I voted for Jimmy Carter. I also wondered why I could not afford a house with double digit interest rates. I had a political awakening after that time period that I'll save for another blog. I just want to say that there was a time that I thought Jimmy would make a good president, even if he had a can of Billy Beer, a handful of peanuts and his Cardigan sweater while sitting in front of the fireplace or while walking down Pennsylvania Avenue.
In recent years Jimmy has not been impressing me with his comments. My comment to Jimmy, and it seems even from more and more Democrats within the last few hours, is that criticizing President Obama does not make one a racist! I'm sure that he has useful comments based on the experience that a former President has gained, but inflammatory and condescending comments like that serve no purpose other than to divide the country more than it presently is.
My second quick comment was that I sent off a thank you message to Senator Russell Feingold. He has spoken out and questioned the appointing of these so called Czars and that they are circumventing power that the constitution has placed with the Senate. His comment offers a bit of hope that some Democrats are admitting that enough is way too much.
