Kicking An 82 Year Old Man: The Right Attacks Jimmy Carter. Again
by Dave Johnson | Dec 5 2006

[Co-written with James Boyce, originally at Huffington Post]

Jimmy Carter is not remembered as a great President. Most folks might even consider him a failure, the peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia. But why exactly do we hold one of the two Democratic Presidents of the last 38 years in such low esteem?

Isn't this the man that held the country together in the years after Watergate? Didn't he bring decency and honesty back to The White House?

Yes.

Isn't it a great American success story for a man to come from such humble beginnings, serve in defense of his country and then ascend to the highest office?

Yes.


Isn't it remarkable that back in 1979 he declared "The energy crisis is real. It is worldwide. It is a clear and present danger to our Nation. These are facts and we simply must face them." Isn't that leadership and vision?

Jimmy Carter will be remember as a great man. He is still envolved with helping people. I would love to meet him.

Wow! Great article, Catherine.

Jimmy Carter was the most Christian of our Presidents--true Christian, not the lip service type we have now.

If you go to the site Catherine posted, read the comments too. At least there are people there who are not attacking Carter--I hate that so many people on the left are doing that to him.

Makes me skeptical about how well the Dems are going to do now that thay are in office. I hate that!

Uhhhhhhhh...

I'm not a fan...

Back in 1975 0r 76, when Jimmy Carter was running for President, he declared that he had no big money ties and yet... he was a Charter Member of the TriLateral Commission, formed in 1973 by Nelson Rockefeller... and when the country believed him and he was elected president over the man that pardoned Nixon, he filled his cabinet with members from that same commission...

No Big Money Ties... yeah right... he was a liar...

I'm NOT a fan...

Off topic Question: How many times has a member of the TLC been elected President or Vice President since it's creation in 1973?

Every time... :shock:

pretty good trick for them to pick the winning candidates each time, huh?

Nooooo.... not really... considering the fact that they have had their members on ALL the presidential tickets... makes it pretty damn easy for their "man" to win that way...
