JEB FIGHTS BACK Mon Sep 27 2004 20:33:05 ET
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's office yesterday said charges by former President Jimmy Carter that the state is "likely" to have a repetition of the voting problems that plagued the 2000 election are politically motivated by Democrats intent on undermining voter confidence in the state.
The WASHINGTON TIMES's Joe Curl will report on Tuesday: State officials also said the former president made no attempt to get up-to-date information before writing an opinion piece and never tried to contact the governor's office or that of Secretary of State Glenda Hood.
"This is a shockingly partisan opinion piece and it's unfortunate that a person such as the former president is being used by the Democratic Party for low-level political rhetoric," said Jacob DiPietre, press secretary for Gov. Jeb Bush.
Carter reminds me of a hamster in a Habitrail. Yeah, that's it. Carter's "Habitrail for Humanity".
What former DemocRAT President could even spell class? Let alone have any!
B.tch slap him Jeb !!!!!
When will he ever realize how much damage he has already done to the country? Doesn't he have a shred of decency? When will he stop?
Ever read the Book, "The Real Jimmy Carter"? It tears the cover off this hypocrite. Here is my book review on Amazon.com...obviously FIVE STARS....
The Truth is Here, June 13, 2004
This book Is riveting to me because I lived through all the events. This book is not a positional polemic. Hayward runs a logical thread through Carter's career and replays it with clarity. What emerges is a "plan" that is either the product of total ineptitude or gross malfeasance. Hayward points out from scores of quotes from such right wing sources as Daniel Patrick Moynihan, "The New Republic," and Tip O'Neill that Carter's "policies" as president were nothing more than series of "choose and lose" blunders, a potpourri of esoteric mushy/moralistic wishes and noble intentions that were light years from what Jack Welch calls "The Reality Principle."
Carter SAYS he is a Christian but an examination of the proof points for that assertion shows this may be a simple storefront to mask his meglomania. His favorite word is the personal pronoun " I " and he is the hero of every story he tells. This book shows how Carter is addicted to flattery - even from the coarsest dictators, that he is a mean-spirited and detached loner who puts up with others only if they genuflect to his syrupy guile. If Carter is a Christian, then Yasser Arafat is Francis of Assisi. At least, this is how Carter sees this murderous thug who masquerades as a "head of state." His other close buddies? Mostly Stalinists like Kim Jong Il's predecessor, Mohammed Fara Aidid, and others of the same ilk. Truly amazing.
After seeing the wonderful tribute to Reagan at his passing, the contrast to Carter is larger than ever. Carter preyed on the minds of the American people to give him another chance after he took the American people to task for their materialism in 1979 rather than taking responsibility for the disasterous conditions HIS amateurish policies brought about. Thankfully, the American people didn't buy it and the current generation was providentially delivered from disaster in the election of 1980. This book is a recap of what REALLY happened. It is long overdue to isolate and advertise Carter's record and along with Soviet Communism consign it to the ash heap of history.
The bright and funny members of the Carter clan died early of cancer. This prune-faced whiner needs to thank God that he is still breathing and stop making such an a** of himself in his remaining years.
Good one, even though I realize the original comment was in jest.
The idiot is suppressing the democrat vote - no sense for democrats to go to the polls, since it is all rigged, he suggests.
We recall the quality of your leadership and are not surprised you are still a fool.
Does anybody but the far left take Carter seriously? He was the single worst president of the 20th century (and that includes Nixon).
Carter our worse ex-President........is a national disgrace. Why he thinks he is qualified to pass judgment on anything is beyond me. I still remember the long gas lines and high interest rates during is armpit administration How he gave away the Panama Cannel. How he treated the Shaw of Iran, how Ayatollah Khomeini kicked his ass and his wimp like attempt to free American hostages.
Something happened to Carter when he went to the Whitehouse.
To me he is one of the greatest personable mysteries walking this planet, and he seems to be trying to walk this planet, almost "to and fro" I would say.
I am not impressed with Carter's brand of "Christianity." It certainly does not seem very charitable.
This looks like a good one its at his online library.
Who cares what one of the U.S.'s worst President's has to say anyway. He rates lower than Ford IMO.
I just sent them this:
Re: Mr. Carter's Comments about the Florida Voting
Dear Mr. Carter:
May I make a suggestion? SHUT UP! We have enough problems in this country without you trying to undermine our elections and the confidence that the people have in our government by declaring our elections to be fraudulent before we even vote!
I am sorry that I voted for you in 1976, and even more sorry that I worked for your campaign. You obviously do not have a clue.
Brilliant (actually used my real name)
Winter Park, FL
Now I hear he's running for sainthood.
