Jimmy Carter, Still a Twit

I’m sure you’ve all heard Jimmy Carter’s recent interview where he called “an overwhelming majority” of those who oppose the president are doing so out of racism.

I suppose an overwhelming majority of those who opposed W were racists, too?

Jimmy Carter was one of the most inept presidents in our country’s history, and his policies nearly sunk us into depression in the late 70’s and early 80’s. He was SO inept that not only did he only serve one term – a difficult thing for any president – but most Democrats don’t even want to claim him as one of theirs.

I speak with Democrats every day, and most of them would say Carter was a bumbling idiot.

Carter’s race-baiting commentary just proves once again what a twit he is. I agree with what Michael Steele (the president of the RNC, who is 100% black, unlike Obama who is only half black), who said that it was just a flat out lie, and that the Democrats are obviously trying to discredit anyone who disagrees with their policies.

The people at the tea parties are not racists, they are anti-big-government. I am, too!

And if you’re a real American, so are you.

    Speaking of racism… didn’t 94% of the black population vote for Obama? I’m pretty sure McCain didn’t get that much of the white vote because if he had we’d have heard about it on the news. If that’s not racism I don’t know what is.
    Sounds like Mr. Carter needs to consider that people actually don’t like Obama’s already-been-tried-in-the-past-and-failed-miserably policies. After all, Carter was the failure who tried most of them.

    Something I’ve noticed is how people who lack a proper argument (or counter-argument) resort to name-calling very quickly.

    This is a prime example of it: Jimmy Carter, a former POTUS no less, accusing anyone politically opposed to Obama to be motivated by racism.

    Carter gave no real explanation for his outlandish comment, not did he present a sound argument for lumping all Americans who oppose Obama into the ugly category of Racists. Are some those opposed actually racist? Maybe. And at the same time a large number of those opposed probably do so for very good reason, not simply because of Obama’s skin color.

    Carter, like other Democrats I’ve seen and heard, are quick to play the Victim card when things are going their way. Obama can’t pass all the legislation he wants? AHA! His opposition are all racists! Obama getting too much heat for something he did wrong? Racists! Obama’s popularity dropping like a rock? RACISTS!!

    *Ahem*

    It’s easy to see what’s happening here. Obama has no real sound argument for the current shoddy Health Care Reform bills in Congress right now (all lumped under the label “Obamacare”) and the people know it. Obama needs a lil’ extra help getting it done. Carter enters the fray and decides the quickest, best way to help Obama is to scare non-supporters into supporting him with the threat of being labeled a racist. After all, who wants to be publicly known as a racist? He cleverly accuses critics but does so indirectly (“motivated by racism” instead of “they’re racists”). All of this just because Obama is having tough time ramming poorly designed health care reform legislation down every American’s throat.

    How shameful all of this is. If the current president is having so much trouble getting things done, then perhaps he and his administration need to take a step back and rethink what they’re doing. Dropping the “R” word is low for anyone to do. This isn’t the playground at school where name-calling has free reign. This is the Office of the President of the United States and it’s supposed to be above things like this.

    For the record: I proudly voted for Obama last year. Furthermore, I’m also against the following of his: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (“stimulus” bill), Cap and Trade and the current popular proposed health care reform bills. Does that mean I’m a racist? No. It means I’m an informed citizen who is rightly opposed to destructive legislation being pushed through by the current administration. It’s called dissent, not racism, and it’s as much a part of the American process as voting and as American as apple pie and baseball.

    Time to leave the playground, Carter, and put big-boy pants on for once.

    I just found an article that better explains my thoughts and feelings on the matter.

    “Sorry, Democrats, racism isn’t everywhere”
