Poor Jimmy Carter doesn't he realize that Americans seldom like to hear the truth?
Jimmy Carter has been a much better citizen than he was ever a President. As President, Carter was a man that seemed uneasy with the ways of Washington, D.C. and the intricacies of politics on a National level. At times, especially during the events of The Iran Hostage Crisis, he seemed ineffective and weak. He waffled on policy and was even challenged by a member of his own party during his re-election campaign (Ted Kennedy Rest In Peace)! But after he was beaten in his re-election bid for President by the worst President in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, Carter seemed a change man. He became an advocate for poor people's rights, built homes for them and spoke out for Democracy all over the world. Now he says something that has sparked controversy: HIs opinion that much of the criticism reflected towards President Obama is racially motivated. What's funny is that Carter doesn't still get how to play the political game. Poor Jimmy, he will never be accepted in the old boys network. But if he continues to keep it real with me then he can be accepted in my middle aged boys network.
