Jimmy Carter: Obama Critics Are Racist

They say there's no fool like an old fool. And Jimmy is a prime example of that time tested adage. The former President and ardent defamer of Israel reiterated his claim that critics of President Barack Obama are motivated by racism.

Speaking to student at Emory University Carter said, When a radical fringe element of demonstrators and others begin to attack the president of the United States as an animal or as a reincarnation of Adolf Hitler or when they wave signs in the air that said we should have buried Obama with Kennedy, those kinds of things are beyond the bounds. I think people who are guilty of that kind of personal attack against Obama have been influenced to a major degree by a belief that he should not be president because he happens to be African American.

That's it! It must be skin color! It can't possibly be because people Carter frames as fringe elements are angry about issues. No, it's because they're racist! Those are funny words coming from Carter who freely criticized former President Bush when he was just six months into his presidency. I have been disappointed in almost everything he has done said Carter who later said George W. Bush's Presidency, has been the worst in history. Carter never once came to the defense of President Bush while he endured the most vile and contemptible insults from the lowest and most despicible elements of society. I guess character attacks on Bush were ok in Carter's book.

What a disappointment Jimmy C. was after his election in 1976. The country was still hung over from the Watergate and plumbers scandals of the Nixon era. We just elected a President who billed himself to be an evangelical Christian and promissed a new era of hope in Washington politics. He was the Obama of his time. In return for our trust Carter gave us the benefit of his foolish, weak and naive policies. Those policies paid off in big dividends of inflation, unemployment, gasoline rationing and Soviet aggression in Africa, the Carribean and Afghanistan. Carter was doing a whole lot better when he was swinging a hammer and bending nails for Habitat for Humanity. He was a far better carpenter than he was a head of state.
