On the night after he told NBC News of his concerns about opposition to President Obama fueled by race, Former President Jimmy Carter said at a speech:

"I think people who are guilty of that kind of personal attack against Obama have been influenced by a major degree by a belief that he should not be President, because he happens to be African-American. It's a racist attitude... My expectation is, that in the future, both Democratic leaders and Republican leaders will take the initiative in condemning that kind of unprecedented attack on the President of the United States."

1. Can we like canonize him (President Carter) as a saint?
The man is trying to single handedly change the discourse in this country. Please remember this in the future.

3. Like a Firebell in the night. . .
. . .wake us up with your resounding truth-telling, Sir.

Force us to look into that belly of the beast that continues to devour the sensibilities of the Joe Wilsons of this country. . .

. . .they're not merely right-wing conservatives, heck, what Wilson spoke was downright reactionary going way back to ole Massa days. . .

I believe Maureen Dowd had it bulls-eye right when she said Wilson was really saying,"You lie, Boy!"

Soldier on, Mr. Carter, for us Americans who desperately need your unflappable leadership for human rights and dignity.

4. President Carter's additional comments in full....
Pres. Carter Stands by Obama, Racism Comment
Pres. Jimmy Carter says he still believe racism is in issue when it comes to Pres. Barack Obama getting bills through Congress. On Tuesday, Carter said there's a feeling among many in the U.S. that an African-American should not be president. (Sept. 16)

One thing he left out was the witch doctor signs that were seen at the 912 Soreloserpalooza.
