Be afraid. Be VERY afraid! Of Ebola. Of ISIS. Of immigrants threatening to bring both threats across a porous border that can't be protected by a president who can't even protect his own house. Be afraid! Vote Republican.

Republicans will claim victory for Romney. Democrats will claim victory for Obama. It will be tantamount to an NFL game with a tie score after one overtime period. It goes down in the books as a tie. The Romney versus Obama debate will be the same.

Presently, it's Mitt Romney's turn. After a trouncing in headlines such as the New York Daily News' "Mitt Hits the Fan," over his tacit dismissal of 47 percent of the electorate as freeloaders, he's making the damage control rounds.

His hard-hitting approach to investigative journalism and take-no-prisoners interviewing style helped define the program in its early years. And Mike conducted his interviews, legends, movie stars and crooks, with the same intensity. He would say, "I'm just nosy."

Readers of White House Diary, no doubt, will reassess his administration. But many of them may well conclude, as I have, that Carter does not make a compelling case that he was an effective president.
