1980 US Boycott

In 1980, President Carter refused to let American athletes compete in the Moscow Olympics, because the Russians had invaded Afghanistan. (Carter believed in collective punishment of Americans.)

The Russians gave up on Afghanistan ten years later and withdrew.

In 2001, the US invaded Afghanistan. Twelve years later we are still in Afghanistan, which Obama calls “the right war.”

    At least Carter actually attempted a rescue.

    • Andy DC says:

      Rescue was scuttled due to a sandstorm that was not forecast. Needless to say, the brass at the NWS was not pleased.

    That sign is 10 years old

  4. Come to think of it, every President since I began voting for presidents (in 1972) has been the worst ever. Not the worst possible, just the worst we ever had. (And yes, I include Reagan in that lineup.) The country has been going downhill all my adult life.
