Former President Jimmy Carter May not be Dead, But his Presidency Was … Donald Trump Makes Reference at CPAC to the “Late, Great Jimmy Carter” … I’m Not Dead Yet!!! (VIDEO)
Former President Jimmy Carter needs to borrow a line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail … I’m Not Dead Yet!!!
It would appear that Donald Trump was a bit premature in announcing the death of “the late, great Jimmy Carter (VIDEO).” Yesterday at CPAC, The Donald compared the Obama presidency to that of the disastrous, failed presidency of Jimmy Carter. Trump stated that Obama’s job approval numbers at 38% were now in Jimmy Carter territory and that he never thought he would see another presidency like the late, great Jimmy Carter. Oops. Make no mistake, Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States has not passed away. However, Carter’s presidency was.
“We’re getting into Jimmy Carter territory, and I never thought I’d see anything like that again,” he said as the audience chuckled. “I lived through that time and it was not a good time and we’re pretty close – I think maybe by next month we will have surpassed the late, great Jimmy Carter.”
With Barack Obama’s failed foreign and domestic policies and adverse impact on America, it would look like from his falling polling number, Obama’s presidency is dead as well.
How ironic that Jay Leno has never been funnier and NBC is parting ways with him …
Barack Obama is now the nightly fodder for late night comedy and the other night was no different. Jay Leno just shreds Obama’s falling job approval numbers and compares them to that of Ricard Nixon. OUCH! But wait, Jimmy Carter says, that’s not fair, if he had a 5th year, he is sure that he would be lower, ha, ha, ha!!! Many feel that Obama’s second term is Carter’s third term in office.
President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.
Obama’s approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50% — with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.
Former President Jimmy Carter Says the George Zimmerman Jury Got the Verdict Right in the Murder Trial and Death of Trayvon Martin
And now for something completely different, Jimmy Carter says Zimmerman jury got the verdict right.
As resorted at The Politico, former President Jimmy Carter said in an interview on Atlanta news channel WXIA that the jury in the George Zimmerman murder trail got the verdict right. Well this is not going to go over well with the LEFT, Democrat politicians, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder is seeking to go after Civil Rights charges against Zimmerman as Holder fans the flames when there is no evidence that Zimmerman was ever a racist. Oh, and add to it those marching and rioting in the streets, those attacking others in revenge for the verdict and the prosecutors in Florida who lost and still have sour grapes. I have to give Carter some credit on this one. He is actually being rather responsible in his comments and is basing his comments on the law, not emotion. With the insanity, hateful comments and threats that have come from those opposing the verdict, it’s only a matter of time before Carter is referred to as a “creepy ass cracker”.
“I think the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented, because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman that he was not at all defending himself, and so forth,” Carter told Atlanta news channel WXIA. “It’s not a moral question, it’s a legal question and the American law requires that the jury listens to the evidence presented.”
Carter thinks America is moving forward and making progress. I sue hope so.
Obama is No GWB … 88,000 Jobs Created in March, Labor Force Participation Rate Falls to 34 Year Low, Americans Dying in Afghanistan & North Korea Threatening Nuclear War as Barack Obama Plays Golf for Second Weekend in a Row
Barack Obama is the worst United States President ever, surpassing even Jimmy Carter … Obama just does not even pretend to care about Americans.
President Barack “Nero” Obama might as well be playing a fiddle as opposed to golfing as the United States collapses and the world burns. On Friday, we learned that the US created a pathetic 88,000 jobs as the unemployment rate fell to 7.6% thanks to the Labor participation rate falling to 34-Year Low of 63.3%, the lowest since May 1979. We all know who was president then, don’t we? More Americans were killed in Afghanistan, the despot dictator of North Korea Kim Jong-un has been threatening nuclear war, the Middle East continues to be a tinderbox, not to mention the record level number of Americans on food stamps and escalated gas and health care prices. All this going on and this clown we call a president goes golfing yet again, for the second weekend in a row.
Shh, don’t let anyone know I could care less about ‘We the People,” it’s all about what perks I can get out of this job
President Obama went out for a round of golf Saturday afternoon, his second weekend in a row to hit the links at a course at Joint Base Andrews. The president golfed with White House aides Marvin Nicholson, Joe Paulsen, and Michael Brush.
When will this president ever take his job seriously and actually show one ounce of empathy with the struggling American people? The answer is never, because that is what this 1% president is all about. Sacrifice is your you, not him. It is “We the People” who are supposed to struggle and make it possible for Obama and his family and the Biden’s to take multiple vacations, while American families stay home. It is obvious Obama could care less about the American people, and a note to black folks, that means you too. Obama acts like nothing is going wrong, yet everything a catastrophe, down to his all important NCAA basketball brackets.
