    For that matter, I think that both Carter and Bush were men of high character and morals. Both were dumb as a box of rocks.
    From what I've seen, quality of a man's character is in inverse proportion to their effectiveness as President.

    I have seen Chihuahuas who would make better Presidents than Carter.

    Screw him.
    As opposed to the guy who came after him, an alzheimers ridden failed actor who gave us Iran-Contra, the crack epidemic, hush-hushed AIDS, Operation Charly etc. Well.... hmm... alright.

    It's also interesting to note that many right-wing politicians and spiritual leaders on the right were/are TRULY anti-Semites, yet they continue to receive accolades by some of the same people who would criticize Carter.

    Well, you're half right. "high character and morals" torture, rendition, WMD lies, Guantanamo, just the tip of the iceberg. From the source. GWShiiteForBrains still studying "My Pet Goat." Smart as a whip. Agreed. Tell that whip to sit up and beg.

    When the Hebrews are the only people considered to be semites, all the Arab haters get a free pass on their anti-semitism.

    Washingtonpost.com: New Tapes Reveal Depth of Nixon's Anti-Semitism

    Beset by the leak of a top-secret history of the Vietnam War and rising unemployment statistics that were hurting his standing in the polls in summer of 1971, President Richard M. Nixon lashed out repeatedly at "the Jews" he saw at the root of his problems.

    "The Jews are all over the government," Nixon complained to his chief of staff, H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, in an Oval Office meeting recorded on one of a set of White House tapes released yesterday at the National Archives. Nixon said the Jews needed to be brought under control by putting someone "in charge who is not Jewish" in key agencies.

    Washington "is full of Jews," the president asserted. "Most Jews are disloyal." He made exceptions for some of his top aides, such as national security adviser Henry Kissinger, his White House counsel, Leonard Garment, and one of his speechwriters, William Safire, and then added:

    "But, Bob, generally speaking, you can't trust the bastards. They turn on you. Am I wrong or right?"
    I rarely see anyone call Nixon out as an anti-Semite, except the intellectually honest.

    Right.....

    Sheldon Adelson gave both Gingrich and Romney millions in campaign money.
