    Can't believe that at his age, he's still sharp as a tack. Maybe God has indeed blessed him for all the good work he's done over the years. God, I wish he was in office now.

    Jimmy Carter's should pray for both himself and Stephen Colbert. Actually more for himself. He is a pathetic fool who fools himself, and is ignorant of Christ. He did NOT tell the truth. He would come to the White House early with his sweater early in the morning saying that he was doing the work of the people, but a Secret Service agent revealed he would promptly go to sleep on the couch. He was a LIAR. There is no such thing as "white lies". And Carter is a horrible liar!

    I like when his policy intellect gets a chance to kick in, after all the silly fluff questions, at 5:49. He's still freakin' sharp at 93. Awesome. And I saw his black limo drive by as a boy in the late '70s.

    Well, he's right, when we sanction the hell out of some place like Venezuela, it's never clear whether their problems are due to their government, ours, or both. It's like the opposite of helping those less fortunate. It's like, "Oh, you're less fortunate? Here, let us screw up your economy a little more!"

    I LOVE Jimmy Carter..... I wish I could have somehow been connected to him at an early age.... if he had been my mentor, I would have grown up so much better and so much faster than the 40 some odd years it took me to open my eyes and SEE...... and begin to live a life I can be proud of......I also agree with him about being against harsh sanctions that only serve to hurt the people of nations where dictators are already making their lives so difficult.

  • Grumpy Oldfart
    Grumpy Oldfart 5 days ago

    More proof there is no god. Lots of people are praying for that and......well? Here's the problem. Lots of people prayed for Trump to be president, and lots prayed for him to not be president, lots more are praying he doesn't screw up (to late on that one). So does that mean god has answered the prayers of the supporters? They sure think it does. So why would anyone that is on the other side continue to pray. Might you change gods mind if you pray harder? The least anyone can do for something is pray for it. Save your prayers and get off your ass and really do something.

    What a class-act gentleman! I love his sense of humor, especially about praying for Trump and the ways God answers prayers! I, too, pray for Donald Trump, and for the leadership of our country! I believe that God always answers prayers, either by "yes," "no," or "later," when more light has been shown me regarding my prayer request, so that the reason for His answer will make more sense to me! I also believe that God put Trump in as president, in order to help fulfill prophecy and hasten Jesus' second coming! The Bible says that there will be wars and rumors of wars, and that the last days will be as they were in Sodom and Gomorrah's (Lot's) time as well as in the days of Noah! With the kind of leadership we currently have in Trump, he really needs our prayers! I shudder for him when he stands in the judgment day and the books are opened for all the world to see!

    God bless President Carter !!! One of the most moral men of recent years !!! Jimmy should have served 4 terms like FDR !
    I am proud to say I voted for this fine man every time possible !!!
    Reagan, as a private citizen, subverted the vote in 1980, by dealing with Iran to not release the hostages until after the election, note. This has recently come out. Treason. Well in times of peace, perhaps not treason, but a crime nonetheless.
    Reagan wrecked our unions and economy and the lot of the working man. If Carter had served a second term, the USA would be in much, much better shape today. And the 2008 banker fiasco might not have happened.
    Reagan stopped enforcing monopoly law, and labor law. A child actor and hippie + union basher, Ronald Reagan.

    Jimmy Carter and Zibignew Brzezinski were the people who did the most to wreck Afghanistan. Under them they launched the coup against the gov't of Afghanistan(1978) in order to draw the Soviets into Afghanistan, which led to the Death and Injury of over 6.5 million Afghans. No, Carter is a criminal no matter how much he hides behind his Bible. He had better pray too, because if there is a God Almighty and Judgement Day, Jimmy Carter will be feeling the heat.
