A friend of the family was an Olympic swimmer who was due to travel to the games. Thanks to all of the Carter voters, he did not get his chance in life.
Politicians should be held accountable, as we are. Carter, what an ass.
Didn’t you read the article? Even if your friend had gone, he’d have been cheated out of any medal he might have won.
Sometimes, the only way to win is not to play. Carter was an ass then and he’s an ass now, but boycotting the Olympics was the right thing to do. I just wish he’d done more (and less, but that’s probably one wish too far).
