Carter Likes Romney, Appreciates Bachmann

Carter Likes Romney, Appreciates Bachmann

 

When it comes to the GOP field for the nomination, we’ve already learned that former President Bill Clinton is a bit of a Jon Huntsman fan and was surprised at how good of a candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was (or was back in the beginning of July, at least).  Now, former President Jimmy Carter is weighing in on the candidates, too, and it’s probably unsurprising that he likes former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney best of all.  He did, however, tell MSNBC that he appreciates the help that he received from Bachmann, who often tells the public that she cut her political teeth on Carter’s campaign, back when she was a Democrat.

Still, Carter, much like Clinton, finds it unlikely that any of the current candidates will beat President Barack Obama in 2012, saying he’s confident Obama will be reelected.

Then again, considering how Carter did the second time around, maybe that’s not the best of omens.

They are just cheerleaders for the ruling forces... but some kinds of cheers are more reasonable and create an atmospheric conditon in the country some can stand better than others... but they all morph into Stepford Presidents stepping in each others footsteps... who is the chief choreographer? the shadow government knows...

I used to like Jimmy and used think highly of him. But is dementia setting in?

Where is Dennis Kuccinch? We could use some non-corporate, down to the earth, sensible candidate that would work hard for real changes! I hope Barack will come back to center more and seems to be catering too much from the major problems the Bush Administration left us and courting those Fat Cat Republicans.

Carter is an old Southern fool. He is a racist and anti-Semite. In addition he is a phony and a hypocrite.

I have faith in Obama and thus far if you look the way he and his Administration has dismantle the Al Qaeda regime, its very commendable. What really affects his presidency now is employment, the closure of Gitmo and the overall American economy. If he can turn 2 of the 3 things around before June of 2012, I think he will be re-elected again.

Taken with a grain of salt..its his opinion, not an endorsement!

President Carter is human too and has a right to voice his opinions too. No matter what it may be, we still have a choice too. Thanks Robin

One thing that is apparent, some people do not understand what this means. No matter who a person plans on voting for, he will have an opinion on other candidates. This is just what that imparts. In this case it is Carter's opinion on the Republican candidates and nothing else.
