Mediocrity and incompetence, in the form of former president Jimmy Carter, is now fanning the racism flame in what can only be a last ditch effort by democrats to deflect loud and vocal criticism of Barack Obama and his policies, particularly the all-but-dead healthcare reform bill.

Misery loves company and Jimmy Carter apparently needs some attention again. Could the democrats actually want the worst president in history defend the policies of what will become the worst presidency in our history? I guess so. Any criticism of the The One these days is rooted in racism – we do, in case you didn’t know, have our first black president. Now, with 55% of Americans disapproving of Barack Obama’s health care plan, they trot out Carter to pile on with the racism stuff. It’s got to be a joke if it weren’t so serious.

Jimmy Carter, like many leftists in this country, is eager to label any dissent against the president as racist. Does he have a sixth sense about these things? An acute ability to spot racism even when common sense proves otherwise? Hardly. He, himself, is a flaming anti-semite.

Believing that ‘racial politics’ has played a role in some of the opposition of Obama policies, Carter said this:

“I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African-American,” Carter told “NBC Nightly News.” “I live in the South, and I’ve seen the South come a long way, and I’ve seen the rest of the country that shares the South’s attitude toward minority groups at that time, particularly African-Americans.”

“That racism inclination still exists, and I think it’s bubbled up to the surface because of belief among many white people — not just in the South but around the country — that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It’s an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply,” Carter said.

Sincere debate is apparently no longer recognized by the disgraceful Jimmy Carter. He has stupidly played into the hands of an orchestrated campaign – playing hardball with the race card – to progress a failing Obama agenda.

When President Bush was in office, how often did Jimmy Carter and the lamestream media speak out about the horrible hate speech directed at him over eight years? Do you remember all the revolting anti-Bush posters such as the one with a gun being held to President Bush’s head or the movie made about his assassination? All clearly the fantasies of the insane left. Did anyone with a bully pulpit rail on the left about all the horrible signs, slogans and violence that marked the many marches protesting President Bush and his administration? Nope.

Frankly I don’t care what color, sex, or religion the President is. I care about his policies and his intentions for this country. Period. Ignorance and stupidity – Jimmy Carter? Please. Just. Go. Away.

We have photos and a video below that you can watch of Jimmy Carter claiming that it is indeed Racism that plays a part in opposition to Obama.
