Apparently, Jimmy actually listened to the trial, and unlike so many others who thought GZ should be found guilty of SOMETHING, Jimmy can actually read, write and knows what the law states. Go tell it on the mountain, Jimmah!!

It has been so long that I can’t remember the last time I agreed with Carter on anything. I suspect by tomorrow morning he will say he misspoke.

What I find sad about Jimmy Carter is that he really is an intelligent man - who is also a Southern Baptist and Sunday School teacher, and unfortunately, is on the wrong side of politics.

He's not, and if you had lived through his administration, you'd know that firsthand.

He was either a very intellgent man intent on detroying this country, or a complete idiot.

Unlike BHO, who is working overtime to destroy, Jimmy was just an idiot.

“...from the second worst president in our history.”

I think he made the statement just to seal the deal, on the far-off chance that FUBO’s poll numbers somehow rise.

DING! DING! DING!

We have a Winner!

I think Jimmah's verdict was pending the outcome of the "Jewish" rumors, but once that was cleared up, he was CERTAIN that the jury was right.

I'd put him in the top 5 or 6. Both LBJ and Woodrow Wilson had more years to do damage. Then there was FDR, grand-daddy of them all, so maybe Jimbo even drops to #6. Particularly when you consider his four years of misrule was so bad that even Massachusetts voted for Ronald Reagan twice.

FDR gets a few points for leadership in World War II, many of which are negated by the previous nine years.

However, I still think James Buchanan was worse than BO if only for the fact that he ushered in a civil war. But BO has 3.5 more years to go.

I’m not surprised by this at all.

Carter is, first and foremost, an engineer. Navy nuke reactor guy (submarines - although he left due to family hardship before being assigned to a boat) who went through the old Rickover school.

Engineers, IMHO, make the best jurors (I’ve said this a couple of times on other threads about this travesty, er, trial). They’ll take a very dispassionate, and also very thorough approach based on fact, evidence and logic.

Which is one of the reasons why so few make it onto a jury. Usually one side or the other wants to mount a case based in emotion ... something engineers are pretty good at compartmentalizing out of the equation.

Cut and paste the source link into your browser and read what he actually said. His reasoning was as flawed as always. He just managed to be wrong by 360 degrees this time.
