Jimmy Carter's grandson strikes again

‎'You probably remember back in September when Jimmy Carter's grandson, James Carter IV, was instrumental in digging up and helping publicize Romney's 47% video. We all enjoyed the poetic justice of the moment that very likely contributed to Romney's defeat.

Now James Carter IV is at it again, this time digging up actual audio of Republican strategist Lee Atwater explaining the "Southern Strategy":'

57. That's how Carter IV rolls!

I remember Jimmy Carter winning when I was young.

I grew up Christian. The son of deacons.

Carter was and is a deacon.

The job of a deacon, when you sum it up is to help people. When they are sick and shut in, it is the deacons who act --- no not just act, but are compelled to act.

I grew up with that tradition and I saw in Carter a true deacon.

I am not Christian anymore. I am an Atheist now.

But I still have the same feeling about Carter.

In every thing he did as President. And everything he did after (Habitat for Humanity), I can always respect him.

And his son... :::smile::: a chip off the old block. He warms my heart just like his dad still does.

Godspeed, Carter IV.

59. Sweet revenge for propoganda campaign against his grandfather Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter could have broken up the building Southern Strategy when he got elected in 1976.
He got the racist South on his side despite him not being a racist.
The Republicans hadn't fully locked down that Solid South quite yet.
They HAD to make him look weak so they could lock down that strategy.
4 years later Ronald Reagan gets in there & locks the Southern Strategy down for good.
And we all had to suffer for the past 30 years because of it.

James Carter IV will avenge the defeat of James Carter II & I'm glad that he's doing it.
Chickens are coming home to roost for the Republican Party.
It's time to slay this dragon once & for all.

19. My thoughts exactly

 

With Lee Atwater we saw a monster. A powerful, talented, greedy and ego driven bastard who broke all the standards of decency while tearing the hearts out of many innocent people.

Then came his terminal cancer...

Can't take it w/ya, eh Lee?

and he finally saw himself standing before God in all his shame. He even wrote about this during his final days.

I can't quite bring myself to feel sorry for Lee but his sense of personal shame must have been a catastrophe.

...wasn't fit to lick the sweat off one of Atwater's monstrously engorged balls.

That might be why there was so little pleasure in watching Atwater's recanting and his drawn out death. It was tough to muster up anything but sorrow, for most of that wasted life.

It's not about whether you believe in a God; rather, it's about viewing it from rove's perspective, a self-confessed believer. In the end, HE will be faced with HIS beliefs system ... and that would be HIS answering to HIS God.

He also apologized to everyone he had hurt. Can you imagine that, being on your deathbed and having to worry about all those you had hurt during your lifetime?

http://news.spreadit.org/lee-atwaterlee-atwater-s-deathbed-confession/

"Lee Atwater:Lee Atwater’s Deathbed Confession – Lee Atwater who was George HW Bush’s political consultant and strategist has his life story told on PBS’ Frontline earlier tonight.Lee Atwater who was also Karl Rove’s mentor was once called the “most evil man in America,” because he often aimed to completely destroy his opponent’s character.Lee Atwater’s Deathbed Confession before dying of tumors is as followed:

'I was wrong to follow the meanness of Conservatism. I should have been trying to help people instead of take advantage of them. I don’t hate anyone anymore. For the first time in my life I don’t hate somebody. I have nothing but good feelings toward people. I’ve found Jesus Christ – It’s that simple. He’s made a difference.'"

and all of his acolytes will do the same and atone.

I always try not to hate...and it's difficult. Especially during the 2nd term of W. But I never act on hate. I may fantasize like in a movie...but never act on it.

Look at all of the Southerners who are demanding Secession! All I thought of doing was moving to Vermont...or better yet France. I still think of moving to France....great food and an appreciation of the quality of life.

But I actually think things are looking UP here in the US...well, most of it. Now I want to move to Colorado and get mellow.

I could see Rove atoning in the same way if faced with death with time for reflection the same way Atwater did. But if he dies of old age or suddenly (like a massive heart attack), then you can forget about it. It's not happening. All those rightwing cats like Rove, Limbaugh, Norquist, etc, are making huge income off being cruel bastards. Surely you know that Limbaugh doesn't actually believe that stuff he spews over the mike. He's just willing to say anything for millions per year knowing he couldn't make an honest income doing anything else.

they all have evil hearts full of hatred. And they make $$ off of that cruel heart. It's easy for them.

They may spew a few shreds that are extreme, but it's not much of a stretch for them.

Limpballs looks like he'll explode at any moment. Rove will probably have some sort of disease like Atwater. I wonder what Coulter will endure. Her last book isn't selling...that is a true turn in the tide of America given that my local library would order 2 or 3 copies of each of her books. I used to hide them in various places of the library! I imagine they did the same with my Hightower and Begeant books.

