#1 If you look at Carters background and education you will find him to be one of this countries brightest individuals. He came to DC as a Christian. Strike number one. He was honest. Strike number two. He was not a party animal. In DC that is strike number three. He had the real power to deal with and that was Tip O'Neill.Big and final strike number four. Yes, he made mistakes but in DC with the powers against you including the Post you can be smothered. He had a tendency to try to do everything himself so that always made him the easiest target. Even now watch the attacks for these comments he has made. He is no Joe Biden.

#2 It's always good to have someone worse than you when you are a former president.

#3 Under Carter the US had a miserable economy, sky high inflation, and a stagnant stock market. Under Carter the US was weak with hostages being held in Iran and the Russians invading Afghanistan. He was a micro-manager, wasting his time personally scheduling use of the White House tennis courts while bungling the hostage crisis. Most ex-Presidents have enough appreciation for the travails that go with the job that they avoid cheap shots at their successors -- note the behavior of Bush and Clinton. Not Carter, who is a thoroughly classless act. Carter (winner of the Nobel "Peace" Prize for not being Bush - a special recent category) is most beloved internationally for being a bagman, giving payoffs to dictators in Haiti and North Korea alike. These payments came out of the pockets of American taxpayers and didn't cost Carter a dime. He also likes to engage in personal diplomacy for which I'll give him the Dennis Rodman International Citizen Award. He is a prime example of the fact that intelligence doesn't guarantee good judgment.

#4 I was going to post the Parade article this one refers to yesterday, but failed.

What was your reaction to your grandson James Carter IV uncovering the hidden camera video of Mitt Romney making his infamous comments about the 47 percent?

JC: I think it was the turning point [in the election]. About six months later, President Obama came to Atlanta, and another grandson, Jason, a state senator, took James over to meet the president, and Obama thanked him profusely. I was very proud.

Carter: Still screwing up the country with his offspring.

#6 Carter's just pissed that Obama has taken the 'Worst President' title from him.

#7  We recovered from Carter. Can we recover from Obama?

IMO: if you'd recovered from Carter, there would be no Obama (Barry Dunham would spend his life as ambulance chasing lawyer).

#8 We recovered from Carter. Can we recover from Obama?

No. The rot is too deep and to institutionalized at this point. It needs cut out or cut off for the healthier parts of the nation can grow again.

#9 What's that saying about a stopped clock? And I always thought Carter was wrong about everything.

#11 Proud to say my family sued the hell out of his peanut seed company and won. Bad seed is bad.

I shall take a lap around the 'burg in my borrowed Triumph.

#12 "Under Carter the US had a miserable economy" yes he gets all the blame. I worked in DC and he was hated. The Peanut farmer they called him. I blame the same people we see now causing all the trouble in the House and Senate. People like Gore and the media. Obama is trying to avoid blame at every opportunity. Carter ran form nothing. He did what he felt was right. He made many mistakes but not all of them.

He did not whine about things being someone else's fault--he accepted the consequences of his actions. Even Nixon, at some point, accepted that his mistakes were of his own doing.
