Didn't help our struggling economy, horrible during Iranian hostage crisis. He also gave away the panama canal in which Theodore Roosevelt worked so hard to acquire.

The Carter years were great for me, but that's probably just a coincidence like most all the stuff he gets blamed for.

In 1973, while Governor of Georgia, Carter filed a report on his 1969 UFO sighting with the International UFO Bureau in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. However, in 2007, Carter stated that he did not remember why he filed the report and that he believes he probably only did it at the request of one of his children. He also stated he does not believe it was an alien spacecraft, but rather believes it was likely some sort of military experiment being conducted from a nearby military base.

Jimmy Carter was one of the most intelligent and nicest men ever to be our president. He also was , by far, the worst president of my lifetime! He looked at any problem, thought it over, and made the most harmful choice for America.

I appreciate his morality and how he has lived his personal life. But I don't think he did much good for our country. In fact he weakend our military so much that a piddly-ass country took hostages from the American Embassy and kept them for over 400 days! Our attempt to rescue them ended in disaster because of the cuts to the military. They were not let go until Reagan was in office. I'm glad he encouraged Israel and Palistine to comprimise and get along, but he should have used that energy here at home.

Our weakest president in the past 50 years.

Very nice man who a big heart, but incapable of making a decision when a decision needed to be made.

Too many blunders to mention, but he weakened America by not being decisive.

Because of people over 40 memories of Carter it has made it tough on Obama, because older people who experienced Carter and the damage done by his inability to make important decisions has created a fear of whether Obama can make an important and difficult decision when the pressure is on.

As several posters correctly noted Jimmy Carter was a good guy who was just not up to the job. A relatively unknown ex-Georgia governor, he capitalized on the voters' backlash against Gerald Ford's pardon of Tricky Dick. He turned out to be weak and pathetic. Who could forget his bizarre "malaise" address on national TV? Until George W. Bush came along Jimmy would have been my nominee for worst U.S. president ever.

While he was a good Christian man,  he was the wrong man for the job.  Name me one good thing this man did while in office.  ONE?!  Thats kind of hard to do isn't it?  The Iran hostage situation, recession/high employment, making our nation appear weak as a Super Power around the world during the heart of the Cold War.   All in all he was just a big softie.  I hate to attack him but he was really bad.   He did re-build his repuation somewhat though with his Habitat for Humanity orinization, but his presidency will ALWAYS be remembered as a failure.  So, remember that all you current Bush haters, who try and say Bush was worse.  I don't think so.

If not for Hoover, Carter would easily be the worst President of the 20th century. He gave us high energy costs, high taxes, double digit interest rates, double-digit inflation, the near death of small business, lowest housing starts since before World War 2, a nearly decimated military, and humiliation on the world stage. 

UPDATE:  I have to confess...Jimmy Carter was the worst President of my lifetime- Bush has taken his title from him. A horrible leader, at least Carter's heart was in the right place. I also believed that, like Reagan, Carter truly cared for our troops, their lives, and their families. Contrast that with our current "President".

I SHOOK JIMMY CARTERs hand when i was young kid on his missippi river boat trip. I GUESS that is best thing i can say about em. He was an honest guy who struggled in his time as President. The economy and hostage crisis .....both failures kinda defined him. Still he didnt do anything overly foolish. His brother BILL added humor to get the country through it. HE WASNT A lawyer....THATS A GOOD THING. OVERALL on performance he was 2 stars. The ship didnt sink under his watch and his honesty was something the country could use more of.

Loved and adored by liberals (Rosie O'Donnell recently christened him as the most "pious" and "Christ-like" of all presidents), Carter was a disaster-and-a-half and its certaintly obvious why this person only had one term. It was during the Carter administration that gas prices (adjusted for inflation) were at their highest on average. Carter's miserable handling of the Iran-Hostage crisis was apparent when the very first day that Reagan was in office, the villianous Iranians (of which Mamhoud Ahemdenjiad was one of) let the innocent Americans go. Inflation and unemployment skyrocketed under Carter. Carter's still in the news today...with his recent declaration that the Bush administration was the "worst in history." His constant anti-Semetic positions on the middle east are obvious and like other famous liberals, he recieved a Nobel Peace Price thanks to Norway for dissenting on Iraq and denouncing its liberation.

Very poor President, from his handling of the hostage situation in Iran, to his criticism of Reagan's handling of the Cold War (which, by the way, worked pretty good I would say). Like some have already said, he is alot worse as a former President than he was as acting President. He paints a very bleak picture of our country, unlike a Reagan, who painted us as that bright shining city upon the hill.  If there ever was an argument against International Law becoming law in the USA, here he is!!!

