    Love everything about this.  Former President Jimmy Carter is, quite simply, one of the most outstanding, upstanding human beings ever to live.  The work he has done for peace abroad and economic justice in the U.S. speaks for itself.

    That Republicans still bitch and whine about his record and blame even current problems on him---31 years after he left office!!---is beyond pathetic and disgraceful.  His record in office was really not that bad; he was a decent president during a very difficult time for this country and a great man.  Fuck Republicans for ever using him as the model of a bad president, especially considering the criminal who sat in the Oval Office not long before him and the sabre-rattling ideologues and incompetents who came after him.  (Add to that Republicans' insistence that enough time has passed that nothing can be blamed on any former Republican president, most notably our last one but also B-Actor Reagan, G.H.W. Bush, Ford and Tricky Dick, which is similarly pathetic.  I fully intend to tie every Republican in office to G.W. Bush for the rest of my life.)

    Jimmy Carter, I imagine, is so far above getting even with anyone that he doesn't pay this much mind.  His reputation doesn't need any boosting.  Why care what Mitt Romney says about you when the entire rest of the world loves and respects you?  That said, I'm glad his grandson isn't afraid to get into the mud.  Republicans deserve every ounce of it.

      Jimmy Carter is a devout Christian who actually lives his faith. He walks the walk rather than standing around talking the talk.

      The founding fathers knew of the mutually corrupting influences of Church and state, wisely sending them to opposite corners.