73. I too try not to hate, but there are some people whose words and actions

make themselves contemptible. And so I cannot help but hold them in contempt. Karl Rove was Atwater's protege. He learned his dirty tricks at the foot of the master, the man also known as the dirtiest man in politics. He charted his own course.

And the Southerners demanding secession ... haven't they read the Constitution, or even reviewed history lessons? I think this must be a PR maneuver more so than anything else because I cannot believe that everyone coming out for secession thinks it is actually doable.

good or evil (words to that effect)? He then said the Republicans play to the lesser side of us human beings. That is so true. Just think about all of the despicable words and actions they have prompted people in our society to say or do.

I refuse to allow anything a Republican says change my nature. I just am comfortable being the person I decided a long time ago to be. So that is just something for you to think about: don't let others' bad behavior make you behave badly.

Nice talking to you.

75. I think the only difference between Cheney and Rove is the scope or reach of their influence

There is no question Rove's presence in politics has tremendously hurt this Country. But he is simply a political strategist and his reach has been limited. Cheney was the Vice President for eight years, and for the first few years, many asserted he was actually running the show. In that position, his reach extended much farther than Rove's. There is no question, however, that the depth of his political depravity was just as deep as Rove's; it is just that he had more power and his actions adversely impacted so many others beyond our borders. I am thinking of all the innocent Iraqi people who died as a result of the preemptive war on their country by our Country and I remain ashamed for this Country and what it did to that country.

It's time for all America to honor Jimmy Carter as one of the greats
For too long any democrat president has been margionalized and abused.

Time way past due to place the democrats in the top 10, and drop the Reagan's, Bush's to the bottom ten trash can where they belong

and to keep reminding people in 16 when Jeb attempts to come back.

Atwater/Rove/Karen Hughes/Ed Gillespie,etc. PURE UNADULTRATED EVIL.

Jimmy Carter, day in, day out, lives the life that the awipe repubs yap about endlessly but never follow.

And the best thing is, Jimmy Carter is still alive and doing wonderful things every day, and is seeing his political "resurrection"

I'm sure there's a Republican down here somewhere that isn't a racist, but I've never met him/her either.

38. Our James O'keefe but without the lies

James Carter IV uses the truth to expose and trip up repugs instead of dishonest trickery like O'keefe uses in his phonied up videos.

A one mans crusade, to get it right.. And a decent crusade.. He have a lot to step up to - as his grand father was a gigant - if given a lousy hand as president (he was elected the same year I was born, and for some reason he have always been a person i admire)

I wonder, is it possible for him, to get all the way up to the White House some day?.. I somehow suspect United States need politicians that is willing to fight for all, not just for the few... And mr Carter himself (his grand-daddy) have after he was stepping down doing great things to the humanity..

49. Interesting tidbit below


-snip-

Sidney Blumenthal has speculated that, had Atwater lived, he would have run a stronger re-election campaign for Bush than the President's unsuccessful 1992 effort against Bill Clinton and Ross Perot

64. How a Carter saved the nation.

There's just a beautiful sense of poetic justice of it all.

65. "Outstanding James!!"

 

Was the email James got from his grandfather after he released the 47% tape. Is it irony that a Carter tips over the GOP apple cart after they trashed Jimmy for so many years? Probably hate Jimmy because one of his causes is fair elections, he's so anti-GOP

66. "Southern Strategy"? Meh.

It's more a southern mindset which has been in effect since the loss of their slaves in the Civil War, made into rethuglican doctrine by men like Atwater and his acolyte Rove. Granted it's worked since the mid-sixties to keep the South solidly rethuglican for now on four decades, but Johnson's Great Society had a lot to do with locking this in place because of the advances that all black, poor and elderly attained through that legilsation. This locked down the South for the rethugs all those many years ago, and they haven't had to think about really running any real races down there in all that time, which left them plenty of time to bring in people like Frank Luntz and Peggy Noonan to craft a clever and cynical rebranding of their "message" to the other areas of the country to hoodwink them into thinking that the rethugs were now mellower and more progressive, and had their economic interests at heart. Well that 47% video - along with eight years of the Bush economy and the last four years of the rethuglican stall in Washington have created a strong resistence to their so-called message. Now demographics are their worst enemy and will be from now on out. With every passing day, new voters are emerging and they won't be suffering the rethuglican fools lightly. Rethugs have made it abundantly clear what they think of the average American citizen and we're clearly not in their 1% Class of those that matter to them. And if they think that doublespeak to the Latinos, Asians, elderly, female, LBGT, those in poverty, is going to make us putty in their hands, they'd better think again. We've got their numbers. And we're not going to be sweetalked into falling for them again.

68. This was rumored for many years.

 

To actually hear it being said by Atwater is something else. A big thanks to Jimmy Cater IV
