President Ford Considered Jimmy Carter a Disaster

In 25 years of interviews with his hometown paper that could only be released upon his death, former President Ford once called Jimmy Carter a “disaster” who ranked alongside Warren Harding.  In 1981, Ford said: “I think Jimmy Carter would be very close to Warren G. Harding. I feel very strongly that Jimmy Carter was a disaster, particularly domestically and economically. I have said more than once that he was certainly the poorest president in my lifetime.”
