I don't think Carter is so much of an idiot as he is a bitter old man...who squandered his presidency by being perceived by the world as weak...I think he is also a dangerous and disloyal to our country...but thankfully has been out of the loop and marginalized for years...

Sorry you failed to comprehend what he was talking about.

People hailing from a party which shoved Bush down our throats, are in no position to say who is an "idiot", having demonstrated such lousy judgment and instincts. Bush universally recognized as the worst President in history, a man "frighteningly ignorant." He doesn't belong in the same conversation as Jimmy Carter.

I'm honored that the great Jimmy Carter is still among us.
Your post makes no sense. (I know business as usual) He stood for deregulation which is what conservatives want.

Personally, yes. Politically, no.

I thought he did a very good job describing the issues he is currently working on. It appears to have a good understanding the situations.

As for the "missing children", did you really not understand that he was talking about female fetuses that were aborted simply for the desire to have male children? How this gender selection process is creating societies with way more men than women?
Of course I understood. It's exactly what he said. And even after he said it in response to the equally dumb look on Letterman's face, it was still a really stupid thing to say.

No matter how you dice it and try to rationalize it as being smart, it was stupid. I don't know anything about his IQ. If it's indeed the highest of any president, it's merely proof that high IQ doesn't make for a good leader.

And I voted for him! lol

Yes, your description is more accurate than mine.

Its not stupid. Carter was addressing a real issue.

China's population: The most surprising demographic crisis | The Economist

In addition to skewing the country's age distribution, the one-child policy has probably exacerbated its dire gender imbalance. Many more baby boys are born in China than baby girls. China is not unique in this; other countries, notably India, have encountered similar problems without coercive population controls. But Chinese officials do not dispute that the one-child policy has played a role. China's strong cultural imperative for male offspring has led many families to do whatever they must to ensure that their one permissible child is a son. In the earliest days of the one-child policy, this sometimes meant female infanticide. As ultrasound technology spread, sex-selective abortions became widespread.
The new census data show that little progress is being made to counter this troubling trend. Among newborns, there were more than 118 boys for every 100 girls in 2010. This marks a slight increase over the 2000 level, and implies that, in about 20 or 25 years' time, there will not be enough brides for almost a fifth of today's baby boys—with the potentially vast destabilising consequences that could have.


Carter was pointing out, with examples, that the destabilizing consequences of this trend are already occurring.

Why didn't the stupid Chinese go all the way on reason, and run genderless population control?

Damned communists couldn't break themselves from gender authority.

What kind of communism is that!

Fat Mao was afraid of women.

Then he goes on a tangent about female genitals and some kind of worms.

Oh, and global warming.

The guy is a complete embarrassment.

I'll find the YouTube tomorrow. I'm sure it will be up by then.
Obama is younger and despite how well-spoken and clean you may be, Carter comes in 2nd to Obama.
