    a lot of problems. The military had not recovered from the Vietnam era, the oil embargo, the hostage crisis, and many of our industries were quickly falling behind - the auto industry was a joke and steel was also failing. No one liked what Carter told them - basically - we have to suck it up. He made mistakes, but if we had followed his energy policies we would not be facing the problems we are (or at least they wouldn't be as severe) - global warming and or dependence on fossil fuels.
