no 
optimism or plan for the future-much like Britain before Thatcher.

For better or worse, that changed during Reagan's tenure.

Carter did give us disco and "Saturday Night  Fever", though.


P.S. -I'm not trying to start a flame war over particular policies or 
political agendas, just trying to think back on why Carter was so
