A presidential son explores venture into national politics (discharged from Navy - Pot and LSD)
Boston Globe ^ | October 23, 2005 | Steve Friess

Posted on 10/23/2005 2:19:45 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

....The presidential son, who moved to Las Vegas in 2003 and campaigned for John F. Kerry last year, said he's about to embark on a ''listening tour" of Nevada to find out ''if my fellow citizens feel the same way about me as I feel about them."

Carter, an equities investor who lives with his wife in fast-growing northwest Las Vegas, said he's been contemplating a bid against Ensign for a while. ...

....Ensign spokesman Jack Finn said the senator doesn't know much about Carter and couldn't comment on a possible opponent. Ensign told a local journalist that he didn't know that President Carter had any sons. His three adult sons largely stayed out of the spotlight during his term, leaving their pigtailed little sister, Amy, as Jimmy and Rosalyn's most famous child.

Still, the possible bid by a candidate with a famous last name has generated enthusiasm among Nevada Democrats -- as well as some relief in a party struggling to find a viable prospect to take on Ensign. ...

...''When you think of Jimmy Carter to this day, you still think of long gas lines and the guy who was in office before the great Reagan revolution. The Jimmy Carter legacy is really lost here."

....Jack Carter insists that he hasn't made up his mind about running and declined to catalog his stances on a list of issues until he formally announces within the next few months. Still, he has already drawn media attention. Last week the Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Carter confirmed that he was discharged from the Navy in 1970 after one tour of duty in Vietnam because he admitted using marijuana and LSD....

Elizabeth and Jack Carter prepare to leave the Elko County Library late Saturday morning after meeting with the Elko County Democratric Central Committee. Jack Carter is considering challenging Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., in 2006, and he made Elko is first unofficial campaign stop. (Adella Harding/Elko Daily Free Press)

The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer by Jimmy Carter, Amy Carter (Illustrator)

***....Amy Carter did not receive the same "media hands-off" treatment that the Clintons insisted upon for their daughter, Chelsea. The fact that Amy went to public school, her views on nuclear disarmament, and the time she was seen to be reading a book at the table during a state dinner were all subjects of media stories. (Some furor attended the "reading at the table" incident, which some saw as an affront to foreign guests.)

The Carters left the White House after one term. Six years after that, in 1987, Ms. Carter went to Brown University, where she again stepped into the media limelight. This time it was for her arrest during student protests against United States policies in South Africa (then under apartheid) and Central America. The charges against her were later dropped.

Carter went on to pursue a master's degree in art history at Tulane University in New Orleans. There she met James Wentzel, a computer consultant, whom she married in 1996.....****Source

***Jimmy Carter's Son Refused Visa to Iran - (Feb 1999) TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran has refused a visa to the son of former President Jimmy Carter, who broke diplomatic ties with Iran in 1979, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported today.

The agency quoted an unnamed source as saying that James E. "Chip" Carter III, who was to lead a group of Americans to Iran in May, was refused a visa because of his "past record." It did not elaborate.

About 25 former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Iran in the 1960s and 1970s were expected to participate in the trip to Iran. The news agency did not say whether they had been granted visas.

The younger Carter was quoted by an Iranian newspaper, Sobh-e Emrouz, as saying that the delegation does not represent the government and has a "tourist agenda."

He is vice president of the International Development with The Friendship Force, a nonprofit group based in Atlanta. He was not immediately available for comment.

President Carter was in office when the Islamic Revolution ousted the U.S.-backed shah's government in Iran and took power in 1979.

In November that year, Iranian militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 52 Americans hostage. The event led to the severing of diplomatic ties between the two countries. Source

Yes! We need more sons, brothers, nephews, nieces, daughters, sisters of former office holders to run for political office. I can't get enough of the Kennedy Clan. Or the Browns of CA. Or Hutchisons. Or Bushs. Or the Sanchez sisters. Or Tafts. Or Daleys. Or Inzunzas of San Diego County. To name just a few.

*Enough* already! How about some fresh bloodlines for a change?

LOL... Speaking of Jimmah, I've got a pic of Jimmah that a FReeper put up that reads: Irrelevance: You'll never be as important to the world as you are to your peanuts.

Too bad I'm too young for the Carter/Reagan years.

"The fact that Amy went to public school"

Yet one more lie. Carter SAID that he would send Amy to D.C. Public Schools, but after giving that disaster area a close look, quite wisely sent her to Sidwell Friends.

Well this means he's got the rat primary wrapped up. Now we know what his "listening tour" will be like : he must be still hearing voices.

I remember Jack Carter....He was a comedian on the old Ed Sullivan Show.

I wondered what happened to him.

Still a comedian, I see.

I agree. It's the equivalent of political "over-breeding". :)

The Carters of Georgia are a family of dynamic-looking he-men......and dramatically-gorgeous women.

I'd love to see the photo in # 1 of that strikingly, vividly-handsome couple, Jack and Elizabeth Carter, juxtaposed with that famous photo of the pale, young Hill/Bills looking like zombie Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls.

So many of these celebrated liberals and their mixed-up offspring have a particular bloodless look as if vampires were at their necks every night.

This is my yearly pre-Halloween horror story, and I'm sticking to it.

there is a book out called The real Jimmy Carter... How he shaped the road for politicians like the Clintoons.

Have it, haven't had time to read it.

to find out if my fellow citizens feel the same way about me as I feel about them

Is this something like, "Well, that's enough talk about me ... let's talk about what you think of me."?

Isn't amazing when we read about new faces or old faces recycled like this Son of Carter, a simple check often shows their approval and financing by $oreA$$.

LOL! HA! HA!...Just like sHrILLARY "THE RED *!TCH" Klintoon, hearing voices (like Eleanor Roosevelt) drawing her/them back to "the Scene of their Crime(s)", the Oval Office.

*moaning (like Moania :)*...Come Back...Come Back, the Nation Needs/Demands You...Can't You Hear Us." ...real creepy. :P

That was a lot of populist hoorah.

Clinton did the same thing when he paraded through the D.C. slums with Hillary proclaiming how he was going to take care of the poor and downtrodden. All B.S., all of the time.

George $oreA$$ is a totally dangerous individual. He has billions to spend make this country weaker and a cesspool of perversion.

It is amazing to do an internet search on these grand sounding names when they come with what sounds like $oro$ bs. He must be financing about 100 of these phoney non profits which hate America, Americans, our military and Christians. He hates Israel and the real Jews as much if not more than us.
