What was Carter's approval rating when he got the boot?

If you're that old, it's pretty unlikely you'd be backing Obama anyway.
For God's sake, he was President from 1977 to 1981. You make it sound like 1877 to 1881! Your Alzheimer's has kicked in a little early...

Jay is an unbelievable fucknut.

Take 12 years off of 1981 and what do you get - 1969. That's the earliest year someone could have been born and have any meaningful recollection of Carter and his policies without being a history major. That makes you 39 years old, give or take. Myself, I was a whopping 8 when I told mom & pop that Reagan would win the election, but I've always been mature for my age.

12 from his election year of 1977, and you get 1965 - you're now 43.

RealClearPolitics - Articles - Today's Median Age Voters Grew Up in a Different America
The median age of voters in the 2008 presidential election will be about 44, according to figures derived from Census Bureau findings. That means the electoral sweet spot in the campaign is voters born in 1964, the year Nikita Khrushchev disappeared from sight in the Soviet Union, three civil rights workers were murdered in Mississippi, and Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer's "The Days of Wine and Roses" was the record of the year. (Soon, of course, the average voter won't know what a record was, besides the one established by Barry Bonds.)

These Goldwater babies -- born the year the Arizona conservative won the Republican presidential nomination -- are a breed apart from the voters who occupied center stage in elections past. Research suggests that young people become aware of political figures, principally the president, around age 9; that means these voters' earliest presidential memories are of Richard M. Nixon. They developed the beginnings of real political awareness around 13, which was the beginning of the Jimmy Carter years.

Tell us, o master of all things civic, how much can a President do on his own? I realize that 20 years of 41, Clinton, and 43 have caused many people to believe a President can actually *do* all the things he promises unilaterally, but you really must remember the role of Congress in making any of your darkest fears come true.

Obama will probably be the President; cope with it. Vote smart(er) in your congressional elections, and abate your fears.

Show me a 13 yo with political awareness, and I'll show you a freak of nature, unless we're just talking about the very basics (and nothing about real policy on any but the most local level). Face it, even most twenty-somethings find nothing more boring than politics.
