Reading some of the comments on the article, you'd think he was. There really is no hate like Republican hate.

The best former president this country's ever had.

Damn socialists giving away free houses. How are the people in Haiti supposed to live the American Dream when socialists like Jimmy Carter keep trampling on their freedom to be homeless?
 
2012-11-26 02:30:01 PM  
Well to be accurate, he faded to the background while he was still in office.
 
2012-11-26 02:35:54 PM  
Because Carter, you see, he's different from Reagan and Bush all those other Rethuglican bastards who lay down with dictators and tyrants. He's been all about the human rights.

They're just upset that he was the last practicing Christian to sit in the Oval Office.

I think you'e trying to be sarcastic but it's always hard to tell here. How many wars did Carter get us into? How many terrorist organizations did he make deals with? I suppose you'll bring up the Panama Canal.

Well I think the guy he's meeting with in the middle there is Mr. Big/Kananga from Live and Let Die. So it follows that he made deals with SPECTRE. And now we know what Carter is really doing in Haiti.
 
2012-11-26 03:18:30 PM  
After that administration no one would pay Jimmy Carter to give a speech. He could only fail upwards.

Carter is the evil demon that gets ceremoniusly evicerated on the 3rd night of the Festival of the Feast of Saint Reagan; the popular Republican holiday which commemorates the ascention of their patron saint and the Great Awakening of the Moral MajorityTM.

I think there was a quiz about this earlier.
 
2012-11-26 03:22:27 PM  
Republicans absolutely hate the fact that Carter actually was (and is) all of the things that the duplicitous, sociopathic douchebags like GWB pretend to be....

Moral, intelligent, religiously devout, diligent, honest and committed to genuine American values.

That is why they attack him whenever and however possible, decades after his term has ended.

I love,love,love that Jimmy Carter's grandson was responsible for getting the "47%" thing into the public eye. I love that he did it for his grandfather.I love that he did it because douche nozzle republicans ran their mouths.

fark with Jimmy Carter...ANY... Jimmy Carter and you get destroyed.
 
2012-11-26 03:26:22 PM  
And to think American voters thought Jimmy Carter was the worst thing ever because he told people to wear a sweater when it's cold and depend less on foreign oil, and they favored a failed actor and anti-Medicare shill who used his running mate's influence and connections in the CIA to negotiate with terrorists to release hostages only upon the condition of his election, and as a result the deficit went to astronomical amounts (but it didn't matter until a big gubmint taxnspend Democrat was president) and several special individuals we'd learn about decades later were provided weapons.

Reeeeal good judgment you had there, Boomers.

2012-11-26 03:31:19 PM  
It reminds me of the King of the Hill episode where Bobby mistakes Jimmy Carter for Jesus Christ because he worked as a carpenter, helped the poor, resolved disputes, and had JC stitched on the bib of his overalls.

That is because he does not pray to Republican Jesus, he prays to the less judgmental version who loves all people.

The carter doctrine is about protecting our oil interests in the middle east as a response to the invasion of Afghanistan by the Russians.

This enabler just adds to our porblem of the mooching 47%ers.

Clinton hasn't exactly been a slouch. Pappy Bush is the only one that really retired. The others had the good decency to die off
 
2012-11-26 03:40:01 PM  
Carter was a good man while President. And I think that's why he is so reviled and considered so poor a President. He was too good, too honest, and too damn genuine to hold the office. He didn't know how to play the proverbial "game of thrones," or at least didn't like to.

In a time of unprecedented upheaval in the Middle East, he negotiated the only real lasting peace between Israel and a waring neighboring nation. In a time where most politicians would have blown smoke up the American people's ass in regards to gas prices and the energy crisis, he told them the truth and that sacrifice was needed.

Of course, we as a people didn't want to be told that. We didn't want to be told to drive more efficient cars or lower the health and put on a sweater. No, we wanted to be told that we were awesome, that nothing was our fault, and that our exceptionalism makes us better than the rules that govern everyone else.

And thus, we got Ronald f**king Reagan. He made deals with terrorist, both present and future, lied to our faces to make us feel all fuzzy inside, and cemented the cult of trickle down economics. Meanwhile, Carter wiped out diseases killing half the third world, built homes for the homeless, fed the hungry, and basically made a case against my atheism to make me want to nominate him for sainthood.

Carter. The man too good to be President.

Fine, all the people who voted for Reagan, regardless of their age, are deserving of ridicule. Look at them, America. Look at them and laugh.

"Lower the health" was supposed to be "lower the heat." I swear, half my posts anymore are correcting auto correct mistakes.

I said this in another thread, but I think it rings very true. We've had great men who were great Presidents, great men who were shiatty Presidents, shiatty men who were great Presidents, and shiatty men who were shiatty Presidents.

Jimmy Carter is a great man who wasn't a very good President. As an ex-President, he's an example for which all subsequent Presidents should hold themselves.
 
2012-11-26 03:44:41 PM  
Nothing compared to his work "Piece not apartheid".

The difference is pretty clear, while him and Clinton are pretty much running the show in many cases and are quite active, Bushes are hiding in bushes.

Headso: The carter doctrine is about protecting our oil interests in the middle east as a response to the invasion of Afghanistan by the Russians.


One could say that all of our interests in the Mid East is about oil (they'd be wrong) but what is your point? How is that any different from any other President, other than there weren't any terror attacks on his watch, he didn't trade arms with terrorists and he didn't start any illegal wars?

I disagree, and think he was a good President. He told the truth, something we all say we want in a politician. We threw a fit like children told we couldn't have a cookie, and voted for someone else. And like I said, he negotiated the only peace with Israel and a warring neighbor that lasts to this day. No one else has pulled that off.

He was a good President. He wasn't a good politician. He put his duty to his country above his poll numbers, and he paid for it because our nation are a bunch of naive, whiny children sometimes.

I met him after a speech at Lamar University. I asked him, "Do you think it was fair of Reagan to use the 'are you better off now than 4 years ago' thing?" He said, and I'm paraphrasing, "It doesn't matter if it was fair or not, what matters is how we react to things we think are unfair. I think it's unfair that so many Americans are homeless, and that's why I'm doing Habitat for Humanity."
