Seriously, the Obama campaign is doing everything wrong they can do. They are asking for more stimulus in a bad economy and one that seems to be turning down even more, attacking opponents even when there is nothing to attack, bringing on board Bill “Bull in a china shop” Clinton, and now they are going to insert former President Jimmy “Peanut” Carter into the Democrat National Convention speaking platform.
Well Carter will not be in Charlotte, N.C. live, but he will address the convention on Tuesday, September 4, according to a press release.
Los Angeles Mayor and Convention Chair Antonio Villaraigosa said in the release:
“President Carter is one of the greatest humanitarian leaders of our time and a champion of democracy around the globe.”
There is no doubt that Jimmy Carter has done some good things with organizations like “Habitat For Humanity,” but seriously he has not been a “champion of democracy.”
Now you have to catch the irony here. First, Barack Obama has been compared to Jimmy Carter numerous times. While Jimmy Carter is considered to be one of the worst presidents in U.S. history, Obama has far surpassed what Jimmy Carter did and may just outdo the former president when it comes to being a bad president.
Second, Carter was one that wanted Mitt Romney to win the GOP nomination last year. He did so because he believed Barack Obama would be more likely to win reelection against Romney. That’s not as ironic, I know as Obama being compared to Carter, because the Obama campaign wanted Rommey as well.
The worst president in U.S. history, prior to Obama said in a press release “Rosalynn and I regret that we will be unable to be at the Democratic Convention this year in Charlotte. However, we remain steadfast in our support for President Obama and the progress he will make in the next four years.”
Well let’s not hold our breath just yet. Neither party even has an actual nominee and so far all we’ve seen from Barack Obama is continuing to blame Bush, slaps in the face of American businesses, taxing the American people with a health care law they don’t want, and a failing economic policy. I would hardly call that “progress.”
But I’m sure with Jimmy Carter we’ll get to fire some cracks off at the “peanut gallery.”
