Donald Trump, Jr., argues that the Biden administration is not so much he next FDR as the next Jimmy Carer. I have to admit that there are some good metaphors there.
I remember the Carter years. High fuel prices, raging inflation, spending out of control, a raging Russia, an ascendant Iran, a weakened military. Those were not good years. If fact, they were disastrous. Under Carter we had gasoline rationing, and interest rates over 10% at prime.
