    And?

    Would you let someone with a PhD in engineering diagnose your illness? Would you let a world famous architect do your complicated taxes? Would you let a lawyer install your new bathroom?

    Absolutely. Let me further say Jimmy Carter is a highly intelligent, very compassionate humanitarian. He just didn't have the other right stuff to make it as POTUS.

    There is a unconventional, but true, definition of "politician."

    It is "Professional liar."

    Obama has morals?

    Yeah, promising to close Gitmo more then four years ago (it's still open), assassinating Americans without trial, ramping up the war in Afghanistan, continuing drone strikes that kill many innocent civilians (that are in many cases a technical, act of war), signing the NDAA (which allows the government to detain Americans without trial indefinitely).

    Oh yeah...like GWB before him...he's a beacon of morality.
