    You think Carter secretly has blacks working on his peanut farm?

So again let's hold off on these other mickey mouse issues that will resolve themselves over time and embrace Carter's wisdom to help educate us all on what is really hurting this administration because if we can eliminate racism we can all unite and have health care reform. What do we want? HEALTH CARE! When do we want it? NOW!
    I think at this particular time we need to tell Carter to STFU.

    Re: Jimmy "Smeagol" Carter plays the worn race card

    Context for Carter's statement:

    "I think it’s based on racism," Carter said, referring to some of the recent criticism of President Obama. "There is an inherent feeling among some people that an African-American should not be President of the United States."

    The public depiction of President Obama as a Nazi and other negative images is troubling, Carter said.

    "The outrage we see, the scatological language, the signs we see on TV... those kind of things are not just caused by a debate over whether we should have a national healthcare system," Carter said.


    The remarks stemmed from a question asking the former President what he thought of US Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC), who shouted "You lie" at President Obama during a speech on healthcare reform he delivered to a joint session of US Congress on September 09, 2009.
    [Carter called the remark "a dastardly thing to do."

    "The President is not only the head of government, he is the head of state," Carter said. "No matter who he is or how much we disagree with his policies, the President should be treated with respect."

    What do you expect from the crazy old Left? Just look to Britain under New Labour for your own futures 9 years on.

    **Without any slew of evidence whatsoever, the premise of these arguments and discussions look just like the scribble above.

    Yeah? So? Where's he been for the last 40 years when Republicans were routinely called "Nazis"? Where was he when on the House floor, Democrats referred to "the Taliban wing of the Republican Party"? At a time when we had people dying fighting the actual Taliban? (Of course we still do, but this was very early on.)

    But just 13 percent of whites and 12 percent of blacks consider themselves racially biased.
    Wow. Only 10% or so consider themselves straight-up racist. That's not enough for a current at all.

    Actually, it is. Then add in the subverted racism detailed in the article and you're all good.
