Jimmy Carter: I never said Obama protesters were racist

Via Breitbart. Evidently the entire country, including the White House, misunderstood what he meant by “intensely demonstrated” when he said, “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African-American.” That’s the money quote from the interview that aired on NBC on September 15 — just six days after Joe Wilson’s outburst and three days after the 9/12 Project’s massive rally in D.C. Compare and contrast the before and after below. I wonder which Obama aide was tasked with dialing him up and insisting upon this highly nuanced bit of revisionism. Rahm, you think? Or is this an Axelrod special?

What a piece of work. Carter is a racist thug himself and can’t fathom how the average American thinks. He should go back and write another nasty book about the Jewish people, or declare the next election illegal like he did 2 weeks prior to ’04 FROM CARACAS. He is in bed with our enemies!!!

Why is that senile old SOB relevant to anything?
He has the same influence on me as my neighbors dog
that craps on my lawn.

The Media needs to stop giving him press coverage until it is time for his obituary.

“Must See” Jeopardy Panel:

Carter Blitzer Jesse Jackson

Has it ever happened that no one could on to final Jeopardy?

BTW, did Blitzer pay back his Final Jeopardy loan yet?
