Jimmy Carter and the Content of Mr. Obama's Policies

By Rick Pearcey • September 16, 2009, 08:14 AM

Matthew Vadum writes at American Spectator:

America's worst living ex-president, Jimmy Carter, says that Rep. Joe Wilson's (R-S.C.) overhyped-to-the-endth degree "you lie" outburst during the Dear Leader's recent address to Congress, was "based on racism."

My sense is that, unfortunately for Mr. Carter, very few open-minded free-thinking Americans regard his utterances with any kind of weight.

Also, I am aware of no evidence to back up his accusation that an "overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man."

I am aware that Mr. Obama was elected president by the people of this nation whom Mr. Carter now accuses.

I am also aware that it may be possible that opposition to Mr. Obama's policies may have something to do with the un-Constitutional content of those policies and not with the color of his skin.

The possibility of a non-race-based approach to people and ideas may offend members of the KKK and others. Alas.

We respect our elders, and Mr. Carter appears to hold his view with sincerity. But even if sincere, Mr. Carter is sadly and predictably wrong. 

It is unfortunate to see a grown man publicly embarrass himself in this way.

When I saw his comments on TV I have to say that my high respect for his character was majorly damaged. He may have good intentions, but his insights on this point were no where near good.
