[Jimmy] Carter: Racism plays major role in opposition to Obama [HURL ALERT]
CNN.com ^ | 16 Sep 09 | CNN (Communist News Network)

Posted on 09/16/2009 5:16:13 PM PDT by seanmerc

(CNN) -- Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that racial politics played a role in South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's speech to Congress last week and in some of the opposition the president has faced since taking office.

Former President Carter tells "NBC Nightly News" that racism has surfaced in opposition to President Obama. "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American," Carter told "NBC Nightly News." "I live in the South, and I've seen the South come a long way, and I've seen the rest of the country that shares the South's attitude toward minority groups at that time, particularly African-Americans."

"That racism inclination still exists, and I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of belief among many white people -- not just in the South but around the country -- that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply," Carter said.

Michael Steele, who is the first African-American to chair the Republican National Committee, denied Wednesday that race is fueling protests.

"President Carter is flat-out wrong," Steele said in a statement. "This isn't about race. It is about policy."

Is there anyone out there who still can’t figure out why Jimmah is considered the worst president of all time? He’s a moron! Billy was the smart one. He sold beer.

Jimmy Carter is always in a mad rush to make a fool of himself. Just because he won the Nobel Peace Prize doesn’t make him a savant. Yasar Arafat was also a winner of that award.
We that are dissatisfied with Obama and his administration could give a flying flip about race. Its about the rush to bring the USA into third world status. The deficit they are signing us into will bring us into bondage. The president’s advisers can’t wait to shackle the free enterprise system. Others want to shackle those who do not agree with the president’s agenda.

The only race we’re concerned about is the American race.

If this is Carter’s reasoning, there is no wonder he was a dud as our president.

He’s doing his part to help 0bama become a failed one-term president, too.

James Earl Carter, the gift that keeps on giving. Whenever the slightest danger arises (and it is very very slight) that we'll have a tinge of regret for turfing him out The Man From Plains shows up to remind us just how stupid and mean-spirited he is.

Thanks Jimmah, for being the first Democrat I ever voted against. And thanks for reminding me why.

I’ve been furious with Jimmy Carter for over 30 years- but I think I’m not mad at him anymore. He’s a pitiful old man.

People get old in different ways- GHWB goes skydiving to stay alert and loves living. Carter seeks attention.

A dear friend of mine has a dad who’s aging like Carter..he just isn’t rational anymore and says outlandish things hoping for attention. He gets it- so does Carter.

It occurs to me that all these people who keep bringing up the President’s *black half* are the racists...they refuse to see that he isn’t actually black, he is white, just like his momma.

Dhimmi Carter should just be happy that he will no longer be a candidate for the worst President ever. obama already proved that he himself deserves that title, in 200 short days!!!!

Americans are NOT opposed to obama because he is an African-American. obama is not a real African-American, in the normal sense of that word, a descendant of black American slaves. obama is no American at all, of any kind!! His cracked mother raised him to be a citizen of the world, not America. And that is what obama is—a creature of the New World Order.

People are opposed to obama because his policies are monstrous and evil. He and his hideous “czars” (commissars, really) intend to ration health care for seniors, the disabled, and others, sentence them to early, painful deaths, and to set up a national surveillance system under the guise of “electronic medical records”. Despite the drastically lower quality of health care under the obama system, the whole scheme will be more costly than the current health care system, driving the deficit ever higher and higher.

If one is really interested in health care reform, not demographic engineering and communist dictatorship, one should tear up all bills in Congress, start over (preferably after January 2010), and use an approach like this:

http://www.newmediajournal.us/staff/dicintio/2009/08282009.htm

But obama and his commissars are interested not in health, or the good of the American people, but their nefarious, monstrously evil schemes. That is why there is such an infernal RUSH to pass his bill NOW.

This must not stand!!!!

Folks, me thinks we have a "double whammy" race card in office.

Both ends are being played.

We have a mindless POTUS and he is lacking conviction, thus he is playing all angles for favor.

So I guess racism at the heart of the Dems’ opposition to the RNC, since that is led by a black man, too. And racism is why they disagree with Thomas Sowell’s viewpoints.

Jimmah is an antisemitic, so I guess scum like him would be speaking from experience.

Jimmah’s most patriotic act was losing to Reagan

NRO has an excellent article on Jimmah Cartuh, called the Georgia Pharisee

I was going to post it, but I got so caught up in another article that they linked to, that I forgot.

Here's the second article. It has everything you ever wanted to know about ACORN. Inside Obama's ACORN

He is a constant embarrassment...speaking nonsense.
He is the “crazy uncle” of exPresidents..The world takes him seriously because he embarrasses the US.
He abuses his position...
I'd love to tell him to his face how I feel about him.
I don't blame him for being partisan..I blame him for being wrong on so many weighty matters and embarrassing our country.
His comments about racism are absurd...He is absurd.

I doubt the black Jimmy Carter likes the white Jimmy Carter out there in public blurting out what the leftist base of the Democratic Party thinks of the majority of the country which is not in favor of the Democrats' health-care plan.

Mara Liasson on the Fox All-Stars this evening opined that Carter was helping the Republicans. Maybe so...but I remember Hillary going on Matt Lauer's program and making up some nonsense about a "vast right-wing conspiracy" which was initially dismissed by pundits but soon became the media template for how the Lewinsky scandal was reported.
