Carter Supports Obama?

Former President Jimmy Carter - the man who had "committed adultrey in his heart" and was once attacked by a giant rabbit - stops short of endorsing Barack Obama for President. In this piece Jimmah also suggests that he had to take fellow Former President Bill Clinton to the woodshed for his and Hillary's racist antics in South Carolina.

Jimmah and his wife Roslyn have made it a practice not endorse primary candidates but the toothy ex-leader, now 83 years old, did let it slip that all but one of his eleven children and grandchildren have endorsed the Illinois Senator.

Carter was the biggest foreign policy disaster in recent American history.

Supporting dictators in Romania, the Former Yugoslavia/Tito, just because they allegedly sided with him against Russia... the disastrous grain embargo and banning US Olympic athletes from Moscow (THAT showed 'em)... the disaster with the Iranian hostages...

Yes, internationally naive Obama would seem to be his first choice.

And like Obama, Carter would have been more suited to being a revival preacher and inspirational speaker, without any clue about details of how he'd accomplish any of it.

Unbelievable. You know, I was diehard Clinton for 8 years and before Hillary announced running, I was already praying she would. Just to get good ole Bill back in the House. However, in the past month, I would vote republican before I voted for Hillary or Bill!! You can say media has turned words of Bills but fact he did say Obama was playing the race card, as many of you indicate on this board. Unbelievable, what do you think Bill did for 8 years! He courted minorities BIG TIME! If a African American endorses Obama, it has to be about race, it can’t be, we think he is the best candidate or he is qualified and experienced. Yet, a woman can endorse Mrs. Clinton and even say it is because she is a woman and that is okay. Double talk people. Quit following the media and do your research. Waters( National Black Caucus) endorsed Clinton–did you do the research to find out the William B Clinton Foundation was a contributor to their last fundraiser. Timing, awfully funny. Go to the William Clinton Foundation website and see the companies that have partnered with them–that is back door buying of endorsements. The Clintons would not get my vote at this point because 1) why yell foul when you THINK people are playing the race card–yet when you did it–it was okay, 2)The both of them were in the White House for 8 years, why didn’t they get this stuff done then. Bin Laudin was planting his people in the US and training them while we American’s were short sighted and consumed with who was going down on the President and what truly classifies the term sex–have we forgotten, 3) she says experience, what experience–as First Lady, she didn’t do anything but damage control of Monica and Bills mess. You mean New York or Watergate–have we forgotten that scandal that was swept under the table. If African Americans were stepping up to vote just because of race then we would have had one in long ago, have you forgotten Jesse Jackson , he was excellent speaker, Al Sharpton (he is advocated for Minorities for decades and decades), one of their challenges were getting the minority votes in. Could it be so many are backing this one because we are tired of the traditional politics with lies, deception, deceat—we won’t new eyes, fresh perspectives, CHANGE, HE COULD BE GREEN, bring about change, peace, unity, a better economy, better health care–(if Hill can do it now–why didn’t she have it done–8 years ago). We seek character, man of his word. It would be easy to say, you Clinton supporters only support her because she is female, but maybe you want to hold on to what you think is secure because you have been there “done that”, you may not like change. I understand but understand this, I AM 50% WHITE, 50% BLACK (IRISH AND AFRICAN AMERICAN) AND I am running to change, grasping for change, inhaling change, I am not running to Obama, but I am joining with him to say lets do this, not because he is African American BUT because he represents all, not just women and children but the elderly, men, families, people without titles, without categories, plain and simple people. Be informed and if after you research and now what each candidate represents then you choose who represents what is important to you but for me and my African American family we will walk with the rest of the Americans that support change and honesty!!!

Yup BILLARY really screwed up bigtime with their racists remarks. They tried back peddling but it was too late. They have really shown how racist they are towards miniorities yet Antonio is trying to get Hillary the Latino vote. Sorry, there's a lot of Latinos who were Clinton fans that have now turned to Obama in just the last month. They will tell you after hearing and reading the crap the Clintons have been sprewing it would have been a huge mistake to support those Clintons.

Okay, Rambling Annie:

For a start, just google Al Sharpton whom you keep mentioning, and you'll see that in fact, he refused to endorse Obama until he "improved" his attitude about speaking out on issues that favored blacks. Sharpton chewed him out for not supporting "a sister" in the Chicago race against Daly -- because Obama did what you said he should, vote on the person he most agreed with, regardless of color.

Sharpton has been working on Obama, and says he's made "progress" in voting for things that "matter to our people," like affirmative action, solidarity with candidates, etc. Check out VIBE the black site as well as mainstream Politico, etc. Lots of stuff in the local Chicago papers about this.

To the point where people accused Sharpon of just being jealous of Obama, but he insists that no, he and Jesse Jackson have just had to teach him the "right" way to behave as a black candidate.

School is out.

I've switched to lend my support to Obama too.

white people are not to be trusted.

ask any indian.

Zuma and mayor sam constantly delete posts in order to improve their own self interest and 'image'.

Like it did you guys any real good, anyway.

plz don't delete anything on my behalf. I don't need your manipulated 'image' to feel good about myself.
and I am a freedom fighter, and I will fight for it.

you forget I came from somewhere that these rights don't exist, so I for one appreciate them, utilize them, and again, will fight for them.

Who gives a rat's ass what Jimmy Carter says?

3:08 is right--Carter was a complete disaster as president.

After he left office, he cuddled up to dictators in Haiti and Nicaragua.

Then he wrote a book blaming Israel for the terrorism it suffered at the hands of Palestinian suicide bombers.

Hey Jimma: GO THE FUCK AWAY!!!!
