    Carter, Gore, Kerry join DNC speaker list
    By Sara Burnett, Rocky Mountain News (Contact)


    Jimmy Carter, John Kerry and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley will be among the speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention, organizers announced today.


    Former Vice President Al Gore also is scheduled to speak at Invesco Field at Mile High on the night Sen. Barack Obama accepts his party's nomination, according to published reports.

    Carter will probably state that we should have boycotted these Olympics, too.

    Having Jimmy Carter speak at the Dem Convention is about like having Axl Rose speak to our senior adult group...it might be eventful, but it sure won't be successful.

    Carter- Loser that loves anyone that hates America.
    Gore- Loser turned fiction writer.
    Kerry- Traitor turned loser. Still thinks he's relevant.


    What can these three tell democrats that they need to hear? :confused:

    Democrats have never had a desire to hear what they "need" to hear, only what they "want" to hear. It is a party of unfulfillable dreams, and idealism that will never be possible. In other words, they cant satisfy every whim of every special intersest nut group but yet they still promise to. And the special interest groups (enviromentalists, gays, NOW, NAACP, ACLU, abortion activists, ect) flock to the alter of liberalism to hear the false promises.

    Clinton's rendition of "We Shall Overcome" got all of the left wing dreamist all teary-eyed, but in 8 years he never overcame anything, not even his own lusts.

    Obama is a another example. I wish the war in Iraq was over, but we cant leave until it is finished. His dreams of economic equality are equal to socialism (even Clinton promised this and couldnt deliver), and his willingness to befriend rogue terrorist nations is just reckless....but these are the unrealistic dreams of the democratic party, and this is what they want to hear. Kerry, Carter and Gore are great choices for speakers at a convention of folks who believe in fairy tales.

    I am grateful for our current president who had the fortitude to go against silly idealism, and and prevent further terrorist attacks within our borders.

    I'm sorry you seem to have only distain for the first American President who openly called himself a born-again Christian and meant it. I suppose it's not about having Christian leadership at all. For you, it's about party politics as usual.

    If you are referring to Carter, indeed it is his politics I disdain.

    Not his Christianity.

    In case you may have missed it, this is a "politics" forum.

    Having liberal Christian leadership is almost the same as not having a Christian leader at all.

    Unlike Carter, I do not believe Obama is a Christian.

    IMO, Carter was the only true Democrat ever in office. What I mean by that is that he really believes in what he stands for politically. I dont agree with what he stood for, but at least he wasnt fake about it. The Clintons and Obama only stand for what they think the people want to hear, and that is subject to change daily. Carter has been true to his beliefs for over 30 years and has not changed one bit.

    While I totally disagree with Carter's politics, I do admire him for his faith in God, and his honesty.

    Great post AJ, I agree with you. I disagree with Carter on most of his politics and a lot of his theology but I have great respect for his honesty, integrity and courage to stand up and take action based on his beliefs.

    Not only has he held firm to his beliefs for 30 years he has also never hesitated to speak up and take action based on them. His meddling in international politics seldom brings the results we would like to see, but at least he is out there trying to do something.

    I remember a political cartoon from the Clinton era that showed the former presidents alive at that time (Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush, and Carter). The first four are on a golf course complaining that Carter was to busy to show up for their little get together. On the other pane Carter is on the roof of a habitat for humanity house with a hammer in his hand talking on a phone about monitering upcoming elections in one country while two other leaders wait for him to get off the roof and mediate their dispute.

    Like I said, I seldom agree with him, but have great respect for him.