I like what Norman Liebmann at Firehat.com has to say about Jimmy's Habitats for humanity, where he got the brilliant idea to attach front porches to outhouses.
but my big question is this? Does he really love Hitler, but can't say so cause it's not OK to love Hitler? After all, he loves Castro, Chavez, and the rest. Only a dark, sick SOB could want to rub elbows with someone who dominates other humans the way Castro has.
Anyone notice that Democrat ex-Presidents can never become true statesmen, retire to their home towns and live off their great achievements? Oooooops! Now we know why they can't. Their legacy was one of selling out America at every turn.
He's really gone over the top now, though, declaring the US election to be fraudulent even before we have it.
We all remember the Jimmy Carter Desert Classic.
I don't agree. He did not sell American nuclear secrets to the Red Chinese.
Here's a hammer, Jimmuh. Go pound sand.
carter is scum. Sad to say about a former president, but rigging elections in favor of despots, arming N. Korea with nukes, and being friends with Michael Moore....Scum.
Great example and proof the Democrats don't want a fair election. They want one slanted in their favor.
An executive with an electronic voting machine company told me that his firm's machines, which had been used in Venezuela for several years, was replaced by electronic voting machines made by a company that is majority owned by the Venezuelan government.
Is there any wonder that opponents are screaming fraud. And to think Carter certified that fiasco.
That is the absolute truth although most people aren't aware of it. He did grievous damage to the maritime industry. I know, I have lived (and suffered) through it.
Personally, I don't like the electronic voting either. It's Democratic plot to steal the election. Afterall, it was their idea to change the system.
Some say Jimmy has lost his ability to think for himself, so Kerry tells him how he can help him to win, but I think the man is illiterate myself! Just like all the liberals who believe in the trash of the liberal agenda! Brain washed is more like it!
Were you alive in the late 70s? Carter gave Iran to the Mullahs, who are now on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons. His economic numbers were the worst since the Depression, and we were being humiliated in the Iranian hostage crisis.
The man was spineless.
Clinton was a terrible man, but his presidency was in no way worse than Carter's.
And killer rabbits.
Ooooh! I like that one.
They are setting it up for another challenge like Algore pulled. They have been planning this for years.
Carter and LBJ are tied for the worst Presidents in my lifetime, and that goes back to vaguely remembering JFK.
LBJ was the first president to fight a "sensitive" war (Vietnam), where our guys weren't allowed to go all-out to beat the N. Viets, allowing the far-left and the MSM to take control of the war debate. He also expanded the welfare state by leaps and bounds, and began the inflationary period that only Ronald Reagan and Paul Volcker ended.
Carter can be fairly seen as the father of Islamic terorrism, as he was the first to give it a homeland of its own (Iran), knowing full well what the Ayatollah Khomeni was all about. He also presided over 13% inflation (in 1980), a 21% prime interest rate, 16% mortgages, and a feeling that we would never again be what we once were, both economically and as world leaders.
He was so bad that even the MSM, which had a near ironclad control over news in 1980, couldn't save him from the hated (by MSM) Ronald Reagan.
That would be pretty stupid, don't you think?
which in particular contains the following damning quote:
You seem to have forgotten that loyal Democrats elected you as mayor and as state senator. Loyal Democrats, including members of my family and me, elected you as lieutenant governor and as governor. It was a loyal Democrat, Lester Maddox, who assigned you to high positions in the state government when you were out of office. It was a loyal Democrat, Roy Barnes, who appointed you as U.S. Senator when you were out of office. By your historically unprecedented disloyalty, you have betrayed our trust. Great Georgia Democrats who served in the past, including Walter George, Richard Russell, Herman Talmadge, and Sam Nunn disagreed strongly with the policies of Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and me, but they remained loyal to the party in which they gained their public office.
Carter is here admitting that Party loyalty comes before loyalty to country.
The only thing missing was the salutation "Dear Comrade:"
PS My apologies as a newbie if I violated protocol by reposting a thread under the wrong title, or excerpted too much. Please let me know by private e-mail...
This is the man that certified the validity of the Venezuelan elections that kept Chavez in power.
Then we heard murmurs that perhaps he had been misled.
So did Arafat; so what?
"Jimmy Carter is a jack ass, I think the old tire biter should check into "Sunny Acres" retirement home "
"tire biter", Jimmy Carter?? LOL Since when was he even close to being aggressive. More like passive to A FAULT has always been his trait.
good email. to the point, peanut needs that point shoved right up his nose!!
I didnt realize that Norman Liebmann was still around.I really like the guy hes right on the edge of that envelope.
as to the peanut,yes I bet he does hold hitler in high esteem,after all he does embrace other dictators. the man is poscessed by some thing dark and wicked.
Jimmy was a low-level president, the biggest piece of trash POTUS ever, until Clinton came along. They both need to go away.
He is the spark.
Wish we cut the traitor off of American taxpayers monies. carter is a disgrace.......as bad as clintoon
John Ellis Bush. Not Edward.
