Carter - walking it back;

His original remarks;


YouTube - Jimmy Carter Claims Obama Opponents Are Racist

Quote:
"The overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity towards Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man."
The backtrack - senile old koot.


YouTube - carter talks race and obama

I think Candy was flabbergasted.

Except.....you never said what you just said you said. What an arrogant fool.

See now, if I were interviewing him, I would have had his exact remarks to refute his backtrack.

This change, which became quite evident in 1972 with the electoral success of Richard Nixon's "Southern Strategy", peaked with the elections of Ronald Reagan in 1980 and George H. W. Bush in 1988. It was consolidated in 1994 when Republicans gained a majority in the House of Representatives under the leadership of Newt Gingrich."

Dixiecrat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Please give me just one reason why you think the Democrats want a "race war".........you know, your logic here is just wrong.
Race war would be overstating it.
A high degree of racial conflict? Yes.
Without conflict, no perceived need for dems.

Name one person or group that dislikes blacks because of skin color.

I think Carter was just fumbling with his choice of words and that there was no mal-intent on his part. He was talking about a black child who was able to grow grow up in this country and (at the time) run for President. This attack on him is just as bad as the attacks liberals make upon conservatives when a slip-of-the-tongue occurs. (And I'm a conservative.)

Carter is anti-Semitic why is it a stretch for him to be a racist too.

I thnik carter's boat docked when his own staff said he lied in his own book.That is why no one really cares what he says now. I do think thsi was a slip of the tongue but then he made his bed with his prior statements on race.

Carter is a terrorist-supporter, a racebaiter, a liar, a distorter of history, and represents a disastrous presidency the consequences which we are still paying for.

He's been on this earth too long. My regret is that when he finally croaks we will have to go through the ordeal of a national holiday and the phony eulogies simply because he was an ex-president. It will be ridiculous.
