Please don't write Romney off. We are the country that elected Bush Jr twice after all.
And if we re-elect Obama that will make re-electing bush look like a stroke of genius. This guy makes Carter look smart.
Why the hate for Carter so much? Jimmy Carter is a intelligent man who is the one out of three presidents that has (or had) a degree in the natural sciences (nuclear engineering) the others being Herbert Hoover and James Garfield.
You're not helping yourself. If you didn't notice, Hoover wasn't all that great of a president, nor was Garfield really that fantastic either.
In all fairness, Garfield only got to be president 200 days because a dude shot him.
James Garfield, I find would have done well if he lived to serve his term, though that is a what-if, since we really don't know. I can only base this on what he did before.
After Andrew Johnson left office. Rutherford B. Hayes blocked any attempts to further Reconstruction. James Garfield felt that the south was failing in every way of allowing African-Americans the right to suffrage to blocking them into office. Another issue was the establishment of universal education for all citizens. Hiram College is were he studied and became a professor and president of the college. He taught mainly classes in Latin, Greek, mathematics, history, philosophy, rhetoric and English literature.
He was also general during the American Civil War too, but voting for somebody whose been in the military isn't something I really care for in a president. Since history shows they tend to be sub-average to really bad.
