He is quoted as saying "when Secretary Clinton was Secretary of State, she took very little action to bring about peace."

You would think they would be PROUD of her for it - it's her legacy, right? And why they want her back.

Instead, they are now attacking Jimmy Carter. When I compare the difference in post presidential activities - Habitat for Humanity versus the money laundering Clinton Foundation -

Like most memes from that side it doesn't have any basis in reality.

Seeing just the headlines, I was afraid he had endorsed Hillary. Mr. President, I apologize for doubting you, even for a moment.

Former President Carter says Hillary Clinton “took very little action” as secretary of State to bring about peace.

Carter, 89, made the remark about the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic front-runner in a phone interview with Time magazine Wednesday night after he spoke at the Civil Rights Summit in Austin, Texas.

John Kerry has been successful as secretary of State, Carter said, because President Obama has been deeply involved in the foreign policy issues of his second term.

“In this occasion, when Secretary Clinton was Secretary of State, she took very little action to bring about peace. It was only John Kerry’s coming into office that reinitiated all these very important and crucial issues,” he said.

Kerry’s efforts in the Middle East are “notable,” said Carter, who added he has “great admiration” for him.

the only fucking thing they are talking about is Bill and his attack on BLM.

And of course they are all aghast that Bernie would attack Bill on a bill Sanders voted for (without of course mentioning the context.)

They are also careful not to put Bill's words into the context the were spewed in, nor would they even mention the words at all.

And of course, no mention of Carter at all.

because I saw it as them leaving him out. You have put a different perspective on it and I thank you. I like the idea that he chooses to not belong in the club. Thank you.

Based on his post presidency actions I believe he does not want any part of the club, and the fact that he speaks truth about Israel seals that deal.

Jimmy Carter is entitled to his opinion. Jimmy Carter has done a lot of good in the world and I'm glad he is still engaged.

Go back to your narrative that people are hating on Jimmy Carter.

He will endorse her if she's the nominee and she thinks it could help her. He'd do it for the party.
