Carter's Superiority complex

Carter: 'Probably superior' to other ex-presidents

What he said:

"I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents."

What he meant:

"What I meant was, for 27 years the Carter Center has provided me with superior opportunities to do good."

Comment: He was not as distant from people as Obama. But his administration did not accomplish much.


  1. Proverbs 27:2 comes to mind with many politicians, but Carter takes the cake with this one. I thank God every day that Carter is a FORMER President, though--and hopefully the day will come soon when I thank God that Obama is a former President. Carter was incompetent, Clinton was dishonest, and Obama combines the worst features of both.

  2. I thought this was good: Jimmy Carter Says US More Polarized Than During Civil War

    "I don’t live in the alternate universe that you call home and I am not privy to the distorted reality of pretty colors and fanciful imaginings that you clearly have on lock-down, so I fail to see how the polarization of 2010 even remotely resembles that of the 1860’s. John Boehner may rather gnaw off his arm than sit down for lunch with Nancy Pelosi, but he’s not petitioning Ohio to take up arms against California. Bipartisan may even be a word lost to antiquity, but in no way, shape, form, or fashion does partisan disagreement and stalemate give rise to a polarized climate anywhere near that which gave rise to the American Civil War.

    Jimmy Carter. You may believe you are the most “superior” former president in American history. I’m fine with that. Believe as you choose to believe. I once believed in the Easter Bunny and the XFL too. That said, there are but two constants that will ultimately be aligned with your legacy – that you were one of the worst presidents in American history and the fact that you are, were, and always will be nothing more than a afterthought save for ridiculous remarks such as this to be etched on the epitaph of your history."
