Just in time for President Carter’s address at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., the RNC is out with a great new video. And it is beautiful.
Twitter users love it. Fight like girls, baby.

Indeed! Rep. Paul Ryan is playing offense as well. Today, he made the Carter connection.
Paul Ryan in Ohio: "If we fired Jimmy Carter then, why would we re-hire Barack Obama now?"

"The Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are,'' Paul Ryan said. http://t.co/1awejucO

Hey, President Obama himself invites the comparison.
I don't think it's "fair" to say Republicans are tying Obama to Carter. Obama did give Carter a spot at #DNC2012 Sounds Like Obama likes him

Who actually wants to go back to the past? Obama is dragging Carter and Clinton out of mothballs and literally repeating 2008 bromides.

Obama, nothing says "forward" n new ideas like Jimmy Carter n Bill Clinton! Bwaaaaa haa haaa! #DNC

Bingo. But, it’s not just because Jimmy Carter is apparently one of his best buds. It’s because they are both failures as presidents.
