Someday soon, probably within a year or two, Jimmy Carter is going to die. At that time, there will undoubtedly be a resounding roar of the bitter to denounce him and hope that he rots in hell, just as a segment of idiots on the left did after Reagan died. I admire Carter immensely and believe the world will be worse off when he passes. I was very young during his Administration, but I remember pretty vividly how often he was lampooned, particularly on SNL. Historically, people seem pretty bitter about his time in office, and if that was the only thing he'd ever done, I might look less favorably on him too.
After he left office, I believe that Carter the man superseded Carter the POTUS. Instead of just heading off to do nothing but play golf and give speeches to homogenous crowds, Carter went out and did things to try and help make the world a better place. I'm sure there are some who will crap even on those efforts. History and a chorus of idiots will likely always have scorn for Carter, and admirably, he could care less because he is busy doing important things. Give Carter another ten years of life, I bet he'd spend 8 of it counting ballots or building houses in some crappy part of the world. We need more people like him.