EXIT QUESTION: Would the MSM let a Republican president get away with the perception that a president could care less and go on as business as usual as they demand Americans sacrifice and in the middle of sequestration where others are having their life styles cut? Back in 2012, Obama had played four times more golf than George W. Bush did in eight years. Ironically, it sounds all too familiar to Obama’s budget spending as well. Remember when President GWB gave up golf because in his words, he did not think it was right as Commander in Chief and it sent the wrong message. It is very unfortunate we have a current president in Obama who does not feel the same as Americans continue to die and millions struggle out of work.
“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf,” Bush said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.”
“And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong message,” Bush said.
BREAKING NEWS: Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, Dead at Age 58 (Update: Sean Penn Says … “I Lost a Friend”), (Update: Carter Praises Positive Legacies)
BREAKING NEWS: Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, Dead at Age 58.
Hugo Chavez will not be down for breakfast. The socialist dictator of Venezuela has passed away from cancer. Make room Kim Jung Il, Hell has a new resident. After numerous claims that Chavez was recovering from cancer from his propaganda machine, Chavez succumbed to complication of cancer. His death leaves Venezuela bitterly divided. But isn’t that exactly what a dictator does while in power, divides the people so that they are too busy fighting each other and blaming eash other, than focusing on the real problem, the man in power. Doesn’t that sound familiar, but I digress. Chavez, a devoted enemy of the United States, was praised by his bud, former Democrat President of the United States Jimmy Carter. How misguided could one possibly be and a glimpse into what Democrat presidents believe in and call help to the people. Other Democrats like Rep. Jose E. Serrano (D-NY) released a statement praising former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez; however, neglecting the crackdowns of his political opponents. A glimpse into the Democrat party indeed. According to accounts, elections will be held in 30 days, and Vice President Nicolas Maduro will assume the presidency in the interim.
UPDATE I: As reported by the AP:
We came to know a man who expressed a vision to bring profound changes to his country to benefit especially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized,” Carter said in a statement.
Carter noted that while he did not always agree with Chavez‘s methods, he “never doubted Hugo Chávez’s commitment to improving the lives of millions of his fellow countrymen,” and said that the former Venezuelan president “will be remembered for his bold assertion of autonomy and independence for Latin American governments and for his formidable communication skills and personal connection with supporters in his country and abroad to whom he gave hope and empowerment.”
President Hugo Chavez was a former paratroop commander and self-styled “subversive” who waged continual battle for his socialist ideals. He bedeviled the United States and outsmarted his rivals time and again, while using Venezuela’s vast oil wealth to his political advantage.
Chavez led one coup attempt, defeated another and was re-elected three times. Almost the only adversary it seemed he couldn’t beat was cancer. He died Tuesday in Caracas at age 58, two years after he was first diagnosed.
Hmm, didn’t insanoid, former NBA bad boy and attention whore Dennis Rodman call the socialist dictator of North Korea Kim Jung Un a friend as well? Oh yeah, another enemy of the United States.
“Today the people of the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion,” says Penn in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “I lost a friend I was blessed to have. My thoughts are with the family of President Chavez and the people of Venezuela.”
Penn, who has been a longtime supporter of Chavez, made a surprise appearance in Bolivia in December to attend a candlelight vigil for the health of the leader. Said Penn at the vigil: “He’s one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet, and I’ll wish him nothing but that great strength he has shown over and over again. I do it in love, and I do it in gratitude.”
Take a good look how people are treated by pro-Chavez folks who are perceived being apart of the opposition. A news media crew is attacked under the assumption they were working for the opposition media to Chavez.
UPDATE III: More on the statements from former US President Jimmy Carter because this is really important for Americans to understand about a Democrat party that has so lost its way. How is it possible that we have such prominent Democrats coddling a man who oppressed his people? These are the same people that slam Conservatives, Republicans and the Tea Party … but praise the good of a dictator. As the Gateway Pundit opines, Carter wants you to remember the positive things that Chavez did. Hmm, didn’t Hitler make the trains run on time? Think about that America. Give that one a long good thought. Especially the next time you vote.
Statement From Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on the Death of Hugo Chavez – Carter Center
Rosalynn and I extend our condolences to the family of Hugo Chávez Frías. We met Hugo Chávez when he was campaigning for president in 1998 and The Carter Center was invited to observe elections for the first time in Venezuela. We returned often, for the 2000 elections, and then to facilitate dialogue during the political conflict of 2002-2004. We came to know a man who expressed a vision to bring profound changes to his country to benefit especially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized. Although we have not agreed with all of the methods followed by his government, we have never doubted Hugo Chávez’s commitment to improving the lives of millions of his fellow countrymen.[...]
At the same time, we recognize the divisions created in the drive towards change in Venezuela and the need for national healing. We hope that as Venezuelans mourn the passing of President Chávez and recall his positive legacies — especially the gains made for the poor and vulnerable — the political leaders will move the country forward by building a new consensus that ensures equal opportunities for all Venezuelans to participate in every aspect of national life.
