In an interview with CNBC, Jimmy Carter says he would have been reelected had he taken military action against Iran.

“I could have wiped Iran off the map with the weapons that we had, but in the process a lot of innocent people would have been killed, probably including the hostages, and so I stood up against all that, all that advice, and then eventually my prayers were answered and every hostage came home safe and free.

No thanks to him, of course.

Seriously? There are people who think this?

Carter is likely the reason the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. Weakness invites aggression. See also Putin, Ukraine; ISIS; Behghazi; etc.

That even a President as bad as Barack Obama won a second term must really be a hard pill to swallow for Carter.

It would have taken a lot more than military action against Iran to give that wet blanket a victory over Ronald Reagan.
