I have never been a fan of Jimmy Carter even though the media lauds him and his post-Presidential activities. Some of those activities, like his work with Habitat for Humanity, are commendable. Some of his Presidential choices, like giving away the Panama Canal when most Americans were against it, were a usurpation of his Presidential authority. You would think that he would have learned that America disagreed with him when he lost his second Presidential bid. But, no, he continues to lecture –or is it hector — us?. Whatever you call it, that holier than thou attitude is beginning to pall on most of us.
Maybe he did know better than us. Maybe he did not.
However, although we believe in Freedom of Speech, and he has the right to speak his mind, there is a standard for Good Manners which many of us in Fly-Over territory still appreciate. So, when former President Carter calls our current President a “jerk”, is there any excuse for such bad manners? How does his insulting comment help our country? Does he care whether he is aiding and abetting our enemies by denigrating the man who now sits in the Oval Office? One wonders if his Momma ever taught him good manners.
Unfortunately, Democrats are more interested in knocking President Trump down than whether their speech and actions are good for America or not. Their group mentality, if there is anything mental involved in their attitudes, is relentlessly set in the direction of destroying President Trump. So, they undoubtedly will snicker and applaud Carter for going on a radical, Lieberal (yes, lying) tv show and insulting the man elected to return America to greatness.
It is so out of the bounds of common decency! When will good manners return to the public arena? When will Democrats start acting as they should and when will they begin promoting the public good and not their own political careers? Who or what is served by Carter throwing public insults at Conservatives and President Trump? Maybe he learned those bad manners from the most recent Democrat who lost, Hillary Clinton. I mean, come on. How does it help America when Schumer and Pelosi viciously attack the President of the United States?
It’s sad to see that many Democrats act like children, bullying others because, with the media support, there are no consequences for them acting like thugs. Just like the worst of the schoolyard bullies whom we all want to keep from hurting others, they rally around even the worst among them and promote their hateful agenda of destruction. It’s worse than childish. It’s poisonous to America. So, I hope Democrats will start acting like mature adults and actually begin helping President Trump.
Unfortunately, I fear that will never happen. Why? Because, they are NOT statesmen nor stateswomen.
No, like Jimmy Carter and Hillary Clinton and Al Gore, they are sore losers!
