Obama is not Carter. Carter did not have the Chicago machine behind him. Carter was basically an honest man. Carter played by the rules. Carter did not have these 24 hour schmoozy news loops body kissing him all over. Carter was not black, thus we culd be honestly critical instead of being accused of all these supposed "racist code words". We could have a Reagan bumper sticker on our car without worrying about having the paint scratched. Need I go on? Oh yeah, Romney has his strengths, but Romney is not Reagan.
