The best thing that Jimmy Carter ever did for America was to leave office



I guess you missed it when Carter stopped all those skyjackings from occurring. He threatened to stop all air traffic to the offending countries, and that did the trick. It's not surprising you didn't hear of it, though; part of the deal was that it was kept secret so that the offenders could save face, because they'd never back down publicly. He couldn't take credit for it and it definitely cost him in the election, and yet he did the right thing anyway.

An outstanding piece of foreign policy maneuvering. Oh, and don't forget his stated desire to wean the US from fossil fuels. Then Reagan reversed it and got us hopelessly hooked, also while giving weapons to terrorists.

So you've got Carter defeating terrorists, and Reagan supplying them. It's not surprising you'd support Reagan over an honorable man.
