Jimmy Carter Lies Democrats Are Guys.
By Lloyd Hart
On Thursday night this week former president Jimmy Carter destroyed all and any credibility he had as an election observer by blaming Ralph Nader for former Vice President Al Gore's loss in his presidential bid in election 2000. The former president was also insulting toward presidential candidate Ralph Nader by telling him to "go back to umpiring softball games or examining the rear end of automobiles, and don't risk costing the Democrats the White House this year as you did four years ago."
If this is Jimmy Carter's real postion on Nader and about what happened in election 2000 then we have to ask what the hell is Jimmy Carter's gang doing in Venezuela right now or has done in all the elections that Jimmy Carter's organization has observed throughout the years past.
Besides the fact 250,000 Democrats willingly voted for Bush in Florida in election 2000, there were close to 140,000 names scrubbed from the voter list by gov. Jeb Bush and Secretary of state Katherine Harris, the majority being African-American, 99% overall being Democrat. There was also the very scary scam of the Republican activists filling out absentee ballots in what was clearly an attempt to stuff the ballot box with false absentee ballots. So what the fricking hell was Jimmy Carter talking about.
While Jimmy Carter was charging the Bush administration with misrepresenting the truth and lying about the link between Saddam Hussein and 9/11 he was lying himself about what happened in Florida and Ralph Nader's role in it.
This is exactly why Ralph Nader is claiming there is very little difference between the two major parties. The example here being Bush lies, Carter lies. No difference between a leading Republican and a leading Democrat. Do I need mentioned the paper thin difference in terms of results from policy implementation in the lives of Americans.
This kind of contradictory behavior on the part of Democrats is replete throughout the entire history of the party as well as in modern history. In fact the Carter administration lied by omission by not telling the American public that the public would be spending their tax dollars on a radical Muslim fundamentalists in Afghanistan so that they could fight the Russian backed left-wing government and after the Russian invasion the occupation that ensued. George Bush might be a fascist lying prick but Jimmy Carter does absolutely no one any service by lying about Ralph Nader.
Democrats need to get over themselves. There are serious reasons why people are not voting in majorities in America let alone for the Democratic Party. They have to do with issues that are not been addressed and the ineffectiveness of the Democratic Party in Congress and the legislatures throughout the land.
After being appointed out of turn in an arrogant power grab by Bill Clinton when it was actually Gore's turn to appoint the chairman of the DNC, chairman Terry McAuliffe has completely given up on winning back the House of Representatives and has shown nothing but cowardice and detachment while Tom DeLay cut up Texas's congressional districts along extreme partisans and racist lines in order to increase Republican dominance in the House in Washington.
Of course DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe does not want to rock the boat because that would expose the racist redistricting on the part of Thomas Finnerin Speaker of the Massachusetts House in the state of Massachusetts where the Democratic National Convention will be hosted in Boston. It took brave minority activists suing the Democratic Party in Massachusetts and a brave federal judge who recently ruled against the Democratic Party's racist redistricting to expose the racism inherent in Massachusetts political structures.
Do I need to mention that the photographs in the nation's newspapers of the event where Carter made his remarks regarding Ralph Nader the Democratic Unity Gala had only men standing on the stage attempting to show Party unity. Democrats my ass!
