Ironically the right wing is still trying to spin that quote against the left wing. I am sorry right wing why is it everytime you guys end up ruining a country liberals have to come in and fix it? Right now Socialists are reforming Greece after a right wing government ran its course. Denmark, Norway and Sweden all socialists, all doing pretty good economically.
Want another great socialist idea, the 8 hour work day. No something I don't hear very frequently, "Damn those socialists for giving us the 8 hour work day".
"Case in point - Americans naively voted in an unknown liberal named Jimmy Carter. He ruined the economy and made us unsafe in the world. Now Americans have done the same thing 35 years later. You all learned nothing."
Yes Jimmy Carter ruined the economy when the American economy starting falling 15 years before Jimmy Carter was elected. To top it off Jimmy Carter got the economy to reverse its cycle. Ronald Reagan that guy who raised taxes 6 times under his term. Sorry conservatives but the facts never match your rhetoric.
Also by conservative standards now, Ronald Reagan would be a liberal. The GOP's Ronald Reagan purity test, Ronald Reagan would have failed it.
