A new biography of Jimmy Carter opens with a scene that summarizes the former president’s tendency to envision the future while sometimes remaining tone-deaf to the present.
Jimmy Carter's long silence on segregation in the '50s & '60s(when he knew better) is akin to our long silence on police brutality (when we knew better). An adaptation of a portion of my new Carter biography, available on pre-order.
JUST IN: Former Pres. Jimmy Carter on Ruth Bader Ginsburg: "She has been a beacon of justice during her long and remarkable career. I was proud to have appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1980."
Opinion: Jimmy Carter's example from his first full day in office provides an example of how we might think about trying to move forward together, writes Dr. David Drake.
NEW: Former president Jimmy Carter says a full investigation “would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016….He was put into office because the Russians interfered.” Does that mean he’s an illegitimate president? “Based on what I said, which I can’t retract.”
Stupid and evil are two very different things. Jimmy Carter was the stupidest president in our lifetime, seeking good results but constantly failing. Obama was the most evil, successfully working to gangsterize our politics and to diminish US power and wealth
Thinking of Jimmy Carter today. He was working hard helping others through Habitat. I wish him a speedy recovery.
