Rmoney's Cheap Shot

I know that Rmoney is a complete dufus, a spoiled rotten rich kid who thinks the Presidency was preordained to be his in some Mormon fantasy/prophecy, but his cheap shot against President Carter was a new low, even for him.

In response to a report's question about whether Rmoney would have made the decision to kill Bin Laden, Rmoney had the temerity to say: even Jimmy Carter would have got that one right.

Now, I, like everyone, wished the hostage situation would have had a better outcome for President Carter, and he was the victim of a lot of bad circumstances, especially economically, and I won't say he was the best President we had in the 20th century. If anything, he may have been too nice to be President. But he is a honorable, indeed, truly great human being. He has done more to earn my respect since he left office than any former President I can think of.

For Rmoney to say what he did tells me everything I ever need to know about Rmoney's true character, and it ain't pretty.

In short, he's a snake in the grass, as my father would have said.

How anybody can vote for this worm is beyond me.

1. "He has done more to earn my respect since he left office than any former President I can think of."

I've been saying that for years. Good post.

5. I'm sort of amazed at the idea people have that one can be too "nice" to be POTUS

Why shouldn't the POTUS be an honest person?

It's one thing to cynically say you can't get elected without being someone who runs over other people. But to say that and admire it it another thing.

6. You site two things I never said.

One, that I admire a POTUS ability to "run over people" and two, that POTUS must be dishonest. Never said either one. However, the world is a very hard and often unforgiving place...not my choice but that's the way it sometimes is, and maybe you haven't figured that out yet. I think any President has to have a hard edge to stand up to things that are wrong, and to get others to do what he/she feels needs to be done. I'm not sure Jimmy Carter had that, although he had many other fine qualities, honesty and honor among them, which I admire.
