Jimmy Carter wants Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee
The Ticket ^ | 09/16/11 | Chris Moody

Posted on 09/16/2011 11:57:30 AM PDT by Baladas

Former President Jimmy Carter wants to see Mitt Romney win the Republican nomination and run against President Obama next November.

"I hope he wins," Carter said of the former Massachusetts governor in a Thursday night interview with MSNBC. "I'm not taking a position, but I would be very pleased to see him win the Republican nomination."

Of course he does. Then he and his fellow libs can bring up all the history of Mormonism’s teachings about black people during the campaign and say it’s “racist” to vote for a Mormon against Obama.

Carter wants Romney... should tell any republican voter something..
At least it should peak their “Whats up with dat?” meter..

Do you agree with Jimmah Cartier or laugh at him?..

I think it’s Axlegrease’s secret plan.

Have Dems go heavy for Mitt in open primary states, secure the nomination for him, spark a Tea Party revolt, and Baraq wins with a Clintonian plurality.

I'm sure the Romney campaign will be thrilled by this. They have probably gone straight into damage control mode.

If Romney was smart he would come straight out and say the last thing any politician wants is the endorsement of the worst U.S. President ever, then correct himself and say ex-president.

“Carter, a Democrat, added that he thinks Romney would lose in a match up against Obama, and that he supports the president's re-election.”

Carter says he hopes Romney will get the Republican nomination because he thinks he will lose to Obama in the general election.

Most Democrats feel that way. It is the same thing they said about McCain.

I think you are on to something there. Carter would be pulling for the weakest Republican to get nominated by the GOP. Carter must feel Perry is the stronger GOP candidate.

Carter, a Democrat, added that he thinks Romney would lose in a match up against Obama, and that he supports the president's re-election.

He isn't endorsing Romney as the excepted portion suggests. He just thinks he would be the easiest candidate for ObaMao to beat.

He thought the same thing about Ronald Reagan. He may just be trying to put the Reagan mantle on Mittens.

So the cagey little bast*rd is just playing with our heads here. Ignore him.

Wow! Romney would never have solicited Carter's support. What a major turnoff for those considering Romney!

I count LBJ up there in the worst President column.

Obama is far and away the worst, but LBJ got us the so called Great Society while killing 56,000 good American military running a war from the White House.

My vote is Obama #1 worse, LBJ #2, and jimmy yum yum #3.

This is not an endorsement Mitt is pleased to receive.

Next we will see Obama endorsing Mitt.

Has to give one pause. Carter knows that his endorsement is anathema to conservatives and that it will only help Perry. That’s the only reason to say something at this stage. Looks like they’re trying to deep-six who they perceive as the strongest general election challenger to Obama while they can - Romney.

Jimmah should be worrying that Mittens will run against Barry in the Democrat primaries. Mittens is a much better liberal Democrat.
