    Maybe he will be another Jimmy Carter...a better former president than president.

    I think that Bush would have been a much better president without Dick Cheney. Their post-term comments seem to indicate this.

    Carter has not kept his mouth shut. And Bush is certainly showing more class than the current admin as they constantly criticize Bush.

    President George W.Bush conducted himself with "class" as president and I am not surprised that that practice will continue.

    In contrast, Carter and Clinton don't know what "class" is.

    I am glad he said that though, it shows that he is above what seems to be happening around him. He is not going to lower himself to engage in talking down about obama.

    Another ridiculous statement. Carter has contributed a great deal with his Habitat for Humanity program and won the Nobel peace prize. Bush is just talking here as usual. I'll wait until he makes a positive contribution to come up this conclusion.

    That Carter and Gore could win a Nobel Peace prize indicates how politicized that prize has become. Didn't Arafat win one?

    Both Carter and Gore have gone around the world showing their <inappropriate comment deleted - LE, changed to "ignorance">; Carter lets his mouth gat ahead of his brain and Gore obsesses about global warming.

    Clinton would still be womanizing except for his fear of his heart and Hillary.

    JC your master may be next in line for this years peace prize for closing GTMO.

    "his Habitat for Humanity program"? Carter didn't start the HFH program. He participated, but he didn't start it.

    peace to you:praying:

    Don't forget that Clinton and GHWB teamed up to raise money for charity and to help the tsunami victims. I guess that doesn't count for squat with some.

    I do appreciate Carter's H4H contributions.

    However, in recent years, he has repeatedly broken the unwritten rule of former presidents: don't criticize the current administration.

    As has Clinton.

    Lack of class on both their parts.

    Agreed!

    Carter continued to meddle in national and international affairs.... He never spared giving his opinion.

    The fruits of his administration was that of unrest in the middle east; disposing of our mid-east allies and increased tensions; inflation, recession and higher taxes.

    Interest rates for a 30year first mortgage was 13 and 3/4 percent!

    Personally, I'd like to see most politicos (from all points on the spectrum) do what I said to my own nephew:

    "Show 'em a little bit of the class, you ain't got!"

    You guys keeping LE busy in this thread. :thumbsup:

    I thought every new administration blamed the previous one as long as they could. I think it was Eisenhower who told Kennedy to blame him if he had to go to Vietnam and that he would stand by his side while he made the announcement. I guess LBJ didn't get in on that deal.
