    Jimmy Carter Named Most Trusted U.S. Politician in New Poll.....

    Americans really, really trust Hollywood. They are, however, far more skeptical of Washington, D.C.

    A new survey on the most trusted people in America finds actors taking the top three spots: Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and Denzel Washington. The first politician to appear on the list is former President Jimmy Carter, who comes in at number 24.



    Carter, 88, often referred to as the most successful ex-president in American history, has earned bipartisan praise since leaving office for his work on behalf of various humanitarian causes.

    During his successful 1976 presidential campaign, Carter won over a majority of American voters with his “Trust Me” campaign slogan.

    The surveyed asked 1,000 participants who they trusted the most and was conducted by The Wagner Group for Readers Digest.

    President Obama made the list as well but came in at number 65.

    According to the list, Obama was edged out by none other than Adam Sandler, named the 64th most trusted person in America.

    No other former president made the list, though Hillary Clinton, a potential 2016 candidate, came in at number 51....snip~

    Regardless of what you think of him as a president, he embodies some of the best qualities of humanity. Of course, you need to take off your rancid partisan hat to see it.

    In your Old English.....that's called Respect. ( I know.....that was a perfect lead in for Aretha and Some R.E.S.P.E.C.T. )

    I have always thought Jimmy Carter was a man of high morals and a good man all around but horrible president. His moral standing is more significant due to the fact he was the last president with any morals at all until Obama.

    To be honest, I have difficultly understanding most of your posts, except for when you quote articles or other people. Maybe it's the barrage of smilies.

    Regardless, what I said was the truth. Some people have a real hate on for Carter.

    I agree. A great person, just a bad president.

    I would have to agree with you Mak.....I doubt to many on the Right can deny that Carter despite being a Horrible President was a Good Man. Not all into that smack talking.

    Always led in talking with Respect. Even if he disagreed with them. At least he would listen.

    Cant say the same for Obama.

    No, Sister Teresa embodies the best traits of humanity. And he's no longer a politician, but an ordinary citizen. Rancid partisanship is putting him on a pedestal.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I would have to very strongly disagree with you about Teresa, but that is for another forum.