Okay, its time for the historians to look back and judge the world. Carter fixed the economy that Ford/Nixon ruined, remember the 'Whip Inflation Now' buttons, and regan walks in the door and keeps Paul Volcker, good thing Carter hired him.    Carter started the funding of the afgan rebels, this caused the Russians to turn inwards and give up the cold war. Regan doesn’t take the opportunity with Gorbachev to save the western world, and now Africa, the Middle east and Asia are against us. After Brezhnev the reformers moved in, too bad the republicans didn’t notice or care.

Give a smart man like Carter some credit for working towards the public good, and not being the typical 'C-average' daddies college republican president.

My proof is the future, the economy is tanking under our current President, and next a Democrate will be elected and will work for six years to fix our problems, only for a 'reformed' republican in ten years to cry about morality and win in 2016.
just wait and see.

What an absolute unfortunate person to have ever made the rank of President. And this is not a personal attack. This is a man who has failed his country & now wants to become the Ghandi of our time by his extreme liberal agenda & America Bashing.
His efforts in Habitat for Humanity are somewhat noble although the organization needs to be revamped.
But Jimmy Carter has/is causing more problems for America than is due & will go down in history as "The Worst President" in ALL of the USA's history.

A small-town idealist who was completely out of his depth in the presidency, Carter failed to grasp the big picture and brought us years of runaway inflation and a laughable foreign policy. He is basically a good, although somewhat self-righteous, misguided and limited man.

Admired him at one time, but he is using his golden years to suck up to the worst element of the American political landscape. His loyalists on the left would be interested to learn of his race-baiting tactics to win the governorship of Georgia. Decent fellow, but like to many of his fellow Dems, a world class panderer.

Here was a man who was a decent enough chap.Unfortunately,his naivete and outright gullibility did a number on our nation.Does anyone remember the deal he made with Kim Il-jung?Well,Kim wanted money and reactors.In return,he promised us he would discontinue his nuclear program.Guess who brokered that deal?Carter.One would think that Carter would have at least put something in writing or checked on this lunatic periodically.Carter,having his thumb up his nose,just trusted this clown....so he convinced President Clinton to signoff on this deal.Of course,Kim,having gotten what he wanted out of us,had ZERO incentive to scrap his nukes.He built up his nukes.And this is all because Carter has an infantile trust of these dirtbags.Look,it gives me no pleasure to say this.I wish Carter was right.If he was right,the world would be a better place.But he IS NOT RIGHT!And becausehe is not right and because he trusted all these bozos,the world is a less safe place.I dread the thought of a President Carter before 9/11.

Many disliked him for the Iran Hostage Crisis and for a slow economy, but I still liked him both as a man and as a president. I truly believed he should've gotten a second term. He was truly compassionate and cared about Americans more than any president we had in a long time. He focused on human rigths as a tenet for American and foreign policy. He developed Habitat For Humanity to make more poor people get into homes. And for those who attacked him about a bad economy, it was bad mostly because Carter kept giving money to welfare and the poor. And he was one of the most honest presidents we ever had, if not the most honest. He never told a lie and never kept secrets from the press or the people. And he was truly a man of morals and truly believed in the values of America. He was very faithful and believed in the Lord's word without being hostile towards gays and abortion and other stuff that many people say are the meaning of moral values. You see, Jimmy Carter brought back the integrity, compassion, values and pride to the White House. The integrity, compassion, values and pride that had been lost for years and that we lack today. We need more presidents like Jimmy Carter.

Since failing to gain a second term of office President Carter has done many great things. As President he did not do much and the ill fated rescue if the Iran hostages signified his administration. The world is a much better place because of President Carter and I think the election of Ronald Regan is in part responsible for what he would later accomplish.

An outright socialist. I was watching a Discovery/Times special on the Venezuelan recall election. Hugo Chavez is a dangerous man. He is an outright Communist, and he's more than ready to go to war to spread his ideals. This man is more dangerous than George W. Bush in an armory. He has made plans to buy 50 modern Mig fighters and 100K small arms. Jimmy Carter actually showed up as a political observer to ensure a FAIR election, but right after his arrival, pretty much rubbed noses with Chavez the night before and had a grand time. Can you believe that? Hugo Chavez had a rally where everyone had red shirts, red flags, Hammer and Sickle flags waving about, even his bodyguard had a red beret, and our former president will go and openly associate and hang around this guy. Having heard about his military blunders in office, I'm sure Carter must either be confused or terribly leftist in his ideals. I have no care in the world for this man. A socialist in my opinion, is just as bad as a robber-baron capitalist. Chavez has made me far more scared and worried than Bush ever will. He's way more moderate than Chavez. Jimmy Carter should be ashamed the Navy chose to name a sub after him; he's not worthy of such an honor.

Perhaps the worst president in US history (other than Jackson), Carter enabled terrorism through his weak actions against terrorists. His domestic policy lacked any sort of vision. When he finally left the White House, America was at it's lowest point in history. Carter's awfulness cannot be overstated.
