    Say what you want about Jimmy Carter's actual presidency, but I think in all of US history there has never been a better man in the White House and especially after he was in the White House. The world is blessed to still have Jimmy Carter (as of when I made this comment anyway) and I hope we continue to have Jimmy Carter for as long as possible.

    Jimmy Carter was asked in 1977 if the United States had a moral obligation to help rebuild Vietnam, Carter responded that “the destruction was mutual. You know, we went to Vietnam without any desire to capture territory or to impose American will on other people. We went there to defend the freedom of the South Vietnamese. And I don’t feel that we ought to apologize or to castigate ourselves or to assume the status of culpability.”

    Interesting comment. From 1962-75, the war resulted in 2.5 million Vietnamese dead (military and civilian), more dying to this day as a result of exposure to chemicals such as agent orange. He believes no apology is required, no culpability on part of USA. And to say the destruction was mutual, in effect saying the Vietnamese didn't give a shit about their own country?

    I'm glad Jimmy Carter is building houses for the poor.

    I think one term was a blessing in disguise. Another four years really takes a toll on a President. If he had won again, he might not be with us today.

    Reagan replaced this guy and installed Reaganomics in this country. The whole "trickle down economics" thing that is the reason we have a 20 trillion dollar debt. Had Carter won re election, gore beaten Bush, America would he so well off right now.

    That's nice. Doing stuff. I hear rumors, in my head, telling me he's a deeply guilty man - that all American presidents shrug off the fact that any of them needs at least one deal, one ah-hah moment, not racism (thank goodness) but probably something like cereal mascots or replacing the military with mind-waves for liberals. That's what's good about Trump. His deal is himself, maybe that's a deal in and of itself. In some serious way, you grow up and learn all the real issues relate much the same as some secret deal, and you just need to be a democrat. No matter how many ways you weigh that in your head, don't think you ever could, sometimes even on the left at least now after George W. Bush - Obama and Trump only came after that... trucker - and on right certainly there are goonsquads who sympathize with lofty monetary causes. Communism remains as great as it was; glorious morning light until it fails in competition with environmentalists more so than what's going on in this country with "feminists" today. I myself reversed Niagara Falls: don't go any further.

    Jimmy Carter, a useful fool who played into the hands of North Korea in the 90's. He is responsible for the current nuclear threat looming in North East Asia. So, Mr. Carter with all due respect stay put and keep your mouth shut this time. Or you are going to bring down the lives of so many people. What a useful fool. A decent human being? No doubt. But a terrible politician and not a world leader material.

    Carter is a true man of God. He was done in by the Iranian hostage crisis. It made him look helpless, especially when his rescue attempt failed so miserably. The thing he valued most about his presidency was the peace talks he held between Israel and Egypt.
